Bottle at home split with Sarah pciked up at the Brewery shop in Chesham. Clear deep orange coloured pour with a big off white head. Aroma is some smoke phenol, piney hops, light cirtus and some tobacco. Flavour is sweetish biscuity malts, decent wet grassy, piney hops. Firm smooth grassy bitterness. Palate is highish carbonation medium sweet. Again that hint of smokey phenol lingers in the back end. Decent English IPA.

Had this in bottle at Bracelands Campsite, nr Coleford, Forest of Dean, Glos, Saturday 6th September 2014 purchased from Jacks, Goring. Pours orangey gold with off white large fluffy head. The hoppiness has waned a little, but it is still there a touch furry and with a little grapefruit. Some toffee and maltiness, pretty good. A6 A4 T7 P3 Ov13 3.3

Cask. Malty. Bit of citrus, real ale yeastiness, slightly nutty. Alright. First sip was interesting but then it hurt my teeth. No idea why.

SaintMatty (5487) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - MAR 15, 2014
Cask (Isis, Sunderland) - Amer in colour. Marmalade, pine and peach in the aroma. Grapefruit, apricot and sultanas in the taste. Nice, but not as hoppy as I was expecting (not necessarily) it would be.

Cask at The Bell in Waltham st Lawrence. Amber beer. A lot of treble in this beer. Not enough bass. A bit sweet for the abv. Lemony marmalade hop.

Aroma: malt, light hops. Appearance: dark brown, no head. Taste: medium to heavy sweet. Palate: very light bitterness coming up, smokey. Overall: OK APA, nothing special though. Pint at The Harp, London.

EdKing (1967) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2013
Bottle from the Red Squirrel Brewery Shop and Tap Room. Clear light brown and orange with a medium off white head. Nose is citrousy hop, light pine, nutty malt, light caramel. Taste is tangy pine and green hop bitter, with some light caramel and light nuttiness. Lacks a bit of malt backbone to carry the hop for me, but decent.

fairwater (135) - Reading, Berkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 15, 2013
Cask @ Alehouse. Slightly hazy deep orange, tight head. Aroma is sweets from my childhood, strawberry maybe. Immediate bitterness, recedes to a sweetness that becomes toffee bananas. Lingering bitterness. I like this one!

Niall73 (1861) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 19, 2013
Cask @ Harp. Amber clear with small white bubbly head which didn't stick around for long. No carbonation. Not much aroma, some malty sweetness maybe a little hops, nothing much. Sweet malty flavour giving way to bitterness. Ok but I'd expected more. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jackl (4797) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - AUG 6, 2012
Cask @ some random pub in Stockwell. Deep red with a small white head. The nose is floral hops, strong herbs and citrus fruits. The taste is big chewy cherry malted body supporting a strong dash of floral hops. Quite herbal. The body’s medium. This beer feels a bit disjointed and strange, missing a harmony of flavor that elevates the best beer. Still, pretty flavorful...
