4.0% Cask gravity at Planet Thanet BF 2015. Reddish brown clear beer no head. Getting to the end of the barrel in terms of condition but the flavour us fine. A little appley to start then orchard fruity malt flavour. Some hop on finish. Not very bitter pretty flat condition. Would have scored higher in better touch.

prawlie (1702) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 28, 2013
Pint at the Old Manor in Bracknell. Creamy, bubbly head over a dark red beer. Very smooth, dry aftertaste, floral hops, but disappointing. Creamy light chocolate aroma, but very faint. Wouldn’t bother with it again.

Bronze in colour and maintains a good head, but has very little character elsewhere.

justm (165) - Essex, ENGLAND - MAR 22, 2012
Cask at Blue Boar, Billericay. Pours a chestnut brown with an amber edge and a gentle off-white head. Aroma is very subtle, slightly floral and malty but very faint. It runs rather nicely over the palate however. Tropical fruit flavours shine then collapse quickly into a dry coarse bitterness which also doesn’t hang around for long. The merest of aftertastes leaves you pondering what it actually tasted like and so draws you in to another sip. A firework of a beer that flares, fades, then leaves you wondering whether it was really there in the first place.

3.2
Benjii (3050) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 8, 2012
On cask at Cloisters. Pours a brown colour with a thick white head. A musty yeast and caramel aroma with similar flavours. A little lemon to finish. Moderate carbonation.
