bhensonb (12014) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 15, 2011
Bottle from Mike in Truro. Pours amber with a creamy/bubbly off-white head. Aroma of light roast malt with some light type fruit. Flavor is roast malt with some fruity/citrus hop. It is bitter but the malt is strongly present, perhaps slightly dominant in the finish.

Leighton (13255) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 2, 2011
Bottle at home. Clear amber pour with a small, white head. Toasty malts and lemony hops on the nose. Lightly sweet, has some light bread and tangy plastic. Light in body with fine carbonation. Pretty bland on the finish, some very weak bitterness with a citric quality. Nothing special.

Phatman (176) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 30, 2010
Bottle. Thin head often a feature of bottles. Dark copper colour. Beautiful light citrusy aroma, very tempting. Gently set flavor with a lengthy, delicious hoppy flavor on top of the citrusy notes eventually leading to an ready going better palate.

Oakes (13156) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 2, 2010
Bottle, from Waitrose. Orangey-amber colour. Spicy, slightly phenolic aroma. Herbal character, nice subtle bitterness and a hint of chocolate in the malts. Good complex ale.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - SEP 1, 2010
Bottle. Deep copper. Small head. Hoppy aroma is balanced. Overall nice with good spiciness. A bit boring, but I think it would be better on cask.

tommann (2979) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 6, 2010
500ml bottle. Pours golden with a small head. Aroma is lemon hops. Not much to start then a citrus, hoppy, bitter finish.

BeerViking (2931) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 27, 2010
Cask at Questors Grapevine club in Ealing. Copper-coloured with a persistent medium-coarse white head, lots of fresh slightly lemony Goldings plus a faint fruity note on the nose, well balanced malty-bitter body, then a drying bitter - but maybe just a bit too harsh - finish.
