COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular.
A straw coloured extremely moreish session beer that has a surprisingly full flavour for its strength. A pleasant and distinctive aroma is followed by a moderate hop bitterness. The fresh finish is shorter than Shere Drop, and leaves you wanting another...

MrAleman (111) - Wiltshire, ENGLAND - AUG 25, 2008
UPDATED: SEP 6, 2008 Brewed locally and a very good beer. Nice tasting and refreshing, full of flavour and not too heavy so quite drinkable too.

Skinnyviking (7905) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 16, 2008
Cask. Low fluffy off-white and quickly disappearing head. Clear golden body. Relatively bitter aroma and flavor with a bit of lemon but not much else. Low carbonation and a short aftertaste.

downender (7046) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 15, 2008
On gravity at the Bristol Beer Festival 14/3/08. Amber coloured with a slight white. A drinkable session bitter with some citrus hop and sweet malt aroma, followed by light malt flavours and a short bitter finish. Ok.

Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAR 2, 2008
UPDATED: AUG 9, 2008 Gravity cask at the Battersea Beer Festival, 7th Feb 2008. Alas, a real disappointment after the Shere Drop. Bright gold colour and it was served in excellent condition, but the aroma and flavour are bland. There’s some grapefruit and maybe a floral hint, but overall this is forgettable session beer.
Re-rated on cask at GBBF 08, up from a 2.8. A little better than last time, but still rubbish compared to the Shere Drop.

Cask at GBBF 2007. A golden beer with a rim of white head. The aroma is sweet malty, while the flavor is sweet with notes of malt as well as lighter notes of hops, flowers, and grass.
