Pint at the Bridge in Newcastle, hazy as promised, but the head didn’t last. Tropical fruit aromas and flavours, with a nice bitter smack on the swallow.

Oakes (12723) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 3, 2014
Amber and a bit hazy. Sweet and a bit bland and caramelly, and doesn’t really deliver much hop character.

Craft - Clerkenwell. Cask. Almost clear gold beer, tidy white head. Smooth palate, fine carbonation. Decent hops, drop of fresh orange. Little marmalade and fresh orange. Mild minerals and a touch of creamy malt. Very drinkable!

wimpyjoe (4152) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 11, 2012
Flat looking golden ale with a full tropical fruit aroma, but more of a bitterness for its taste.

zimbo (578) - SCOTLAND - OCT 11, 2012
UPDATED: JUL 15, 2013 Cask at the Blue Blazer dispensed via Scottish air pressure, no sparkler. Pours with a big beautiful beaming head. Gorgeous clear clean pure orange copper sparkle. Bready on the nose and very clean but big and morishly biscuity in the mouth and on the tongue. Dry with very little if any residual sweetness. The perfect example of a classic cask pale ale with a twist of the modern which steers well away from bland, twig water, big, the extreme or stupid. The balance and taste are moderate but completely tastily dominant. Truly excellent.

Dr_Butty (87) - SCOTLAND - SEP 8, 2012
Bottle from drinkmonger. Pours deep golden, white head. Fruity hop aromas. Predominant flavours from citric hops, orange and grapefruit. Clean bitterness, but not overpowering, extends to the finish. Delicious stuff.
