Theydon_Bois (20462) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, - JAN 23, 2014
Cask at the Old Coffee House, 21/01/14. Lightly hazed golden with a moderate off white covering. Nose is bitter orange, light earthy hop notes, bread dough, straw, lemon sherbet. Taste comprises orange pith, lemon tang, hint of pineapple, straw, earthy hops. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi-drying closure with grass lead bitterness. Solid GB with a good hop presence for the style.

Cask Pint at Cross Keys, Covent Garden, London in Mar 2011 - Very Pale Straw in colour. Hoppy; piney, resinous and grassy hops. Fruity; bitter citrus grapefruit and lemon. Malty;. Very very bitter grapefruit citrus throughout. Very drinkable. Nice Beer! (2011-03-02)

JorgeLee (2194) - Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 19, 2016
Cask, Old Coffee House. Golden colour, white head, good lacing. Clearly hop dominant, fruity Amarillo citrus orange hint of something sharper, hint of something more tropical. Slightly oily mouthfeel, hint of resin, then long dry bitter finish. Superb, a lovely reminder of how good 4% beer on cask can and should be.

Stuu666 (14563) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 14, 2016
Cask at cloisters. Pours clear golden, nose is floral, peach, orange, taste is odd, funky fruit and a bit of custard.

Towey1989 (3165) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 7, 2016
Cask at The Hop Inn, Newcastle-Under-Lyme. A clear straw colour with a thin white head. Aroma of grapefruit, some orange, slight melon, a little straw and subtle floral hops. Taste of sweet orange, some grapefruit, slight melon, a little straw and subtle spicy, floral hops. Light bodied and a slight oily texture. A dry, orangey, floral hop bitterness in the finish. This is a hoppy pale ale done right. A great Amarillo hop aroma and flavours, well balanced. Tasty.

Garrold (5515) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 12, 2015
Cask. Shakespeare’s, Sheffield. Clear, straw colour. Bubbly, white head. Beautifully fresh, Amarillo hop, with a clean, grainy malt. That’s it. Nowt left to say.

DSG (15119) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAR 16, 2015
[3/4/15] Cask at Cross Keys in London. Clear golden. Fruity hops aroma with a buttery note. Flavor has mild sweetness with a buttery hint, fruity hops and a bitterish finish. Some diacetyl, but still decent and refreshing.

Scopey (15476) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 18, 2015
Cask at Old Coffee House. It pours clear golden with a thick white head. The nose is sweet tropical fruits, piss, straw and soft doughy malt. The taste is crisp, bitter, grapefruit, orange rind, lemony sherbet, pepper, straw, pissy, resin and earth with a dry finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Good hoppy blonde stuff. Sessionable fo sho.

Spc (6) - - JAN 17, 2014 does not count
Nose : mineral then farmyard funk - interesting Palate: Mature cheddar pineapple delicious sour grip on the back end. Classic Brodies

Niall73 (2434) - Ontario, CANADA - JAN 7, 2014
Cask at the old coffee shop, soho. Pours a slight hazy pale straw colour with a white head. Aroma is light, slightly tropical, funky and pissy. Lightly body, light carbonation. Some veg and general savory foodiness, grass, lemon, leaves, a touch of candy and some grapefruit. Decent. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
