Medium creamy offwhite head. Clear paleish yellow body. Light floral fruity gooseberry aroma with wooden strawy notes. Dry-sweet strawy resiny floral taste with dusty wooden notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dryish floral fruity gooseberry aftertaste with resiny strawy dandelion notes. Very nice, full of character, vivid and highly drinkable. (0.284l cask at The Blue Bell, York.)

slugfolio (10) - West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 11, 2013
Place: Arcadia, Headingley. Served: Luke warm half pint from tap. The Good: Colour is an attractive straw, resembled something that could refresh on a summers day. Great creamy head retention all the way through. The Bad: Weak on the palette, distinct lack of aroma throughout and nothing to scream about when discussing hops. Not big, bold or loud. Overall: Not as dry as I was expecting after reading up on Roosters, will not be having it again. Certainly not a refreshing ale, not a session ale but I am sure it serves those that are not picky.

Cask conditioned handpump The Pub Leicester 20/07/12. A golden beer with a whitish head and lace. Very very dry and biscuity. Lacking any pleasant hop flavours at all. A real struggle this one.

Svesse (8357) - Hsselby, SWEDEN - AUG 7, 2006
(Cask, White Horse, Parsons Green, London, 23 July) Colour is yellow to orange with a frothy head. Nose is very fruity with a flowery hop character and lots of citrus (grapefruit, lemon peel). Same goes for the taste: fruity, with lemon and flowery hops. Starts sweet, turns drier in the hoppy finish. A bit one dimensional, but a nice, hoppy beer.
