Cask @ JDW, Victoria Station. The pour’s light gold with a tiny white head. The aroma’s of light tropical fruit salad - plenty of pineapple, mango, salty pacific trade wind. Some armpit. The taste is fresh-cut grass, more pineapple and lemon peel. A bit of skunky armpit. Soft, and approachable. The flavors are funky, but would still be welcomed by your typical JDW punter. Light body, fine carbonation. Overall, a fairly flavor beer. Nice stuff. this drinks like a solid APA with training wheels on it.

Nov, 2012. JDW, Gravesend. Pale gold. Soft biscuit malt with juicy sweet citric hops - lovely and refreshing, but not aggressive. A very enjoyable drop. tampierre (1419) - Pilsen, CZECH REPUBLIC - MAR 20, 2013

Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Gold with white head. Not sure what had happened here, you would have thought that all the Festival beers had been used by now. This was ok though, quite fruity, pineapple and melon in character with a hoppy dryness. I quite enjoyed it.

Willow Walk, Victoria 2 Nov 11. JDW festivaløl. Gyldenbrun. Nesten ikke skum. Litt uklar. God plommearoma. Myk munnfølelse. Smaken plommer. Blir tørr & litt syrlig etter hvert. ManVsBeer (10946) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 12, 2012
Has a fruit nose, slightly more malty in its flavour. Golden with a small head. Rune (13494) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 1, 2012
Festival beer, one-third pint at JDWs Willow Walk. Tiny white head, spotty lacing, close to clear amber-gold body. Dry fruity hops to the nose. Wheat, lemon and grapefruits in flavour. Firm bittersweet tail. Decent beverage (London, 02.11.2012). Nocturne (1992) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - NOV 20, 2012
Cask at JDW. Golden colour with a lasting white head. Good use of US hops evident on the nose with lots of grapefruit and tropical notes. Fruity, well-balanced taste with some nice pithy bitterness in the finish. Really drinkable and refreshing. Impressive stuff for sure.
