Cask. Very light amber/gold. Smell and taste are pure banana bread. I love it, but I wonder if this is intended or whether it was just something with this batch.

Cask @ O’Hara’s Freehouse
Aroma is fruity with peaches and hay. Flavour is rather fruity too with peach, some mando and some hay. Quite fruity and rich for a real ale.

erickok (5397) - Leuven, BELGIUM - AUG 9, 2012
Light misty golden body and creamy off white head. Very pleasant mild but pronounced hoppyness. Floral, bit of citrus and a well developed white bread malty base. Green and alive. Active small carbonation. Pretty significant bitterness, but pleasant. More pronounced taste than I expected with this low abv. Long hoppy dry aftertaste. Very well made beer, laden with hops and bitterness. Not your average Golden Ale! (50 cl bottle)

Clear amber color, good off-white head. Very sweet fruity hoppyness in the nose. Light-bodied. Pine needles in the hoppy flavor. Long resiny bitterness in the aftertaste. Nice real ale.

(Cask at Black Door, 20120715) The beer poured golden and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had fruitiness and malts. Palate was medium bodied with low carbonation. Flavours were hops, fruitiness, pine, malts and strong bitterness. Aftertaste was hoppy and bitter. Hops were quite dominating and the overall impression was musty.

lusikka (7689) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 24, 2012
Cask @ O’Connell’s, Tampere.
Pours a slightly unclear copper orange colour with a frothy white head with good retention. Aroma of floral hops, pine and grapefruit. Flavour of biscuity malts, strong floral hops, grapefruit and delicate sweetness. Medium bodied and soft carbonation. Tingling grapefruity and high bitter finish. I like the bitterness here.
