Cask at Derby fest. Soft fruits on the nose, nice fruit flavour with spice. Not bitter enough.
500ml bottle. Slighty unclear golden orange with a difficult to rouse fine later of mostly lasting carbonation. Some stale honeyish sweetness on the nose. Some orange too coming through on the swirl. Things are a bit muddled and distant though. Bit of homebrew kit hop on the tongue with sweet biscuity malt, orange and hints of grain. Perhaps not the best bottle conditioning. Soft and somewhat lifeless with the merest hint of carbonation. Finishes with a short and moderately dry hop bitterness. I’m not knowledgeable about the US hops used but there’s no typical US hop influence. Has promise & I’d imagine it’d better on cask though I’m not sure it’s bottled well.

Cask på Castle, Holborn 4 Okt 10. Lys gylden med litt gulskjær. Uklar. Svakt fruktig aroma. Veldig lavt skum. Plomme & sviskearoma. Smaken er plommer & pærer. Litt tynn syrlig fruktig ettersmak. maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2010
Cask conditioned handpump Royal Blenheim Oxford. A golden coloured beer with an off-white head. A really good hoppy beer. Nice oranges and lemons. Good and tasty in the mouth. The hops really work and the malt backbone is good. A well brewed tasty beer, and what’s more it was free of charge being the last half from the barrel. There were no signs whatsoever though of any potential deterioration.

2nd September 2008. Clear brown beer. Soft palate. Some hops peeping through. Well balanced. Inoffensive. joe19612 (2964) - camberley, Surrey, ENGLAND - OCT 10, 2009
Bottle. Pours a golden colour with a crisp white head. The aroma is all citrus, the taste is also all citrus fruit with a dry sour finish. JoeMcPhee (9427) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 20, 2008
Cask at the Market Porter. Pale amber golden beer. Lightly fruity. Apricot/peach yeastiness over a sweet pale biscuity maltiness. Some light spicy hops and a kiss of fruit and light hoppiness. Faint spiciness. It’s decent but not all that compelling. leaparsons (10613) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2008
Cask. Hazy gold with a small head. Aromas are biscuit malts with nutty, woody notes and some melon fruitiness. Flavours are caramel with dry woody notes. Quite yeasty. OK.
