bhensonb (10908) - 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.

sm89walt (1754) - Northern Beaches, Sydney, AUSTRALIA - SEP 17, 2007
UPDATED: JUN 19, 2011 Cask - Fur & Feather, Woodbastwick. Clear amber in colour with a small, foamy white head. Good biscuity malt profile, sweet on the nose with nice English hop floral & citrus qualities. A very easy drinking session bitter. Solid malt structure with overtones of light citrus and a green English hop tone and finishing bitterness. Light to medium body, soft carbonation, rounded & pleasant mouthfeel.
