Cask@GBBF2010. Orangeish golden colour with a mediumsized off-white head that leaves slight lace. Aroma is mild fruity with some caramel malts and some slight herbal notes. Flavour is berries, fruits, some wheat and mild sweet malts. Refreshing, but not very exciting.

Cask at GBBF. Hazy gold beer. Light dry palate. Some sulphur in here but other than that - not bad! Crisp dry natural tasting raspberry, not strongly flavoured. Light sweet malt. Could have been pretty decent without the sulphur.

Leighton (10674) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 26, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 3, 2012 Gravity cask at the Bree Louise, London. Pours clear, rich gold with no head. Definitely some raspberry in the nose. Light to medium sweet flavor, a bit of raspberry and straw. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Lots of gaming - mostly Counter Strike. Lightly dry and not at all cloying to finish, with more pale malts and raspberry impressions. Pretty damn nice. (3.5)

Update, the day after writing this rate: I wrote this review after an evening of prodigious drinking and, to be honest, I have no idea what that Counter Strike reference is about. Apparently I was having an inner monologue regarding my secondary school gaming practices, answering the question: What first-person shooter games did you play? The answer, of course, would be Counter Strike.

Had this beer again some place, probably Bree Louise or some such. Pours clear, rich gold with no head (no head? Smacks of BR). Definitely some raspberry notes in the nose. Medium sweet flavor with straw first and foremost, then raspberry, some pale malts. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Moderately sweet to finish, lightly dry with decent raspberry character. Not at all cloying, which is nice. More pale malts in the aftertaste. Pretty nice in general. (3.4)

imdownthepub (10123) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 12, 2012
Cask conditioned at Fleetwood Beer Fest ’12. Gold with slight head. There is a general fruitiness, pulpy and not particularly raspberry in character. Thin close. Nothing in this for me.
