downender (6245) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - APR 19, 2009
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.

bobinlondon (1256) - Harrow, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 4, 2009
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!

fonefan (34777) - VestJylland, DENMARK - OCT 1, 2008
Cask (handpump) @ The Fringe, Manchester, England M4.
Clear light to medium amber orange color with a average, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, caramel, moderate hoppy, flowers, citrus, grapefruit, toffee. Flavor is moderate to light heavy sweet and bitter with a long to average duration. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is flat. (290708)

Rastacouere (6126) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 21, 2007
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.

dnas2 (705) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JUL 17, 2007
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 at the Wellington Arms, Bedford. Golden with a small white head. Sweet floral aroma with malt and honey. Sharp grapefruit and orange taste with a medium bitter finish. Very enjoyable.

haddonsman (1234) - Derby, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - JAN 25, 2006
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.

chriso (7347) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 4, 2006
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.

Ungstrup (29224) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 11, 2005
[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.
