COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask: Regular. Also available bottle conditioned.

"A light refreshing distinctively hoppy beer with a freshness that belies its strength, so easy to drink it will fool all but the crustiest of sea dogs."

YogiBeera (2475) - New Jersey, USA - FEB 8, 2005
Cask: Golden, small frothy head. Grain, cereal, hops and herb taste. Kind of plain hops nose. Ok - but not too exciting.

Mungo (2472) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - JUN 18, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 13, 2004 Cask conditioned @ JDW. Head is a wisp of unappetising bubbles such as might be found on still water near a wier. Base of plain malt with herbal hops and faint citric fruitiness. Bittersweet body with a hint of sourness. Seems like it has the potential to be quite good but was in poor condition. (2.9) Re-Rate. Pale with thick creamy head. tropical fruit aroma. Quite sweet almost cloying with ashy bitterness. Drinkable with a hint of solvent. I think my score was slightly generous first time round. (2.8)

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - APR 7, 2004
Bottled. Blond with a soft white head. Crisp, citrus hop aroma. Clean hop lines the transfer from hop oil consistency to a dry hop finish. Very attractive pale ale.

TheGrandMaster (2334) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 18, 2006
Pint pulled at The Railway in Putney (London), poured a lively white and then settled to a very clear pale straw with a good thick white head. A sharp tangy hoppiness in the aroma with hints of peachy fruits. Subtle citrus fruits in the flavour with a dry bitterness all the way through the mouth. There was also an unfortunately hoppy tanginess which I suspect is because of the lack of quality control at my local JDW.

jookos (2162) - FINLAND - APR 9, 2014
Cask@angle. Yellow golden. Mellow fruity, melon/cantalope, green hops. Medium full bodied, softly grainy. Dry. Refreshing to have something else than the normal bitters on cask.

Gethinbeer (2158) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - JUN 18, 2006
On tap in Weatherspoons, Cambridge. Cloudy yellow with slight head. Musty, Yeasty honey aroma. Sweet honey flavour but flat, no character. Overall the beer had a good taste but I feel the beer was not looked after in the pub. I am confident this beer is better in the bottle or from a decent pub.

Cask at the Swan in the Rushes, Loughborough. Golden with a creamy white head. Citrus aroma. Citrus and hoppy flavours with a nice dry hoppy finish. Smooth and drinkable, with a creamy mouthfeel.

Cask at Farnham Beerex 2010. Pours a pale amber colour, with a good fruity aroma, was a bit thin in the taste, long tart hoppy finish with hints of grapefruit. very clean tasting and drinkable.
