Ungstrup (33990) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 14, 2006
[Cask as Cains Cask Lager at GBBF 2005] A hazy pale yellow beer with a white head. The aroma is soury grassy, while the flavor is a sweet and sour mixture with some malty notes. I don’t like it.

Cask. Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is sweet malts, fruity and floral notes along with some mild grains and bready notes. Flavour is grains, some floral, hebral and grassy notes along with a mild strange fruitiness to it.

Cask at Bon Accord, Glasgow. Deep golden. Sweet with buttery malt and medium body. Soft and sugary with well structured malt and low bitterness. Well made, but too sweet.

harrisoni (16927) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 8, 2005
Cask at GBBF 2005. Gold colour, creamy head from using a tight sparkler on the dispense, some fruit and sherbert but got some fairy liquid flavours with odd fruit. Bizarre and disappointing as the rest of the Cains range is pretty good

imdownthepub (12909) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 2, 2006
Cask at a Wetherspoons. Pale gold with short lived head. Really not sure about this, sweet grainy beer with a thin sweaty flavour. Like lemon fairy liqued. Sugary finish.

DJMonarch (9179) - Northwich, Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAR 1, 2006
Cask Handpump at the Brewery Tap, Liverpool 11/06/2005 Golden coloured hoppy and crisp on the palate. Banana fruit flavour. Some bitterness and dryness in a full malt finish.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - AUG 7, 2005
Cask conditioned - handpump - GBBF 2005. Apparently this was £3 a pint - bloody hell. A straw coloured beer with a nice white head. The aroma is soapy and watery with a little bit of grass. It also smells ’cold’. The taste is quite watery and lemony. Thin and soapy, wet and woolly - enough said.

Cask (handpump) GBBF, August 2005. Cains must have spent a fair amount of dosh on advertising hype for this beer. For me, at least, the reality was rather more mundane. Gold colour. Right sparkler. High carbonation. Soft and sweetish. That’s about it for me. Not very interesting.
