harrisoni (18214) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 4, 2009
Cask handpull at The Hope Tap, JDW, Reading. Paleish gold, thick creeam head. Nettle hop blond beer. Quite harsh on finish. Its an ok slightly sweaty beer, but very bitter hoppy finish, especially for the ABV, quite spicy.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 29, 2009
Cask at Spoons, Milton Keynes, in Spoons Real Ale Festival. Gold with a large white head. He had to coax this one out; the very dregs of the cask, and not surprisingly a bit warm. He was reluctant to serve it to me. Please, I begged. Im a ticker. Probably some floral hop in the aroma, but the large head didnt help. Taste is oily grapefruit. A sharp bitter finish.

Cask-conditioned at the Edgar Wallace, London 3/7/08. Pale amber with a decent white head that left plenty of lacing. Citrus hop aroma with a touch of summer fruit. Flavour had some grapefruit, elderflowers and a decent dry finish. Good.

FatPhil (15798) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 13, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 19, 2008 Cask. Amber colour, little head. Grapefruit/lemon citrus hops. Taste to match - crisp, very hoppy and refreshing. Very nice, but a bit of a one-trick pony.

Svesse (8454) - Hsselby, SWEDEN - AUG 23, 2006
(Cask at Market Porter, Borough, London, 31 July) Colour is pale amber with frothy head. Nose is fruity with grapefruit, lemon and a distinct citrussy hop aroma. Taste is fruity with grapefruit and lemon, seriously hoppy with a slightly soapy character. Long, hoppy finish. Rather single-tracked and not really complex, but a hop heads delight. Excellent!

TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 16, 2005
Pint pulled at The George in London Bridge, a golden amber with a thick and creamy medium-sized head. Aroma is a strong bouquet of citrus hops. The front of the mouth is hit with a very nice taste of fruits, but there is maybe too much bitterness from the hops.
