Crisp floral bitter. Flowery sweet aroma belies the complex malt/hop balance in the taste. Slight palette.

Otterdance (164) - Norwich, Norfolk, ENGLAND - APR 22, 2013
UPDATED: OCT 28, 2013 Garden House. Clear tan body with a creamy white head. Floral, citrus hops with a cereal maltiness in the aroma. Grainy malt flavour, pleasant fruity citrus hops, with a fresh bitterness. Medium body with a soft effervescence. Very solid default bitter in Norfolk, especially good if kept well and served from a colder cellar.

kwik-lime (1382) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 12, 2013
Fruity verging on being a little bit tart. Not much character and slightly weak palate but perfectly acceptable session beer.

jmgreenuk (4988) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - NOV 4, 2012
Cask at the Kingston Arms, Cambridge. Poured golden brown with a thin white short-lived head. Not much in the aroma, but the flavour was nice and bitter. Nothing special. A half decent session ale but a taste was good enough for me.

Eructoblaster (3119) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 26, 2012
On tap at The Swan (London, UK). Limpid amber body with a thin, lasting off-white creamy head. Fresh malty/hoppy aroma with herbal and flowery hints. Its well balanced malty/hoppy taste carries herbal and grainy notes. Ends with a decent bitter/grainy finish. Average Bitter.

JorgeLee (1270) - Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 22, 2012
Cask in the Pickerel, Cambridge. Amber coloured bitter, quite a light overall beer but tasty malt and just enough hop to make it moreish. Tasty, and not strong so a good session beer.
