Cask gravity at CPBF 2014. It pours clear golden with a small white head. The nose is dank, earthy, must, barnyard, citrus peel and sweaty. The taste is bitter, piney, resin, oily, hop astringency, varnish and citrus fruits with a dry, bitter finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Decent hoppage, but smells musty.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
[10/6/13] Cask at CASK Pub & Kitchen in London. Clear golden. Aroma is a bit on the weak side but has some hops, citric and tropical, with overripe fruits and a yeasty note. Flavor has a bit of sweetish malt, light graininess, yeasty notes, fruity hops and a finish with mild bitterness. Light to medium-bodied. Decent but nothing spectacular.

Cask (handpump) at Langtry’s, Nottingham on 14 October 2014. Straw colour. Thin white head. Very leafy and tropical on the nose. Extremely juicy on the palate. Decent firm grip too. Fruity aftertaste lingers together with a firm bitterness. Just a touch too much residual sweetness for my taste.
