FatPhil (16893) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 31, 2011
UPDATED: JUL 6, 2015 Cask (Cambridge Winter Ale Festival 2011) (7:3:7:4:13=3.4)
Light gold. Aroma is fresh hop and light fruits - nice! Refreshing hoppy taste, just what you need from a beer. Tingly hops in the finish. Easy drinker, but packed full of character, quality bitter.
Cask (CWAF2015) (5:3:5-:3-:9=2.5--)
Yikes, so sticky, not good - diacetyl bomb.

sm89walt (2079) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - FEB 6, 2011
Cask - The White Lion, Norwich. Poured with a fine & mostly disppearing white head & a clear golden body. Good citrus & sweeter, juicy hop profile. Some cheese on the aroma. Flavours of tangerine & grassy, citrus hops that approach grapefruit. Sweet pale malt body. Soft, light to medium body and a medium length hop finish.

Leighton (22021) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 19, 2010
Cask at the Pembury Tavern. Pours clear, honey-yellow with a faint, film head. Sharp hay and grass hop aroma. Flavor has a bit of sweetness, light caramel, some hammy roast (oddly enough), and delicate, straw bitterness. Light bodied with tingly carbonation. Finishes nicely with understated breadiness, light warmth and some subtle, earth and grass bitters. Good stuff.

bacchanalia (146) - milton, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - NOV 6, 2009
Lovely grassy, herbaceous nose. A beautifully pure blond, lovely rounded palate, nice waft of light barley & citrus, very refreshing, with all the flavours knitted nicely together with a clean finish.

imdownthepub (15129) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 11, 2009
Cask conditioned at The Coalheavers, Peterborough. Gold with white head. Really fresh hoppy on a light, slightly grainy body. An easy drinking beer with just touches of peachy, fruity and lemon notes. I hadn’t been in this pub before, but I was happy that we walked the extra distance, it’s a very pleasant place.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 22, 2009
Light orange colored with vanishing yellow head. Cloudy appearance. Hopped aroma with lemon and flowers, some soapy note also comes up. Thin to medium bodied. Flavor is lemony in start with hops coming up with flowers, aftertaste dries with yeast.

oh6gdx (26487) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 2, 2009
[email protected] Tavern. Golden colour, off-white head. Aroma is mild flowery hops as well as earth and yeast. Flavour is the same with a big bittery and flowery finish.

fonefan (50616) - VestJylland, DENMARK - JUN 18, 2009
Cask (handpump) @ Devonshire Cat, Wellington Street, Devonshire Green, Sheffield, South Yorkshire, England S1 4HG.
Clear medium orange color with a average, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, off-white to white head. Aroma is moderate malty, toasted, moderate hoppy, lime, ginger notes. Flavor is moderate sweet and bitter with a average to long duration, and a light peppery finish. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft to flat. [20090419]

ladnewton (2014) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 5, 2009
Cask, at the Oakdale Arms, London N4, UK on 3rd June 2009. Hoppy, pale, bitter ale, light body and a weak, white head which quickly reduces. The beer was on good condition at the Oakdale, and strong hop notes in the aroma precede a main hoppy and slightly citrus fruity kick. Condition (despite virtually no head) conveys a medium palate of soft carbonation, and a lasting dry finish ensues. A rewarding pint.

3.2
dnas2 (705) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - MAY 23, 2009
Gravity at Cambridge Beer Festival 2009. Orange in colour with no head. Very floral scent. Slightly sticky in the mouth. Slightly carbonated. Quite sweet with a dry bitterness kicking in at the end. Lots of hops, quite earthy with roasted vegetables and some yeast.
