UPDATED: FEB 19, 2009 Cask @ Pembury Tavern, Hackney 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.

fiulijn (19347) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 10, 2009
<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>.

Ethereal (2421) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JAN 2, 2009
Cask at the White Lion, Norwich, "Boxing Day Expedition" crawl, 26th Dec 08. Golden amber with no head. Honey sweet and then dry & floral at the finish. Standard weight. The hops get out onto the nose too. Nice and refreshing.

HogTownHarry (6376) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - OCT 3, 2008
Cask. At the Pembury Tavern. Cloudy light amber pour with a small head. Floral aroma with very mild caramel malt and a hint of sourness - not a lot of grain here. The taste follows - dry, floral, light grain and a real lemony sourness that oddly seems to work pretty well. It felt slick on my palate, and the body seemed quite solid - while it wasn’t a particularly bitter finish, it really took its time, leaving a dry, acidic linger that made me quite thirsty for my next beer. A nice pint, for all that.

thewolf (12135) - Kolding, DENMARK - OCT 3, 2008
Cask @ Oakdale Arms, London.
Pours hazy golden with practically no head. Wonderful, crisp aroma, good pine, fresh malts and a little honey. Low carbonation, fine mouthfeel. Flavour start malty, rather crisp, then gains a long, lingering, slightly dry hoppy aftertaste. Nice and drinkable.

Rune (11352) - Tromsø, NORWAY - SEP 4, 2008
Naked, clear golden body. Grass-oily aroma. Plain fruity taste with dry hops, juicy malts and light bitterness coming along towards the ending. Easy going summer drink (Half pint, hand-pulled at Pembury Tavern, Hackney 12.08.2008).
