On cask at the Brewery shop in Berko, pours Hazy Amber color with a light tan head. The smell is rich toasted malt, citrus. The taste is a blend of toasted malt, mild caramel, a fruity middle with some earthiness. The body is light+ with fine carbonation. Pleasant brew.

Red brown colour. Sweet, syrupy red fruit aroma and taste. Very much like jam! Some hop comes through in the finish.

Cask, handpump at The Horse and Groom, Caulcott, nr Heyfords, Oxon, 02.05.11 Looks great, pours warm golden colour with a white head. There is Morris Dancing in the garden, nice pint of beer, and the sun is shining, England in the Spring is a great place to be. Back to the beer. Good malty sweet base which is always showing a good undertow of hoppiness, hops are also on nose, some honey also in the mouth, marvellous beer. A great English IPA and yet as only an English IPA could be this is also a little restrained and yet still quite lovely. A7 A5 T7 P4 Ov14 3.7

Cask conditioned gravity dispense Northants BF. A golden coloured beer with whitish bubbles for a head. Hoppy throughout with citrus notes and a hint of spice. Quite thick in the mouth for an English golden. Dry and good on the tongue. Tasty.

HogTownHarry (6374) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - MAY 22, 2009
Cask. At The Old Fountain. Clear gold with a solid creamy white head, sticky lacing. Dry, fairly strong grassy/floral/herbal hop bitterness in the aroma, somewhat sweet light grain malt backbone. the taste is very, very grassy - fresh, strong and dryly bitter, this has a terrifically long and pungent finish to it. Average body, somewhat astringent, decently carbonated (just enough), the light malt finishes quickly and you’re left with a long dry hoppy finish. Excellent effort, the hopping seems almost layered, I would recommend tucking into several pints of this if you come across it anywhere.
