Towey1989 (1820) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 10, 2016
Cask at The Roebuck, Leek (Titanic) A clear deep golden colour with a medium white head. Aroma of candied orange, peach, some hedgerow fruits, slight caramel and subtle herbal hops. Taste of orange, peach, some hedgerow fruits, slight caramel, a little biscuit and subtle herbal hops. Light bodied and a slight oily texture. A dry, fruity, herbal hop bitterness in the finish. A fruity golden ale with a lot more hop presence than standard goldens. Decent.

DeanF (2348) - Alberta, CANADA - JUL 16, 2016
Aroma is peach and some malts. Has a good creamy head with a slight golden foggy body. Flavour is soft peach and nutty malt. It like how the low key malts made it satisfying. Itís not a big beer but very drinkable.

Cask gravity at the Watford beer fest 2014. Golden orange coloured pour with a loose white head. Aroma is dirty, skunky hop, mid sweet and some lemon citrus. Flavour is honey and caramel base malt, floral and grassy hop, semi sweet. Palate is fullish body, syrup and dirty grassy hop. OK but a bit rough round the edges.
