Pint draft @ The Black Friar
Floral and lightly fruity in both the aroma and the taste. It is somewhat bitter and definitely hoppy. A medium long finish with some dough towards the end. A typical English ale with extra hops.
The beer has quite a nice look. Golden yellow/amber blend. It’s quite clear. There is a nice rough white foam on top of the beer, of which the bulk collapses quickly leaving a nice drape.
The smell is nice. There is a nice alcohol aroma, quite strong. Also there nice malt aroma. Besides this there are some nice fresh hops with nice citrusy aromas and aromas of summery fruits. It reminds me of some Dutch saisons.
The same goes for the taste. Nice alcoholy stinginess and warmth. Besides this there are some hoppy citrus flavours. It sure has a saison like touch. There is a nice balance between sweetness, bitterness and sourness. Maybe its a tiny bit out of balance towards the sour side. Quite a nice beer though. Finn (7547) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 12, 2016

Had this many times. Pours light golden with tight lazing offwhite head. Aroma has light malt, bread, biscuit and hops with grass and straw. Taste is light malty with bread, biscuit and slight notes of toffee and is hoppy with grass, hay and notes of resin. Finish is balanced sweet, malty and bitter.
Cask at The Station, West Byfleet. Slightish hoppy aroma. Amber with shaving foam head. Light bitterness. Light body. Goes down easily.

Cask ale by gravity at Dolphin Hotel. Naked surface, dotted spots on the glass, clear copper coloured body. Rich brown malty aroma joined by fruity hops. Caramel flavours, nicely roasted, supported by dark fruit and leafy hops towards the ending. Natural soft carbonated. Good beer drinking (Plymouth 22.09.2016). ippopotamo36 (2417) - Rome, ITALY - SEP 11, 2016
Tap at Samo Pivo pub in Belgrade-Serbia. It was on tap and I think I should rate under cask rather than bottle (?). Semi-clear deep golden pour, tick creamy foam. Nose: pungent notes of lime, lemon skin, tons of lemon grass and some herb (oregano). Mouth: frizzy carbonation close to prosecco, a bit sessional (watery) with an even more frizzy mineral pepper-like finish (and bitter too).

Cask at The Emperor, Farnham Common, Buckinghamshire. Pours a clear golden/copper colour with a small white head. Aroma of floral hop, malt, caramel, and a fruity edge. Medium sweetness and light bitterness. Medium body, texture is creamy/slightly oily, perfect level of carbonation. Finish is crisp, with a lasting sweetness. Gregfrsmith (12) - FRANCE - JUL 28, 2016
I don’t think that this is the cask version as I’m in France. Probably keg. Good beer
