COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular.
The wort is infused with coriander to give a wonderful, fruity tang to both taste and aroma. Excellent thirst quenching beer.

haddonsman (1234) - Derby, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2005
Cask at Babington Arms, Derby. Coriander, basically. It’s to the fore but not IMO overwhelming, lovely medium gold body, light and crisp, would make a knockout sumer session beer but it’s alomost ready to snow here at the moment, even better than the Umbel Magna.

UPDATED: MAY 19, 2008 Cask (Live and Let Live, Cambridge) Orange, no head. Lightly hoppy aroma. Zingy fresh hoppy taste - clear corriander seeds. Sweet maltiness - caramel and more corriander.

Beersiveknown (2473) - NORTHERN IRELAND - NOV 29, 2011
cask@belfast beer festival 2011. Pale brown with herbal aroma. Corriander leaf rather than seed, so herbal taste noticable. subtle malt flavours but prefer the umbel magna. Paired with a burrito nicely.

leaparsons (7805) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 24, 2002
Smells strongly of fresh flowers and coriander. As clean as cut grass with floral notes in the taste, too. A very good low alcohol glugger!

Fin (7040) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 31, 2006
Cask at Merton Beer Festival, Oxon, July 2005. Wrm golden colour, could just about detect the coriander but also florally, beer a touch on the thin side but good level of bitterness and a thouroughly decent pint.

TheGrandMaster (2334) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 19, 2007
Half pint gravity fed from the cask at the Ealing Beer Festival, dark black with a filmy tan head. An light toasted aroma, with ’old school’ licorice and a touch of spice. A tart aniseed flavour, bitter and dry (maybe too dry). Quite enjoyable.

fiulijn (13532) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 20, 2007
Cask at Bishop’s Arms, Malmö
Golden color, generous head. Impressive aroma of citrusy hops, then showing green hops and earthy hops too. Medium-light body, quite dry mouthfeel, some malt flavor with a crispy touch, it gets a bit metallic too. The final is full of herbal hops and it has a quite harsh bitterness. Clever usage of the hops.

jmgreenuk (3591) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - NOV 5, 2012
Cask at the Elm Tree, Cambridge. Fairly weak aroma, but who cares about that! The flavour is amazingly floral with a huge hoppy bitterness and some spice from the coriander. A really excellent brew and quite different to anything most people will have tasted before.
