Vladivostok (485) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JAN 26, 2014
This is a gentle pale beer with the slightest of malty aromas and a taste nowhere near its comparatively high alcohol content. Hopping is gentle and the finish length is just medium. All that said however, there is something about this beer that just says ’qualty’; completely indefinable but it’s there nonetheless. If it wasn’t so strong, I’m sure I could drink it till the cows come home, well at least until they were at the bottom of the street...

ManVsBeer (10453) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 8, 2014
Cask @ Shoulder of Mutton, Hebden Bridge. Slightly hazed yellow coloured ale with a small creamy head. It’s full of tropical fruit character, more so in taste than aroma with a mild bitterness.

dantheman278 (1361) - SCOTLAND - DEC 2, 2012
Cask at Cloisters. Slightly hazy orange pour, thin persistent white head. Slight orange peel, soft musty honey, lightest peppery citrus hop nose. Slight bread sweetness, just a light, slightly suspicious yeasty flavour followed by a soft peppery bittersweet linger. Not too bad.

jamesie1857 (2150) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 9, 2012
On Cask in Litton, Derbyshire - a decent looking pull, took time to clear, but golden with a lasting head. Slight citric note to this, a mellow taste of limes (?) and tropical citrus fruits, with an aroma to match. Good feel to it, and nice aftertaste.
