COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Occasional. Originally a monthly special in April 2011. Reappeared in October 2012.

A mischievous premium ale, that entertains with a pronounced hoppy profile and refreshes with a long escalating citrus finish.

Cask, The Pub, Leicester. Golden with a fluffy foam. Aromas are biscuit and toffee with peach and floral notes. Spiced oranges with bready yeast and soft spices. Lemon with some woodiness. Flavours are bittersweet lemon with base biscuit and caramel malts. Bready with toast and a grassy, peppery finish. A nice citrussy bitter.

chriso (7347) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 7, 2012
Cask (gravity dispense) at Reading Beer Festival on 28 April 2011. Dark gold. Excellent condition. Herbal, nettley aroma. Clean, if just a touch underpowered, on the palate. Salopian does hoppy beers quite well and, overall, this is another good one, if not quite as impressive as some others Ive tried.

Leighton (10894) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 8, 2011
Cask at The Crosse Keys, JDW, London. Pours rich gold with a filmy, whitish head. Enticing hop aroma, with a bit of pine, tangerine and dank earth. Has a lightly sweet flavor, some honey and caramel, then plenty of bitterness of citrus, grass, some bubblegum and floral hops. Light to medium in body with fine carbonation. Fairly dry, sticky finish, more honey, grass and citrus rind. Solid beer.

Cask conditioned gravity dispense Banbury BF 2011. A golden beer with an off-white head. Super orangey citrus hops in the nose. Fruity and spicy notes in the mouth. Again great hops from Salopian. Had a Centennial feel to it for me.

imdownthepub (10171) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 6, 2011
Cask conditioned at Banbury Beer Fest 11. Burnished gold with white head. Initially a fullish malt, reasonably sweet, quite roasty in a way, then a grapefruity hop, again bittersweet, mouthfilling and very refreshing. Lots of character throughout, I really quite liked it.

Fin (7379) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 5, 2011
Cask, gravity at Banbury Beer Festival 05.05.11 I was also directed to this beer by Glen and I have to say it was an excellent suggestion. Pours clear mid brown good clarity. Very rich in the mouth, big sweet malty body, good hoppy profile, dont get the citrus so much and I am interested in what the hop(s) are. Tasty stuff and tasting stronger than it is, like this a lot.

downender (6247) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - APR 29, 2011
On gravity at the Portcullis, Clifton, Bristol 29/04/2011. Slightly hazy brown in colour with a slight, white head. Apricot and peach fruit aroma with a yeasty edge. Grainy malt flavours, with plenty more fruit and yeast leading to a dryish finish. Good.

Cask gravity at Reading BF 2011. Mid brown. Tastes like a wheat beer. Some esters. Easy drinking giod condition. Rather good I thought. Good peachy fruit. Definitely estery.
