KyotoLefty (6695) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAR 20, 2010
Cask at the Bear and Billet, Chester. Very fruity and mellow. Seems like there is more than 50% barley malt in here, as there is a good barley taste. Great wheat flavor, though, too. Very strong hops. It is rich and fruity, with a fruit and hop finish. Very nice.

bobinlondon (1257) - Harrow, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 7, 2008
Handpulled cask at JDW Watford. A light golden slightly hazy beer with whispy head in good condition. A nice combination of citrusy flavours and acidity then a hint of sweetness. More interesting than great.

DruncanVeasey (7315) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - DEC 4, 2008
Hinckley, second sampling....still that buttery aroma, but with soft wine gummy hop tang leaking out. Clearly fresh cask. Nitro lacy, orange amber, fine milky condition. Very soft and low carb but it suits. Slippery and fine. Gentle lemon and lime gelatinous penny chew hop softness closing with creamy wheaty biscuit and vanilla afters. Sweet but good.

UPDATED: DEC 9, 2008 Cask-conditioned at the Commercial Rooms JDW, Bristol. Hazy gold in colour with a decent white head. Caramel, spice and yeast aroma. Flavour was sweet, with some graininess in the mouth, toffee and citrus hops, leading to a short, dry finish. Good.
