(cask @ The Old Toad - Rochester, NY) Light and clear yellow color with some foam. Aroma is very hoppy and citrusy with some floral hints. The taste is very dry and and hoppy at the beginning with a smooth and malty middle and a very bitter and hoppy finished. The bitterness at the end really surprised me.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: AUG 13, 2007 Cask at Oakham Brewery Tap, Peterborough. One of my favourite all time beers. It is like the JHB with all of the citric hoppiness and tangerine/grapefruit, but there is more body and structure to this beer that makes this stunning. A really good beer

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAY 22, 2007 Cask conditioned at NERAX 4/27/2005 and again on 4/29/2005.
Light yellow, some light gold tints, no head. Aroma of light herbs and citrus, a touch of hay and fruit. Flavor is full of lemons, soft and lightly tingly, little to no carbonation. Dries out somewhat with notes of light woodiness and dry nectarines on the finish. Medium body, tons of flavor. Really enjoyed this one.
Cask at NERAX on 5/4/07
Always the perennial powerhouse, this stuff seems immune from flaws/poor conditioning. Fruity, light, drinkable and very flavorful, it’s got such a lovely malt character and vintage yeast character (hard to define, but I mean it has a noticeable character that is not a flaw, yet not just your average ester. Musty isnt the right word, nor is doughy/bready/dusty). Great, great stuff.
