GBBF Day 1. Cask. Clear gold beer, small pale cream colour head. Palate is light and semi dry, modest fine carbonation. Light and slightly dry pale malts, modest sweetness. Mild citric peel. Light semi dry finish. Clean.
At GBBF. Creamy, thickly lacing, yellowish white, clearly hops-enhanced head adorning a beautifully deep and pure amber colour with calm fizz, a bit hazy. Aroma of toasted bread, roasted pinenuts, caramel, fried egg but not unpleasantly so, flowers, some dried orange peel. Clean and crisp taste of dried berries with a soft, smooth, toasted and nutty maltiness underneath as well as a hint of clean and even refreshing, pure honey sweetishness; finish is florally hoppy, not thoroughly bitter but pleasantly fragrant retronasally, while the aftertaste remains juicily malty. Pleasant and well-balanced English style IPA. mR_fr0g (13977) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 12, 2015

Cask at the Post Horn. It pours pours clear amber with a decent white head. The nose is sweet orange citrus, candied peel, oily caramel, wood and sweet floral. The nose taste is firm bitterness, wood, peppery, pithy lemon, florals and some underlying sweetness, with a dry finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Rather nice nose to it and drinkable enough. OK. Erzengel (9745) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - AUG 12, 2014
Cask @ Post Horn, St. Helier.
Smooth and fresh beginning, intense and smooth. Fine hints of flowery hops. The mainpart is smooth, nice balanced malty with a nice floral bitterness. Not too sweet, but smooth fitting in! The aftertaste is fresh, easy to drink and still deep - nice sweetish maltiness with a subtle aroma of floral hops! tcs261 (1) - - AUG 8, 2014 does not count
Much better than the bottled version!!
Very nice example of a British IPA. Nice fruity hop flavours which do not overpower the malts. Would be a great session beer. MrTipple (6952) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 24, 2014
