Cask-conditioned at the Hillgrove Porter Stores, Bristol 7/08/10. Sweetish, golden pale ale, with some citrus hips in the finish. Easy drinking, but not memorable. RichardGretton (4785) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 10, 2010

Beer Festival 2010. Golden beer with an airy head. The aroma is lightly bitter, and the flavour is bitter tap water. Overall a diappointing beer.
Cask conditioned gravity dispense Royal George Cottingham. A copper coloured beer. Blighted by diacetyl. Some earthiness and tea. There is a little fruitiness but otherwise really quite poor. RichardW (1813) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - APR 30, 2010
Cask, King’s Head, Carlisle. Typical brew from Phoenix. Sharp, bitter spicy hops. Fine pale gold appearance, refreshing, a good ’summer’ style beer. hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 22, 2010
Cask at Wellington Arms, Bedford. Gold with a small white head. Quite a nice buttery malt aroma. Taste is best described as sour butter. Mid bitter finish. Better than it sounds.

Fruity malty hoppy citrus flavor with some hints of caramel. Has a fruity malty hoppy finish. BeerViking (5041) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 30, 2009
Cask gravity at Red Lion Isleworth, malty aroma, good bitterness with malty body and a hint of spice - coriander? Long dry bitter finish. EFC1878 (315) - Manchester, Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - AUG 11, 2008
The usual from Phoenix/Oak. Lovely golden colour. Although malt features in the aroma it’s predominately flowery/hoppy; so much so it may even be dry-hopped. Plenty of hops in the flavour with a nice bitter finish. Medium bodied. Shame it’s not available more often. Rastacouere (6177) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 21, 2007
Pale amber pour topped by a lasting off-white head. Fresh grainy and herbal nose combining hops and malts in a rather bright fashion. Dry flowery hops take more place in mouth, but again, a pretty grainy, hay-like almost, nutty maltiness midway between pale and dark takes a lot of room as well. Perhaps a bit clashing, but not a bad ale. MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 2, 2007
A Mes rate:
Cask at an awful JDW in Wood Green. Rather enjoyed this one. Heavy with citric hops, dust and tobacco. Mango, pear and other tropical fruits abound. Tasty hoppy stuff all the way through. Good beer.
