Keg at The Lyric, Soho. It pours hazy cloudy orange - amber with a small white head. The nose is soft, sweet, juicy, sticky fruits, tangerine, mango and candied peel. The taste is bitter, juicy, resinous, mango, apricot, pine, pepper, sticky action, some alcohol warmth, grass and straw with a dry finish. Medium body and fine prickly carbonation. A bit chewy on the mouth-feel. Rather nice overall.

SaintMatty (6734) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - MAR 28, 2013
Draught (Monks Cafe, Wallingatan, Stockholm) - Amber in colour. Grapefruit, lemon, tea and malt in the aroma. Refreshing and hoppy taste with notes of lemon, grapefruit and honey standing out.

gyllenbock (7557) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 23, 2013
On tap at Monks Cafe, Wallingatan. (thanks SaintMatty) Clear dark golden with a medium white head. Aroma of grass, fruit, citrus and some malt. About the same in the taste. On the dry side and medium bitter. Nothing sensational but drinkable.

wyzzywyz22 (2108) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - MAR 15, 2013
Bottle from Chester Beer & Wine. Murky amber pour with a dissipating yet lingering off white head. Pineapple, ganja like hop and sweet malt nose. Great fullish mouthfeel. Slightly sweet flavour with tropical fruit notes of melon and grapefruit, that gives way to a steadily building hop bitterness. Robust, satisfying and lengthy finish. The Jester looks like a win on this evidence.

a_cross (639) - Poole, Dorset, ENGLAND - MAR 10, 2013
Bottle; gold/amber, clear, frothy white head; good peachy aroma; peachy flavour too, alongside citrus peel, salt and pepper; very bitter; fizzy; much too aggressively bitter in my book, only partially saved by the hop flavour; didn’t enjoy it, which I’m sad to say as a bit of a Moor fan.
