Backlog rating from RBESG 2008, grand tasting: Cloudy yellow, creamy head. Pine nose. Orangepeel, citruspeel. Light body. BeardedAvenger (1035) - Addlestone, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUN 23, 2017
Bottle from Co-op, Chobham. Sharp floral, citrus and grass aroma. Cooked veg too. Bright gold. The bubbly white head soon fades away. Light bitter. Umami, slightly peppery, finish. Light-medium bodied. Slick. Lazy soft carbonation. Abrupt finish. Pretty bland. I guess it does have some spiciness to it which gives it a bit of dimension. john44 (3331) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 5, 2017

The_Osprey (8700) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 19, 2015
Cask at The Cricketer’s, Richmond. Hand-written label. Dark orange, still, a little hazy, small scummy off-white head, dotted lacing. Aroma is brown bread, burnt seeds, ash. Body is medium, watery, low carbonation. Taste has more burnt seeds, dry hazelnut skins, watery plum and fruit n barley squash. Soft varnishy astringency with some spice and salt in the finish. Old-school stuff. Quite nice. Different to what I was expecting - I’ll just have to trust that the staff labelled the pump correctly! GuideDogSaint (1718) - Xiamen, CHINA - JUL 5, 2015
Cask at the Assembly Rooms, Epsom. Pours golden with a thin white head. Aroma of hops and fruit with sulphur. Bittersweet finish.

(Cask at Gallows Bird Magna Carta Real Ale Festival 2015) The beer poured pale golden and clear. Its head was small and white. Aroma had fruitiness and sweetness. Palate was medium bodied with low carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, malts, earth, sweetness and bitterness. Aftertaste was hoppy and bitter. A nice brew but flavours were a bit too thin. niquillis (2752) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 10, 2015

Cask at the Kings Tun JDW, golden with a loose white head, aromas of dusty pale malt and a little floral and citrus hop. Dry and crisp, initially a little watery but filling out in the mouth with a spicy peach maltiness.
