Bridge House in Belfast (cask): golden beer with thin head. Late hop aroma but not aggressive. Slight dryness is mouthfeel with decent body. Low carbonation. Bitter, low malt character, tastes just short of its 5% abv.

theprof (76) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUL 8, 2015
Cask. Spicy hops predominate in a pleasant aroma. Colour honey gold and paler in the light. I guess the pale malts and extra hops tell in the end. Taste well it fills and coats with a metallic edge to the first sip and good resinous palate. Better than many. And deceptively strong. I would try again if offered.

Leighton (14430) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 5, 2015
Cask at the Sir Michael Balcon, JDW - Ealing, London. Pours clear gold with a frothy-creamy white head. Biscuity pale malts in the nose, with a small dab of fresh butter and accents of lemon rind. Light-medium sweet flavor with more bready malts, dough, biscuits, straw, English yeast. Light bodied, creany, with fine carbonation. Finishes sweet, with more pale and bready malts, dough, very faint buttered biscuit, yeast, slight lemony citrus. Tasty enough gold.

Towey1989 (730) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 28, 2015
UPDATED: AUG 17, 2015 Cask at The Green Dragon, Leek (JDW) A clear golden colour with a foamy white head. Aroma of apple, pear, wet wood, grain, straw, slight bubblegum and some herbal hops. Taste of apple, pear, a little orange, pale malts, straw, some butterscotch, slight yeast, subtle mineral and a little sourness. Medium bodied and a sticky texture. A short, grainy finish with some herbal bitterness. Not the taste I was expecting, quite lagerish with unappealing citrus flavours. Hmmm bland.

Gravity cask at Bedford Beer Festival. Light, almost straw colour. Nose dominated by sulphur with some Lotus biscuit spread in toast. Tastes less exciting than I’d hoped: astringent bittersweet with increased bitterness on the finish. There is a wave of sulphur in the aftertaste. It’s great to have a properly well-crafted Burton beer but the sulphur notes, while gentle and balanced, are still too much for me.
