Cask @Northampton Beer Festival, 2009. Golden beer with a lightly hopped and caramel aroma. The flavour is dry, caramel and hopped. Overall a nice hopped beer.

leaparsons (10802) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - APR 7, 2008
Bottle. Golden and bright with a small white head. Aromas are biscuit malts with lots of sweet hops. Quite lager-like with some addictive saltiness. Flavours are biscuit malts with peppery, spicy hops. Has a good fruity bitterness. Dry on the finish. A decent crisp bottle conditioned ale.

jehoey (765) - Shippensburg, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 1, 2006
Cask at the Maltings 14th Annual Beer Festival, York: Lovely aroms of citus, earthy and dusty hops. Loads of good grapefruit and citrus flavors. Nice balance with the pale malt, but this beer definitely show off the hops more. Bitter as you finish. Beautiful lacing. Medium Palate. Yummy brew
