Cask @ CASK Pub & Kitchen. Hazy amber brown colour, not much head. Resin, grain & mixed fruit aroma & flavour. Dry aftertaste. Quite smooth. Quite unusual.

Scopey (12504) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 23, 2013
Cask at the Sheffield Tap. It pours clear amber with a medium white head. The nose is zesty orange, tangerine, Irn Bru, wood and some urine. The taste is pine, oat, grainy, grass, light sweetness, orange and tangerine with a dry, bitter finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Smooth and pretty drinkable.

Beermack (725) - London, ENGLAND - MAY 27, 2013
Cask pint at Porterhouse, Temple Bar. Light Amber pour. Orange, light caramel, and herbs on the nose. Pithy grapefruit comes alongside the orange in the taste - quite juicy initially but then overtaken by light caramel and woody malt notes and a bit of pine. Lingering earthy, herbal bitterness as well as residual pine flavour. Tasty stuff.

stravale (2778) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - MAR 24, 2014
Cask @ The Hallamshire House, Sheffield [210314] [From memory as notes lost]
Has soft citrus tropical notes and similar flavours. Fairly hoppy, with soft sweet fruity malts, but not as hoppy as Kipling. Was quite decent as I recall...remember scoring it 3.4

jjsint (2328) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - MAR 12, 2016
Handpull cask at the Criterion, Leicester. Mid- to dark gold, clear with a decent tight white head. Slight orchard fruit aroma combined with some grain and wiid shavings. Lovely full taste with sweet apricot at the fore. Full body for a beer of this strength and you can really savour the natural carbonation. Not one of Thornbridge’s absolute best but solid all the same.

2nd August 2010. Thornbridge event at the Cask & Kitchen.
Hazy pale gold beer. Tiny white head. Light hop nose. Soft palate - very low carbonation. A little citrus and a little grapefruit tickels the taste buds. A whisper of sulphur - just a whisper. Finishes semi dry.
