DruncanVeasey (7191) - NUNEATON, Top 18, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - AUG 6, 2008
Cask, The Criterion, Leicester. Lacy gold pint drenched with neat grapefruit loveliness. Resinous, earthy, raw and smooth. Better than Oakham. Instantly cut through all that Belgian nonsense with a great big citrussy slap in the face. Magnificent.

Fin (7421) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 28, 2007
Cask at The Cape of Good Hope, Warwick, 28-12-07 Poured golden with fruity aroma. This beer really hits you with loads of fruity juiciness, itís refreshing and just bursting with such a refreshing bitter hoppy flavour, loved it.

imdownthepub (10291) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 2, 2006
Cask conditioned at The Cape of Good Hope, Warwick. Pale gold with short lasting head. Not the best looking beer, but this one is about taste. There is a pale malty base, not much more than a carrier for the big hop flavour delivered with panache I should say. Herby is true, this has a touch of sage and parsley then an enormous bitterness, in fact this is very bitter on a long finish. Good stuff.

paleryder (5) - ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2005 does not count
On cask at Dragon Inn, Worcester. Small head that didnít hang about in the glass. Nice whiff of herbs in aroma, wasnít overpowering. Real firm, bitter flavour that emphasised hops, leading to a long finish that still maintained the herbal background. A really pleasant pint.

Ungstrup (29334) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 12, 2005
[Cask at GBBF 2005] An orange beer with a thin white head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of caramel and so is the flavor. OK.

Mads Langtved (2245) - Copenhagen K, DENMARK - NOV 12, 2005
Cask conditioned GBBF 2005: A lot of citrus in the nose. Quite fullbodied and very hoppy. This is a great ESB.

chriso (7365) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 9, 2005
Cask (handpump), GBBF, August 2005 (Day 2). Mid gold colour. The emphasis is, as the name suggests, firmly on the hops (although the commercial description, oddly, describes it as malty, which I did not find to be the case). Very grassy and herbaceous on the nose. Lots of citrus on the palate. Dry and fairly bitter, building in the lingering aftertaste. Well made.
