evergreen0199 (2908) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 13, 2011
Cask at Victoria station, Wetherspoons, London before Christmas. An amber coloured pour with a medium off white head. Maltty aroma. Tastes malty, fruity, caramel, coriander. Quite unusual but fairly drinkable too.

Rune (10928) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 13, 2010
Half pint, hand pump cask ale at Standing Order (JDW). Hazy, orange coloured body. Spotty, head-lacing. Aroma of wheaty fruits. Unmistakable wheat beer flavour due to coriander part. Bready malts beneath and hints of sour wheat. Unvaried and far from great (Edinburgh, 29.11.2010).

sm89walt (1934) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - NOV 25, 2010
Cask - The Bell Hotel (JDW), Norwich. A fairly standard amber body with a lasting, creamy beige head leaving some lacework. Quite straightforward malt profile on the aroma particularly: caramel, bread with just a touch of the coriander at the back. The coriander is more prominent on the tongue but remains quite restrained, backed by some indistinct sweetness and an earth tone. Good length herbal bitterness, mostly soft palate and a light to medium body.

Cask conditioned handpump Red Well Wellingborough. An amber coloured beer with a bright white head. A spicy bready aroma leading to wareming corainder flavours with fruit and bread again. A good body. Really tasty with the coriander working well with the robust flavours and earthy hops. Good.

imdownthepub (12928) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 18, 2010
Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Amber with slight head, freezing. Thin, slightly fruity and sweet, kept in antarctic conditions there is very little way the beer can develop. On warming there develops a slight pungency.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 15, 2010
Cask at Bankers Draft (JDW), Bedford, after the end of ’Spoons, Beer Festival ’10. Amber with a white head. Curious aroma of slightly stale orange peel. Taste has an oily feel, sweet and milky, with suggestions of grass cuttings. Slight bitterness. Odd stuff, but I enjoyed it.

Spoons Fest! Clear dark brown beer, ghostly head. Light and semi dry palate. A little malt intro reveals a lovely orange, lemon and lime fruit punch and then delivers some trace notes of raspberry and strawberry. Finishes spritzy and light. Beautifully flavoured beer - could drink this all night. Clear Fest winner for me.
