The_Osprey (5550) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 4, 2016
Cask HP at The Kings Tun, Kingston as ’Thornbridge Melba’. Pale yellow gold, still, clear, small creamy white head, full lacing. Aroma is peach yoghurt, General peach, apricot, mango. Body is smooth with low carbonation. Taste is more peach yoghurt, biscuity malt, some salty floral hop character, fruit squash. A bit of fun. Nice for the first few sips but I couldn’t drink a pint of this.

cask at the york tap
hazy pale amber, fruity aroma, quite sweet almost cloying peaches, moderate bitterness, full bodied but low carbonation - like pecheresse without the carbonation or tartness.

ManVsBeer (8057) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 22, 2015
Cask @ Old Gate, Hebden Bridge. Golden with a small creamy head. Its aroma is the same as peach melba yoghurt. Its taste is not quite as pronounced, but it’s still recognisably peach in flavour.

Parmenion777 (109) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 23, 2015
Pale, clear gold with a thin white head. Definite peach aroma but not overpowering or sickly sweet. Some sweetness but lacking flavour. Not a great IPA.
