2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
From cask@Charlie’s Bar, Copenhagen. A bright, yellow colored beer with a tiny greyish head. Weak malt aroma, some apple-fruitiness and a faint note of wood and cork. Taste has a dry, mouldy malt character, and a sharpish bitterness that last all the way through. Medium-bodied, dry and quite refreshing.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A crisp light, gold ale with a white film.
Orangey hops with crisp underlying cereals on the nose. It begins with a mild bitterness full of lemony acidity with puffs out into a rich, lemon cheesecake finish with a hearty dose of malts. (Pairing this with salted snacks really brought out lighter, floral flavours.)
It was quite thin but easy to drink and it stood up well. Interesting, a great big fruity lift. Lightly refreshing and quaffable.

Cask at Wellington Arms, Bedford. Gold with a small white head. Faint aroma, sweet and with a sulphurous hint. Sweet fruity taste, very delicious, with earthy malts in attendance. Slight bitter finish. Good.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Half pint, cask by air pressure dispense at Abbotsford Bar enjoying ourselves on Friday eve in Edinburgh. Plain golden, naked body. Has got a smooth touch of tropical fruits in aroma and flavour. Lack of bitterness, however quite filling and dry in the mouth. Refreshing, but otherwise boring [14.11.2008].

A Mes rate:
Gravicask @ Planet Thanet. My first real shocker of what was an excellent festival. Butter, eggs, sulphur and diacetyl. Only vaguely hoppy. Pretty rank.
