Cask (handpump) at the King William IV, Leyton on 6 April 2012. Hazy straw colour. Appealing floral hop aroma. Quite slick mouthfeel. Loads of good tangy hops on the palate. Quite resinous. Excellent drinking.

Cask conditioned at The Cross Keys, Covent Garden, London. Hazed gold with white head. The beer was fairly opaque, but there was a hoppy fruity aroma that promised much. The actual flavour didn’t quite live up to this, but there was a bitter sweet element, some tropical fruits, orange and a herby note. A pretty decent beer but not totally convinced with the condition. sunevdj (4087) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - JUN 18, 2013

Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Poured a hazy light amber with a frothy white head. The aroma is grass and nettle leading to a medium bitter flavour with some grassy nettle hops, Brett yeast (Kermis convinced me) on the smooth bitter refreshing palate. Great on a hot day. jjsint (3110) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - AUG 29, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 27, 2015 Cask at the Cross Keys, Covent Garden. Golden, clear with a bit of wispy head from the natural carbonation. Luscious scent if tropical fruit and lemongrass. Taste is bitter but not too much so. Slight notes of pear, woodsmoke and soap, but the latter clears in the clean dry finish. A fantastic cask beer.

September 24, 2015 - at The Old Coffee House (Soho) - Handpull cask pint - 11:15 a.m. and don’t judge me I’m on vacation! Bright deep gold with a nice off-white mottled lasting head. Smells great - heather and honey but fresh clover and redolent with an overlay of cannabis pungency - terrific, if a bit light overall. Taste follows - a bit more sweetness and less clover and bitterness - nice; chewy, airy, enough hops in it to finish with some astringency, grapefruit pith and more cat in the aftertaste. tkrjukoff (4335) - SWEDEN - MAY 16, 2012
