[email protected] Amber colour, small white head. Aroma is caramel malts, fruits, wood, toffee and some earthy notes. Flavour is very nice wooden, mild maltyness as well as some cereal and caramel. Very nice fruity and wooden aftertaste with some mild spicyness as well.

500ml bottle from Greenhams in Ryde: BBD 23rd Feb 18. Poured into a UK pint sleeve at home on 13th Apr 17. Having a ’random tasting session’ with myself today: Belgium, USA, Japan, Spain and Scotland represented so far: Isle of Wight being the fifth beer in the game. Beige head on a clear, light amber body. Glad they mentioned ’Coriander’ on the label because I was trying to decide what the extra dimention was in the nose and taste: not too sure coriander would have been my guess to be honest. Light citrus notes balanced out by a good malty base and those coriander spicy notes. Liked it.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 22, 2008
Golden colored, little yellow head. Aroma is rich with flowery hops, even some caramel here, good aroma. Medium bodied. Flavor is also fine with this dominating flowery American-typed hops. Aftertaste is hoppy with American flowers still. Weird but good cask.

imdownthepub (14469) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 30, 2013
Cask conditioned at Far From the Madding Crowd, Oxford. Amber with white head. Quite a fruity beer, flowery and quite hoppy in a tropical fruit manner. Good depth, a hint of herbs on the tip of the tongue. A decent beer.
