Cask,hand pulled at Rocklands Club,Redditch,Worcestershire.25th march.Golden amber pour sporting a large white creamy head which remained throughout.Strong citrus and pine aromas which were also very evident in the taste.A nice background flavour of vanilla and fruit also present.Lovely hoppy ending with citrus again very evident.Very very easy to drink brew backed up by the fact i was on my 3rd inside 10 minutes which is always my sign of how good a beer is,’how quick it goes down the glass’..

Grassy hop dominates with a touch of citrus. Decent enough if somewhat generic beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Fin (8704) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 22, 2012
Cask handpump at Far From the Madding Crowd, Oxford 22.06.12 Pours gold amber with a slim white head, looks great. Initially a little sweet and despite being a decent drop quite a departure from the very hoppy Acorn Newport IPA. Smooth easy drinking golden bitter. The bitterness is there but a tad too subtle for me. Pleasant beer but I would have liked something a bit brasher and more assertive. A6 A5 T7 P3 Ov12 3.3

Cask conditioned handpump Far From The Madding Crowd Oxford. An orange gold coloured beer with hardly any head. A decent sticky orangey hoppy beer. A bit of sweet toffee malt to balance. A good body and a pretty nice beer.

foxo82 (815) - Bromsgrove (via Leicester), Worcestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 10, 2012
Cask at Leicester Beer Festival 2012. Clear amber with no head. No noticeable aroma, slight bitter hops but really not much to this. Short finish. A bit watery. A bit ordinary when compared with many of the other beers I tried at the festival. Probably a decent session beer.

leaparsons (9110) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 9, 2012
Cask, Leicester Fest 12. Hazy gold with a bubbly foam. Aromas are toffee, caramel and apple with bready yeast and soft spices. Earthy with herbal notes. Leafy with autumn berries. Flavours are biscuit and cereal with mellow lemon and some cardboard. Bready yeast with earthy apple and pear. Well carbonated with a sweet, dry finish. Not bad.
