(Cask, Rainhill Beer Fest): Dark copper, off white head. Aroma of malt, caramel, fruits. Taste is mostly sweet malt, fruit, caramel and hops but leads into a really bad metallic taste. Overly sweet, tarty fruit aftertaste too. Could’ve been a nice beer but spoiled.

Cask@the Victoria, Walsall. Dark copper beer with creamy medium head and excellent creamy lacing all the way up the glass. One of the best looking beers I have ever had. Aroma of malts, dull. Taste is fruity malts, resin and a little spice. A catwalk model in the beer looks, but only average in taste.

See review below the review below. I wanna go to the Goat and Tricycle. Who doesn’t? Beer basically uninteresting I think.

Cask at the Goat and Tricycle, Bournemouth. A slightly cloudy amber pour with quite a bubbly short lived head and no lace. No real aroma which is common for the style, but a very special fruity taste initially which leads to an amazing lingering spiciness with a touch of sourness which is quite unique. A special ale which I will certainly drink again.

Handpull at The Wheatsheaf (Southwark). Clear mahogany pour with minimal head. Aroma of unsweetened ice tea with lemon, a bit grassy. Taste ia more slightly sweetened light gunpowder tea - weird, but very refreshing. Slick, still, quick finishing ... Iced tea beer? Okay.

On tap @ the Ship Inn, Chester. Pours dark amber with decent head which disappears a little quick. Nose of biscuits and resin. Taste is mire resin then biscuits and just a little grapefruit on the end. Palate medium b n t with dry.finish. Overall, not the greatest but drinkable.

Sampled this bitter in Esquires, Glasgow (JDW) in October 2008. Cask, handpump dispense. Pale copper in colour with a slight haze and a thin white head. Interesting fruity aroma of green apples and pear - which reminded me of a extremely diluted Orkney Skullsplitter. Thin mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malt complex leading to a sharp fruity base of raisins and tart redcurrants. Sweetness persists into the aftertaste with a metallic tang of hop resins giving a rounded and well balanced bitter sweet finish with a just a hint of pear. An interesting ale and well worth a session. Recommended.
