On cask at Wetherspoon Stansted. Great beer, tastes like a salad of hops. Aromas of honey, caramel, pine, and orange. Taste is sweet and bitter, with a long lingering finish. Palate is silky, and medium bodied. Cloudy yellow, with a thin head.

Crosse Keys Spoons. Hazy gold beer. Residual white head. Smooth palate, semi dry. Fairly low carbonation. Sweetish hops. Peach, tangerine, tropical fruits, grapefruit, even a little Sorachi Ace lemon flavour. A really nice medley! Finishes semi dry. Lip smacking hops. With some condition this would have been an easy 4+

niquillis (2752) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - APR 6, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 10, 2013 On cask at The Congress, Longton. Pours amber, fruity aroma. Fruit, caramel and a hint of smoke. Cask is obviously better than bottle, it tastes nothing like lager as others have said it does. 2nd very good English pale ale of the week. Update 9/6/13, on cask at The Huntsman, Cheadle. Good stuff again. Still nothing like lager!

harrisoni (18578) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 15, 2011
Cask handpull at Baker Street Spoons. Gold depp slight haze lasting thin sparse white head. Quite a fruity strong golden ale. Stone fruits. Not in great nick but acceptable. Alcohol is quite well hidden but there is a touch of syrup. Its got decent hops on finish. For once I agree with Ken that this is one of the better festival beers. Fruit and malt on aroma. Good full beer.

Have had two of these. One at Thomas Sheraton Stockton which was superb almost Marble Dobber standard. One at Boston Wetherspoons which was less so but still good, hence an average of the two ratings above.

tommann (3754) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 25, 2012
500ml bottle at 5.5%. Pours dark gold with a large head. Aroma is mango puree and banana. Taste has mango puree to start and a mango and grassy medium bitter finish.

BigWojt (41) - Bydgoszcz, POLAND - FEB 21, 2017
Aromat kwiatowy, miodowy, mocno ziołowy. Barwa jasnozłota, piwo klarowne. Piana trwała. W smaku lekki karmel, zioła i bardzo mocna goryczka pozostająca na języku. Jak na angielski styl sporo się udało z niego wyciągnąć.

3.5
Bullit (4637) - Burgos, SPAIN - OCT 15, 2011
Cask @ Counting House, JDW. Spoons Real Ale Festival autumn 2011. Hazy golden colour, off-white head. Nose is lemon, grapefruit, peach. Flavour is light malted, peach, very fruity, bit of sourness. Medium bodied. Decent enough.

berkshirejohn (6502) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 21, 2011
UPDATED: OCT 10, 2012 Cask at the Greyhound (JDW), Maidenhead. Golden amber with a thin white head; fruity aroma; rich tropical fruit flavour with some chewy malts; then a long, building, bitterness leaving a sweet digestive biscuit finish. Deceptively easy to drink.(7/4/7/4/15=3.7, 10/21/2011)

50cl bottle from the Sainsbury’s Beer Hunt range at 5.5% ABV. Amber with a billowing white head that slowly settles; rich malty aroma with some grassy hops; thick in the mouth with an almost meaty flavour and perhaps some tropical fruit;; and a dry biscuity finish with a slight zing. (6/4/7/3/13=3.3, 10/10/2012)
