Beer Festival, 2008. Golden beer with a toffee aroma and a vinous and mildly dry flavour. Overall a reasonable beer.

Clear medium yellow orange color with a small, fizzy, virtually none lacing, fully diminishing, off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, buttery. Flavor is moderate sweet and bitter with a average duration. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is flat. (020508)

Solid gold with a slim white head and excellent condition. Peaty, earthy and slightly sweet. Light tobacco and dust. Excellent grassy hops balanced with dryish earthy maltage. Possibly just a little too sweet but I love the almost iodine character from the peaty notes in the finish. Solid stuff from Milton.
(Cask at Oakdale Arms, Harringay, London, 24 April 2008) Golden yellow colour with frothy, white head. Fruity, malty nose with citrus, apricots and fresh notes of grassy hops. Malty, fruity, clean taste with notes of citrus and a dry, hoppy, grassy finish (almost leaning in the german pilsner direction). Some malt sweetness in the middle. Nice and very refreshing.

Cask (stillage) at Oakdale Arms Beer Festival, April 2006. A lot of pale beers at this festival but I thought this one stood out a little from the pack. The aroma has a good whack of resinous hop, but there’s a dry malt background too. More sharp, bitter hops on the palate. Slightly oily character. Rock soled, grippy finish. A hit. For me at least.

Oakdale arms. Quite sweet and almost sugary to start. Sweet toffee, and light brown sugar notes. Finish is bitter, yet sticky at the same time. Wasn’t sure quite what to make of it, but it didn’t do a hell of a lot for me.

Hazy orange colour, thin fine head. Intense bitterness. From the outset you can tell this beer has a little bit more then the rest. Jam packed with bitterness the beer is generous and intense. The bitterness has extreme length on the palate. A bitter man’s bitter.
Hand pulled at the Bartons Arms, Birmingham. Cloudy dark yellow. Thin head with lacing. Aroma like an English seaside town - salty, seaweed, freshness too. Slick taste, acidic, hoppiness, with a rich citrus quality. Intense stuff, with a crunchy finish, which is simultaneously smooth on the tongue. Soft to begin, the flavour builds. Another superbly balanced beer at this venue. Superb.
