Originally brewed by mistake when one of the brewers put the wrong sort of malt into a batch of Red Rock but realised his mistake before he added the hops. A quickly devised blend of Goldings and Bramling Cross produced a wonderful dry, nutty beer which is perfectly balanced.

JorisPPattyn (9913) - Ursel, BELGIUM - NOV 13, 2016
Somewhat aged sample Towering dense & fine, slowly collapsing off-white head over clear orangey-golden beer. Difficult to perceive aromas with the huge head. Hoppy, herbal, chamomille. Slightly sharpish toasted flaovur over herbal, nettle-like hops. Slightly earthy flavour. Quite carbonated, light body but slick. Not half bad. Thanks to Stefaan!

imdownthepub (14335) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 21, 2012
Cask conditioned at The Turf Tavern, Oxford. Burnished gold with slight head. Heady, flowery beer, quite intense really, resinous hops, but a bitter nutty malt makes it a little unbalanced. Not really to my taste.

ALLOVATE (2992) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - DEC 15, 2011
UPDATED: DEC 16, 2011 Bottle at just on cool. Poured a hazy sunny amber with fine, intermittent carbonation and a rocky, messy white crown atop that left minimal legs. There is a lot of tangy sweet marmalade on the nose with inklings of peach, sultanas, toasted nuts and pine and what I can only describe as driftwood (maybe the name was subliminally suggestive on that one!). Good body, lightly spritzy on the tongue, well conditioned. Predominately citrussy with marmalade so well pronounced amid flavours of toasted malt and nuts, subtle grass and floral, zesty hops. Light bitter edge on the swallow drying out somewhat thereafter. Ends shortish, crisp, tangy and floral. Good balance of flavour and quite meaty overall yet pleasantly sessionable. This is a great bitter and another gem from this brewer! (50cL, BBE 06/12, Bridge House Cellars, Exmouth, Devon)

On gravity at the Green Man, Bristol 26/09/10. Deep gold with a slight, white head. Earthy malt aroma with soem grassy hops and a touch of fruit. Flavour was yeasty, with some cereal malts, sweetish fruits and bitter finish. Fine.
