Cask handpull, The Larry (JDW), Nuneaton, 13/11/12. Solid, rounded, lemon-zested tang. Orange peel and pepper over biscuit crumbs. Hints of Sorachi-like old shrivelled tangerines and anise. Grass and herbs in the blender. Good tangy, husky, perfumed but bitter linger. Thick-collared gold draped with milky lace. Ripe tang of satsuma jelly, perfumed coriander on nose. Bit heavy on the perfume but hard to leave alone..
Cask Half Pint – JDW Fest Autumn 2012 - Golden in colour. Malty; toasty malts, caramel. Fruity; some citrus, hints of lemon and soft fruits. Hoppy; earthy hops. Sweetish malty fruity throughout; dryish finish. Drinkable. But is it a Porter? (2012-11-12) Stuu666 (14881) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 10, 2015

Oct/Nov 2012. JDW, Brighton. Pale thin gold. Citric rush - fresh, clean, and invigorating. Very tasty. Very moreish. Lovely. The_Osprey (9159) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2013
Oct 2012 draught Wetherspoons. Weird - golden colour with porter-like flavour. Smokey, vegetable flavour. Didn’t like it that much.

Cask-conditioned at the Commercial Rooms, Bristol, November 2012. Golden coloured, with a lacy white head. Sweet, tangerine fruit, with some vanilla and roasted malts, leading to dryish finish with a trace of fag ash. Good. Finn (8155) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JAN 3, 2013
Penderels Oak, Holborn 1 Nov 12. JDW Festivaløl. Lys gylden. Litt uklar. Nesten ikke skum. Beskjeden fruktaroma. Smaken er syrlig frukt. Tørr syrlig ettersmak. Skjønner ikke hva porternavnet har her å gjøre. Forsøk på å lage en ny stil? ManVsBeer (10954) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 12, 2012
Strange to drink a golden ale with a thick head but tastes like a porter. Has a hopped character. planky84 (3431) - Lee, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 27, 2012
Cask at the George, Croydon. Light hazy gold pour with a white head. Citrus, malt and vanilla nose. Grapefruit, pear and vanilla flavour. Light bitter finish. Kåstå (1272) - Mol, BELGIUM - NOV 18, 2012
Cask at the Counting House in Glasgow.
Clear blond with a small foamy head. The aroma is apricot, caramel and early on there was some medicinal, eucalyptus like notes. The taste is hoppy with a quite dry finish.
