Cask (Gallows Bird, Espoo, Fest2013)
Smells like it will be a bit of a watery bitter. Grainy, some bitter hops. Body thinnish. Quite a nice grainy body, soft light grains. Some vegetal aspects to the aroma later. Perfectly adequate light session bitter, but too unexciting for me.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cask conditioned at Merton Winter Beer Fest ’13. Gold with white head. Drinking this you would never put the ABV at 3.6%. Really good depth to the malts, biscuity, crisp then lemony, citrus hops. There is a general light sweetness smoothing everything out. Just an excellent beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask at The Rake, quite small creamy head, clear gold yellow colour, aroma of tropical fruits and herbs with a touch of malt in the back, flavour is a melange of white and tropical fruits, with some flowers, strong mellow bitterness, medium pleasant bitter sour aftertaste. Being pale and hoppy is a great combination.

Hazy hay yellow, white head. Aroma has really clear andc intense hoppiness with grapefruit, citrus and fresh piney soap. Flavour is dry and harsh malty with high bitterness as grapefruity hops. Leaves quite long aftertaste. Superb session beer.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
500ml bottle. Pours very cloudy amber with a small head that reduces quickly. Good hoppy aroma. Some mild tropical fruit flavours quickly buried under mountains of bitter hops and intense grapefruit. An exceptionally long bitter finish. Refreshing and satisfying. Love it.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at Gallows Bird real ale festival. Pale golden in color with thin bubbly head. Grassy bitterness with notes of bloodorange in aroma. A bit dry somehow but with some feeling of fresh cut grass and that grassy bitterness nonetheless. Grassy and slightly woody aftertaste.
