Yellow color, small white head. Crisp lemony aroma, very citrus fruity. Medium-bodied. Sweet fruity, lime, fruit sugar. A bit sticky. Slightly hard to rate. Lemon bomb.

UPDATED: DEC 29, 2017 Cask/gravity at GBBF 2009. Pours a rich gold with good condition but almost no head. Honey, orange and apricots on the nose, a big fruity and sweetish warming body with a good sharp bitter tang and a citrus and peppery hops finish. Re-rate cask at the Magpie, a little haze but also a lasting coarse white foam. Still tangy-bitterness over warming fruity-sweetness. Lovely.

Cask at the New Crown (JDW) in Southgate. Thanks Magicdave! Clear amber gold with a creamy white head. Sweet, obviously heavily alcoholic from the nose, but not harsh. Smooth, it coats the mouth but isn’t sticky. Lots of nice oak and vanilla flavours and subtle warmth. hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 22, 2009
Cask, gravity, at St Neots BF ’09 (’Booze on the Ouse’). Gold. Aroma of Corona lemonade, but taste is thicker, oilier. Brimming with citrus. A little bitterness. Immensely, treacherously drinkable. DonMagi (5593) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 16, 2009
Cask in the new crown. Alround rating: Aroma when fresh on it an excellent mix of citrusy pineapple goodness, sweet pale malts, small toffee appleness too as it has been on a day or two. Taste is similarly flavoured and excellently balanced for the %, massivly dangerously drinkable stuff. bobinlondon (1297) - Harrow, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 16, 2009
Handpulled cask at the New Crown (JDW) Southgate. Gold with a White head. Superbly balanced barley wine/strong ale. Juicey malt characture peppered with plenty of citrus fruity hops which dominate in the finish. Another winner from Oakham.
