Cask conditioned at The Turf Tavern, Oxford. Burnished gold with slight head. Heady, flowery beer, quite intense really, resinous hops, but a bitter nutty malt makes it a little unbalanced. Not really to my taste.

Bottle, had this back in November 2006 picked up from picked up at Darts Farm, Topsham, Nr Exeter, Devon 12-11-06. This poured a hazy amber colour with hops on the nose. Taste came across as being a bit homebrewy which is fine it was also quite fruity, some sourness and hops again. Ok

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Arden Wines. Tight uneven white head over misty orange. Almost witbier looks with plenty of haze and bags of lace. Lovely agricultural gooseberry and dried apricot fruit aroma with coniferous and jammy citrus hints, maybe mango. Flavour picks up where the aroma ends, bringing plenty of tangy dried apricot yeast, hops and a sprinkle of pineneedles to the mix. Saaz and Goldings? Full in the mouth and clinging with lace. Impressive.
