imdownthepub (14313) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 21, 2014
Bottled, 500ml from West Country Ales, Cheddar, Somerset. Gold with white head. There is a perfumed, pine like aroma when opening this, this leads into quite an astringent note on the first tasting, flowery, resinous. There isnt a great deal of depth but the flavours improve and mellow through the beer ending quite reasonably.

ladnewton (1927) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 26, 2013
LIVE RATING: Bottle at home on 26th December 2013 - Christmas gift. Pours hazy gold with spot-lacing off-white foam. Fine grapefruit aroma with delicate spices. Deliciously grassy, fruity liquid with notes of lemon zest and spices. Hoppy finish with grassiness and savoury touch. Zingy mouthfeel and fair amount of body. Exquisite. Delicious, well-crafted ale. I recommend pairing with brie and biscuits. Really worked well together.

a_cross (639) - Poole, Dorset, ENGLAND - MAY 23, 2013
Bottle; pale yellow, meagre white head; aroma is vanilla, oddly similar to their iBeer; the flavour has the same woody/leafy off character too; on the plus side, theres plenty of hops and a fairly aggressive bitter finish; of the three beers I picked up from Oddbins sadly only the Monkey IPA gets a thumbs-up from me.
