Martin243 (767) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - OCT 12, 2013
Pint at the Schooner Gateshead. Hazy yellow with a thin white skim. Citrus aroma, lemony hoppy flavour, hint of ... peanuts? Thin body, gentle carbonation, bitter finish. Not bad, would have preferred a bit more alcohol and body though.

larsga (6206) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 25, 2013
Medium beige creamy head. Clear coppery body. Light floral caramelly aroma with fruity notes. Dry-sweet resiny dusty strawy taste with caramelly notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft, flat mouthfeel. Dry resiny caramelly aftertaste is slightly watery. It’s good, but not their best. (0.284l cask at The Little Angel, Whitby.)

stravale (2099) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - JUL 17, 2013
Cask @ The Golden Rule, Edinburgh [140713]
Golden clear, white head, good lacing
Aroma - soft grassy hops, soft cereal pale malts, slight gooseberry
Taste of soft grassy hops, touch of peanut shell which i’m not keen on, touch of citrus zest, light sweet pale malts
Palate - Light body, bit oily. Finish has that grassy hops and grassy peanut pod flavour, clean finish, not too bitter, slightly dry
Overall - OK- it’s well made but the flavour profile just wasn’t my cup of tea
