UPDATED: DEC 1, 2013 Cask conditioned - Gravity Dispense - Bedford Beer Festival. Bit of malt and sticky hops in the aroma of this golden coloured beer. The taste is thick, malty and bready. Didn’t get so much hop as in the aroma. Doesn’t taste 8%. Score 3.3
Subsequent rating scored 3.4 Score unaltered

Cask Conditioned at the Bedford Beer Festival 2004 (Wednesday Session). Wow this was great. Somewhere of a cross between an English Strong, a Belgian Strong, and an IIPA. Very Pale Gold, Sweety/syrupy. American hops. Great.

UPDATED: FEB 8, 2009 Feb 2004 White Cliffs Winter Ales Fest. Gravity. A huge and very pleasant barley wine - a big rush of pale malt, splendidly and gently sweet, perfectly balanced with a delicate and floral hop envelope. Nice indeed. [3.2]
Feb 2004 White Cliffs Winter Ales Fest. Gravity. Pale colour. White Lily beer. Pleasant. [3.6]

Light gold in colour, this doesn't look dangerous. Aromas are sweet grain and alcohol vapours. Flavours are JHB on steroids. Grapefruit and grain. Grrrr.
