wimpyjoe (4155) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 27, 2014
Very much alive in cask form @ Old Gate, Hebden Bridge. Blonde in colour with a small creamy head. Has a dryish hop character that includes a fruitiness but more of a bitterness.

CanCrusher (651) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - OCT 22, 2012
Bottle. Very pale golden colour with small, weak white head. Mild fruity aroma, mostly of grapefruit and also some flowers. Very drinkable and refreshing ale with heavy bitternes and finish lemon feeling.

Martin243 (785) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JUL 1, 2012
Retired? Well thereís a load of bottles in B&M bargains BBE 18/04/13 at present, so, 500 ml bottle from the fridge served in a shaker. Clear golden yellow with a dense white head.Aroma of clover honey which is there in the flavour too, along with sharp citrus, and an underlying hint of something fungal that I canít quite put my finger on. Lively carbonation, and a bitter, bitter finish. A bit more tangy than many a blond ale, I could imagine enjoying an afternoon session in a sunny pub garden with this one. Reeeeefreshing!

HarryFlashman (469) - Chatham, Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 18, 2007
Sampled at the Medway Beer Festival 2007 - Another hoppy, citrusy and bitter pale ale sort of brew. Very drinkable and very tasty. A good session beer.

Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - OCT 14, 2007
Gravity, Oxford CAMRA beer festival. Straw gold, nice soapy white head. A rather aggresive dose of sulfur to begin with, though it fades with a little breathing. Cinnamon and orange peel show up under the sulfur. Lovely fine textured dry citrus bitterness, refreshing and bright. Just a hint of toast in the finish. A little cleaner nose and this would be brilliantly good beer.

Fin (7538) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 12, 2007
Cask at Oxford Beer Festival 11-10-07 Poured a real pale golden colour, in fact a very light colour. Aroma was surprisingly sulphurous in fact really quite eggy indeed. There was a real flurry of hops initially the bitterness didnít show immediately, rather like the dog lying in wait for the postman it bit when you thought you were home and dry and had got to the gate, the resulting bitter bite then hung around for a while. This was a very good beer but not quite what I expected.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 15, 2007
Cask at Wellington Arms, Bedford. Pale gold with a small white head. Citric aroma with a hint of wheat. Taste is citric with a distinct spicy, gingery flavour. Bitter finish. Different and rather good.

DruncanVeasey (7249) - NUNEATON, Top 22, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAY 8, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 30, 2007 Bottled. Pours very pale gold with a heaped white head thatís going nowhere. Light carbonation. Unashamedly citrussy snout packed with mandarin and grapefruit hoppiness. Clean, crisp and refreshing. Flavour doesnít follow through with the robust hoppiness suggested by the nose, but still aromatic and fruity. Faintly biscuity afters. A lick of lemon soapiness. Unquestionably a decent effort but probably much more charismatic in cask form. (re-rate) Cask, The Crown, Nuneaton. Imperial Leather and flat lemonade. Insipid and unhoppy. On this showing, the most overrated beer in England.
