Gorgeous aroma- smells exactly like that thing when a brewer does the obligatory making you rub hops between your hands thing. Agreeable dry flavour with hints of grapefruit and miscellaneous citrus leading to a very long lasting dry finish.

Leighton (13189) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 27, 2015
Cask at the Great British Beer Festival 2014, Day 3 - London. Pours clear, vibrant gold with a lasting, frothy white head. Nice beer, with notes of dry pine, flinty minerals, some citrus notes, grassy bitterness. Light to medium bodied with fine carbonation; great condition. Lightly sweet on the finish with further grass, citrus rind, light pith and hay. Good stuff.

The_Osprey (2755) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 13, 2014
Cask at GBBF. Light orange, clear, still, very small white head. Aroma is musty card, background citrus. Body is light, low carbonation. Taste is damp cloth, ashtray, drying washing up liquid. Not fantastic.

GuideDogSaint (670) - Xiamen, CHINA - AUG 2, 2014
On gravity at the Butcher’s Hook, Bitterne Triangle. By the look of the cask it was near the end so this is an under-rating I expect. Golden brown no head. Citra aroma, bitter dry finish. Would like to try it again.

Cask at the "Summer of Love" Festival at the Rose & Crown, Sandhurst. Amber with a ring of white head; grapefruit aroma; grapefruit and tropical fruit taste; and a touch of spice to finish. Really crisp and refreshing.
