As BestivAle @ Camp Bestival, Dorset Decent enough brew, nothing out of the ordinary. I think ’a palate of...vanilla’ might be stretching it somewhat! Nevertheless good tang of citrus and lovely bread/toast backbone.

Cask conditioned – handpump – GBBF. A copper coloured bitter with some citric hop in the aroma, but also a sweetish undertone. The taste is crunchy and malty. Some cracker notes and a touch of late sweetness. Quite nice.

jmgreenuk (9985) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - FEB 28, 2013
Cask at the Craven Arms, Birmingham. Poured a clear amber with a thin bubbly white head. The aroma is malty, but weak. The flavour is weak bitter, a little malty and some citrus hints. A very agreeable and drinkable session beer but I would prefer a little more bitterness if i’m honest.

hohops (1096) - Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 27, 2014
Orangey amber in colour, a small white head. Hoppy notes in the aroma, a bit of citrus there as well. Taste is fresh and a bit floral, hop bitterness, quite a lingering finish. Pretty good.

Scopey (15704) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 25, 2014
Bottle at the the Waterfront Inn, Shanklin during the IoW Jolly. It pours clear amber with a small white head. The nose is earthy, toasty, wood, grain, caramel and dirt. The taste is bitter, toasted grain, brown bread, citrus peel and grass with a dry finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Not bad.
