Cask, Nottingham Fest 05. Golden brown with no head. Aromas are caramel malts with fruit and some sourness. Hints of pine, also. Flavours are soft toffee and smooth caramel malts with sweet, spicy hops in the USA style. Easy to glug - a good beer. RichardGretton (4770) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 28, 2005

Blond/Golden beer with a fruity, vinous aroma and a light fruity flavour that is slightly weak. Overall a nice fruity mango like beer.
Cask gravity at Notts BF 05. Hazy copper/brown beer. Strong aroma of US hops. Quite toffeeish with good hop finish. Citrus is grapefruit and a bit muddy. Mungo (2470) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - MAR 31, 2004
Cask-conditioned @ JDW. Floral melon & grapefriot hop aromas. Slight caramel sweetness with heavy resinous hop finish. A good change.

Draught in the Briar Rose (JDW), Birmingham. Big and very hoppy beer, a big change from the British bitters which are usually in evidence in Wetherspoons' pubs. A grainy orange brown colour, with a fairly fluffy head and thick IPA aroma. Very dry, verging on harsh, and a sandpaper finish on your tongue and throat. Tasty, with some fruit and malt notes, and pretty refreshing too. SilkTork (5737) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - MAY 14, 2003
Cask, Wetherspoons, Blackpool. The Wetherspoons pub in Blackpool is one of the dreariest pubs I've been into, but managed to serve up the best beer of the Blackpool Rocks weekend. Because it also serves food all day long, it was also the only pub we visited twice. This Brooklyn Best, brewed under advice from Garrett Oliver, contains Willamette, Cascade and Chinook hops, delivering a wonderful brew. The colour is a hazy orange straw. A beautiful rush of citric flavours perform a delicate broken glass dance with lemons and grapefruits, finishing with a subtle pirouette of crushed ice vanilla. Winner of the Blackpool Rocks weekend.
