maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - MAY 18, 2009
Cask conditioned handpump Coach & Horses Dronfield. A really attractive bright gold coloured beer with a white head and lacing. The aroma has lemony hops and a bit of toffee or caramel. The taste has good bitterness and again that hint of caramel. Good but lacking any wow factor.

mabel (8537) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 11, 2010
[3242-20100802] Cask. Odd herbal yeast and hops in the aroma. Slightly hazy, light orange brown body with a quick foamy white head. Herbal notes continue in the flavour with mild leafy hops. Medium body. Not as wonderful as hoped, a little disappointing.
(@ CASK Pub & Kitchen, London, England)

ManVsBeer (8499) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 18, 2014
Cask @ Old Gate, Hebden Bridge. Golden with a thin creamy head. Hopped with a high fruity sweetness - and too sugary to comfortably enjoy.

Svesse (7778) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - AUG 30, 2008
(Cask at The Rake, Southwark, London, 9 Aug 2008) Golden colour with frothy, white head. Fruity, hoppy nose with notes of citrus, mainly grapefruit. Fruity, hoppy taste with citrus (orange, grapefruit), apricots and a generous, citrussy bitterness in the finish. Very nice, very drinkable.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 8, 2008
A Mes rate: Cask at the White Horse.
Considering this followed a cask Black Albert and a draught Gonzo anyone could be forgiven for not thinking too much of this but you know what, it’s pretty bloody good. A shining example of quality English brewing like most beers from this brewer. Aroma is full of massive peachy, grapefruit hops with some perfect sweetish biscuity malt waaay in the background. Slightly hazy gold appearance with a very thin off white head. Flavour is a superb balance of grassy and aromatic U.S. hops with some wonderful earthy English malt. Delicate yet fantastic floral and bitter hop finish. Four ratings... four 3.8’s. Can’t be bad.

jackl (7016) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 22, 2012
Cask @ CPK. Light golden straw color with a tiny white head. The nose is light citrus, grass, some subtle pine. Faint. The taste is light malty strawberry and some lemon wood. More straw. Light body. Overall, an OK APA. Nothing spectacular.

Cask på Sheffield Tap 30 Sep 10. Lys gylden. Uklar. Lavt luftig skum. Svak grapefruktaroma. Smaken i samme gate. God men uvariert.

jaghana (5451) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - APR 9, 2012
Bottle 50cl, a clear yellow beer with good head. Nose is very hopy on grass and hay. Aroma is medium malty with a huge hops bouquet, very grassy and hay with high bitterness, grapefruit notes, well done beer and quite drinkable.

Beersiveknown (5001) - NORTHERN IRELAND - MAY 22, 2012
Hazy amber with fluffy off-white head a slight citrus aroma. Gentle carbonation, sweet malt and some lemony hops. Quite difficult to taste after human cannonball...
