maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - OCT 23, 2009
Cask conditioned handpump Turf Tavern Oxford. Unfortunately the yeast was totally sludged into the glass making this a complete orange mud soup. What it did mean though was I could drink sufficiently enough and return it for a replacement. And it did actually taste pretty good . It was nice and hoppy with citrus notes throughout. A little sweetness too. One to drink with the eyes closed.

imdownthepub (13233) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 17, 2009
Cask conditioned at The Turf Tavern, Oxford. Amber with slight white head. Quite thinnish for the abv, there are initial sweetish, perfumed notes which then develops into a dry bitterness, with a light acidity. Light finish, reasonable.

From cask at Three Judges. Pours clear and golden orange with small white head. Aroma is fruity an gives the impression of a sweet brew. Flavour is fruity, overripe. Sweet caramel. Fruity and mild acidic touch into the finish.

(Cask at Oliver Twist, Stockholm, 9 Nov 2008) Amber colour with frothy, off-white head. Fruity nose with notes of orange peel, apricots and earthy hops. Fruity taste with caramel, orange, apricots, hints of malt sweetness and generous doses of earthy hops in the finish. Medium body, balanced sweetness. Nice and refreshing. In short: bitter and earthy orange.

FatPhil (13867) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 27, 2008
Cask (Pullman, Helsinki)
Teabag and musty wet paper aroma. Sweet starchy body, some popcorn (not sweet or salty, just the kernels). Some retronasal glue on swirling it around the tongue. Stealth hops - bitter and build up slowly. Leaves a pleasant sweet malt and bitter finish. Well balanced, but simple.

omhper (23432) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - DEC 2, 2004
Cask at Akkurat, Stockholm. Dark amber. Some grass and raisin. Bold mouthfeel. There’s some berries before a harsh, bitter finish takes over. Never been the greatest fan of RCH, and I found this beer to be about as balanced as a hippo in a glassware store.
