Scopey (12244) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 8, 2016
Cask thanks to Fergus at Craft Clerko. The aroma is sweet, juicy, very peachy, tinned peach, candy and mango... perhaps slightly artificial, . The taste is very sweet upfront, sweet tinned peach, apricot, oily, fruit cocktail and icing sugar with a drying finish. Medium body and soft. A bit sweet and artificial tasting. I wouldnt order another.

mR_fr0g (8905) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 8, 2016
Cask at the CBC Clerkenwell, at the thornbridge tap takeover. A mostly clear golden yellow coloured pour with a lasting thin white head. Aroma is big sweet, peach melba fruit, apricot jam, sweet. Flavour is composed of semi sweet pale malts, sweet fruits, tropical peach, apricot, juicy, yogurt. Palate is semi sweet, lowish cask condition. Ok for what it is.

Leighton (18221) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 8, 2016
Cask at CBC Clerko. Pours clear yellow with a foamy, white head. The nose has loads of peach, perhaps a touch artificial. Medium sweet flavor with ample gummy peach candies, low bitterness. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Finishes with more sweet peach, faint hay and biscuit. A novelty.

harrisoni (17159) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 8, 2016
Cask handpull at Craft Clerkenwell. Hazy gold colour lasting white head. Yes very peachy indeed. Aroma of timned peaches and flavour of tinnned peaches plus some drying hop. Decent if a touch one dimensional.

berkshirejohn (5950) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 22, 2016
Cask at the Nags Head, Reading. A pale amber pour with a ring of white head; muted aroma of tinned peach; soft and dry in the mouth with a peachy taste, but again tinned rather than fresh, and a floury body with some sweet vanilla; then a gently bitter, fruity finish. All the Melba ingredients are there: peaches, ice cream, vanilla and raspberry, but overall it lacks intensity of flavour.

MrOrla (2185) - Odense C, DENMARK - JUL 21, 2016
Cask @ c4. Pours almost clear yellow with a white head. Aroma of peach, citrus, light grainy, a touch yeast. Taste is rather sweet with loads of peach, slight grain, and citrus. Decent

Christian (12708) - Odense, DENMARK - JUL 14, 2016
Cask at Christian Firtal. Hazy golden with a small white head. Strong peach aroma with just a hint of citrus. Sweet fruity flavour with plenty peach. A touch of malt and light grassy hops in the finish, but the dominant impression is peach syrup.

Cask at the Hanging Bat. Pours clear golden with a thick white head. Aromas of peach melba, pretty much as promised. Taste is floral, more peach. Peachy finish. Peach.
