harrisoni (13780) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 10, 2008
Cask gravity at Ealing Beer Festival 2008. Deep russet brown. After being bottled for a day and a half, not in great condition. Some nice toffee and malt. Bit toasty and then some balancing hop on finish. A pretty good premium bitter, plenty of flavour. Bit of plastic maybe, but that could be from the bottle. Decent full fruity malt.

Cask at the Monks Retreat (JDW), Reading. Chestnut with a dense cream head; syrupy malt aroma; lots of earthy malt flavours with some roasted nuts and some sour blackberry fruit; deeply bitter finish. Excellent.

motelpogo (6700) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - OCT 25, 2007

Rastacouere (6131) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 1, 2007
Clear copper, very earthy, caramelly, lightly smoky ale that is frankly very sweet. Grainy on the palate. Creamy full body, but very airy and kinda loose. Failing to balance bitterness gets drowned into the particularly husky finale. Not too good.

Ungstrup (29369) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 15, 2007
Cask at Tennant’s Bar, Glasgow. A slightly hazy amber beer with a dense cream colored head - the head seems to come from a sparkler. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of caramel. The flavor is sweet malty though with hints of butter, leading to a dry bitter finish. The mouthfeel is very smooth.
