Cask at Babington Arms, Derby. Coriander, basically. It’s to the fore but not IMO overwhelming, lovely medium gold body, light and crisp, would make a knockout sumer session beer but it’s alomost ready to snow here at the moment, even better than the Umbel Magna.

Orange, no head. Lightly hoppy aroma. Zingy fresh hoppy taste - clear corriander seeds. Sweet maltiness - caramel and more corriander. Beersiveknown (5309) - NORTHERN IRELAND - NOV 29, 2011

beer festival 2011. Pale brown with herbal aroma. Corriander leaf rather than seed, so herbal taste noticable. subtle malt flavours but prefer the umbel magna. Paired with a burrito nicely.
Smells strongly of fresh flowers and coriander. As clean as cut grass with floral notes in the taste, too. A very good low alcohol glugger! Fin (11054) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 31, 2006
Cask at Merton Beer Festival, Oxon, July 2005. Wrm golden colour, could just about detect the coriander but also florally, beer a touch on the thin side but good level of bitterness and a thouroughly decent pint.

Cask at Cockney Pub. Creamy white good mostly lasting head. DArk yellow colour. Light malty and heavy hoppy aroma. Pine and grassy notes. Heavy bitter nice flavor. Long heavy bitter finish. Creamy palate. Excellent. TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 19, 2007
Half pint gravity fed from the cask at the Ealing Beer Festival, dark black with a filmy tan head. An light toasted aroma, with ’old school’ licorice and a touch of spice. A tart aniseed flavour, bitter and dry (maybe too dry). Quite enjoyable. fiulijn (21511) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 20, 2007
Cask at Bishop’s Arms, Malmö
Golden color, generous head. Impressive aroma of citrusy hops, then showing green hops and earthy hops too. Medium-light body, quite dry mouthfeel, some malt flavor with a crispy touch, it gets a bit metallic too. The final is full of herbal hops and it has a quite harsh bitterness. Clever usage of the hops.
