DanielBrown (4408) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 19, 2004
Bottle from Waitrose, Marlborough, Wilts. Very nice beer. Poured a thickish looking hazy orange, with a little head. Fresh and fizzy on the tongue, with a citrus blast giving way to a delicious bundle of hops in the middle - tangy. Things get slightly watered down on the finish, but this is still an above average hoppy brew.

MartinKubert (862) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 29, 2004
Very nice apricot aroma. Slightly alcoholic, though. Very watery start. Some smooth butter in middle. Quite bitter finish. Watery and weak palate. Amber colour and low carbonation.

Frothy sticky head from the cask at Wenlock Arms. Nice. Substantial hop character with a clean crisp palate. This was the best of the rounds at Wenlock.

YogiBeera (2570) - New Jersey, USA - FEB 16, 2004
Cask Conditioned, at the Wenlock Arms, London. Oh what a night :) Little foamy head. Hoppy mild nose. Fruity taste, wholehearted, likely to drink, with a long lasting dry hoppy finish.
