Dark yellow to orange, still pour with little head and almost no lacing. Aromas of cereal adn fruit, orchard but not too heavy. Taste is moderate grainy and lightly sweet. Palate is light and it was a bit flat even for a cask beer. Overall I was expecting more.

Grumbo (1518) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - AUG 12, 2016
Cask at the Green Man (GK), opposite Gt Portland St tube station, London. Pours golden with an average white head. Aroma of fresh hop, straw, light citrus and a touch of spice. Medium sweetness, light bitterness. Towards medium body, light/creamy texture, average carbonation level. Finish is sweeter, slight bitter fruit. Not bad.

Cask at the Pineapple, slightly hazy gold with a lacing head, malty nutty nose, initially dry-sweet malty body is rapidly overwhelmed by an acrid bitterness.

kwik-lime (1715) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 21, 2015
Cask at the Hole in the Wall, Waterloo. Flattish, citrusey but didn’t particularly enjoy the hop character and largely uninspiring.

The_Osprey (6607) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 22, 2014
Cask at Draft House. Hazy orange, still, small foamy white head, light lacing. Aroma is musty, lemon, bubblegum. Body is medium, smooth, low carbonation. Taste - slight soured milk, taste is very milky, soft malt, sweet and biscuity. Quaffable. I can see why it has won awards at festivals - drinkable and different.
