Cask at the Devonshire Arms, Cambridge. Golden, clear with almost no head. Apricot, tropical fruit and seawater in the aroma. Strong alcoholic fruity taste. Unfortunately the aftertaste is astringent bordering on acrid so the whole package is brought down a notch. Ethereal (2421) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JAN 2, 2009
Cask at the White Lion, Norwich, "Boxing Day Expedition" crawl, 26th Dec 08. Amber. Honey, whisky and banana notes on the nose. Nice warmth at the finish. kwik-lime (1926) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 7, 2016
Cask at the Pembury Tavern in Hackney. Nicely balanced, enjoyable session beer with hints of citrus. tombyars (1702) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - FEB 12, 2012
Tasted this at the Paisley Beer Festival in April 2000. Cask, gravity dispense. Clear mahogany in colour with a loose white head. Strong over ripe banana aroma, long in intensity. Thick creamy mouthfeel and no lacing. Mixed complex malts give a juicy maltloaf base with rich, sweet creamy toffee pecan pie, mashed banana and maple syrup. There might have been a faint whiff of hop resins in the very brief aftertaste but heavy malt rule here. Finish is rich & heavy on the malt with almost alcoholic rum like notes tasting warming and sweet in the mouth. A superb new English Strong Ale, tasting far stronger and ABV suggests. Highly recommended in cask and worth seeking out. A very popular ale at the festival. Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - MAY 14, 2008
Gravity, Banbury beer festival. Bright gold, translucent white head. Black current, black berry, a bit of husky grain. Light marmalade and berry sweetness, a little thin for all the sweetness, and kind of hot. Not quite up to the usual standards for Milton.
I had this on the Thursday of the festival. I wonder if it settled down and mellowed by the time Fin and Glen had it? Have to find it again...

Melon and sweet citrus. Medium body with a mid and full bitter. Quite a tasty beer. haddonsman (1234) - Derby, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - JAN 12, 2006
Cask (gravity) at the Lion Inn beer festival, Basford, Nottingham. On the Deep Black stag crawl. A rather up-front flavoured beer; smoky malts, fruity mouthfeel, a little too unsubtle for me to really love it. albertane (377) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAR 29, 2008
Cask at the Bell, Nottingham. This copper beer has an enjoyably rich palate, a floral aroma, and a fruity flavour with lots of lemon. evilempire (153) - sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2008
A red ale with fruity overtones. not as hoppy as I usually like, but a very drinkable red ale with no alcohol burn, nicely balanced
