jackl (4560) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JAN 13, 2012
Golden orange color, small head. The nose is full of honey and citrus fruit. The taste is lightly sweet and bready, very chill and easy. The body is light, carbonation soft. Overall, an OK beer. Not exciting, but nice.

Beersiveknown (2849) - NORTHERN IRELAND - SEP 27, 2011
UPDATED: JUN 24, 2012 tried dry hopped with sunrise at Factoberfest 2011.Sunrise gave a good blank slate on which the hop could work its magic with grassy malt and caramel sweetness being taken over by the dry hoppiness and peach of the galaxy Cask at grain barge. Mid brown with Fruity malt, medium carbonation.

imdownthepub (10124) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 18, 2011
Cask conditioned at Far From the Madding, Oxford. Gold with white head. Fruity, peach, apricot, sweetish golden ale. A little thin on the palate with a pronounced bready character. Some yeasty, slightly tinny hints. Juicy finish. It’s fine.

rlgk (10254) - Göteborg/Jönköping, SWEDEN - MAY 12, 2011
Cask at Euston Tap, London. Golden, nice lasting offwhite head. Fruity aroma. Malty fruity, somewhat strange flavor. Guess there is something with this brewery that does not appeal to me.

Rune (7956) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAR 24, 2011
Half from the cask menu at Euston Tap. Clear amber body. Filmy layer at the top blanketing the glassware. Fine smell of hoppy fruits. Fruit-malty taste profile. Smooth bitter end. Likable (London, 19.03.2011)

Leighton (10683) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 18, 2011
Cask at the Euston Tap. Pours clear gold with a foamy head. Slightly sour, doughy malt nose, with a bit of toast. Buttery bread flavor, slight wood or something, mild sugars, mild bitters. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Slightly sweet finish, more dough and faint butter notes. So so.

@ Grain Barge. Amber with a slight haze. Caramel and slightly toasty malt. Toasty with some woody hops and light fruitiness.
