RichardW (1461) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - MAR 22, 2013
cask, Font, Manchester. Floral, hoppy, creamy and beautiful. Way too easy to drink, superbly proportioned, balanced to perfection. An absolute cracker

spacecube (760) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 14, 2013
Pours slightly hazy orange with slightly foamy head. In the aroma floral & citrus hops, orange peel & mango, with mild biscuit, stale bread malt character, Well balanced bitterness but lacking a bit of character.

Bottle at home. Earthy floral hop nose. Light golden yellow colour. Persistent white loose head. Flavour is nutty malt and rounded earthy floral hop. Very drinkable. Soft carbonation.

kwik-lime (1259) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 13, 2013
Earthy hops balanced by a sweet finish, decent beer but I found it just a touch cloying.

JK54B (1539) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 11, 2013
Cask Real Ale tastede at Gallows Bird RAF. Malty nose. Pale thin head. Golden color. Malty and hoppy taste. At the end hoppy bitterness. Too hoppy for me.

DruncanVeasey (7112) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JAN 31, 2013
500ml bottle. Mid-clouded orange gold with a whipped egg white top. Fruit Salad chew, melon, Feta and lime peel aroma. Monkey nut, dunked biscuit and almond maltiness lurking beneath slightly sharp limey hop and bristling leafiness. Lean and balanced.

RexTalionis (2356) - FINLAND - JAN 26, 2013
Cask at Gallows Bird real ale festival. Amber, thin off-white head. Some floral notes and hints of malts in aroma. Dry, like biting into a piece of wood. at first. Cardboard. Didn’t work for me.

rosenbergh (6585) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 25, 2013
Cask at the Gallows Bird XVI Real Ale Festival, Espoo, Finland. Clear deep golden colour with almost no head. Window cleaner, floral hops and... hmm... Not much more really. Flavour is sweet hoppy with lots of dryness... that's a bit strange. Hoppy. Thin. One dimensional. Drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
