Cask conditioned at The Crafty Crow, Nottingham. Gold to amber with white head. There is a wheaty, dryish note from the start of this one, grainy, dryish bitter. Baked bread malts. Just okay. Mr_Pink_152 (5529) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - SEP 17, 2016

Bottle. Hazy mid brown and gold with a large fluffy foam. Aromas are yeast, wheat and oranges with bubblegum. Some nutty and woody aspects with soapy water. Flavours are dry, dusty yeast with sweet caramel and mellow oranges. Tart citrus with a carbonated, peppery and fruity bitter finish. Not great. slash_1_uk (22) - annesley, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - JAN 4, 2012

Cask, The Victoria, Beeston, 20/05/11. As I so often use it as a descriptor, why not? Orange amber with a creamy white collar. Souring, dangerous apple rhubarb aroma wisping with smoke and vinegar. It works better as a flavour. Honeycombed lace, deep husk in the finish. Sadly no copper penny. Wheat sourness, hops, yeast, wrongness? Hit and miss. Too conditioned for those edgy flavours to be accidental. No idea what this was all about and only had about 3 mins to decide (train to catch, no mobiles allowed). Fuck that. Fair enough if irritating city-types are bellowing egotistically into their handsets, but me studiously tapping away in a corner, in an empty pub, at lunchtime? Love to see the kids behind the bar tell me to put it away. A Blackberry isn’t even technically a mobile phone anyway... (end of rant). Onwards to Leicester, a city that throws its arms open to the 21st century ticker and... and hopefully some more authentic beeridom than Beeston has offered me this afternoon.
