A light fruity beer with a fragrant nose. The taste is smooth despite a slightly bitter edge which continues into the finish.

Cask Conditioned at The White Lion, Banbury. Light copper with thin head. A bit of a mess though some fruity malt notes appear through the oversqueezed aerated body, not much hop though. There is a plastic note with a boiled sprout finish.

Hops aplenty in this ale, with a taste that lingers long after the last drop has been drunk.

Oakes (12234) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 21, 2002
Orange-tinged copper; rich aroma of earth, candied fruits, toffee. Odd flavour profile has the same elements of the aroma, which totally clash with one another, and then a huge wave of diacetyl crashes over your tongue like a runaway train...and you know what that makes it - a trainwreck.

eczematic (1319) - Adelaide, AUSTRALIA - JUL 25, 2002
My first pint since arriving in the scarily green land of my thieving ancestors. After the initial shock of getting warm beer subsided, i liked this one. Fruity, as with the varsity peaches, along with passionfruit and dried pears. good crystal malt body, with a fairly crisp bitter finish. nice copper colour - average it may be but i like it.

Nuffield (3666) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JUL 14, 2002
Suspicious aroma--vinegary--but at least it is better tasting, with fruity notes and a citric bite (at times perhaps slighty sour). Average color and appearance. (on tap at Isis Tavern, Iffley/Oxford)
