Ruby copper, clear, rich white head, good lacing
Aroma - caramel malts, light fruity malts, soft fruity zest
Taste - Caramel malts, soft zesty hop, bit of spicy peppery hops, some soft toffee, light fruity malts
Palate - soft carb, medium body. Finish as main flavour, nice soft lingering hop bitterness
Overall - As a bitter beer it’s pretty good and quite interesting
[cask at Cloisters, Edinburgh] Orangey golden beer with a nice white head. Orange bitterness on the aroma. More orange on the flavour – alongside a slightly ’burned’ hop flavour. The bitter component comes across as a sharp chestnut flavour, which doesn’t sit exactly right with the bitter hop finish. Almost, but not quite  Fin (10540) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 28, 2012
Cask, gravity at the Real Ale Bar, WOMAD Festival, Wiltshire, Saturday 28th July 2012 Pours reddy/amber in colour with a filmy white head. Dry and bitter, its a furry bitterness, malty with a hard tangy fruity unripe plum skin fruitiness. Good. A6 A3 T7 P3 Ov13 3.2 dantheman278 (1361) - SCOTLAND - JUL 12, 2012
Cask at Cloisters, EIBF 2012. Nice dark yellowy amber, thin creamy head. Nice resinous nose, not "hoppy" but juicy in a different way. Some salted caramel, apricot, some marmalade, grassy hops. Dry juicy flavours, citrus, some marmalade, soft bitter linger. Soft and easy, very nice. Beersiveknown (5284) - NORTHERN IRELAND - JUN 25, 2012
Cask at the Colston Yard, Bristol
A surprisingly balanced and not too heavily bitter pale amber. Some pine resin and citrus pith on the nose. Gentle carbonation, very drinkable.

Beer Festival 2012. Amber colour, small off-white bubbly head. Aroma is fruity, floral, grassy with some mild yeasty and herbal notes. Flavour is fruits, wood, some quite bitter notes as well as earth. Also mild yeastyness.
Cask @ The White Horse. Deep red amber color with a small white head. The nose is light orchard fruits - peaches, cherries, nectarines, cut grass. The taste is tobacco leaf bitter, more peachy orchard fruits. Chalky bitterness. The body is light and smooth. Overall, while crisp, I really didn’t find this all that flavorful. Bristol are better than this! EdKing (2586) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 26, 2012
Cask in White Horse. Light clear copper colour, small white head, not much lacing. Nose is zingy citrous hop, pine, caramel. Taste is sharp pine, hop bitter, and then notes of an English bitter, so lots of caramel, ale fruitiness. Not sure the combo is working. It’s a bit watery in body to carry the new world hop bitterness. BeerViking (4782) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 26, 2012
Cask at Pig’s Ears Richmond, poured a dark copper with a lacy white head, piney hops and some lemon rind on the nose, the palate is hoppy, bitter and a little acrid, but not overly so. There’s a touch of pineappley hop in the mouth plus a long astringent bitter finish. Nice, but a bit lacking in depth. madmitch76 (24806) - , Essex, ENGLAND - APR 15, 2012
