Cask conditioned handpump Royal Blenheim Oxford 19/10/13. A golden coloured beer with a white head. A nice citrussy beer. Good lime notes. A decent body. Nicely balanced although the hop does dominate in a good way. A tasty beer.

RichardW (1461) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - OCT 18, 2009
Cask, Hugo’s, Tynemouth. My favourite from the Mordue stable. Great session bitter. Caramel undertone matched by a great hoppy flavour that hits the tongue and gives good bitterness and a fine lingering finish. Fruity and refreshing.

BeerViking (2313) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 26, 2009
Served with a tight sparkler in the Sir Michael Balcon (JDW) in Ealing, the barman knew his stuff though and pulled it through without knocking all the condition out. Dark gold verging on amber with a big fine head that soon settled down and went lacy. Aromas of freshly squeezed orange juice, plus sweet malt and a hint of pinewood, then the body is surprisingly full for a 3.8%, with more fruit - dried apricot and perhaps a touch of pineapple - and a pronounced and lingering bitterness. A well-balanced session beer, though the orange juice thing was a bit startling at first!
