Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUL 2, 2008
Cask at the Cove, Covent Garden, 26th April 2004. Light amber with a pure white head that takes a while to settle. Very fruity on the nose and on the tongue - peaches, lemons, oranges, apples all present. The finish is a bit plasticky. Not really up my street, but hard to find any glaring flaw.

bhensonb (11364) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 23, 2008
Cask at the Cove, Covent Garden, London. Light amber color with a white head. Mild floral aroma. Medium body with mild carbonation. Rather grassy/herby/floral/spicey hops over mild caramel. Temperature was just right to bring out lots of flavors; what real ale is all about. Finish is clean; really good.

MaltOMeal (1092) - Land of Sugar, Texas, USA - MAR 21, 2008
cask at Market Porter, London. Pours a golden amber color with thin white head. As with most ales I’ve had over here, they aren’t very hoppy, although this one did have a slight bitterness to it. A bit if malty taste as well. This had a mouthfeel that was very smooth and slightly thin, yet drinkable.

MesandSim (7118) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 23, 2007
A Mes rate: Cask at Baker Street ’Sporks
Very slightly hazy golden blonde with a thin white film. Nice straight down the line hoppy stuff with lots of grapefruit and peach and a faint biscuity note. Dusty and unexpected malty finish. Pretty decent but not quite great.
