john44 (3402) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 30, 2017
Cask Pint at Wibbas Down (JDW), Wimbledon, London in Apr 2010 - Amber (chestnut-brown) in colour. Malty; sweet malts, caramel. Hoppy; grassy and slightly earthy hops. Fruity; mildly citrus orange. Sweet fruity malty throughout with some bitterness in the finish Rather too sweet. (2010-04)

kwik-lime (2044) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 19, 2016
Cask at JDWs in Surbiton. Now up to 5% but doesn’t taste like it. Grassy hops, light citrus and quite a dry, bitter finish. Nice beer.

mr_h (5946) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - JUL 10, 2016
Cask, 1/2 pint, hand-pulled, Three Judges, Glasgow (28 May 2016), grassy, citrus aroma, deep amber with a thin bubbly head and no lacing, orange, toffee flavoury, dry, bitter finish.

AshtonMcCobb (6916) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 20, 2016
On cask at the Guildford Arms. Appearance - deep amber to red with a decent head. Nose - a hint of stewed apples. Taste - oranges and biscuits. Orange liqueur even. Bitter orange pith on the end. Palate - close to medium bodied with a tangy texture and a long dry bitter finish. Overall - very interesting if a bit gnarly.

Cask at the Guildford Arms. 5%. Pours clear amber with a thick white head. Aromas of biscuit, faint orange, toffee. Taste is more of the same. Clean finish. Not bad, if not particularly exciting.

Stuu666 (14843) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 17, 2016
Cask at the Guildford arms. Pours clear amber, nose is burnt toffee, biscuit, pine, taste is dry, toffee, light fruit, quite bitter.

3.1
Vladivostok (491) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - NOV 21, 2015
UPDATED: NOV 23, 2015 Up to 5% now. Dark-ish bitter with a strong citrus character and a competing flavour of (very) sweet malt. All finished with a typically sharp and bitter aftertaste. Citrus is not really my thing and somehow the beer doesn’t seem to balance out that well although I’m sure plenty of drinkers will find it more to their taste than I did.

joe19612 (3074) - camberley, Surrey, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2015
Ascot 2015. Pours a clear brown colour with a white head, aroma is malt with some caramel, taste is bitter with dry finish.

3.4
The_Osprey (9157) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 2, 2014
Cask. Dark orange, hazy, small white head. Aroma has orange and lemon. Body is light, pretty foamy, no carbonation. Taste has straw, stick, toffee malt. Pretty nice.

3.7
wheresthepath (2395) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2014
Cask at the Hope Tap (JDW), Reading at 5%. Attached to the Liberation American Brown Ale tap- it was only after intense pressure that the barman admitted they’d connected up the wrong barrel and it was actually this- damn ’Spoons. Turned out to be a lucky error though as it was a bit of a cracker. Poured deep gold with a thick white head. Lovely smooth and creamy caramel malts up front give a great mouthfeel. There’s a big spicy zing and sweet orange, passion fruit and melon after. Lovely stuff, but still annoyed at missing out a Jersey rate.
