Cask at the 10th Colchester Winter Beer Festival. Pours clear bright light golden with a small bubbly white head. Aroma of caramel, light fruit and hop. Light to medium sweetness and medium bitterness. Light body and slightly oily texture, carbonation is soft. Very nice. FatPhil (16631) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 3, 2017

Sweet, a bit wooly, aroma. Pale straw. Some wooly aspects in the taste too. Finish wooly too. Ah, whatever, it may have not been intended to be like that, but I liked the wool.
Cask at Fat Cat, Colchester. It pours clear golden with a small white head. The aroma is simple, straw, mild sweetness, stone fruit, apricot and persimmon. The taste is crisp, restrained bitterness, straw, apricot, persimmon and pale malt with a dry finish. Light body and limited carbonation. Classic low hop, malt - forward gold... So lacks some flavour. Idiosynkrasie (7711) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - OCT 23, 2015
500ml bottle. Minimally cloudy, yellow-ish, pale golden colour with average, thick, frothy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, snow-white head. (Asian) spicy and citrusy hoppy aroma, hints of lemon, lemongrass, and - strangely enough - yellow curry, and plum wine, a touch of brett. Taste is somehow diluted bretty, hints of hay and apricot. Very unusual, if intentional. jmgreenuk (9696) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - DEC 1, 2013
Cask at The Ale House, Colchester. Poured a crystal clear light amber with a bubbly white head. The aroma is weak malt. The flavour is medium bitter with a malt hop varnish bitter palate and a long bitter finish. Medium bodied with flat carbonation. I’m not sure what hops were used but they took some getting used to!

BC round the in-laws, 14/07/12. Cloudy pale gold with a spotted skim of suds. English apple; juvenile Orval-like horse, gooseberry aroma. Attractive, yeasty, hop-bitter and drying beer with an underlying sprinkle of biscuit. Some grassiness; a hint of nuts. Rustic and quite harsh. Decent. mr_h (5714) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - APR 2, 2012
