Bottle. Light gold with a small white head. Aromas are toffee with lots of pine and spices with hints of lemon. Flavours are equally hoppy with perhaps a touch more sweetness. Pine is still prevalent as is pepper. Dry and bitter on the finish. Very nice.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: APR 4, 2005 In my experience there’s a huge difference between the cask version and the bottle conditioned version of this beer. The grades are for the cask version. [Cask] A dark yellow beer with a fine white head. The aroma is sweet and very hoppy, but also with notes of yeast. The flavor is again very hoppy, but also with notes of oranges, grass, and oil, leading to a dry hoppy end. [Bottle Conditioned] A hazy yellow beer with a beutiful off-white head. The aroma is very sharp with grassy and hoppy notes. The flavor is very hoppy with a dry finish. A boring flavor combined with a thin body. [3/3/4/2/9]

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. Pale golden ale with a large fluffy white head, holding broadly the spoils of its bottle conditioning. Big green hoppy aroma, I get what duff means when he says ‘hints of some sort of eggy sulfuric thingy’ but that works for me. Good clean crisp flavours transcend into a clean, simple, bitter finish.
