omhper (23711) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 28, 2007
Cask at Peterborough Beer Fest. Deep golden. Citric grapefruity hop aroma. Dense and sweet, yet never fruity . Quite intense hoppiness with very sweet buttery malt. Tastes like 9%, drinks like 4%. Thornbridge Hall do great stuff!

imdownthepub (13370) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 30, 2007
Cask conditioned at The Coach & Horses, Dronfield, Derbyshire. Gold with white head. the Thornbridge signature of citric, bittersweet, grapefruity hops is to the fore here with a light, dry malty background. A very decent beer indeed.

wyzzywyz22 (2108) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - NOV 20, 2008
Cask, Bodega, Newcastle Upon Tyne. This had a definite whiff of quality about it. Golden colour with a thin white head. Inticing aroma with bags of citrus and hop. Just knew I was going to like this. Very well balanced aromatic hop in the flavour and just very drinkable. Wish I could get this on a regular basis.

foxo82 (843) - Bromsgrove (via Leicester), Worcestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 3, 2012
Cask at The Victoria, Birmingham. Looks great, the best lacing you could wish for. Nothing noticeable about the aroma but a decent mix of maltiness and oats in the taste. Decent bitter finish without being dry. Smooth mouthfeel. Very good.
