On tap somewhere! Clear amber beer. Light dry palate. Creamy malt base and a light spicy feel about it, I guess from the rye. Marmalade hops, just a slight bitter edge. Finishes dry. Not bad.

Tasted this in the Esquire House, Glasgow in January 2010. Cask, handpump dispense. Crystal clear golden amber in colour with a thin white head. Very slight hint of burnt toffee in the short aroma. Thin mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malts give a digestive biscuit base with a dry tart fruit note of redcurrants. Full robust grain note in the aftertaste with a metallic tang of hop resins leaching through. Bitter flavours present in the finish with citrus pith in evidence.

Cask. Pale copper colour, small beige head. Aroma is wood, herbs, some caramel and bready notes as well. Flavour is caramel and crystal malts along with fruits, wood, some birch sap and mild resiny notes.

Cask (handpump) @ Shakespeares Head, Africa House, 64-68 Kingsway, Holborn, Greater London, England WC2B 6BG.
Clear light medium yellow orange color with a small average, frothy with butter dabs, fair lacing, mostly diminishing, off-white to white head. Aroma is moderate malty, toasted, fruity, apple, light to moderate hoppy, citrus notes. Flavor is moderate sweet and light bitter with a average duration. Body is light to medium, texture is watery, carbonation is soft to flat. [20091228]

JDW Rochester. Light amber leaning into orange. Hoppy bite up front on a juicy malt base. Moderate sweetness. Good balance between hop and malt producing a light lovely and zingy session ale - like a zingy marmalade. Nice.

500ml bottle - shared by Mark&Sarah - thanks!
Spicy menthol and mashy aroma - vapo-rub. Softer taste - bready. However, some saccharine in the finish is drying in places. Fullish palate, but a tiny touch of elastoplast.

berkshirejohn (6588) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 3, 2010
Cask at the Monks Retreat (JDW), Reading. Gold with a dense, nitro-style, cream head; grainy aroma; watery body with sweet, vaguely floral flavours; and a dry biscuity finish. Rather unimpressed by this.

chriso (7583) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 29, 2010
Cask (gravity dispense) at Ealing Beer Festival, July 2009. Amber colour. Loose white head. Moderate condition. Distinctly grainy (not in a bad way) aroma but I wouldn’t necessarily have picked out rye. Very dry mouthfeel. More malty character. Hops only make a late appearance but produce a strong bitterness in the aftertaste. Decent drinkable stuff - tasty for a 3.8% session bitter.

Borresteijn (7345) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - DEC 8, 2009
Cask at in de Wildeman. Hazy amber colour, almost no head. Faint fruity hop aroma. Flavour is light fruity, some caramel, smooth and rather bitter. Light to medium bodied. OK bitter.
