13th Nov 2012: hand-pulled half pint in The Crown Inn, Oakengates.
Clear amber with an off-white head that left some impressive lacing.
The nose and taste were of fruity hops and semi-sweet malty molasses, the body depth fine. The blend is fairly well balanced but overall it was just a run-of-the-mill seasonal for Poppy time.

Sweetish popcorny aroma. Light palate. Easy drinker. Light malty bready taste, a bit boring.

On tap at the brewery. Smooth and light. Slightly smooth malty body, refreshing with nice malt and ale characteristics. Round and malty with a moderate bitterness. nice. ThirstyBird (2914) - Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 27, 2016
Growler from the brewery. Pours alight amber color with a loose light tan head. The smell is fruity, a bit of caramel, biscuit. The taste is fruity, some caramel, toasted malt ending quit dry and a bit roasty even. Light+ in body with soft less than average level of carbonation. It’s alright but not Tring’s best offering. redders1974 (1401) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - OCT 2, 2015

Polypin at the Chiltern Countryside and Food Festival. Amber with a middling white head. Sweet and malty with some fruitiness- maybe orange. Not bad by Tring’s standards. minutemat (5396) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - DEC 16, 2013
Cask @ Ring O Bells, Compton Martin for Warners / Parlophone Christmas bash. Average but pleasant little number with slight bitter finish and mild fruity moments but not enough to get me ordering another. Beese (2669) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 10, 2013
Cask at The Watford Beer Festival 2013. Poured a clear amber with a rocky white head. Aroma of berries, orange peal and caramel. Grassy hop flavours with peach and biscuity malt. Finish was bread, hop resin and dried fruit. Very good, for the style. Theydon_Bois (19193) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - OCT 24, 2013
