Cask Conditioned, at the Market Porter, Borough, London .Garrat (1347) - Suffolk, ENGLAND - FEB 5, 2005
Golden blonde with a proud, bright white head. Soft white appearance is overcome with pineapple, fruit salad hop aroma. Bags of hop aroma, tore through the MP dense atmosphere, so much so that even Sully would have been impressed. Generous lickings of flavour as well. Balance and with purpose. Very delicious indeed.

Hand pulled at the Swan and Rushes, Leicester. Very hoppy indeed: big citric, aggressive. Some pepper and grapefruit. Almost harsh in the aftertaste, but still palatable and still fresh. Good, hard stuff. StueyD (1586) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - SEP 11, 2006
A hazy, pale golden yellow coloured beer with a thick white head. A lemony citrus hop aroma, slightly sour. The taste is very dry, and hoppy, with a tart citrus fruit flavour of lemons and grapefruit, followed by a dry finish. (Cask - The Fox & Hounds, Heacham, Norfolk). maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - DEC 2, 2006
