Castle, London. Amber colour, off-white head. Aroma is fruits, wood and some caramel as well as mild floal notes. Flavour is fruits, some caramel and crystal malty crispyness, mild earth as well as some slight wooden and sweet malty notes. Balanced.
On cask at The Bow Bar Summer Beer Festival, 2011. A light blonde colour with a thin white head. Sev didn’t like the nose but I didn’t mind it. A Weetabix cereal aroma with some biscuit notes. Didn’t taste so good though and a little thin. Flavours of barley, puffed wheat and Weetabix again. A dry apple linger. downender (8774) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 4, 2011

Cask (Egham Beer Festival - Summer 2010) - Amber in colour. Malty and fruity aroma with hints of honey. Sweet, fruity and malty taste with honey and a hint of apricot. chriso (7586) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 27, 2010
Cask at Egham United Services Club Beer Festival on 19 August 2010. Clear fresh gold colour. Originally listed as Upham Hunny but subsequently changed to Upham Nectar so, although not specifically mentioned in the commercial description, I presume there is honey involved in this brew. That is evident from the aroma. Lots of honey there. Continues into the flavour but less prominent where it presents as a clean, light golden ale. Probably didn’t show at its best alongside a lot of bigger beers but I guess every festival needs to have some more straightforward, quaffing ales. Which is exactly what this is. No complaints about that - it does what it does perfectly well.
