Cask Pint – JDW Fest Spring 2011 in Mar 2011 - Golden in colour. Fruity; some citrus fruit. Hoppy; grassy hops. Malty; toasty malts, caramel. Good fruit/hop/malt balance. No dominant or assertive trait. Easy drinking. (2011-03-28)

A little hard to be objective, because the Hop Hog is a personal favourite, and this was described to me as "a watered down version" of that. Lightish amber pour and a white head. Aroma is piney, citrus - indeed similar to hop hog but not quite as big up front. Taste is malty, citrus, piney, nice bitter finish. It is a good beer in its own right, very sessionable

Feral Swan Valley Brewery ontap (1-July-2013) Floral light perfumed fruit aroma. Clear amber sheet lacing and decent head. Big chemical herbal veg flavour. Nasty herbal slight sulphur chemical hip finish.

Tap at Feral Brewery. Citrus and pine hop aroma with a light biscuit maltiness. Smells like an elementary version of the hophog. Taste is similar, bit of grassy hops and nice biscuitiness. Medium pale ale styled body. Refreshing, easy going.

On Tap at the feral, This beer as advertised as a low key version of the Hop Hog, however this detracts frm what is a fantastic beer in its own right. The hop profile is all a hop head could ask for but at a sensible gravity that can be enjoed at the begining of the evening. No sense of this beer being the lowly brother (unless you start at the wrong end of the scale).

Well hopped with a dry finish, but wonderful fruity flavours and all-round character.

1L squealer, Pours a very clear pale straw with a sudsy head and a soft doughy biscuit aroma. Slight grassy notes in the flavour as well as the biscuit and lemon notes with a nice bitterness. Has a decent amount of flavour although its nothing to write home about.

tombyars (1702) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - MAR 12, 2012
Tasted this at the Esquire House, Glasgow (JDW) in April 2011. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear pale golden honey in colour with a thin white head. Slight sulphurous note in the short aroma. Thin mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malt gives a fruity base with lychees, elderflower cordial to the fore. Fragrant hop resins give a bitter note but not overpowering. Reminds me of flowers Original. Finish is slightly on the bitter side with tart citrusy fruit evident in the mouth. An ok session bitter.

maneliquor (3514) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 30, 2011
Tap at Feral. Pours a cloudy yellow-orange with a small white head. Mild hops and citrus on the nose. Much the same in the taste. Very easy drinking and flavoursome pale. Good brew
