Cask @ Ascot Beer Festival 2009. A good amber orange colour with a thin white head. The aroma is all hops with a hint of citrus, the taste is dry with a light bitterness. dnas2 (705) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - AUG 18, 2009
Cask handpump at The Regal (Wetherspoons), Cambridge.
Clear copper with a good-sized head. Cereal and hops in the scent. Some carbonation, a bit dry. Caramel and biscuit malts in the mouth. Quite nice at first but then turns quite bland. Gethinbeer (2452) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - JUL 5, 2009
On tap at the Kings Head, Monmouth. Clear amber colour with a thin white head and good lace. Bad aroma, smells rather like stale manure. Hoppy hints and bit of fruity pear tangyness. A clear decent beer with a nice flavour. BeerViking (4795) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 3, 2009
Cask/handpump at Lord Moon of the Mall, London. Red-brown with a lacy white head, smells of malt, fruit, beeswax, nice balance on the tongue of grassy hops, bitterness, slightly plummy malt and nuts. Bitter finish. Very nice session bitter. johndoughty (5449) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 28, 2009
Bottle. Lively upon opening and poured with a big head that hung around for a long time. Some nuttiness. Not bad but rather predictable.

UPDATED: APR 25, 2011 1)Cask, The Victoria Inn, Rugby. Brassy dark gold lidded with white. Musty celery-hinting aroma with shrubby Germanic touches. Cherry and marzipan peeping through caramel, not a lot happening. Big floury finish. Not great.
2) The Shoes. Rerate? Swish of fern and mineral sourness, eggy dough sprinkled with vanilla; sultana. Weetabix afters. Clear bronze with firm nitro collar. Sour mineral, slight woodland aroma. Dull and decent. 353612. RichardGretton (4770) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 28, 2008
Bottle. Brown beer with a strong head. The aroma is mildly sour and dry, and the flavour is sour and dry. Overall a very average beer. MiP (15667) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - SEP 9, 2008
Cask, 3.9% at GBBF08. Clear chestnut colour. Small stable white head. Weak caramelly malt flavour. Quite thin, but OK flavour. DonMagi (5593) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 19, 2008
Cask in the 3 judges. Aroma is malty, floural small citrus hints. Taste is similar with grassy hops dominating, tasty enough and sessionable. cgarvieuk (24515) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 18, 2008
