I enjoyed a couple of pints of this last weekend, aroma is of rich caramel, stewed ruits and a slihtly citric hop note. Taste is pleasingly complex leading to a lightly dry but long lasting finish. Better than the bottled version for sure! Perpignan73 (42) - Merseyside, ENGLAND - JUL 20, 2016
UPDATED: AUG 11, 2016 Pint, cask at Waggon & Horses Elstree. Lovely bright amber, clear, creamy white head; wonderful sweet, zingy citrus nose - sherbet, grass, biscuit; balanced mild bitter sweet taste; caramel and fruit palate but short and loses intensity. This is all upfront about the nose and taste. It needs more punch and depth, but nevertheless so drinkable I had to order a second. graham_murphy (695) - - JUN 19, 2016
Half pint as Taste of London. Always a fan of this genre - red ale with fresh new world hops. Subtly done - not quite as punchy as 5am saint. Peach, citrus and pine from the hops. Toffee and caramel from the malt. Like a sunny autumn morning. minutemat (5940) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 7, 2016
KEG (not cask) @ The ALB, Shrewsbury. Pours clear deep amber, off-white head. Aroma is light caramel malts. Taste is leafy caramel, with a strange fruity sweetness. Fine. eastkenttom (135) - herne bay, Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 27, 2016
A little subdued from what I remember - perhaps i’d drank the bottled version before.
Still, it’s pretty decent and passed the time nicely.
Has toffee and hazelnut notes, light on citrus which is a nice change.
Looks lovely though - a very lucid amber beer.

Medium creamy white head. Clear amber pour. Good bitterness. Decent beer BeerViking (4989) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 3, 2015
On keg, not cask. Sulphur on the nose, hints of toffee and candy sugar, seems smoother/blander than the bottled version. BrewTom (661) - - OCT 28, 2015
Not much aroma but some caramel sweetness with balancing bitterness.

4.5%, keg at Ye Olde Bull & Bush, Stoke. Pours amber with an off white head. Pretty muted, some spice, not as good as the bottled version. downender (8774) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 19, 2014
Cask-conditioned at the grosvenor, Hanwell, 18/9/2014. deep copper in colour, with a decent, off-white, head. Sweetish malts, red berries and a touch of grassy hop. Flavour also contained a touch of spice in amongst the fruit, before a moderately bitter finish. Good.
