mR_fr0g (3999) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 6, 2014
Cask gravity at the Watford beer fest 2014. Orange light amber coloured pour with a lasting loose greyish head. Aroma is wet grass. Silage, stale grains and bit of spicy rye. Flavour follows, wet grass, and sweet nutty malt. Palate is watery, thin and sweet. Weird beer. Not a fan.

Fra gravity-cask på St Albans Beer & Cider festival 25 Sep 14. Mørk gylden. Lavt skum som blir helt borte. Svak søt fruktaroma. Smaken tynn. En kan ane litt plommer. Ellers lite. Fjøspreg lurer i bakgrunnen.

jjsint (927) - Ely, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - MAR 17, 2014
Cask @ Bedford Arms, Bedford. Light ruddy brown, thin with a bit of wispy beige head. Pleasant aroma of raisins, malt, toast. Taste is a crisp sweetness with a lingering bittersweet finish. Pleasant but not overly engaging, one to try and then move on methinks.

olio (6530) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 4, 2014
Cask @ O’Connel’s, Tampere.
Pours dark copper-red color with a small head. Aroma is nutty and a bit dry malty, some dry fruits also, very faint hops. Flavor is stuffy with nuts, malts and hay. Should have been a lot fruitier and hoppier.
