Tasting Summary

These comments are the opinion of the individual reviewer and represent what they thought of the beer on a particular day in a particular pub. If a review is less favourable, it may be because the beer suffered somewhere in the supply chain between them and the brewery.

IanExcellent12 Jan 2008 Peach/apricot aroma. Lovely condition, strong golden peachy beer that rather stunned me.

The Rake, Southwark, Central London

IanGood21 Nov 2006 Gold colour with thin off white head. Amarillo hop aroma, bit of ashtray. Frankly a bit thin in mouth to carry the hop. Peachy fruit and then aromatic hop finish. Lacks real depth. It's 5% ABV, but it needs more body. Bit of sweetness from peachy fruit and alcohol. Good drying finish. Just needs more in the mouthfeel as the aroma and finish are good. Too watery in mouth for me.
