Cask (Volunteer, Baker Street, London) - Amber in colour. Hoppy and fruity aroma with notes of grapefruit and toffee. The taste is nicely balanced with notes of grapefruit, caramel and dried fruit all vying for attention. Plovmand (8266) - Helsinge, DENMARK - MAR 22, 2010
Cask at Prince Regent, London. Deep golden body with a creamy white head. The aroma is light toffee, caramel and floral hops. The flavour is quite fruity, biscuits, caramel and lighter subtle notes of hops. Nice fruity and light nutty finish. mabel (9246) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 14, 2010

Overheard: "Smells like one of the aisles at the supermarket."

Sampler tray at Pontefract Castle, London. Straw colored pour with a quickly fading head. Smells of citrus hop with a brown sugar background. Tastes of bitter citrus and some piney hop, with a bit of a gritty feel (which actually isn’t unpleasant). Muggus69 (2438) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - FEB 10, 2010
Orange gold body, thick white foam.
Citrus fruit hops on the nose; pleasantly flowery and grassy, backing malt sweetness. Decent bitter note to finish.
Low carbonation, medium-lean body.
Enjoyable pint, wouldn’t mind one right now actually.

Cask. Poured amber with an eggshell head that lasted a bit. Aroma was a nice combination of earthy malts and piney hops. Flavor was a bit more bitter from the hops but still an earthy flavor quite present. ladnewton (1937) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 12, 2009
Cask at the Fox & Hounds, 29 Passmore Street, London SW1W 3HR, England on 11th November 2009. Amber with a white lasting head, though mainly diminishing. Citric hop aroma and some bitterness rounded by slightly caramelised malt. Light and easy drinking, slightly textured mouthfeel and a dry finish. I haven’t drank this beer for quite a few years, and was pleasantly surprised by its taste. bb (9241) - Alamo, California, USA - OCT 16, 2009
