reakt (949) - Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 20, 2008
JDW @ Victoria Station. Poured a hazed amber with an off white head. Grassy, metallic hops and sweet malts in the nose. Taste is much the same, grassy with sweet biscuity malts and a honey note. Quite well balanced and quaffable.

Cask (handpump) @ The Fat Cat, Norwich, England NR2.
Clear medium yellow orange amber color with a small to average, frothy - fizzy, fair lacing, mostly diminishing, off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, roasted, caramel, old malt, old apples. Flavor is moderate sweet and light to moderate bitter with a average duration. Body is medium to light, texture is oily, carbonation is soft to flat. (310708)

Draught. Low but lasting fluffy white head. Hazy amber body. Mild fruity caramel aroma and flavor with little hops bitterness. Low carbonation and a short aftertaste.

Cask, Irish Pub next to St Andrews Hall Norwich. A pre wedding pint prior to Guy’s wedding. I fear that this wasn’t in the best condition as I was expecting a lot more from this. Came over as lacking any real body or character; watery and thin with a bland vaguely stale aroma. Will re rate at some point.

renffisch (868) - london, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 8, 2008
got a bottle from realale.com to compare it to ethereals and tashis homebrew version. which came pretty close, but this is obviously a rate of the real thing. hazy amber little white rim. Aroma of coriander, nettles and a bit of farm, quite floral, hoppy with a tad of wet tobacco. Nicely bitter flavour, still floral, honeyed and hoppy, dry and mouthwatering, lovely beer.

[On draught at the Green Gate Inn, Caister-on-Sea, Norfolk] Finally found a pub serving decent quality real ale in Caister - although admittedly the choice was only this or Ruddles. Pours a pale orange-bronze with a large but diminishing head - this is an attractive pint! Soft carbonation leads into a very mellow, light-tasting pint - an earthy mellowness in the foregrouns with an odd sharpness behind that made me think of raspberries. In fact, summer fruits quickly came to dominate the flavour - this is very much an easy-drinking summer evening pint. However, there’s nothing outstanding about it, and it’s rather let down by a dusty bitter finish that doesn’t really fit in.

A good, yet weaker beer with a nice, fruity flavor. It’s a mild bitter that I enjoyed very much. Good stuff!

bhensonb (12138) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 24, 2008
Cask at The Spaniards on the Heath. Fruity aroma; amost peach. Golden amber color with a white head. A bit thin in body with mild carbonation. The fruit is over the top, but is balanced by biscuit tones. Finish is rather dry, and the bitter accumulates. Very enjoyable.

DonMagi (5595) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 23, 2008
Cask in the tennents bar. Aroma is sweet biscuity pale malts, grassy fruity and floural hop character. Taste is similar peppery biscuity malt character makes for some seriously easy drinking.
