Cask Coditioned, voted Best of Banbury Beer Festival 2003. Orange Amber in colour, floral in aroma. Amazingly well balanced in hops and floral fruity notes, light malts complete the overall effect. Good drinking bitter. Next is the visit to the Brewery to present them with the award, shame :-). omhper (25723) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JAN 21, 2002
Sampled cask conditioned. Amber coloured. Rich aromatichoppy smell. Light bodied, dry and fruity. Notes of hay, delicate light malt profile, excellent flowery, fruity hop flavour. Sparkling mouth feel. A top class bitter, remarkably flavourful for being only 3.8% TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 24, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2005 Pint poured at The George at London Bridge. Pours a light yellow, a small head that quickly disappears. Aroma has the right level of hops and is very fruity. Extremely smooth in the mouth and absolutely delicious to taste - those fruity hops coming through strongly. A shame I only had time for one, but I will be back for more!

UPDATED: JUN 28, 2005 Gravity cask at Red Lion, Snargate. Even better than I remember this beer. Full on hops and a rounded fruitiness and body. Really one of my favourite beers in the world when it is in this condition. Had it the night before and it was very good, but this had improved by the following afternoon MrWalker (926) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUN 3, 2005

One of my fav session ales of all. Burtonised aroma and plenty of "dishwater" (isinglass) as a perfect session beer should. Plenty of raw basic bitterness and a slightly sweet aftertaste craving for more (which I had).
A very hard beer to rate, it’s almost perfectly balanced so nothing really stands out and yet it does it’s job so well. It’s fruity but with enough bitterness to balance it. It is a much better beer on cask that out of the bottle!
