sm89walt (2011) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUN 27, 2009
Cask - Fat Cat, Norwich. Clear amber, lasting white head of medium thickness and density. Ginger aromas with a malty sweet spine. A good combination of ginger in the forefront and lemon in the finish with a slight hint of grassiness. The palate texture was fine but the finish was disappointingly short with ginger in the aftertaste.

Bottle from Beers of Europe. Hazy, deep golden with a big off-white head. Fruity hop aroma with noticeable lemon notes. Refreshing lemony flavours balanced by dry spiciness and hops. Ginger kicks in towards the finish. Advanced summer ale.

50 cL bottle, courtesy of fonefan. Pours cloudy yellow with a diminished white head. Mild brett aroma and dry impression. Flavour is dry and mild citrusy, not much ginger. Light ginger into the far finish, slowly building into a more dense impression.

Fin (10047) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 21, 2008
Cask at The Turf, Oxford in the company of Glen 09-11-08. I finished on this beer before cycling home in the most appalling weather. Pours golden in colour with more of a powder ginger than root ginger profile. The lemon is there and does show itself but it really takes a back seat to the ginger, that said this is a well balanced beer, very refreshing and with a nice dry tangy finish, very nice indeed.

imdownthepub (13836) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 18, 2008
Cask conditioned at The Turf Tavern with Fin. Gold with white head. I was prepared to slate this, but it just goes to show, it was really very good. Hoppy and lemony with good bittering, dry and refreshing. I really liked it.
