<i>Cask Conditioned at J.D. Watherspoon - The Shakespear’s Head, London, 4.4% ABV</i>
Hazy deep blond color; thin creamy head. The aroma is light, perfumy, flowery (very light elderflowers). Dry toffee flavor, quite strong bitterness, but nothing special.

imdownthepub (13374) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 14, 2005
Cask Conditioned at a JDW. Orange amber beer with bubbly white head. It’s surprising that Sheps have retained this beer just for JDW Festivals, much more could be made of it. There is a dusty hoppiness throughout, the same flavour you get from chewing a hop bud, perhaps a little overwhelming, but it is definitely Fuggles. A light crisp base to carry the flavour, which it does well. On the drier side, very enjoyable.

Cask, The Highcross, Leicester. Golden with a small head. Aromas are grapefruit with peppery, earthy hops. Some woody pine with low malts. Flavours are grapefruit, apricot and melon with a dry, bitter finish. Takes a while to get going.
