haddonsman (1234) - Derby, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - OCT 20, 2004
Cask at Morley Hayes Golf Club, Derby. Amber body, tight white head, probably the best bitter palate I’ve had, so well balanced and smooth.

BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - OCT 19, 2004
Cask: Clear orangey amber hue.Fruity malt, tae aroma. Good mix on the palate, sweet fruity (almost jammy), strong prickly bitter bite, balances out well in the aftertaste.

TheBeerGod (5045) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - SEP 26, 2004
Cask at the Old Bell in London. Browned amber body. Nose has some sulphur in it with a hoppy backbone. Yep, some rotten egg smell in there. Taste is hops with mild malt. Some oiliness and bitterness on the palate with faint carbonation feel. Finish is bitter with mild malt notes coming through around the edges.

UPDATED: JAN 31, 2005 Cask @ Jude the Obscure, Oxford, UK Backlog 14 Aug 2004
This pint was in top condition. I have had this beer on many, many occasions, but never as good as this! It had a malty dishwater (perfect!) aroma. The flowery hop taste added to the experience. And, to round it off, a lovely biscuity aftertaste.
RERATE: Cask @ Peveril of the Peak, Manchester, UK 27 Jan 2005
This sample was slightly sour. (Rerated just to fit my personal logs) 5/5/5/2/8 (2.5)

Draught. Golden coloured. White generous head, good lacing. Hoppy aroma. Dry, bitter and fruity (grapefruit) taste. Great beer.

Hbie (133) - Essex, ENGLAND - JUN 17, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 6, 2004 Cask conditioned at various pubs and beer festivals over the years. Excellent beer of its type. Light golden colour, quite bitter sharp hoppy flavour from the Styrian Goldings, probably not as good as it used to be, seems to have slightly less body now.

dreamboat (186) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUN 14, 2004
Fark gold, slightly hazy, coarse carbonation with a tight head. Fresh hoppy aroma, with a touch of crystal sweetness there too. In your face hop bitterness which is still somehow smooth, and hard no to enjoy.

zippermouth (35) - Newcastle, ENGLAND - APR 9, 2004
Lip smacking good. More and more pubs now have this since Madge had her say. Sometimes its good and sometimes its zippy but sometimes it lets you down. On form this is delicate and o so yummy.
