BCA (From BItter Virtue, BB 01/07). Rich gold colour. Nice multilayered hop aroma with lots of leafiness and more subtle citrus and earthy notes. The hops dont overwhelm with a firm dry malt body leading into the long bitter finish. Gethinbeer (2452) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - JUN 17, 2007
Pint in the Kings Head, Monmouth. Copper appearance with a decent frothy head. Fruity flavour with a pleasant citrus bitterness. Good standard bitter. JorgeLee (2260) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 23, 2012
Cask at the Golden Eagle, W1. Caveat to this review as I don’t think this beer was served in optimal condition - it wasn’t very nice. Pale golden colour, but dominant flavour of earthy, musty hoppy bitterness. Would love to re-rate as it seems my review is way off track, but this is what I had...

Zesty, orange hops. Nicely dry but not overly so. Very drinkable with a great puffy texture. ladnewton (2053) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 25, 2009
Cask on 25th September 2009. Brown/amber with smoth thin white head, holding up well under brisk consumption. A pleasant malt backdrop paved the way for a sharp, hoppy burst that is perfectly balanced by the malt. The hop was grassy, not citric, and cheesy notes were detected. A long, ticklingly hoppy finish on a textured mouthfeel. A very pleasant surprise and one of the best beers I had drunk in the fortnight ending 25th Sept 2009.

For a beer that looks - basically - terrible (cloudy, lifeless, a kind of brck orange colour), and smells of not much but a slight hop, this one very much overdelivers on the initial promise. The flavour is full of well-balanced hoppiness with all the citrus notes and dry finish that entails. The mouthfeel is smooth and pleasant, and not as flat as it looks with a gentle spritzig that tickles the tongue. In fact, I’m rating the appearance higher than I would in order to increase the score for a beer that really should not be punished for looking so crap.

Dark amber colour didn’t have a head and was cloudy in appearance. It had a perfume aroma and had some carbonation. It was thick and had a hoppy taste. Mothroy (91) - - MAR 21, 2016
Bottle at home. Bottle conditioned but crystal clear. Mid brown colour with a good lasting head. Little aroma. Palate is smooth, malted grain, well rounded mouthfeel. Enough hop bite to keep it refreshing. Mellow malt aftertaste.
