Orange clear pour with decent head and lacing. Some malt., not much hops here. A meaty cask consistency. Finishes malty with a touch of salt. Cask at Churchkey.

50 cl bottle @ home. Rated on 14.02.2009
Aroma is somewhat hoppy with floral notes, some fruits and forree. Flavour is slightly sweet with toffee, hops, some fruits, floral notes, nuts and biscuits. Refreshing, but be sure to get a fresh bottle – this one turns flat rather quickly.

maxwelldeux (3070) - Everett, Washington, USA - JAN 1, 2013
Bottle. Overflowed when I opened it. Pours a very hazy copper color when a very thick white head. Nose is a little hoppy and bitter, but without the freshness of a pale ale. Taste is much the same, being a tad dull. Meh.

johninmelb (1117) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 30, 2012
Nose has hints of orange and lime with some underpinning sweet malt. Pours a hazy gold. Flavour is spiced and redolent of a European wheat. More of the orange, some fresh spice, a long and thirst-quenching finish. Not bad.
