A good session ale, with malt and biscuit notes; it has a delicate hop aroma and a refreshing citrus hop after taste

500ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Pours clear amber, little to no head. Light malt loaf aromas, dried fruit, bit of butterscotch. Taste hasn’t got a right lot going on. Bit watery. Ok.

Cask @ Bacchus, Newcastle. The pour’s a deep amber color with a tiny, creamy white head. The nose is practically non-existent. I get some light apple and a bit of toffee. The taste is digestive biscuit, some caramel-covered apple. Not much else. Pretty dry on this finish. Light body, soft carbonation. Overall, completely inoffensive. Not bad, though completely forgettable.

Flavor is moderate sweet and bitter with a average to long duration. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft to flat. [20111206]

Cask at Pigs Ear. Clear pale gold beer. Light dry palate. No real head. A little fruit in there but it’s all a bit too dry and insipid to be enjoyable.

BeerSkull (1082) - SWEDEN - NOV 8, 2011
Vaguely acidic aroma of malt. The taste is acidic, bitter, harsh and a bit dry without having any proper malt base to complete and all these flavors with. I find the flavor strange and do not like it, but I can understand that there are people who enjoy it.

Cask conditioned at The Old Well, Barnard Castle, Co. Durham. Amber with white head. Quite a malty, biscuity beer giving a goos solid foundation, then a wheaty hop note. This make a cracking session beer. Really enjoyed it.
