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

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.

(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.

Nekronos (4039) - Xalapa, MEXICO - FEB 22, 2006
Really hard to explain, very bitter but a little like dry, not really good, but not bad at all. I like the aroma, the foam too.
