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 (6658) - Tampere, 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

mjs (4535) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 25, 2013
(Cask at Gallows Bird Real Ale Festival ’13) The beer poured deep golden and clear. Its head small and white. Aroma had fruitiness, sweetness and malts. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, sweetness, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was hoppy and bitter. A good but a bit unbalanced beer.

Cask @ Gallows Bird Real Ale Festival 2013

Pours clear dark orange with a bubbly head. Aroma of grassy hops, hints of malts and fruits. Taste is smooth with hints of grassy hops, grapefruit, lemon and fruity notes. Finish is slightly hoppy with hints of lemon, sweetness and fruits. Okay, quite balanced and hoppy APA.

johninmelb (1126) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 6, 2013
Pleasantly floral nose with kiwi, rosehip and plain old lemon notes. Pours a hazy medium gold with a thin but persistant head. Flavour is big, bold and fat with juicy, spicy notes of pine and grapefruit underpinned by a hint of sugarpuffs. Very nice.

JFURYCAT (1079) - East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 17, 2012
Pretty good pale. Good citrus aroma. Too bittered I think. And this is mr. Ibu speaking. Good starter for their excellent ipa.

Desverger (1783) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 1, 2012
(cask@Rake Bar’s Bristol Beer Festival) Pours amber, thick white head and good lacing. Caramel malt and citrus hop balance/blend is good. Not bad.

Gravicask (PBBF2012, Fri)
Herbal grassy aroma. Rich orange, small brief head. Fairly aggressive bitterness, grassy, a bit astringent and grapefruity. Does have some sweetish malts though. Soft palate, carbonation low. Long grassy bitter finish. A pretty good old-fashined bitter bitter.
