2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask, Pennyblacks, Birmingham UK. Pale, more grapefruit aroma than lemon, I thought, sharp, zingy, hoppy and fruity. Not bad, but nothing outstanding.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask at the Monks Retreat (JDW), Reading. Golden coloured with a dense off-white head; peach aroma; light and fruity with apricot and peach flavours and soft and sweet mouth feel; sustained, gently bitter finish. Very drinkable.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask gravity, The Crown Summer BF 09, Nuneaton. Headless iced tea looks. Unassertive apple, sultana and sappy dandelion aroma. Soft grassy hop, bread and biscuit with a bitter soapy linger softened with digestives. OK but nothing I’d rush back to.

UPDATED: MAR 5, 2011 Tasting notes from 2002 Harbury Beer Festival. Rich copper and cloudy. Fruit, mild hops and malt aromas...very pleasant. Great balance of malt and hops. Excellent session beer and fun to drink.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask conditioned @ Hants Bowman, Dundridge. Cloudy copper colour. Doughy yeast, with malt and fruity aroma. Well balanced with a bitter finish. Not the light floral perfumed beer that the name led me to expect but pleasant all the same.
