Cask Dark chestnut; B.C. "H.". Sweet malts, bread, cacao powder. Nice hops!! Sporting an original flavour of holly leaves - appropriate! Ends wry, nearly tart. Dry-out effect! What is this? In the aftertaste, I get acorn, and yet again bitter cacao powder. Light to medium bodied. Nice beer, as light as it may be. oh6gdx (26487) - Vasa, FINLAND - JAN 26, 2015

Im a big fan of this fellow and didnt realise i havnt rated it yet. Cali’s usual style, however slightly sweet in a very nice way, goes down very easily. Going by the name i expected this to be about 6-7% however im not complaining with it being as low as 3.7 as it tastes good. Ethereal (2471) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 31, 2007
Cask at the Windsor Castle, Notting Hill, 30th Dec 2007. Copper with an off-white head that subsides quickly. Hoppy aroma with a hint of liquorice. Taste has a definite herb character at first, then a good refreshing finish. Palate is a bit weak though. Enjoyable and drinkable. dnas2 (705) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - MAY 12, 2008
Cask, Dec 2007. Copper coloured, slightly cloudy, but with a good head. Scents of toffee malts. Carbonated, watery, with lots of sugar present, leaving a sticky mouthfeel. Moderately bitter with a dry end. Hoppy and honey present, but rather disappointingly bland. Served too cold.
