Cask (handpump) at the Piccadilly Tavern, Manchester on 18 January 2017. Mini rating as I have more extensive notes in the backlog (27/07/2011 & 27/07/2015 - to be entered in due course). Adnams best regular beer in my view and Im always happy to grab a glass of this when theres nothing more esoteric on offer. Rich golden amber colour. Theres a solid New World hop aromatic/tropical fruit character but its backed up with a firm tangy bitterness and a biscuity malt base. A tasty drop.

Graham77 (514) - SCOTLAND - OCT 10, 2016
Cask. Clear amber colour with a decent off white head. Pleasant caramel and citrus aroma. Taste is light-medium sweet and light-medium bitter. Soft carbonation. Pleasant, well balanced, refreshing and (bearing in mind the moderate abv) satisfying. An excellent modern session bitter.

Echon (515) - rhus, DENMARK - SEP 30, 2016
Amber. Good citrusy hop aroma. Somewhat dry taste with moderately bitter finish. Decent hoppy flavour. Overall, not decent but not really my kind of beer. Aroma and flavour are good, but the lack of carbonation is a major detraction.

Cask at Anglers Arms, Northumberland. Amber colour with a white foam head leaving lots of lacing. Nose of zesty citrus hops. Taste is malty, caramel with floral citrus hoppy bitterness. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, dry lingering citrusy bitter finish. Quite drinkable.

klm1 (1461) - Bled/SF, - AUG 26, 2016
UPDATED: FEB 8, 2017 Pours golden color, with tan white head. Aroma: citruses, pine, some bread notes in the background. Flavor is very similar: bread like malt backbone, supported with hop flavor, which takes on citruses, pine. Hop bitterness is medium to high, and lingers in aftertaste. Body is light to medium, texture is soft. carbonation is medium.
