6 varieties of hops are used in total, including a variety grown in Cornwall by the Eden Project. This combination gives the beer a real hoppy punch to the aroma and flavour, supported and balanced by a sweet body, and a dry, bitter and lingering finish.

DruncanVeasey (8012) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - APR 3, 2010
Cask handpull, The Eden Project, Cornwall. Brilliant, almost Lucozade-orange gold with a fine slick. Fine aroma with fresh crushed biscuits, tea, blossom and orange peel hints. Fresh and balanced with tangy hop, clementine, lemon puffs, perfume and vanilla. Shows off the local hops to fine effect, if they do only constitute a sixth of the hop recipe. Cool.

At Tom Cobley’s Inn, Spreyton, Devon. Gold in appearance with short head. Hoppy, floral scent. Well balanced (less bitter than I expected) and some carbonation. Hoppy start then some nuts and biscuits on the end.

caesar (6644) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - APR 30, 2010
Cask @ The Halfway House, Edinburgh. Clear golden color, short head. Hoppy, citrussy, hint of yoghurt. Decent start of a weekend trip to Scotland!

larsga (7293) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 3, 2010
Small white head. Coppery body. Faint tropical fruity floral aroma, very harmonic. Dry-sweetish citric mango taste with mealy floral notes. Mild, smooth mouthfeel. Mid-bodied. Dryish floral resiny aftertaste with fruity mealy notes. Very nice and highly drinkable. (0.25l cask at Trafalgar Tavern, Greenwich, London.)

harrisoni (17278) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - APR 4, 2010
Cask gravity at The Chambers, Folkestone. Golden colour. I wasn’t expecting anything too hoppy, but this is very good. Very good smack of sherberty hop on the finish. An oddish acidic quality, but the hops are excellent

DanielBrown (4381) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 18, 2010
Hand pulled at the Dog, Warley. Hop breathed bitter, but no follow through in flavour. Grassy finish - short and inoffensive. What’s the opposite of compelling?

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 13, 2010
Cask at Wellington Arms, Bedford. Gold with a small white head. Slightly citric hop aroma and taste. Some bitterness. Not a great deal going on here despite the six varieties of hop used. Having said that, it was a thoroughly acceptable sessioner which went down well.
