Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Gold with white head. Quite a fruity, light beer with a late hoppy, sharp note, some berry notes, redcurrant perhaps then orange zest in the follow through. I quite enjoyed this one. Benjii (3050) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 18, 2012
On cask at The Standing Order for the Wetherspoons beer festival. Pours a golden colour with a fair white head. Aroma of grassy hops, caramel, yeast and alcohol. Similar flavours with mild carbonation, lingering caramel and grassy hops and an oily mouth-feel. Nicely bitter also. Leighton (22307) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 23, 2012
Cask at The Crosse Keys, JDW, London. Pours clear gold with a fine, white foam head. Toasted hay on the nose. Medium sweet flavor with notes of dry hay and straw, light nuts and white bread toast. Light in body with fine carbonation. Mild spice in the finish, some bread, straw and light fruits. Pretty basic bitter but not too bad. maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - APR 1, 2012

Sourish tang of fruit; tangerine and lime hints, apple sauce, gooseberry, biscuit, lingering oat and wheat finish; retronasal saline, rhubarb. Better than reasonable.

The ale is distinctive for its hoppy bitterness in both its aroma and its taste.
