On tap at the Rake. Semi dry crispy palate. Light malt provides a mild base for some fresh hops - grapefruit and a little orange. Fresh! Mild bitter aftertaste.

sm89walt (2073) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - NOV 25, 2010
Cask - Cask Pub & Kitchen, London. Poured a clear orange with a fading small white head leaving a light lacing. Pleasant floral, green hop and zesty lemon aromas. Bit of sulphur on the tongue and some apple. Also quite yeasty and dry with a lemony bite and an OK grassy, citric finish. Light body, medium carbonation with a short to medium length finish.

planky84 (3345) - Lee, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 20, 2010
On cask at the Cask, Pub and Kitchen. Bright yellow pour with a white head. Sulphurous nose. Citrus, malts and pine aromas. Citrus, biscuit and vanilla flavours. Sweet, hoppy finish. Straightforward stuff.

Fin (10743) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 15, 2010
Cask handpump at The Cask & Kitchen, Pimlico, London Sat’ 13th November 2010 Pours gold with thin white head. Little bit of sulphur noted also. After the Dark Star this is quite thin in the mouth however its far from bad it just makes you realise that Wild Hops are not a patch on their cultivated cousins when it comes to flavour and aroma. .

Leighton (21879) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 12, 2010
Cask at CPK. Pours clear, light gold with a mild, white head. Grassy hops and light, bready malts in the nose. Lightly sweet flavor, with plenty of hay and grass bitterness. Light bodied with fine carbonation. There are some lingering hay and straw bitters in the finish. Good.

DruncanVeasey (8260) - Nr NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - NOV 9, 2010
Cask handpull, The Golden Eagle, Lincoln, as ’Wild Hop Firkin’. Bright gold with a fine nitro-like collar. Creamy soft and shot through with an odd, woodsy dankness unusual in a golden ale- elder, apparently. Creamy vanilla afters. A bit weird.

harrisoni (19024) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 29, 2009
Cask handpull at The New Wheatsheaf, Borough on Kook crawl. Gold colour thin white head. OK citrus peach golden ale. Not much hop on finish. It’s ok, but disappointing for Crouch Vale.

3.2
MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 21, 2009
A Mes rate. Cask at the Wheatsheaf during Kook crawl.
Cleanish gold with a thin white head. Extremely floral on the nose. Nice and fruity in the mouth. Lemon and sulphur and not much else. Rather run off the mill for a Crouch Vale but nothing offensive.

2.7
bobinlondon (1297) - Harrow, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 12, 2008
Handpulled cask at the Watford beer fest. Gold with a white head.. Fairly sweet and malty with little wildness in the hop department.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 30, 2008
Cask at Wellington Arms, Bedford. Very pale gold with a small white head. Strawy stables aroma with some citrus developing. Sweet biscuity taste with some peach or apricot fruitiness. Slight bitterness.
