Cask at CBC, Covent Garden on 25th September 2016. Clear amber with lasting off-white foam. Intense nutty aroma with almond and hazelnut. Juicy berry fruits in-mouth with rich and intense nuttiness- hazelnut. A hint of ginger. A lush blend of tangy fruits and nutty malts dominate the finish. Zingy mouthfeel and a fair amount of body. Superb!

Cask at the Swan in the Rushes, Loughborough. Golden with a creamy white head. Citrus aroma. Citrus and hoppy flavours with a nice dry hoppy finish. Smooth and drinkable, with a creamy mouthfeel. Nekronos (4174) - Xalapa, MEXICO - JAN 29, 2006
I thought It was going to be creamy or at least blonde, and it was like orange, like a medium dark bitter. Perhaps something changed but it was no clear at all. RichardGretton (4770) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 28, 2003
Pale beer with a lager like aroma that has hints of citrus. The flavour also is very lager like. Overall the beer initially tasted like savlon, but in the end was very pleasant. TomSpears (65) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - SEP 5, 2005
Cask in a Wetherspoon. This is becoming very popular. Good sharp citric bite and a lasting honeyed tickling swallow.

A golden straw coloured beer with a thick, creamy white head. The nose is light and slightly yeasty at first, but then the floral hoppiness comes through with a vengeance! This is then accompanied by a sweet fruitiness similar to that of peaches. The taste is light and bitter with the dry, floral hoppiness being the predominant flavour. As in the aroma, there is a hint of peach fruitiness towards the end. The finish is light and bitter. (Draught - Lloyd’s Bar @ The Globe, King’s Lynn). Heidbummer (811) - SCOTLAND - AUG 3, 2016
OK. We’re all a bit craft beer right now. Sometimes you just need to go old school. Pint at the Cask and Barrel. Pours golden/amber with generous creamy head Smells of caramel and malt, then on the taste is nicely bitter, hints of toffee and lime. Almost IPA-ish, but at base, a bloody drinkable bitter/ale. Bravo. Sessionable to the max. omhper (25541) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - APR 16, 2002
Sample cask conditioned. Flowery nose. Grapefruit aroma. Light- to medium bodied. Soapy hoppiness, sparkling mouthfeel. Dry, salty bitter finish. A nice drinkable cask bitter with an American touch.chriso (7586) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 5, 2004
The bottled version appears less flavourful, and lacks the freshness and sparkling mouthfeel of the cask version. This rating is for the cask version.
A very pale, very hoppy beer. However, it also has a cornucopia of fruit aromas and flavours - mainly citrus -, together with lots of aromatic complexity. Good balance of fruit and bite on the plate and a nice clean dry finish. Rather good. Handpump, The Leading Light, Faversham, April 2003.

Bottled. Blond with a soft white head. Crisp, citrus hop aroma. Clean hop lines the transfer from hop oil consistency to a dry hop finish. Very attractive pale ale.
