garthicus (2693) - Dublin, IRELAND - SEP 28, 2013
On cask at the brew dock. Appearance: hazy vibrant orange, medium Snow white head. Aroma: Fruity, quite a decent amount of hops in the nose, mango peel too. Flavour: Bitter at first, some grain in the flavour with a nice light hoppiness that makes way to a citrus like finish. Decent.

JorgeLee (1223) - Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 29, 2013
Cask at the Garden Gate NW3. Amber colour, thin line of foam. A nice strongly bitter beer, very appetising and moreish, floral, some grapefruit, a little sherbert. Nice.

Osprey87 (1798) - WALES - FEB 14, 2014
Cask at Southwark Tavern. It’s a mostly clear dark orange, just slightly hazy, still, small white bubbly head. Smell - toned down orange, what I call ’cheesy’ hops. Body is medium, low carbonation, quite smooth. Taste is pretty nice - lots of tangy marmalade with an assertive musty bitterness bordering on sour. The resinous finish makes this a bit of a slower drinking experience. Decent.

BlackHaddock (3882) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - SEP 1, 2014
Hand-pulled pint in the Pure Bar and Kitchen, Birmingham on 30th Aug 2014. Poured a clear golden hue with a full white head. Piney, resinous hop nose and taste with a good bitterness from the start in the flavour. Malts hide behind the strong hop front. Dry finish and most enjoyable.

Leighton (11299) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 10, 2013
Keg at the Euston Tap - London. Shared with Ken-O during our excursion. Pours clear gold with a lasting, creamy white head. Some bready malts in there, light tangy tangerine. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Light toasty doughy bread to finish, some orange and further tangerine. Decent.
