[2714-20100119] Tap. Pungent apple sweet fruit aroma. Clear, dark orange body with a quick foamy white head. Little apple flavour has lots of buttery toasted malt notes. Medium body. Really good, odd fruitiness.

Cask at princess Louise. Takes a while to settle. Settles to a dark gold with a thick creamy, cream coloured head. aroma is malty and hoppy but also wet hay and paper. Smooth malty taste. Head is a bit chewy at first. Easy drinking.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 21, 2008
(Cittie of York) Dark coppery colored, medium sized yellow head. Soft aroma with sweet fruits and mild bitterness, lemon also present. Thin to medium bodied. Flavor starts with fruits and apple, ending turns to slightly bitter and fruity. Good beer, still could have richer flavor.

bobinlondon (1297) - Harrow, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 29, 2008
UPDATED: MAR 22, 2009 Handpulled cask at THe Princess Louise, London. Orange with creamy white head. Good balance of malt and fruit with a very slightly lactic yeastiness. Dry bitter finish. Not a great beer but an excellent session drink which still tastes much as it did 30 years ago, Brilliant value at £1.88 a pint in central London!

kempicus (343) - Bakewell, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - MAR 18, 2009
Tried on cask at the cittie of yorke. Dispensed via sparkler of course! One of the cheapest pints in london i reckon at 1.88 a pint! bloody good drinking for the price, Light fruity aroma on the nose, nice mouth feel with a dry bitter finish, great lunchtime pint!
