omhper (19976) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - APR 16, 2002
Sample cask conditioned. Flowery nose. Grapefruit aroma. Light- to medium bodied. Soapy hoppiness, sparkling mouthfeel. Dry, salty bitter finish. A nice drinkable cask bitter with an American touch.
The bottled version appears less flavourful, and lacks the freshness and sparkling mouthfeel of the cask version. This rating is for the cask version.

fiulijn (15360) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 13, 2012
Cask at Wetherspoon, Birmingham Airport public area
Hazy golden color, with small creamy head. Simple aroma, light malt. Some malt and caramel flavor, the yeast character reminds the Belgian ales, it has a grassy touch, and relatively strong bitterness.
Pleasant, but not very British.
