Cask handpull at Craft Beer Co. Yes a little boozy and yes may be better on keg but this is good. Aroma of sticky hops. The carbonation on the mouthfeel may be better. Big pink grapefruit. Slightly syrupy toffee but excellent.

Had this at Craft, Clerkenwell, Saturday 17th August 2013 cask handpump dispense. Its a bit gloomy in here so colourwise I am uncertain but maybe murky amber. Crikey this is a heavy beer that drinks far easier than it should. In the mouth it is citrussy but also with plenty of pine, some grapefruit and a little pithiness, but I just keep thinking that it just feels a bit flat, it really needs a lift. It is also a bit sweet and syrupy in fact there is a heavy vein of hoppy sweetness. Really surprised that I didn’t go a bundle on this, as I have enjoyed the Siren stuff so far. Will try again perhaps on keg maybe? A7 A3 T6 P3 Ov13 3.2

August 17, 2013 - handpull cask at Craft Beer Co, Clerkenwell. Looked great - hazy orange with a large and lasting creamy/rocky off-white head - gorgeous looking full pint. Aroma was just what I needed -alcohol, resin, spruce, citrus and decidedly alcohol - taste followed but quite floral - a big and unapologetic beer. Big-bodied, too, okay carbonation, reasonably long pithy fruity finish - packs a mid-level wallop. Great beer.

Keg at CBC Islington during the Siren tap takeover - London. Pours clear, yellow-gold with a fine, white cream head. Lemon and tangerine predominate in the nose. Medium sweet flavor with dry citrus fruits, pine needles. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Lightly warming finish, sticky, with oily hops, dry tangering. Very tasty. Balance is better here than it is with the cask lime version.
