bhensonb (11533) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 25, 2008
Cask at the Doric Arch. Light aroma of peach seconded by a hint of citrus. Brassy gold color with an euphemeral white head. Less than medium bodied with mild carbonation. Starts a mouthful of light, fresh fruit, perhaps a touch of citrus, then malt, and finally bitter. Drinks like water, but tastes very much better. Excellent.

FatPhil (9643) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 25, 2007
Cask (Doric Arch, London) Very pleasant lightly malty beer. Good as a summer drink, but no real guts or interesting details.

RoyceH (1196) - Hesperange, LUXEMBOURG - AUG 14, 2007
Cask, Doric Arch. Clear straw, thin white head. Hoppy grassy with slight hint of sweetness. Mouth is much the same, over-hopped with a slight sweet linger. OK

Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUL 26, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 11, 2008 Cask at The Doric Arch (the stupid name that Fullers gave the Head of Steam ;-) Pours a very yellow gold. The taste is very dry with a lipsmacking finish (as expected from the name) and overall this is ok. Re-rated as I tried it again and it was a lot better than the previous time. (original rate was a 2.1)

MesandSim (7118) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 28, 2006
A Mes rate: Cask at whatever stupid name Fullers have given to The Head of Steam. So-so beer. Very straight forward but a lovely dollop of creamy hops all round. Not as dry as they make out. Nice vanilla lick for the finish.

GarethYoung (1109) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - OCT 10, 2006
[Cask at Troonfest] Aroma of caramel, peach syrup and some floral notes. medium bodied, dry finish.

DonMagi (5596) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 8, 2006
Aroma gives loads of hops, grassy floural and citruis all in the one go. Taste is pale malts from the sweetness, the citrus and grassy hops finish this off nicely.
