[cask, The Haymarket Bar, Edinburgh] Brownish amber beer, nice thick white head. Sweet orange on the nose, grass, melon and a bit of earthy spice. Plenty of hop on the flavour too – this is a beefed up bitter. More citrus, apple and melon, caramel sweet malt and bready notes. Really enjoyable [21052012]

Cask at The Feathers (Nicholson’s pub), Broadway, London. An amber coloured pour with a thin white head on top. Hoppy, fruity aroma. Tastes hoppy, slightly bitter, some caramel, fruity. Quite a decent one but would have been even better if it had been served in better condition.

Svesse (7930) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAY 17, 2012
(Cask at Dog & Duck, Soho, London, 22 April 2012) Amber colour with foamy, off-white head. Fruity, malty nose with notes of orange, apricots and citrus peel. Fruity, malty taste with apricots, orange, chewy malt and a fresh citric bitterness in the finish. Medium body, with a touch of sweetness. Well balanced and tasty. Nice one.

Fin (9680) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 14, 2012
Cask, handpump The Chequers, Oxford 14.05.12 Amber with a white head, good clarity. A little thin and a touch watery at first for the strength but the hoppiness starts to assert itself and there is a little bitterness. My mouth is still a little tingly from the fallout from my Johnny Cash burger at Atomic Burger, Cowley Rd. A7 A4 T6 P3 Ov13 3.3

On tap @ the Haymarket Bar. Pours amber with a proportionate head. The nose is of grapefruit and there is more grapefruit on the taste. The palate is medium bodied with a medium thick texture and a clean finish. Overall, a good beer.
