Theydon_Bois (9957) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - AUG 25, 2012
Cask at the Sussex Arms, Twickenham Green - 19/05/12. Golden amber with a thin to medium white head. Fruity hops and sweet malt on the nose, clean fresh aroma. Caramel malt, biscuit, bready, a little yeast, fruity hops - all well balanced. Medium bodied, bitter finish - pleasant drinking!

FatPhil (9618) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 26, 2012
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.

Rune (8497) - Tromsø, NORWAY - AUG 1, 2014
Cask, half pint, by hand-pump at Grove Inn. White head leaving dotted spots on the glass. Clear amber coloured body. Pine and floral hops to the nose. Citrus core to the taste profile followed by dry bitter fruity peels to the ending. Medium bodied. A refreshing thirst quencher, indeed (Huddersfield 09.07.2014).

leaparsons (8323) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 29, 2011
Cask, The Pub, Leicester. Amber gold with an off-white foam. Aromas are caramel and toffee with leafy, green hops and clean, woody yet soft pine. Floral with spiced oranges and fruit tea. Biscuit with mellow grapefruit. Flavours are caramel and biscuit with mellow lemon and pithy grapefruit. Woody and leafy with herbal aspects. Quite green and spicy with grapefruit bitterness and a dry finish. Very good.

Fin (7697) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 5, 2011
Cask, handpump at The Live & Let Live, Cambridge, 03.06.11 Pours mid amber with a white head leaving a light filminess across the top of the beer. Fruity and with a goodly dose of hops on the nose and soft pithy grapefruit and in the mouth with a juicy refreshing grapefruit bite. A great beer to try alongside the Oakham Scarlet Macaw and whilst I preferred the latter I think that this would be easier to drink a session of, very good beer. A7 A4 T8 P4 Ov16 3.9

Scopey (7444) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 30, 2013
Cask at Barley Mo. It pours clear deep amber with a medium beige head. The nose is caramel, toast and candied peel, stewed orange. The taste is soft, caramel, orange, mandarine, apricot, marmalade, with a bitter-sweet finish. Medium body and soft carbonation. Smooth and quaffable. Pretty tasty.

rosenbergh (7416) - 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
