Cask at the Smithfield, Derby. Straw with a dense white head; fresh floral aroma; taste has herbal hops and powdered ginger, giving a long, warming, ginger finish. Very pleasant.

Half pint at the brewpub: Poured a clear yellow with a fizzy white head. Mild pine aroma. The flavor is similar to all the other beers I had here with mild pine and citrus notes. One doesnít distinguish itself from the others. Watery finish. Nothing special.

Gravicask at the Lower Red Lion beer fest, St. Albans. Handpulled cask at JDW Watford and JDW Hatch End Harrow. I just canít get enough of this beer! Pale yellow with a lasting white head. Fantastic hop aroma and flavour. Luscious citrussy bitterness. I canít believe a beer brewed with only english hops can taste like this! Superb!

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at The Market Porter, London. Fruity, perhaps grapefruity, aroma. Gold color with a white head. Sharp fruit, even grapefruit, flavor with very light malt. Finishes rather bitter. Rather dry. Very good. A bit unusual.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hoppy, light citrus and field grass, and sweet. Light malt, a bit bready. Pretty good, but strong... more hop than I would be accustomed to.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: MAY 14, 2008 Cask, Charters, Peterborough. Dark gold latticed with white. Canít quite match the Inferno for silky hop loveliness. Mandarin/grapefruit zest and flat lemonade tang. Hop spikiness mellowed with bready pale malt. One to revisit sober..(Re-rate, sober, Beduff íSpoons, of all places)...Grapefruit and vanilla milkshake palate. Sweetish mandarin citrus, earthy fibrous N.American hints, trace of peanut. Dangerous, juicy, humming with hops and pretty near perfect.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cask at the King Billy, Sneinton, Nottingham. A lovely golden beer with aromas of hops, citrus and grass. The flavour is mostly citrus and bitterness with a touch of spice. Iíve had this beer many times and I really enjoy it. Most people prefer JHB to this one but I like the heftier flavours. If only the ABV were lower it would be good contender for a session beer.
