Pale amber colour - almost the same as the Youngs Bitter that one of my companions was drinking. Very hoppy and bitter throughout - no doubt enhanced by the dry hopping in cask. Quite austere bitter finish. An excellent drinking bitter, if short on subtlety and complexity. Handpump, The Speaker, November 2003.

Cask Conditioned handpump Moon On The Square Northampton. An amber cooloured beer with a whitish head and lacing. Sweet spritzy berry fruitiness throughout. Light fruits. An interesting mouthfeel. Reasonably pleasant but signs of heaviness.

oh6gdx (20299) - Vasa, FINLAND - NOV 27, 2011
Cask@Market Porter, London. Orangeish golden colour with a mediumsized fluffy head that settles into a small creamy one quite fast. Leaves some slight lace. Aroma is bready malts, some sweet malts and also a nice fruity and floral hoppyness to it. Flavour is citrusy, mildly nectary and also has some grassy bitterness as well as a nice malty body to it. Well balanced and refreshing.

Aroma is fruity, peachy with some citrus and a touch of grassy hops. Taste is sweet though quite warm the bittering grassy hops come through.
