Beese (2570) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 14, 2013
Cask at the St. Albans Beer Festival 2013. Poured a clear amber colour with a thick, rocky head. Aroma of sweet malts, pineapple and light spruce. Initial flavours are also very sweet with golden syrup, dates and sweetened grapefruit. Palate is a little more of what you’d expect; grassy hop resins and dry grain. I haven’t had this in a few years, but I recall that it was far more hoppy in the past. Possibly my preference for hops has increased a lot since then, or this barrel was not at its best.

Cask at the Old Cross Tavern, Hertford on 3 Sept 2010. Amber with a bubbly quick-collapse grey head and a small amount of lacing. Very fruity aroma of berries and grapefruit. Grass, grapefruit and subtle honey in-mouth, and a strong but rounded grapefruit finish. Zingy mouthfeel. Superb!

Cask (GBBF 2010) - Gold/amber in colour. Grapefruit, pineapple and peach in the aroma. Bitter and hoppy taste with tangy grapefruit, pineapple and passion fruit detected. Tasty and enjoyable, even though it could do with a bit more balance.

Cask at GBBF 2010. Pours a good orangey colour with a thin white head. Plenty of citrus and hops in the aroma. The taste is all grapefruit and hops and leads to a bitter dry finish.

madmitch76 (22309) - , Essex, ENGLAND - AUG 15, 2010
15th July 2010. Chelmsford Beer Festival. Slightly hazy gold beer. Residual suddy head. Semi dry and semi criso palate. Crisp orangey hops with a little marmalade and a little spice. A whisper of sulphur doesn’t detract too much. Good effort!
