BeerViking (4388) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 13, 2016
Cask/gravity at the Kingston beer festival, gold with no head and a fruity nose. Dry-bitter and dusty malt, with berry overtones. Interesting but not well integrated.

jjsint (2575) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - NOV 23, 2015
Cask at the Stockbridge Tap, Edinburgh. Light copper or dark gold. Clear with a thin not-quite-white head. Aroma of berries and citrus, its pleasant but somewhat unfocused. Sweet taste with a bitter hoppy edge. Some unexpected astringency in the finish. Despite some balance issues, I am quite fond of this.

ManVsBeer (8927) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 28, 2014
Cask @ Crown Inn, Hebden Bridge. Not quite as expected as its golden with a creamy head. Has hops in its aroma, with a malt-hop character and only a light smattering of the fruit. Full-bodied.

AshtonMcCobb (5890) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 3, 2014
On tap @ the Bow Bar Winter beer festival. Appearance - golden with a nicely proportioned head. Nose - confectionery, maybe dried fruits. Parma violets. Taste - more dried fruit. Palate - medium bodied with a big creamy texture and a tangy but slightly too sweet finish. Overall - its tasty but it doesnt make me want to have another. Perhaps adding blackberries to a darker stronger beer is more usual and more appropriate.

Smells like robinsons cordial, clear gold with white lacing, low carbonation, low body and lots of blackcurrant squash...no hop flavours...artificial
