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.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Cask handpull at Borough Market. Dark copper colour with thin beige head. Cookie dough and hoppy aroma. Caramel and op in mouth. More hop on end but disappinting and a bit of muddle of flavours. Like so many beers at this pub, never sure that this is exactly how it should taste.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
(Cask, The Wharf, Aalborg) - Light orange colour. Dry minty, floral hop nose. Soft, dry grapefruit flavour, with a slight malty sweetness. My impression of this beer is that your palate rather quickly gets tired of it, and when you are half way down your pint, you are fed up with the stuff,- not impressed....

Orange, some head, slightly
hazy. Beautiful aroma of cascade. Taste completely dominated by Cascade hops. Slightly to sweet for a top mark.
