Can, 330 ml, from an offie in Ambleside. Pours clear amber with minimal head and lots of small carbonation bubbles. Tiny bit of patchy lacing. Sweet and heavy on the nose with strong caramel malt, caramelised pineapple and citrus notes up front, with some forest hints behind alongside spices and maybe pepper. Slight tangy vinegar edge to the whole thing, which is a shame. Taste is moderately sweet and fresh with prominent orange and grapefruit followed up by biscuity malt and mild lingering bitterness in the very dry finish. None of that vinegar from before thankfully. Carbonation is moderately strong so this is a bit of a tingler on the palate and the medium body and sticky texture means this hangs around for a while.
(I should note that the best before date on is listed as "May 17" on the can - I’m not sure whether this means may 2017 or may 17th of this year so I could be reviewing a beer past its’ sell-by here, which might explain the aforementioned vinegar on the nose.)

Bottle, Tebay Services, M6. Amber pour with a middling white head. Fruity, hoppy nose and flavour alongside notes of caramel, biscuit, wood and malts. Perfectly drinkable if veering towards the uninspiring corner of the dancehall. mR_fr0g (12068) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 8, 2015
Cask at the brewpub. Clear light orange golden coloured pour with a thin white head. Aroma is odd damp hay, spicy pepper, earthy hedgerow berry and a hint of caramel. Flavour is composed of sweet and tangy orange rind, little hay, caramel, tangy lemon citrus. Palate is quite sweet, tangy, lowish carbonation. A little rough round the edges. Lingering damp hay.
