Pours a very pale colour, almost lager like in appearance, light and hoppy, but a bit stale on the palate imdownthepub (15137) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 7, 2013
Cask conditioned at Far From the Madding Crowd, Oxford. Gold with white head. There is a light, biscuity malt in this carrying a juicy, lemon hop note, rather like a souped up Saaz note. Good bitterness and reasonable depth of flavour, there is a light, not unpleasant tart note to finish off. Decent. TheCametron (2480) - CZECH REPUBLIC - MAY 21, 2012
Cask at Cloisters. Golden with a white head. Lemony hop aroma. Grapefruit and lemon hoppy bitterness. Light caramel malt with a dry finish. Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 19, 2012
On cask at Cloisters. Pours a blonde colour with a thick white head. Aroma of pine, pineapple, yeast and caramel. A slightly vegetal cabbage quality also. Similar flavours with moderate carbonation and a foamy mouth-feel. Nicely bitter.

Cask Handpump at the Briton’s Protection, Manchester 22/01/2011
Floral hop aroma. Clear golden coloured hoppy and floral with a citrus flavour. A hint of dryness and bitterness in a malt finish. DougShoemaker (3146) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 1, 2010
Aroma was mild floral and malt, light golden, tiny white head. Flavour is light malt, slight pressence of hops. Light bodied, well balanced, sweet, juicy and refreshing. Quite nice. MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 9, 2009
A Mes rate. Gravicask at the Junction Tavern.ladnewton (2016) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 17, 2009
Perfectly clean yellow gold and guess what? No head what so ever. Bloody useless Junction. Big assertive lemon sherbet hops all round. Very little else going on but damn this is good. It’s approaching Hophead territory. Juicy as hell but dry and bitter with just a pinch of sourness. Excellent faint lick of pale malt in the finish to add just a touch of balancing sweetness to all the bitter lemon. Bloody excellent. If the Junction could manage to squeeze some f**king condition into there beers this would be up there with the very best. As it is, in this condition, I’ll have to stick with bloody excellent.
Cask at the Live & Let Live, Cambridge, England on 15th August 2009. This review refers to the 4.4% version of this ale, known as "Pretoria". Gold with lasting off-white foamy head. A little initial yeastiness (earth) followed by a refreshingly crisp hoppiness making the beer more-ish. A dry bitter finish on a slightly textured mouthfeel afforded by good condition. A delicious session ale.
