MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 16, 2009
A Mes rate. Cask at The Rake.
Cleanish gold with a thin white head. Reasonably hoppy with a good biscuit malt base and some nice citric fruit to finish. Straight forward but tasty.

Cask in the Rake. Alround rating: Pale sweet yet biscuity malt, lemon and other citrusy flavours kicking about, balanced. Good show.

johndoughty (4458) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 7, 2009
Bottle. Flat and pleasantly hoppy with a nice bitter aftertaste. Left some sediment and lacing. Well bottled and well balanced as a BCA should be.

Alphadelic (1936) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 5, 2009
Cask @ London Drinker 25: What a shocker. I stank like a guy I had to sit behind on a bus the day before (like rancid, rancid faeces.) But it had a tiny dusty straw edge slipped in. The cereals in the mouth were overwhelming and then just disappeared leaving me absolutely nothing to mull over. Watery, slick and soapy like drinking heavily softened water. This is an uninteresting and vaguely unpleasant beer..

asheft (2740) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 12, 2008
[on cask at EBF 2008] Almost mimosa orange juice aroma that is sour and with some coriander. Dark yellow with no top. Fruity flavour with ginger, lotus root, and a little toffee. Low carbonation, light body, fruity bitter finish.

turbothy (1141) - Bonn, GERMANY - OCT 7, 2008
Sampled @ European Beer Festival, Valby. Pours straw yellow. Unlike the OG, which I had sampled first, this is a very good beer.

Maria (10191) - Thisted, DENMARK - OCT 7, 2008
EBF2008. It’s slightly hazy and golden and the head is creamy. The aroma is refreshing and crisp with notes of citrus and fruit. The flavour is refreshing and pleasant with notes of fruit, citrus, malt, caramel and the finish is dry and slightly bitter. Very pleasant indeed.
