6th August 2008. On tap at GBBF. Frothy golden beer - pronounced honey start follows through to a honeyish mid and (wait for it) a honeyish finish. Just a little hoppiness at the end.

Cask, third pint, at The Cains Bar, GBBF. Pale, dark golden. Nice lacing on the glass. Light smell of citric hops. Taste of dark caramel with a discreet bitter ending. Contains some hints of sweet raisin. A bit oily in the mouth (07.08.2008).

albertane (377) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - AUG 27, 2008
Cask at Doctor Duncan’s, Liverpool. I think this is my favourite of Cains’ beers. It has a nice rounded fruitiness with apricots, berries, citrus and possible just a hint of tropical fruits and some nice sharp hops in the finish. It’s not a knockout, but it’s not bad at all.
