Cask conditioned at The Dukes Cut, Oxford. Gold with white head. There was a thick honeyed flavour to this, caramel then a blackberry note. Heavyish on the palate, lasting. fiulijn (21022) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 8, 2012
Cask at Wellington, Birminghamdogbomb (1244) - ENGLAND - JUN 30, 2012
Golden color. Mild aroma, light bread. Light body and mouthfeel; light caramel flavor; dryish finish.
The single hop is not really shining.
Cask. Light golden with a thin, but tight, white head. Nose is light citrus and light summer berries - strawberry. A little wheat. Initial mouthfeel is quite watery, quite peppery and spicy, can pick out some plummy tastes, vine fruits and berry citrus. Sadly, the bitterness is a bit overpowering here and the finish is slightly underwhelming. damienharrison (1) - ENGLAND - JUN 28, 2012 does not count
Very interesting beer, tried it at Cross Keys nr Middlesbrough. Initially looks like a wheat beer but settles into a golden beer with a slight citrus taste. kwoeltje (2233) - Manchester, Missouri, USA - JUN 28, 2012
(cask London) dark gold with white head. Floral hops and caramel malt in aroma and flavor. Hops were floral/grassy.

Cask conditioned handpump Althorp Coaching Inn Great Brington 15/06/12. A golden coloured beer with a white head and lacing. A bit of spicy hop and biscuity malt in the nose. A bit tired in the mouth although that might be the Marstons sulphur. A touch of lemon. Not a hop showcase. stravale (3088) - Co. Westmeath, IRELAND - JUN 23, 2012

Cask @ The George. Pours mid-light amber with small tight head. Slightly yeasty grassy nose. Taste is a bit unusual, but I can’t decide what, don’t think much stands out. Smooth mouth-feel, didn’t notice a sparkler but feels like one was used. Ok, but nothing special.
