Cask @ quite a few pubs in Inverness these days (woo!!). Spent most of my last hogmanay scooping this at Bogbain Farm (£4 a pint *gasp*). Fantastic rye hop aroma, quality reddish body with a slight off-white head round the edge of glass. Grand hoppy taste, delicious. This an excellent offering from Craig Middleton.

Cask at the Stockbridge Tap. Pours a deep amber. Just off white head. Nice hop and caramel maltiness aroma. Rich malty hoppy balanced flavours + lovely super smooth mouth feel. Rye. Loved this beer on keg, about time I tried it on cask. Certainly doesn’t disappoint.

Garrold (2831) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 24, 2015
Cask. Sheffield Tap. Clear bronze. Dense, thick, creamy, off white head. Lovely, resinous, fruity, spicy hop to this. Get the spicy rye. Taste is gently sweet, turning light bitter. Touch of pepper spice dryness. Body feels a little thin after all of that. Finishes short bitter. Light dry close.

Punkero (79) - FINLAND - MAY 25, 2015
Tap @ TCBW 2015. Gently hopped. Dark. Lovely rye, but wish there would be even more of that. Leaves a funky feeling in the mouth.

Unde (603) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 6, 2015
Reddish brown colour with nice thick head on top and leaves circles of lacing. Aroma has tropical fruits and malts, maybe there is rye but couldn’t point it out. Taste has rye, malts, american hops, citrus, tropical fruits and some forest berries as well. Really exciting taste. Surprisingly full body for a 5% ale, carbonation was quite high. Nice rye ale.

laiti (7695) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 28, 2015
Draught @ Tallinn Craft Beer Weekend 2015
Aroma has resin, some rye tones and fruits. Feels somewhat sweet. Flavour has minerals, sweet fruity tones, resin and fruity tones. This could be better with higher ABV; now this is a bit too watery. Not bad as-is anyway.

Pours reddish orange with a smooth head. Aroma of malts, caramel, berries, fruits and hops. Taste is smooth, malty and sweetish with notes of caramel, toffee, fruits and berries. Finish is smooth, malty and caramely with some fruits. Okay amber ale.
