Grassy citrus hops dominate a great aroma. Taste is balanced and has the flavoursome hops, however a bittering bad taste forms after a while, still very drinkable and would love to have again.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
[Cask at GBBF 2005] An orange-brown beer with a small beige head. The aroma is sweet hoppy combined with notes of caramel - a lot of character. The flavor is sweet with lots of caramel and a bitter hoppy end, but from a hop sort I’m not fond of. The body is thin.

Beer No 36 on the Wilsons’ Road Trip 2005. Cask at The Ferry Boat, Helford Passage, Cornwall. Amber with off white head. Aroma of biscuity malts and oily hops, bit of seaweed (possibly from the sea, which was about 10 yards away!). Good mouthfeel leads to good hoppy finish. Nice malt/hop balance.

(cask at Turf Tavern, Oxford) Clear amber body with off-white head. Aroma is medium sweet, sea salt, and something I cannot place -- not unpleasant but definitely unusual. Taste is medium sweet, caramel, light earthy, fruity. Watery light body with light resin.

Amber coloured, thin lacing, white foamy layer; big floral, herbal hoppy nose; strong bitter sweet flavour; fine, long lasting aftertaste (floral hops); all in all a soft, light to medium bodied very well quaffable aromatic ale !

At the Chequers, Eynesbury, Cambs. Fine white head and honeyed aroma. I got a faint taste of toffee and liquorice. Not the bitterest beer, but very good.

great beer, slightly dry with a reddish brown hue, has the potential to replace London Pride as a regular on the hand pumps here

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask Conditioned at The Rising Sun, St Mawes, Cornwall. Orange amber beer with healthy bubbly head. This pub is in a beautiful setting overlooking the small harbour and this was a perfect accompianment after a long walk along the Roseland peninsular. Hoppy malty beer, refreshing and naturally sweet. Very nice indeed.
