Fin (9601) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 9, 2008
Cask at The Swan with Two Nicks, Worcester, 08-03-08 Pours golden with thin white head, in fact itís actually a warm golden colour. Thereís a sort of icing (on the top of a cake) sort of flavour to this, some honey but lacking in hoppiness and bitterness, itís fine enough.

Sigmund (6719) - Tau, NORWAY - JUN 11, 2007
Cask conditioned at The Lord Rosebery, Scarborough. ABV was 5.0%. Golden colour, like the name says crystal clear. Low creamy head. Very moderate aroma, nothing stands out. Very dry and "dusty" mouthfeel, a slight acidity in the moderate flavour. Not impressive.
