Cask Handpump at the Maltings, York 16/04/2011 Floral hop aroma. Golden coloured fruity hoppy and floral with a hint of dryness in a malt finish. A little thin on the palate.

DruncanVeasey (8012) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - APR 22, 2011
Cask handpull, The Maltings, York, 18/04/11. Pure gold with a lace ruff. Bright floral and grassy hop, lime and biscuit aroma. Good tangy floral hop, rich tea biscuit, nettles and tangerine, balance. Squeaky clean, perfumed and soapy with generous finishing bitterness. Good- if a bit wishy-washy after a sip of Aardvark.

[Pint, North Bar - Leeds, 31/12/09] Clean pale appearance. Aroma of subtle grass and fruit. Slightly fruity taste. A pleasant but unadventurous ale. Just too laid back on all fronts. Probably more suited to a hot summer’s day.

dmradus (227) - Ithaca, New York, USA - FEB 25, 2007
Cask at the Maltings, York under the name ’Silver Creek,’ although the abv and style are the same - I am tempted to place the rating here until further notice, considering there is no mention of ’Silver Creek’ on the Rooster’s website. Orange bordering on copper with a thin film of dense white foam. Aroma is slightly indistinct, with slight grass, caramel, and dusty hops. Taste is upfront orange and lemon, with a malt presence dominated by caramel and butterscotch. Moderate to high bitterness, with a slight sour acidity in the finish. More lively in the carbonation than some.

jehoey (765) - Shippensburg, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 23, 2006
cask at Maltings York: dissapointed in this one after having the tennesse stud as my last memory of outlaw brew. beer has a slightly astringent aroma with some berry fruitiness. The flavors were slightly asidic and became more developed as you drank. Quite a delicate bitterness and malt backround. good but not spectacular.

haddonsman (1234) - Derby, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - AUG 17, 2005
Handpulled at the Flowerpot, Derby. Still billed as an Outlaw brew. Well fruited and hoppish, slight astringent citrics, pale and tempting.

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - MAY 14, 2004
Cask Conditioned, at the Wenlock Arms, London.
Pale golden colour with a ring of white. Fruity with soft malts. Apparently experimental and definitely still sold under the Outlaw Co. brand on this occassion. Not bad, the beer is well proportioned, just moderate everything. I would have called it and English Pale Ale, as there is nothing wheat about it.

leaparsons (9949) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2003
Pale straw in colour. Flavours are light caramel with an IPA like chewiness. Traces of sulphur and salt. An addictive beer.

imdownthepub (13390) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 28, 2003
Cask Conditioned at The Dispensary, Liverpool. Pale Yellow beer with thin short head. A sharp tasting wheat beer with fragrant fruity notes. It has moved out of the Outlaw experimental stage. One of the tastier wheat beers and deserves to be a success.
