First tasted this in the Esquire House, Glasgow (JDW) in June 2007. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear golden yellow in colour with a very slight green tint. Short floral hop note on the nose. Thin mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malts give a fruity citric note of lemon and lime. Strong dusty prickle of lemony hop resins long in the aftertaste. Finish is dry and hoppy with citrus pith, tart in the palate. An ok session bitter. RichardW (1813) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - MAR 18, 2010
Cask, Linton Holme, Carlisle. Fruity and slightly dry, prickly on the back of the throat. Has a reasonably hoppy, fresh aroma and comes across as a fairly rounded beer. Good session ale. cgarvieuk (24536) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 26, 2009

Cask, ’The Joy of Six’ Merchantfest ’08, Rugby, as Highwood H&G. Headless orange amber. Sickbowl aroma, with some hop mustiness and sweet vegetables. Messy. Creeping hop character mingled with vegetable water, sulphur. Earthy, dank, nutty and wrong. Or is it? Carlus12 (361) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 13, 2007
Cask. Holborn JDW’s. Golden colour / thin white head. Fruity aroma with loads of hops. Taste is hoppy and well balanced. A light, refreshing and drinkable bitter. Worth a try!

Cask Handpump at the Alexandra, Derby 12/07/2007
Hoppy and slightly citrus aroma. Golden coloured fruity hoppy and a little sour. Some dryness and roast in a crisp finish. maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JUL 14, 2007
Cask conditioned - handpump - Alexandra, Derby. A dark gold coloured beer with a crisp hoppy aroma and a good hit of biscuity notes. The taste is light and drinkable and again there’s plenty of biscuit flavours., which actually spoils it a touch. MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 27, 2007
A Mes rate:
Cask at Baker Street ’Spoons. Drinks above it’s strength if you ask me yet is perfectly chugable. Full of hoppy goodness and it does all you could ask of it. I’m sure, served properly this would be considerably better.
