3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask, Stone Bistro. Pours a hazy pale amber, with creamy white head. Malt, light citrus hops, and lots of coriander. Very easy drinking, balance stone PA flavor, notes of grapefruit and bread, but also with a nice twist of spiced coriander. There was even bits of coriander in the bottom of my glass. Creamy mouthfeel (..cask). I enjoyed this.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On cask at The Daily Pint. Clear medium orange with two finger beige white head, fair retention. Coriander dominates the nose with some sweaty Cascades behind and a touch of biscuity malts. Flavor is the same with the coriander getting a little more perfumey. With stronger biscuit notes--still not getting much sweetness. Semi-dry finish with bitterness at a 3. Light carbonation with a light to medium body. The score made me not think much of the beer, but it took a typical biscuity sweaty citrus APA and added some nice bright spicy citrus element.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask (handpump) at the White Horse American Beer Festival, July 2009. I didn’t get a huge amount of Coriander in the initial whiff but it develops very strongly on the palate. Perhaps a bit too strongly for my taste – becoming too dominant for me. Not one of Stone’s top beers but pretty tasty nonetheless.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask at the Linkery tonight, paired with swordfish tacos. Always nice to get another stone tick especially one for a beer like this. I liked it a lot. Pours deep copper with a perfect 1 finger tan head. Nose is sweet and light with hints of coriander. Taste is sweet light with hops and coriander and overall nice biter.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask at the White Horse’s American Beer Festival 2009. Coriander aroma, coriander flavour. I might as well just chew on some coriander seeds. But it’s not all bad from a brewery that doesn’t do cask beer. There were hints of caramel and syrup amongst the coriander with a bitterness at the end. However, the palate was way too thin and it was too flat.

On tap at White Horse, Parsons Green. Smells and tastes of old socks. Hoppy aorma, but then fades badly.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask at the White Horse, Parsons Green, 3rd July 09. Slightly flat mid-amber. Mild hop aroma. The coriander didn’t really come through that strongly for me and I felt it was poor given Stone’s usual excellence.

A Mes rate: cask handpull at the Sloany Pony.
Dark amber with a thin bubbly off white head. Bloody hell, I think there may be so coriander in here... My god it’s almost undrinkable for me. The regular Pale is fantastic, this really is far too much for it to handle in my opinion. I struggled through as much as I could and then returned swiftly to the bar and ordered a Bastard and suddenly life was much better again.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask conditioned at The White Horse, Parsons Green, London. Hazed gold with no head. This was a reasonable beer, quite zesty with strong herby notes, perhaps a little over the top. It gets to be a little cough mixture like after a while, but there is a woody pine note late on.
