jackl (3867) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - NOV 2, 2012
Cask @ JDW, Victoria Station. The pourís deep gold with a small white head. The nose is musty concord grape, some honey and dried wood. Sweet cereal. The taste is plenty oí white toast, watered-down honey syrup. Light harvest fruits, a bit of grain. Not much flavor really. Light, waifish body. Overall, boring. One to scroll past.

Cask-conditioned at the Commercial Rooms, Bristol, November 2012. Copper coloured with a decent, off-white head. Heavy cereal malts, tangerine fruit sweetness and a moderately bitter finish. Didnít do much for me.

[Gravity cask at Back of Beyond (JDW), Reading] Amber, slight white head. Sweet lots of caramel, a little wisp of citrus, just enough bitterness to balance. OK, but not great.

Jonb5 (321) - Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 30, 2012
Pint from JDW real ale festival. Copper colour, slight haze, one finger head which it held well. Very hoppy aroma, particulary Goldings. Tasted a bit watery, notes of citrus fruit, slightly bittersweet, bitter finish. Thin texture, had a slightly coarse edge, minimal carbonation. Overall looked good, aroma promised much but didnít quite deliver.
