COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask: Regular.
A characteristically light hoppy beer using mainly optic pale malt with a mixture of Goldings and Styrian Goldings hops, which gives a distinct light bitter taste with a pleasing aroma.

DruncanVeasey (7160) - NUNEATON, Top 18, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - SEP 30, 2013
Gravity, Hinckley BF, 13/09/13. Coppery orange with a slim collar subsiding to nothing. Nice sweet orange Smartie, thistle and grass nose. Mellow and rounded with good, faintly earthy orange rind qualities; dunked biscuit, soap and old vase of flowers notes. Discreet chocolate maltiness. Nice.

leaparsons (8036) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 9, 2011
Cask, Criterion, Leicester. Dull amber with a thin foam. Aromas are light biscuit and toffee malts with dusty yeast and funky aspects. Autumn fruit with lime coming through. Flavours are, I suspect, tainted lime tartness with grapefruit and hints of slick butter. Woody with hints of berry. Dry and acidic on the finish. Not in the best nick.

Oakes (12446) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 27, 2011
Slightly hazy amber. Smells a bit funk - Sun says rambutan and I think that’s reasonable. Fruity-hoppy character, perhaps a bit overripe. Melony finish. Not to my taste, if nothing else.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - MAR 9, 2011
Cask @ "The Diamond" Weatherspoons pub in Derry. Dark gold with glassy stable head. Aroma is sweet, fruity, with rambutan. Very soft. The flavors are nicer, rounding out with bright herbal hops. Overall nice.

DanielBrown (3790) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 10, 2011
Hand pulled at the Wetherspoons under the Central Library, Birmingham. Dark yellow colour I suppose. Flavour is a bit mushy and unspecified. Some hop juice which flies in and out without providing a great deal of relief from the burnt, sugared malt. This is occasionally OK, but often verges on dullness, or perhaps winceability.

downender (6247) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 16, 2011
Cask-conditioned at the Cask & Kitchen, London 11/1/11. Amber coloured with a decent, off-white head. Malty bitter, with some cereal notes, a touch of fruit and decent bitter finish. Ok.

BeerViking (2447) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 7, 2011
Poured through a sparkler, so amber with a fine white head. Aroma of sweet juicy malt with hints of pomegranate and maybe peach blossom, chewy body with lots of fruity malt balanced with an astringent bitterness and a biscuity bitter aftertaste. An excellent light bitter.
