3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask-conditioned at the Commercial Rooms, Bristol (JDW) 19/04/09. Deep gold with a frothy white head. Decent hoppy, aroma with plenty of citrus and orange blossoms and a touch of caramel. Flavour started sweet, with some marmalade, more citrus hops and a very long, dry finish. Very enjoyable.

UPDATED: JUN 4, 2009 Gravity cask at the London Drinker Beer Festival. Gold with a lively white head. Great beer to start the festival off. Cascade hops in the aroma and taste. Orangy citrus notes and silky hop oils helped this slip down easily. I couldn’t resist a second!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cloudy light amber, lasting large-bubbled white head. Straight orangey aroma muddled in heavy yeastiness that procures lots of dusty breadiness. Not so easy to drink as its ABV might indicate. Medium-bodied or even thicker, rather powdery palate. Still a tasty ale, but not so hoppy really.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Amber with some suspended particles. Short but dense head, which goes quickly. Very perfumed and flowery in the nose. Bit thin, acidic with a very dry end. Decent bitter. Simply citrus in the mouth.

Cask (gravity) at the Derby CAMRA summer festival 2005. Beer of the festival for me. Chunky orange body, orange rind shines into the aroma, sharp hops and oranges again to the flavour.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask (gravity dispense) at GBBF, August 2005. Attractive rich amber colour, with a big head for a gravity dispensed beer. Definitely US styled. Lots of orange in the flavour and sharp citrus character on the palate, but not as hoppy as I’d expected. Nonetheless a very appealing, fresh and thirst quenching beer.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
[Cask at GBBF 2005] A hazy orange beer with a thin off-white head. The aroma is sweet hoppy with notes of caramel and fruit - especially oranges. The flavor is sweet with a light touch of diacethyl leading to well hopped dry flowery end. The mouthfeel is a bit sticky.
