From cask at Market porter. Pours clear and golden orange with a small white head. Aroma is mild citrusy and sligh peachy. Smooth fruity and crisp citrusy. Bitter and slight citrusy. Ends dry and bitter.

The aroma is lovely of oranges and aroma hops. The color is orange and it has no head. The flavor is lightly sweet in the beginning, watery in the middle, but with a good bitter end combined with notes of grass and oil. A very nice beer.

[email protected] Golden colour, small head. Aroma is hoppy, fruity and quite grassy. Flavour is grassy, grainy, toffeeish and also has some mild sour wooden notes. Wood and rotten fruits in the rather longlasting bitterish finish.

23rd April 2010. On tap at the Rake. Clear gold beer. No head. Low carbonation. Dry palate. Fresh fruity grapefruit and a dash of orange. Finishes dry. Standard stuff but it’s okay!

harrisoni (19548) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 2, 2007
Cask gravity at Kent BF. Gold, bubbly white head. Bit yeasty on aroma. Some citrus hops. It’s a fairly standard citrusy bitter. Fine, if not outstanding.

Oakes (19426) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 22, 2002
Amber; fruity, good foresty hops; slight toastiness. Interesting bottled English ale.
