Cask at Cloisters. Slightly murky yellow amber, small white head. Lemony, slightly grassy/sweaty resinous hop nose. Similar palate, orange zest, slightly sherbet, orange cordial, massive resinous hop bitterness. Yummy hoppiness! BeerCast_Rich (1906) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 25, 2012
[cask at the Stockbridge Tap, Edinburgh] Golden pour with a thin white head. Bitter orange aroma. Plenty of bitterness in evidence on the palate, but after a while it settles down - I had a second half later and the initial acidic bitterness had reduced quite a bit, as the palate attuned. Orange cordial flavours, leading into a nice pithy hop finish, which is long and bitter  Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 19, 2012
On cask at the Ely Winter Beer Festival, 2012. Pours a blonde colour with a thick white head. A resinous hop aroma with pine, pineapple, caramel, yeast and alcohol. Similar resinous hop flavours with mild carbonation and a very dry finish. Superb. bobinlondon (1297) - Harrow, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 19, 2012
Gravity cask at the Merton BF 2012. Slightly hazy gold with a loose bubbled white head. Typical Steel City hop accented effort with resinous citrus fruity bitterness, with some grapefruit and pineapple balancing delicate sweet malts. Splendid!

Cask, gravity at Merton Winter Beer Festival, 17th & 18th February 2012 Pours hazy light gold with a bubbly white head. Plenty of citrus from the off and whilst it was another very pleasant beer from Steel City (they never really put a foot wrong) the more I drank it the more confusing I found it, maybe I needed to just sit, relax and sup it at a more leisurely pace. Along with the Pictish Claymore, Acorn Northern Brewer IPA and Green Jack Baltic Trader this was amongst the big faves of the weekend. Juicy, fruity with a good dollop of orange and some pithiness, runs to a good dryness at the end. Good beer. A8 A3 T7 P4 Ov15 3.7 imdownthepub (14776) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 19, 2012
Cask conditioned at Merton Beer Fest ’12. Hazy gold with white head. I was really impressed with this, dry and bitter overall with extreme hoppy notes of bitter orange and grapefruit, but a whole lot more as well. Obviously unfined, I do get the fruity freshness that remains. Really top notch and I not really qualified to describe it. My beer of this excellent, as usual, Festival.
