3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: AUG 15, 2013 Cask @ The Porterhouse, Dublin. Hazy blonde, thin white head, great lacing. Lovely resinous, floral aroma, hints of summer fruits. Mellow hop, floral taste. Tastes like a packet of digestives in a glass. Nice background hop bitterness. Touch watery in the body. Flat carbonation from the cask. Bit of metallic in the finish. Doesn?t quite work, overrated. Related on keg, better.

Cask at Hilden Fest 2012 - 25/08/12.
Slightly hazed copper orange in colour - not a pale ale in my book!
Sweet malt nose leaning towards caramel.
Tastes a little of ripe tangy fruit with a bitter sweet finish, medium body with a commensurate level of carbonation.

On tap at Magpie’s in Dalkey, Dublin. Pours a clear copper with a great head. Aroma and flavor match, mildish but with this really great grassy dry bite.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Half a pint from tap at the Porterhouse in Dublin. Clear golden with a (small) white head. Spicy aroma (cardamom?) with hops, some fruit and notes of metal. A bit metallic taste with some bitterness, not so pleasant, a bit strange. Hints of citrus in the flavour. Lightly bitter finish with hints of spices. Ok beer, but nothing special. (2011-06-11)

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cask conditioned at The Anchor, Birmingham. Gold with white head. This is a sharp, dry, heavily hopped beer. There is a good crisp biscuity body, light with a baked bread note. This carries a spicy, peppery hop flavour, quite intense and bitter. Really very good.
