cask at Lytham Beer Festival.
nice floral nose with elderflower and citrus tones. quite a honey feel in the mouth and on te aftertaste. Lovely yalnikim (800) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 11, 2008
Tasted 12/06/2008. 500ml bottle from Regional Wines and Spirits. From memory last night. Bright copper with a diminishing off-white head. Good lacing. Lovely aroma of rich malt (caramel tending to toffee), light floral esters and an abundance of spicy, fruity hops. A little lemonade note in there is quite pleasant. Simple malt sweetness in the mouth, as expected from the nose, with a quenching hop flavour and medium to strong bitterness. More lemony, spicy notes with a little oily orange in there too. Fairly high meneral character to the water carries the hop character well. Very nice condition for a beer that has come this far. Good work!

Cask at the Trafalgar with Mes, 25th April 2008. Copperish amber colour with a dry hoppy aroma. This is a very drinkable, hoppy ale with just the right weight for a bitter. thebeertourist (5189) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 7, 2008
Bottle. Pale amber with a small head. Faint fruity aroma with some toffee hints. Fruity flavours, ranging from apples to honey and a little bit of toffee, some bitterness towards the finish. Watery. Drinkable. MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 4, 2008

Copper gold with no head. Very green, fresh and grassy aroma with a reasonable matly base. Flavour is more of the same. Slightly sulphuric with a bit of bitterness on the finish. A little on the bland side but drinkable enough.
Bottle @ Porterhouse, London. Pours amber with small off-white head. Aroma floral / sweet / honey. Taste is citrus / honey / caramel. Finish is dry & malty, and a little short. Decent beer all the same. DownsouthGav (601) - Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 9, 2007
UPDATED: FEB 5, 2008 Bottle @ Porterhouse, London. Hoppy and fruity nose with some cream. Pours copper beer with a small head. Taste is honey with muscat and floral hoppiness. Some light carbonation. Soft mouthfeel. Aftertaste is unfortunately short. TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 8, 2007
Pint pulled at the Lister Arms in Malham (Yorkshire), a slight haze to the amber colour with a creamy head. A fruity hop aroma with juicy malt. A smooth malt flavour with some buttery notes followed by a good bitterness in the finish. Maria (10212) - Thisted, DENMARK - APR 4, 2007
Red-golden with a moderate head. The aroma has notes of fruity hops and caramel, and so does the flavour, that has a slightly dry, citrussy finish. It’s a nice ale, that is easy to drink and well balanced. davegore (223) - liverpool, Merseyside, ENGLAND - FEB 16, 2007
500 ml bottle which pours a dark amber with a lasting head. aromas of hops mostly followed with a malty tang. not much to get excited about, nothing really wrong with it just nothing which stands out
