Well balanced, good looking, hops predominate without ever becoming too assertive. Apricots and fruit on the nose, and unusually for this gravity a lasting and complex finish.

From the cask, a great session beer from the consistently excellent Milton brewery. On the nose light citrus & whopping barley. A lovely fresh pale start, leads to a full bitter finish with loads of fresh, rich barley on the finish. An excellent length on the finish for a beer of this strength.

CASK @ Oakdale Arms, Harringay London N4, on 3rd June 2009. Delicious refreshing session ale with a small diminishing white head, generous hoppy notes and fruity aroma, some nuttiness in the initial kick, and delicately hoppy dry finish. A smooth, slightly saline mouthfeel - this pint was Dionysus at its best.

Straw coloured. Crystal clear with a tight white head. Apricot, peach and mango aromas, attractive hop burst on the tongue, lasting bitterness and a surprisingly strong finish for the ABV. Good.

<i>Cask Conditioned at The Pembury Tavern, London</i>
Hazy blond color. Light malty aroma, with very light fruity hops. Fair malt and toffee flavor, good bitterness (lightly resinous), but missing some punch, the flavor seems <i>flat</i>.
