On tap at Akkurat. It had a light taste of yeast and flowers. Similar taste, a bit mild but easy to drink.

rarbring (2288) - Linköping, SWEDEN - SEP 27, 2012
Aroma: The smell has honey and peaches in it. Some sour grass.
Appearance: The beer is clouded pale amber, a white rather firm head that leaves no lacing and no curtains.
Taste: The taste is mostly fruity, apricots, lemon, some peel bitterness at the end.
Palate: Little carbonation, watery and with a small body, but rather refreshing a slight dry finish.
Overall: A lawn mower bitter? This beer was a real ale version and claimed to be only 3.8%, and for such low ABV it was not at all bad.
Note: Cask at Oliver Twist. Reviewed 2011-09-14.

mike_77 (5679) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - SEP 22, 2012
Bottle Conditioned. A gusher. Light brown colour. Quite a strong carbonation. Flavour is impaired by the gas but a light malty flavour comes through. Slightly metallic aftertaste.

BlackHaddock (6554) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - SEP 17, 2012
A beautiful sunny afternoon on Friday 7th September 2012 saw my father and I join in R.A.T.2012 (Rail Ale Trail part 2). Split between three bars along the Wolverhampton to Shrewsbury railway line: they had over 50 different beers to try: this was one of them. Half-pint, gravity fed in the fest tent behind ‘The Odfellows’ in Shifnal. Light amber, golden brown, you choose: a white head tried to sit on top, but failed to stay around too long. Not too sure how this became CAMRA Champion Beer a few years back as it wasn’t any better than other beers on the day I tried it. Nice blend of flavours with the hops foremost in the smell and taste stakes. Well balanced and a pleasant enough session beer but nothing to set it apart from the rest of the field.

Finwe (436) - Grankulla, FINLAND - AUG 19, 2012
Cask @ Oliver Twist. Clear copper colour with a white head. Malty, grainy flavour with some grassy hops. Clean, malty flavour with some hops, probably East Kent Goldings. Dry and bitter finish.

finol (3174) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 12, 2012
Cask at Oliver Twist. Pours amber with a white, for a cask ale, big head. Yet again, for a cask ale, bitter taste taste of plilsner like hops and honney.

dynamiteninja (1837) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - MAR 31, 2012
Bottle conditioned, verified by CAMRA. Gold body. Retentive medium white head. Floral, fresh wild raspberries, hoppy. Gentle bittersness edged off with some bitter raspberry tang. Dry finish. Soft mouthfeel. Syrupy body. Very good summer beer.

tombyars (1621) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - MAR 12, 2012
Sampled this prize winning bitter in the Last Post, Paisley (JDW) in November 2008. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear pale amber in colour with a thin milky white head. Strong, dry dusty hop presence in the aroma with a thin but clean mouthfeel. Good lacing throughout. Pale malt base gives a very slight malty note which is soon overwhelmed and undermined by a strong smack of whole hop fields. Hop resins are quite intense in a citric floral bitterness, which continues well into the finish. A major session bitter for REAL hop lovers. Voted CAMRA’s champion beer of Britain in 2008! Really surprised at that result because it’s not that spectacular - or am I missing something! Surely there must be better bitters out there?
