Cask. Clear gold with a thin dense head.
A rather weak aroma of leaf and floral hops.
The leafy hops appear immediately upon tasting. Otherwise quite earthy.
Cask feel.

Used to be a regular guest in one of my locals but rarely seen now: this is a review of a hand pulled pint in The Plough, Shifnal (22nd Feb 2012).

Fairly dull colouring of gold/blonde beer with a full but thinning head of off-white foam; could look a lot better and sometimes does, or at least it used too.

Nose had a mild hop feel, floral with a mini citrus finish.

The taste is hop first and last, with a malt content that prevents the beer being too bitter our sour and allowing some sweetness to equal out the floral hops that dominate the initial flavours.

Pleasant and worth trying. I had mates who wouldn't leave the pub until the barrel was empty a few years ago (it didn't have the same effect on me).

The colour is deep yellow – gold; the head is ½ fingers thick, white and airy.

The mild smell is a little perfumed with sour earthy flavours of iodine.

The taste is earthy with sourish notes of iodine (did I really get a bitter, not a lambic?), a naughty sharp bitterness and some malty touches. The aftertaste is bitter with lots of minerals and some sourness.

The carbonation is mild. Minimal sized bubbles.

I suspected that this beer was infected or damaged in some way, but the very knowledgeable staff at Pub Oliver Twist (in Stockholm) insisted that the beer had those flavours when the case was opened.

Tasted by half-pint at my local JDW pub, the Half Moon, East End London.

A: pours a slightly hazy, pale amber hue, coming with a tightly frothy beer head sustaining very well.
S: thick and richly hoppy--grassy, light citrus-peel, apple-ish+cherry-ish perfumy fruitiness... big hops rest on top of a solid biscuity malty base. Solid, rich, very enticing~~
T: flowery, a little less citric but slightly sharp hoppyness comes hand in hand with a moderate biscuity malt undertone; a fich flow of spicy Goldings hops expands at the back of the palate, bringing a slightly warmish hoppy impact on top of a bitter-sweet edge from rich maltiness... The finish is just slightly bitter but lingers well, showing more hops than bitterness overall.
M&D: balanced body, with good portion of hops which helps to strike a deeper depth through the lighter malty interface. Luckily, it's tasted on form. A lively pale ale with an impressive hoppy depth which makes it even in line with English IPA. Solid and delicious!

(Cask)Caramelly/toffee malts, citric hoppy acidity/bitterness, lightly honeyed character, lightly sticky and lightly bitter. Pretty nice all round, but not too over the top in most departments, solid cask bitter, nothing stands out for me however. Simple but nice.
