Cask at GBBF 2012, London. Pours hazy brown with a weak head. Plenty of moderate, tart cherries in the nose. Light to medium sweet flavor, some cherry pit bitterness, faint leather, somewhat juicy. Light bodied with soft carbonation. Modest sweet finish, some good tartness, nice rounded cherry character. Very good.

GBBF. Hazy red-amber beer, no real head. Light palate, a little dry and slightly crisp. Mild sourness with seltzer minerals and a touch of strawberry sherbet. Interesting! Finishes semi dry with mild citrus fruit. Different!

Scopey (7183) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 20, 2012
Cask at GBBF 2012. It pours murky deep red-brown, with no head. The nose is light malt vinegar, dark fruit, red berry and sour cherry. The taste is sour cherry, sherbet, tart lemon, juicy fruit and some jam, with a juicy-tart finish. Light-medium body, low carbonation and mild sourness. Smooth, light and very easy drinking.
