Cask at that ex bank pub, october 07. Shinny copper color with a small white head. Restrained aroma with somee shy fruity notes. Fruity flavor and a restrained tea-hops note. Some very slight vinous notes. Multilayereed and nice. Medium to full mouthfeel, malty prescence and a fruity aftertaste. Nice, fruity, malty bitter. Daredevil (76) - Bern, SWITZERLAND - NOV 26, 2007
had this one to go with a lunch in a City pub .... the food (battered cod and chips) wasn’t worth the mention, however the brew was .... a medium to full bodied strongly flavored ale, with quite strong bitterness ... quite strong in alcohol too, which you will not feel while drinking, perhaps afterwards ... rudolf (2360) - Buffalo, New York, USA - OCT 29, 2007

On cask at Volo , CanadaGregClow (3402) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 27, 2007
Appearance :Fine haze, copper like ale , medium light porous top.3-
Citric front, grassy zest with fruity end..
Flavour/Palate : Mild, clean ale with hint of spice. Very smooth, palatable, soft clean malt work. Citric hop notes at edges. True session brew. Highly recommended bitter.
Cask at Volo Cask Days 2007. (And also at Volo back in the spring, although I somehow forgot to rate it then...) Hazy orange colour with a faint head. Aroma is floral and herbal, with some fruity malt and a hint of tea. Flavour follows the aroma pretty closely, with some citrus coming through in the finish. Like the cask version of the Pride, this is a great session ale, albeit a slightly stronger one.

Cask at ’Volo Cask Days ’07’. Pours a cloudy amber-orange with a spare lasting bubbly white head. Nice aroma of fruit, floral hops and a hint of spices. Flavour’s also fruity along with some mild hops, some toastiness, a hint of spices and a decent bitter finish. Average bodied. Refreshing and easy to drink.

Cask. At Volo Casks Days ’07. How the HELL did I not have this when I was in England?!!! Ah well ... Clear amber pour, avearge frothy head. Pretty typical dry floral hop aroma backed with slightly tangy light malt ... a little tea-like and fruity, like most decent ESBs (almost a 7, but I was grumpy). The taste followed - light, more or less flat, mildly orange-pekoe hop bitter and light gently toasted malt backing .... nothing spectabular, but solid, and in decent shape - a good maintenance beer in the middle of a tasting session with double IPAs and Peche Mortel on offer .... beergut111 (210) - Berlin, GERMANY - OCT 23, 2007
Volo Cask Days 2007. Props to Volo for getting this. Had to have a few of to apprectiate it (hard to taste anything after all the hopocalypse). Fruit flavour (raisins?) and mildly hoppy throughout. Good stuff Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 22, 2007
Volo Cask Days 2007. Kudo’s to Volo for bringing casks of Fullers over! Really fruity aroma, with dry hops - unique and nice. Taste is malt, lots of citrus, appreciable bitterness. Complex and satisfying yet refreshing. It has been over 10 years since I have had this - I was pretty happy to get reacquainted! jercraigs (11071) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 21, 2007
Cask @ Volo Cask Days 2007, Toronto. Rich amber body with just bubbles for a head. Must hop aroma, floral fruit notes in the aroma. Moderate bitterness throughout, odd fruity tang is pleasant but a bit strange. Light earthy hops throughout. Average palate. Pleasant session brew, but a bit underwhelming.
