Cask; Regular.
A beer which shouts hop, hop, hop all the way from the rich hop character on the nose (orange marmalade, hop sacks and a hint of passion fruit) to the rich citrus fruit palette (Seville orange peel, kumquats and lime) to the lasting bitter and hoppy finish with more fruit than a fruit counter at Sainsbury’s as well as some malt dryness. One for the hop heads anywhere.

Scopey (12711) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 1, 2013
Cask at The Claret. It pours deep amber with medium beige head. The nose is earth, toast, wood, dark fruit and berry. The taste is wood, earth, leather, wood polish, decent bitterness, toast, orange peel and a touch of spice with a dry finish. Medium body and soft carbonation. A smooth, well balanced bitter. Good stuff.

HogTownHarry (6376) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - AUG 28, 2012
Handpull at The Wenlock Arms. Clear deep amber, no head. Aroma and taste is mostly papery diacetyl - herbal and cocoa roast in behind, no alcohol - nominally less annoying in the taste. Average body, still, harsh aftertaste. A little bleagh.

leaparsons (9949) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 22, 2010
Cask, The Criterion, Leicester. Amber with an off-white foam. Aromas are base toffee malts withelon, kiwi and cream. Light prickley grapefruit with spiced oranges. Malty with fruity notes coming through when it sees fit. Flavours are sweet and smooth toffee and chocolate with lots of jammy fruitiness. Lots of great fruity hops with some earthy notes. Grapefruit pithy bitterness on the finish with a dry aftertaste. Somewhere between a golden ale and an ESB. Very nice.
