Cask; Regular.
Colour: Golden yellow. The use of Mount Hood as the aroma hop gives this beer a pungent hoppy fruitiness; think citrus fruit notably lime. There is also a hint of cereal malt on the nose which evokes the spirit of the mash from whence the beer came. On the palette the overwhelming sensation is citrus fruit (lime marmalade but also overripe grapes spring to mind) along with warming alcoholic esters before a bitter, hoppy and dry finish which is enlivened by lasting citrus (lime) and grainy malt making a late surge. A delicious blonde beer to be taken with care.

Cask @ The Rake, Borough, London. Pour a clear yellow color with a small white head. Hoppy malty and fruity aroma. Sweet malty hoppy flavor. Long malty finish with some bitterness in the aftertaste.

MrRomero (1976) - Nolanville, USA - AUG 23, 2007
Hand pulled at 12 Bells, Cirencester, England: poured yellow/orange with a creamy white head. Grain and fruit aroma. Quite a bit of citrus and flowery. Drank 2 pints of this. Mild sweetness on the tongue with a light bitter finish. Pretty tasty.

downender (7846) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 16, 2007
Cask conditioned at the Inn on the Green, Bristol 16/5/07. Clear gold with a light head that left plenty of lacing. Light aroma of floral hops followed by flavours of citrus and biscuity malt. Very subdued for a 5% beer and not a patch on the same brewery’s Nick’s Beer.

Cask. Orange-golden, clear and non-carbonating beer with some white head. Mild, pleasant hoppyness in the aroma, with just some malt-notes. Some fruitiness and sweetness too. Flavor is malty, yet hoppy and fruity. Some pine-cones. Medium body and a long, bitter finish. Quite quaffable hoppy beer. (060712)

imdownthepub (13033) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 3, 2006
Cask conditioned at The Griffin, Frome, Somerset. Orange coloured with light head. Again a sweetish malty bitter, big farmy, sulpher nose, like a poor mans Pedigree when that was brewed properly. his was ok, but again not in great condition, a touch flabby. Disapointing.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 2, 2005
Cask@Crosse Keys, Central London. Pretty dull. Not much flavour stands out, and it does have a lagery grainy sweetness, with a grainy dry-ish finish, some citrus in their, not very interesting, but easy to drink.
