bottle at home ... copper ... thin lacing ... light fruity nose ... soft toffee malt ... light bitter ... light fruity plum ... standard. Vladivostok (490) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUN 6, 2010
Bottle conditioned from Kelmscott Manor. Aroma of malt, probably crystal. Mid-brown with a good body and cheek-suckingly bitter. Hard and uncompromising - a bit like say, St. Austell Tinner’s. A competent ale but perhaps not to my taste. Ungstrup (38152) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 4, 2010
Cask at Smithfield Hotel, Manchester. A hazy amber beer with a lazing beige head. The aroma has notes of malt anc citrus. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, caramel, bread, and citrus, leading to a dry and bitter finish. Alphadelic (2249) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 7, 2009
Bottle Conditioned from the brewpub:
A pretty dry little beer actually. Excellent hoppage. Light little maltiness there but it is really all about that citric bite and deep dryness down there in the throat. Yeah boy.

Flavour had some orange citrus, a touch more sweetness and a big, bitter finish. Good stuff. anders37 (26845) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUN 7, 2009

UPDATED: JUL 25, 2010 Cask, Gravity at Banbury Beer Festival, Oxon, 07-05-09 Pours mid amber and in really lovely condition with a great little white bubbly head atop. The aroma is pure ’brewing day at the brewery’ types smells marvellous stuff. Taste is crisp and steady on the bitterness front. The bitterness and grapefruit that come through in this beer really linger and bite at yer’, great stuff.
