Clear copper with a medium white head, good retention. Aroma is slightly sulfurous, with some nuts and caramel trying to surface. Very lively carbonation. Dry hoppy flavours of pine/herbs and a bitter astringent finish. Just OK

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A mid golden brown coloured beer, thickish white head. A light hoppy nose accompanied by a sweetish caramel malt aroma. The taste is bitter and hoppy to start, some fruit flavours that blends into a sweetish malty finish. (Cask - The 2006 Peterborough Beer Festival).

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask, handpump @ the Red Lion (I’m quite sure?), Helston, Cornwall.
Slightly hazy, orange gold in body with a stirred up, bubbly white head that drabbed foam down the glass. Short-lived burst of grassy, raspy hops, salt and yeast in the aroma. Flavoursome enough in the mouth. Quite a fresh palate dominated by tangy grapefruit, lemon and lime flavours with just a touch of pale malt and pasty yeasty notes that added body and smoothness to the flat mouthfeel. Gently bitter and grassy on the swallow but quite short in length. Very refreshing, light session ale. 5,4,6,3,14
Bottle, the Lizard point general store, The Lizard, Cornwall.
Lovely, bright sunny gold with fine carbonation raising up to a short film of white that left some good legs. Hint of salt and seaweed in the aroma atop some fresh pine and grass. Sweet caramel upfront in the mouth before drying out well. Light in carbonation showing off some grapefruit, lemon rind and palest malt flavours before finishing off crisp and short in the swallow. Fairly easy to drink though I found it to get heavy as the pint progressed. Nice. (50cL, 21/09/07) 6,3,7,3,14

UPDATED: JUL 10, 2007 All to add is an excellent ale.
From bottle. Good crisp fruity aroma of sweet pears maybe. Clear golden appearance with a decent head. Very nice smooth texture with a fruity taste. Not much left on the palette. Overall I enjoyed this beer a lot. A very good refreshing ale.

Cask @ Cove Bar, Covent Garden. A rounded beer with a little grapefruit in the taste which wasn’t offensive, then lemons. Dull looking, orangey golden body with a reasonable head.
