Cask@The Rake, London. probably the best beer Iíve had in a while, it was in great condition first of all, and was bursting with hoppy flavours, yet it was so light/refreshing. Only 3% too, which means you can bury loads as well, which is great because it tastes really good. Classy. Also, i wouldnít call this a mild! This tastes along the lines of Dark Star Hophead, JHB etc.... Not a mild!

Cask at the Southampton Arms on 4th April 2011. Clear gold with off white film head and foam ring leaving fine lacing. Exquisite hoppy flavours. Fine grapefruit citrus and srong uppermouth bitterness. Lingering dry, hoppy aftertaste. Very agreeable mouthfeel. Excellent for its strength.

Cask gravity at Reading BF 2011. Clear gold with lasting white head. Looks in great nick and just lovely citrus hops on the aroma. Wow that is delicious. Shows what you can do with a beer at this abv. Hops are wonderful and last and last. Touch of butter maybe. But stunningly lovely

UPDATED: MAY 31, 2012 Cask at Craft Beer. This was really good - light coloured ale with hint of citrusy hops in aroma. Taste nice mix of malt giving way to exceptional long bitter hoppy finish. And all at 3%, quite an achievement

Cask conditioned at Wantage Beer Fest í11. Gold with white head. Wow, I didnít expect this with the a 3% abv beer, zesty, lemony and packed full of hop flavour. Grapefruit and really easily drinkable, it must be the best low abv beer I have tried, really enjoyable.

Gravity, Northamptonshire BF 2011, Delapre Abbey, 27/05/11. Murky gold, strong big bubbled head. Huge tropical aroma swaying with grapefruit, melon, mango, background chaff. Deep husky malt, peanut suggestions supporting a canopy of rose infused chalk, mango. Resinous green and fleshy tropical burps. Chew of HB. Began and finished the festival on this- unprecedented. A thing of hop-humming beauty.

Hand pulled at the Rake, London. Very tasty, very hoppy session ale. Deliciously light, very nice fragrant hops. Little drop off on the finish, but goodness me, at 3.0% forget about it!! This is a massive winner.

Cask at the London Drinker BF. Clear yellow pour with a light film. Grassy, floral hops on the nose. Light straw flavor, some citra, very grassy. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Sticky hop finish, mildly sweet, with lingering earth and hay bitterness. Excellent stuff.

A Mes rate. Bottle thanks muchly to Andy.
A mild? Really? Seriously who gives a funk? My first glass lasted two sips. The first brought on a wash of oh my god thatís pretty tasty. The second didnít stop until Iíd finished the glass. Itís one of those. Refill in hand. Ok, this is bloody good. Not sure who listed this as a mild but itís not. Itís a bloody amazing bright as you like, drinkable as fuck hop assault. Glorious fresh hoppage, incredible flavour and length, really tasty citric bite and . THREE PERCENT??? One of the best low abv beers Iíve had without a doubt. And Iíve had some good ones. Summers days outdoors can be enhanced massively with this. Three percent and just brilliant.

UPDATED: OCT 21, 2012 Cask conditioned gravity dispense Northants Beer Festival 2011. A bright gold coloured beer with whitish bubbles. A lovely hoppy nose with big grapefruit notes. An unctuous very tasty beer with big spicy and citric hopping. Certainly doesnít long for more alcohol; instead being scrummy and very moreish. My beer of the festival out of the 41 I drank and the one I recommended to all who needed my advice. Score 4.1
Subsequent rating scored 3.8. Average becomes 4.0
