Decent hints of fruitiness amongst the hoppiness in this bitter. Not full of zest though.

Crosse Keys Spoons. Clear gold beer. Little white head. Light dry palate. Mild fine carbonation. Mild sulphur. Okay malts, dry. Mild orangey hop. Dry finish. Meh!

Tasted this in The Esquire House, Glasgow (JDW) in October 2011. Cask, handpump dispense. Dark amber in colour with a thin white head. Fresh citric notes present in the short aroma. Thin mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malt base gives a zesty fruit note of pink grapefruit long in intensity. Dry lemony hop flowers add a slight bitter edge to the short aftertaste. Finish is dry and pithy with grapefruit still evident. An ok session bitter.

pours an orange colour with a one finger head the aroma of orange peel and citrus in the taste its got plenty of orange zest and citrus a very good session beer.

[Cask at the Monk’s Retreat (JDW), Reading] Light amber with a loose white head and a slight fizz. Some citrus, a little sulphur and a light dirty bitterness. Watery, and yet smooth, almost cloying in the mouth. Overall it’s very bland, but not unpleasant.

downender (10741) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 23, 2011
Cask-conditoned at the Knights Templar (JDW), Bristol 16/10/2011. Amber with a slight white head. Solid cereal malts, some grassy hops and a touch of the Wadworth’s yeast character. Ok.

SilkTork (7239) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - OCT 19, 2011
2011 JDW Autumn Beer Fest, Rochester. Mid to dark amber. Good body. Sweet fruit. Dry finish. Dusty hops. Pleasant session beer.

stravale (3335) - IRELAND - OCT 16, 2011
Cask @ The King’s Highway JDW, Inverness.
Appearance Amber, thin dense white head...good lacing
Aroma Little aroma, bit of minerals and vegetables.
Taste Bitter hops..some biscuity malt...woody..minerals...vegetables...not good.
Palate Soft carb.....lingering bitter finish...metallic sourness...doesn’t clean.
Overall Over bitter finish. Another poor JDW Festival beer. The commercial description is a joke.

Benjii (3050) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 16, 2011
On cask at the JDW Festival, Foot of the Walk. Pours a deep golden colour with a fair beige head. Aroma of yeast, barley, grass and hay. Similar flavours with a strange dried fish character. Mild carbonation and CO2 prickle with an oily mouth-feel.

JohnRMurdoch (5840) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - OCT 15, 2011
Cask @ Camperdown Place JDW. Mild grain resin aroma. Amber brown colour reasonable head. Dry citrus resin flavour, bitter aftertaste. Interesting rather than good.
