Cask-conditioned at the Seven Stars, Bristol 10/02/2012. Deep amber with a slight white head. Aroma of tropical fruit, pine resin and a touch of caramel. Sweet malt flavours upfront, followed by grapefruit and pineapple and a dry finish with more pine. Enjoyable. Svesse (8598) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - AUG 13, 2011

Bottle, Best Western Marina Hotel, Dover, 12/02/12. Needless to say the hotel didn’t provide me with this one. Muddy ruby, fine lacing beige. Floral hop, earthy malt aroma with butter, coffee, cinder toffee. Good background tropical and grapefruit hop. Nutty, bitter floral hop flavour with oily, chocolate orange, walnut notes. Hot metal and green hop burps. A bit washy. Liquorice, digestives. Drinks like a concentrate of Shep Neame Spitfire. kraddel (8110) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - SEP 26, 2015

Attractive red-brown color, frothy off-white head. The aroma is quite hoppy and sweet. The taste is certainly bitter, but balanced with a fruity sweetness. The mouthfeel’s pleasingly constructed. Nicely carbonated, medium mouthfeel. Overall, this is quite good. It’s not Magic Rock’s premier offering, but certainly worthy. The_Osprey (7984) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 16, 2015
Apr 2015 - Keg at Draft House. Dark amber, sparkling, slight haze, small white head, light lacing. Aroma is sweet and syrupy caramel, flowery hop. Body is medium, tingly carbonation, pretty smooth.
