Had a pint with some baby back ribs. Light copper color with some carbonation and a hoppy aroma. Taste was slightly bitter with some mild fruits. Some bitterness on the finish. imdownthepub (15129) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 26, 2009
UPDATED: SEP 15, 2012 Cask conditioned at Far From the Madding Crowd, Oxford. Orange amber with slight white head. Dry and hoppy and probably very good when fresh, however this was a little flabby and tired, quite thin on the palate.berkshirejohn (6611) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 9, 2008
Re Rated on 14/09/12. Much better than previous, fresher, cleaner hop note, really quite decent.
Cask at the Brewery Tap, Derby. Amber with a thin white head; fruity aroma; dry and biscuity with some orange sweetness; and a sweet finish. Not very exciting. Fin (10820) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 9, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 8, 2008 Cask at The Penderel Oak, JDW, Holborn London. This beer poured a light orange colour and had a very hoppy nose, taste was also quite hoppy and a little fruity with citric notes a little bit sweet as well, but very refreshing and crisp. This was very enjoyable I have to confess, and from a brewery I’ve never encountered before. Cask at The Plantation Arms, Oxford, 06-09-08 Pours mid golden although the light in this pub made determining the colour quite tricky. There was a white head, light fruity beer, quite refreshing and citrussy. MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 7, 2006
A Mes rate: Cask at Baker Street JDW. Very hoppy. Great creamy nose. Orange golden body with a decent head and lace. Its all creamy hops really but jolly good for it. Citric notes as you would expect and a wonderfully clean finish. Good beer.

Albans beer Festival. Malty and on the sweet side to start, but balanced out by some soft aromatic hops. Soft citrus characters. Got touches of berry fruit in here aswell.
Cask (gravity dispense), St Albans Beer Festival 2005 (last day). On a day when most of the bitters were struggling towards the end of their natural, this one stood out. This is a rich mid-copper colour and in good condition. Robust and well-hopped with some US aromatic influence I’d say. Citric tones. Fresh (not a word often used today) and clean, with a dry mouthfeel, sitting mellow in the mouth. Thank heaven for a Welsh brewer who isn’t afraid to use plenty of hops. Nice one.

Cask conditioned - gravity dispense - St Albans BF. A mid brown coloured beer with a good balance of malt and hop in the aroma. The taste is quite dry and fruity. One of those beers which is nice to drink but nothing is outstanding. SilkTork (5800) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - OCT 3, 2005
St Albans. Gravity. Nice. Soft. Subdued. Watery. Some malt. Some hops. Oh. Oh. Oh. harrisoni (19159) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 3, 2005
Cask (gravity dispense), St Albans Beer Festival 2005. Russet colour. Bit cloudy with bubbly beige head. Good hop nose. Cascade hop flavour with some chocolate. Very good beer with hoppy/choc finish. Some orangey citrus
