Cask at The Punch Bowl in York. Pours translucent brassy gold with a creamy near-white head. Aroma is unusual fruit. Med body. Flavor is sort of a mixed earthy/fruit with some tropical fruit notes. Complex to me. Finishing dry and bitter. Really quite nice

Cask conditioned at The Turf Tavern, Oxford. Pale gold with white head. I hope I have the spelling right for this one, beer mail me if I haven’t. Lovely fresh, fruity hoppy flavours on a crisp light body. Passion fruit notes with a hint of kiwi. Very refreshing and tasty.

The Felix Holt, Nuneaton, 13/04/13. Creamy pale gold laced up to the nines. Grass, shrub, lemon wine gum aroma. Excellent juicy wine gum grass and biscuit notes. Tangy like a lager/GA hybrid. One of the best of the fest.

ManVsBeer (6461) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 16, 2013
Pale golden with a thick creamy head. It is well hopped with this character perhaps more evident in its body and tastes than its aroma. It’s also very light and crisp making it easy to drink although has a dry finish.
