Handpulled cask at JDW Harrow. Pale gold colour. Fresh as a daisy and just as floral. Brash, spicy hops. Intensely aromatic. Lychees and grapefruit in the flavour. Lots of bite on the finish. Just superb!.

Cask@GBBF2007. Golden colour, big white head. Aroma is hoppy and slightly yeasty. Also has some slight spicy hints. Flavour is spiced, wooden and quite grassy and dry hoppy. Good balance, refreshing, but then again quite empty.

Cask gravity at White Cliffs BF 2007. Gold colour with thin white head. Fragrant, flowery hop aroma. Bit of yeast on the aroma. Does lack a bit of body. I quite like the citrus drying hop finish. Some tangerine and I like the finish, just lacks a bit of malt structure in the mouth.

Sweet aroma but very bitter. Citric and floral notes as usual. Swings and roundabouts really.
