Cask. Hazy amber colour with mediumsized white head. Aroma is nutty and flowery along with some nectary and wooden hints. Flavour is a pleasant mix of fruity and flowery hops, quite much grass and caramel malts balancing it up. Some notes of cookies also.

Cask at The Bridge. Clear deep golden color, thick cream colored head with good retention. Aroma of light black pepper, but the young lady sitting next to me was wearing a lot of perfume, so who knows? Taste is light straw and white pepper. Watery body.

harrisoni (15809) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 27, 2006
Cask handpull at Fly in the Loaf, Liverpool. Copper colour with creamy head. Seem to use a tight sprinkler. Yeasty session bitter with goodish hop finish. Bit metallic. Even still tasty session beer. Bit thin around the edges but core yeast/caramel/hop falvours hold together well. A bitter that is bitter

UPDATED: DEC 27, 2004 Cask @ Shore Hotel, Laxey

Amber - not in the beer sense but literally like a piece of amber; kind of watery, caramel, touch of copper, wood, finishes slightly sweet.
