Handpulled cask at JDW Harrow earlier this year. Pake brown with a white head. A vert well balanced bitter with complex citrus hop flavours. Very enjoyable.

EFC1878 (315) - Manchester, Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - NOV 20, 2008
Cask various locations. Dark golden colour with decent white head - resembles Sierra Nevada PA. Citrus hop aroma. Full bodied, malty with a good bitter finish. Phoenix can do much better, though.

downender (6523) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 30, 2008
Cask-conditioned at the Commercial Rooms (JDW), Bristol 30/3/08. Golden coloured with a decent white head. A drinkable enough session bitter with some sweet malt and citrus hops. Ok.

wyzzywyz22 (2036) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - MAR 24, 2008
Cask, Hoylake Lights. Golden with thin white head. Appropriately named as this is very workmanlike, and while solid enough is lacking in any real finesse. Next please, don’t let your work boots muddy the carpet on the way out.

berkshirejohn (4677) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 29, 2008
Cask at the Old Manor (JDW), Bracknell.Pale gold with a loose white head; citrus aroma; strong sharp grapefruit flavour; full and dry at first then becoming sweeter. A sharp bitter finish. Excellent.

cgarvieuk (15169) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 26, 2007
Cask Bow Bar Edinburgh ... Copper colour ... fruity hop nose .... juicy sweet malts with a solid hop base. nice enough but no real character.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 22, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 27, 2010 Cask at Wellington Arms, Bedford. Golden with a small white head. Sweet honey aroma is promising, but not a lot else is going on here except for a medium hoppy taste. No sign of the fruits for me. 27.10.10 Cask at ’Spoons Milton Keynes, during, though not officially a part of the ’Spoons Beer Festival ’10. Very similar sentiments this time: undemanding and dull is what I wrote. Rating: 6,3,5,3,10:2.7

MesandSim (7118) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 28, 2007
A Mes rate: Cask at Bar Fringe, Manchester. Amber blonde colour. Very faint aroma but pleasant enough. Mildly hoppy with some peach and grapefruit. Swift clean finish. Straight forward but enjoyable.

haddonsman (1234) - Derby, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2006
Cask (handpump) at the Devonshire Cat, Sheffield. Saved from mediocrity by a faint fruitiness before the sudden finish. Otherwise, a rather chewy little bitter.

Svesse (6296) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAR 5, 2006
(Cask at Oliver Twist, Stockholm) Amber/copper colour with thick white head. Nose is fruity with citrus and hops. Fruity taste with hints of citrus and apricots. Long, fairly dry, hoppy and bitter finish. Lots of taste for the rather low ABV.
