On draught at The Coronet, Holloway Rd. Clear golden colour, frothy head. Fruity hop aroma. Flavours are a good blend of fruity hops and toffee malts. Raisins and apples are there, too. Nice

Cask real ale tasted at Gallows Bird RAF 2010. Mild nose. Slightly hazy pale golden colour. No head. Thin taste with some fusel. Mild hoppiness. At the end hoppy bitterness. Some sour fruits in the taste. Warming alcohol.

Cask at Our Mutual Friend, Stevenage. Straw with a thin cream head; sweet and grainy aroma; smooth oily texture, swet and grainy flavour with a hint of tropical fruit; the finish is dry with some quinine bitterness and warming, spicy, alcohol. More of a Barley Wine in my opinion.

tiong (4019) - Espoo, FINLAND - OCT 19, 2013
Cask @ OlutExpo 2013

Pours yellow with a small head. Aroma of citrusy fruity notes, malts and spices. Taste is smooth, malty and fruity with notes of spices and citrus. Finish is smooth and sticky with some spices. A bit unbalanced.

MrRomero (1976) - Nolanville, USA - JUN 12, 2008
Half pint from the brewpub: poured orange yellow with a fizzy white head. Earthy hop aroma with light candyish notes. Mild earthiness in the flavor with some citrus and a bit of sourness. Doesn’t taste like 7.2%. Smooth bitter finish. Okay.

GBBF. Cask. Clear gold beer. Softish palate, slightly dry and a little silky. Light hop but full on flavour. Mild grassy grapefruit. Some mandarin orange and a little pineapple. Mild minerals. Not much malt character. Quite a warming finish.

Pours hazy golden color with a small head. Aroma of hay, lemony fruits, some apricot and wood. Flavour of fruits, some caramel and hay. Mellow fruity palate. Boring.

laiti (5980) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 19, 2013
Cask @ Olutexpo 2013<bt /> Aroma has caramel, sweet fruity notes and hints of biscuits. Flavour is harsh in a bitter way. It has some fruit candy, gooseberry bush notes, bitter herbs and hints of caramel. Odd.

prawlie (1186) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 26, 2014
On tap at the Nags Head in Reading. Lightly hazy yellow-orange with a fair head. Very dry flavour with an element I hestitate to say of special brew, but also with a lime hop note to it. A touch medicinal! Tastes reasonable all told. Solid rather than must have.
