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’..

ladnewton (1803) - 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.

imdownthepub (13232) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 7, 2012
Cask conditioned at Far From the Madding Crowd, Oxford. Gold with white head. Light, dryish but fruity, gooseberry, pear, a hint of tartness and a light lemony hop note. Thinnish on the palate, but in a decent way. Pretty good.

wheresthepath (2121) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - APR 26, 2016
Cask at Chippenham Beer Festival. Clear golden-amber. Floral and lemon flavours. Modern, but not over the top, just a pleasant refreshing ale with a decent body and flavour. An enjoyable one to finish the fest with.

Leighton (18526) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 8, 2012
Cask at CBC, London. Pours clear, rich gold with a light head. Crack, corn and cereal nose. Medium sweet flavor, lightly syrupy, with light toasted grain. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Mildly dry finish, some crisp corn, light grain, straw, and creamy dough. Not bad at all.

BlackHaddock (6340) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 20, 2014
Cask half-pint in Far From The Madding Crowd, on 18th Oct 2014, just before going to the CAMRA Oxford beer festival. Golden body, bright and clear, the head white and lasting. Nose is malt sweet with a citrus bent, as is the taste. Drying finish to this fairly light flavoured sweet brew, nice.

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.

Fin (9587) - 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
