ladnewton (1373) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 1, 2011
Cask at Craft Beer Co on 30th November 2011. Clear amber with very thin white film and no lacing. Clean, sweet malty, slightly woody aromas. Very fruity liquid with berries, soft fruit and biscuit maltiness. A lingering sweet finish ensues, with clean maltiness the main feature. Zingy, light carbonation. Enjoyable pint.

kwik-lime (1241) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 25, 2012
Grassy hop dominates with a touch of citrus. Decent enough if somewhat generic beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

foxo82 (673) - Tamworth (via Leicester), Staffordshire, 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.

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’..
