Essex (51) - Cardiff, WALES - JAN 5, 2013
Poured on cask into an Otley pint glass in the Pen & Wig pub, near the student union in Cardiff. A good accompaniment to a very cheap and great quality burger with chips. Pours nicely with a good thick head and massive lacing. Not sure why the other reviewer rated it down on this to be honest. Smells nicely hoppy and herbal. Faintly alcoholic. Tastes very balanced and rather smooth. Fairly hoppy much like a pale ale which is what I would say the beer is more similar too. Overall a very nice quaffing ale.

JKaranka (47) - Cardiff, WALES - DEC 11, 2012
Have had this in cask multiple times. Pours a nice light orange (or so it feels). The aroma has fruit (tangerine and peach), some spices, very inviting. Usually lively and medium bodied in the mouth, with a nice clean, grassy hoppiness. Taste again is overwhelmingly of fruits, lightened by the hops and the spice. It feels a bit full to be seasonable, but in a summer day it does go down pretty well. In overall itís a nice drink, itís very easy to pour to ale and non-ale drinkers alike.

Bottle at home. Mandarin, pithy fresh tangerine, gentle carbonation, full of pith, corriander creeping in.

kiwianer (3390) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 6, 2012
The head is ok, the body golden-blond. It smells like a hop-garden, young hoppy intensive in a positive way. The taste is very interesting, different hoppy, a bit malty, a real hop garden! Good! 11/10/11/11/-/11

Bottled. Lightly hazy pale golden, coarse head. Herbal coriander aroma. Mid sweet with slick, well rounded mouthfeel. Doughy and freshening. Low bitterness.

Theydon_Bois (9960) - The íSham, Surrey, ENGLAND - AUG 13, 2012
Cask at the Cask, Pimlico - 11/08/12. Slightly hazy pale yellow with a thin white head. Citrus, grapes, figgy jam on the nose. Taste marries the nose allied to a hint of grass and peas with a sour background flavour. Medium bodied with a bitter dry finish. average.

JamesBirch (25) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 29, 2012
Gravity Cask - The Clarendon - (Newington Green) - so first to rate, surprised given that this beer won a 2010 cask festival in Wales. Strong citrus aroma of grapefruit and lemons, very little carbonation, bitter middle followed by long oaky finish. Golden yellow no head. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPad

Pours a hazy orange colour. Aroma is subtle spices, clove, aniseed, cinnamon. I really like the flavour even though itís almost overpowered by clove. Some orange and spice. I like it but donít want another.

Pale blonde and slightly cloudy. with hardly any head. Lemon, bananas and cloves on the nose. Similar flavours with a hint of citrus.

Bottle at home. Pale yellowy amber, thin white head fades to a film on the top. Nice citrus/yeast nose, slight funk, slightly acidic. Juicy citrus up front, with a subtle yeast character and a grassy hop finish. OK, but not doing it for me.
