Hippoman (75) - Durham, ENGLAND - JUN 15, 2015
Cask at The Bishop’s Mill, Durham, £1.99/pint. Pours dark amber/copper with foamy white head. Aroma promises citrus which flavour fails to deliver as it is cloyingly bitter on an overly thick palate and little else. Not very good at all.

Nice deep gold thick tanned head. Smells sweet and fruit. Taste tart frutiness balanced with a nicefoll sweetness. Balanced and very flavourful and tasty.

Svesse (6885) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAY 16, 2015
(Cask at Crown Rivers JDW, Heathrow Airport, London, 26 Apr 2015) Amber colour with frothy, off-white head. Fruity, hoppy nose with orange peel, citrus, caramel and a touch of resin. Fruity, hoppy taste with notes of caramel, treacle-toffee, orange peel and a slightly resiny bitterness in the finish. Medium body, with a certain sweetness. Tasty, with a fresh hop character. Nice one.

The_Osprey (3031) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 16, 2015
Cask at The Pommelers Rest. Dirty orange, slight haze, still, small foamy off-white head, full lacing. Aroma is lime, soap. Body is medium, smooth, low carbonation. Taste has light lime, straw, resin, soft bitterness. A little soapy here and there, but pretty nice overall. It didn’t complement my fried breakfast at all unfortunately.

jmgreenuk (5715) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - MAY 16, 2015
Hand pulled at the Pump House, Shirley, Solihull. Poured a medium amber with a long lasting frothy white head. The aroma is grapefruit zesty citrus. The flavour is acidic, light sour with a metallic hop, citrus, dry sour yeast and thoroughly unpleasant floral bitter palate. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. As I ticked this there was a guy next to me returning his pint saying it was undrinkable. He wasn’t far wrong. Some people have rated this highly and others say it smells like cats piss! Maybe there is an infected batch out there, but either way, this was pretty poor and I drank just a couple of mouthfuls. Drain pour.

gegwilson (1939) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 4, 2015
Cask in the Plimsoll Line, Redcar. Pours a slightly hazy amber with a cream head. The aroma is mild pineapple. The taste is pine with pear drop and caramel. A slightly dry finish. A little watery, but enjoyable enough.

Sjohnh (429) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 3, 2015
Classic copper brown looking ale with a good white head. Really good malt presence with some caramel sweetness but also delivering nut and umami.

jeevan (110) - SCOTLAND - MAY 3, 2015
Cask at JDW. Pours golden with a good creamy head. Hoppy citrus aroma. Delicious fruity pine hop taste with a quite full and balanced pale malt bill. Refreshing and very nice.

bobinlondon (1260) - Harrow, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2015
Hand pulled cask at the Moon Under Water (JDW) Watford. Amber/ gold with a lively white head. Another solid USA guest brewer effort from Adnams, with more than ample hop punch. Excellent.
