The taste is hoppy with summer fruits and a touch of roasted malt and caramel. A moderately bitter finish. Quite smooth and easy to drink. I really enjoyed this.

3.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask. Clear golden larger-like body, small head. Floral flavors, citrus and some honey sweetness. Very light bodied, tending towards watery. Hops and dryness in the finish. Pleasent pint, easy to drink session beer. Left me with the impression that something was missing in the middle of the flavour palate. Nice though, I’d have it again.

Sampled on my Cornish adventure from 26 - 28 January 2007 whilst visiting my friend and ratebeer fellow member Ruprecht - Very nice actually. Tastes stronger and more hoppy than the bottled version. Amber in colour and has a nice citrus aftertaste, but this aint no lemon!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask, Gardeners Arms (Plantation Street), Oxford. Copper, light tan/gold cap. Bright perfumey honeysuckle, and orange blossom aroma. Fresh, clean hop flavor and bright malt. A clean but not overbearing hop smack finish. Delicate, light palate. A lovely ale, one I’d love to revisit on a hot summer day.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: FEB 23, 2014 Cask conditioned - handpump - Malt Shovel Northampton. A golden coloured beer with some off white lacing but barely any head. The aroma is fruity citrus and hoppy. A good dose of American hops must go into this as the taste shows testament to also. There may be some pineapple notes in what is a lovely fruity finish. Good stuff. Score 3.8
Subsequent ratings scored 3.6, 3.6, 3.5, 3.6, 3.6, 3.3 and 3.6. Average becomes 3.6
