UPDATED: SEP 8, 2010 Feb, 2004 Gravity @ The Bummer Beer Festival. Pale malt slightly greasy aroma, some old socks, varnish and the vaguest hint of possibly a rumour of some citric hops. Taste is foul! Metallic and rough. Some earthy hops, but way too rough to be drunk. Dreadful. I’ve thrown my rattle out of the cot so many times now, people are moving away from me in droves.

Aug, 2010 JDW, Rochester. Very drinkable. Fresh hoppiness - nettles and tree bark. Bitter, but not rough or aggressive. Mild, juicy malt. Good combination. Yes! [4.4]
Cask gravity Notts BF 05. Golden beer with white lasting head. Along the lines of Darkstar Hophead and JHB. Grapefruit and tangerine citrus, acidic in mouth with drying hoppy citric finish. Mmmmm Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 21, 2012
On cask at The Bank House. Pours a golden colour with a fair white head. Aroma of lemon, pineapple and passion fruit. Similar flavours and nicely bitter with a dry finish. Mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. mr_h (5535) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - APR 23, 2014
Cask by gravity at Paisley Beer Festival 2014 - clear pale golden, very thin bubbly head, pale malty aroma, negligible lacing, sweet, biscuit, mild grapefruit, very easy to drink, excellent session ale imdownthepub (14554) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 26, 2004
Cask Conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Pale yellow amber with bubbly head. Uncomprimisingly hoppy, dry but refreshing too, light on the tongue but leaving a green hop note. Sharp and juicy, a rather pleasant lunchtime pint

Cask @ Sir John Stirling Maxwell. Aroma of hops, citrus & tropical fruits. Rich golden colour. Dry citrus fruit and hop flavour. A solid blond ale. DanielBrown (4502) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 28, 2012
Gravity at Birmingham Beer Festival 2012. A lovely Golden. Nice flavour, balance etc. The live music on the upper floor is, by this point, utterly excreble. Benzai (15608) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 17, 2016
Sampled @ GBBF Day 2. Clear yellow color, average sized white head. Smell and taste malts, decently hoppy, nice tropical fruit influences, nice fruity hop bitter. Another fine beer. Decent body and carbonation. chriso (7533) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 13, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 2, 2014 There is a rather off-putting sweaty sock edge in the aroma, but, once you get over that, I found this a drinkable but uninspiring session bitter. The name must contravene the Trades Descriptions Act as the hop accents were muted at best. Not properly conditioned in my view, so it needs another tasting.

Re-rate: Cask (handpump) at the Trent Bridge Inn, Nottingham on 14 October 2014. I see I said I needed to re-rate this back in 2004. Better late than never. Gold and in good shape. Fresh and citric, with leafy hop notes too. Very tasty and enjoyable.
