Oakes (19370) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 3, 2010
Gold colour. Vague aroma, maybe some caramel taste. A little bit of burnt electrical phenols, but also a lot of fruitiness and some minerals late. Plenty of character, but at no point coalescing into anything I actually want. imdownthepub (15518) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 6, 2004

Long, fairly dry, hoppy and bitter finish. Lots of taste for the rather low ABV. maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - SEP 6, 2004
Cask conditioned - handpump -Lower Red Lion St Albans. A copper coloured ale with a hint of hops. There is alight hop taste and it is a fairly typical English Summer ale. No more no less. BlackHaddock (7956) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 12, 2012
21st April: opening of the refurbished ‘Elephant and Castle’ in Dawley, Shropshire. Hand pulled pint of a golden misty body, on top a thin crown of white bubbles sat throughout the tasting.
The smell was of citrusy hops with floral overtones, only a suggestion of malts in the nose.
The taste was a pleasant blend of those aforementioned hop flavours and a malt caramel feel.
Body depth fine for the alcohol content: an OK beer but no world beater.
larsga (7675) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 25, 2013
Small coarse offwhite head. Paleish slightly hazy yellow body. Vague floral aroma. Dryish floral fruity taste with elderberry notes. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Light body. Dryish fruity wine grape aftertaste with spicy herbal notes. Nice, but a bit low on flavour. (0.284l cask at Charlie’s Bar, Copenhagen.)
