On tap, UK. Pale and cloudy. Hoppy with pineapple and citrus flavours, almost weizen-like. Very nice!

PhillyCraft (3875) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 27, 2015
On pump at Tereaas, recommended to me by Cliff. Pours golden brownish color with medium to large frothy head. Aroma and flavor are dank pineapple, bitter pine, and a beautiful malt bill. Really surprised how nice this English cask offering was. The cascade and centennial brought some nice bitterness to the pineapple citra funk. Medium bodied. they had me at "industrial sized hookah"

Towey1989 (532) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 27, 2015
Cask at The Holy Inadequate, Etruria. A slightly hazy amber colour with a thin white head. Aroma is quite chemically of grapefruit, pine, resin, orange and some floral notes. Taste of bitter grapefruit, apricot, orange, pine and a hint of caramel sweetness. Medium bodied and an oily texture. A citrusy bitter finish. A hoppy but heavy APA, ok though.

jbruner (2920) - Athens, Georgia, USA - FEB 26, 2015
Cask sampled at ACAT 2015. Pours a slightly hazy golden orange worth bubbly off-white head. Aroma and taste of big floral and citrus hops over bready pale malts. Nice light body and soft carbonation, good hoppy pale ale.

weordie (255) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JAN 29, 2015
Pours copper with a thin white head. Aroma of grass, flowers but faint. Taste is like a bog standard ipa, not much bitterness, not much anything.

chinchill (2924) - South Carolina, USA - JAN 24, 2015
From a cask at the 2015 Atlanta Cask Ale Tasting. Feel: Medium-light body with light carbonation. Clear amber, but not good clarity, with a sudsy head. Very hoppy for a pale ale, so hoppy it could pass for a American Psle Ale or even an IPA. Fruity, herbal and floral.

Vladivostok (323) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JAN 16, 2015
Pretty pale without actually being anaemic this tastes just like all the other Dark Star beers that I’ve tried. Aroma and flavour overpoweringly of citrus and a very long, very sharp bitter finish. A bit too strong to be refreshing. Well made but the citrus just turns me off.

SlackerMads (2062) - DENMARK - JAN 11, 2015
Cask. Clear copper with a medium sized frothy off white head. Starts off pretty sugary, but some bitterness kicks in. Flavour is mostly tropical fruits; papaya, lychee and sugary malt, toffee. Feels a bit disjointed and heavy on the alcohol. The hops are tasty and I think it would fare better if the malt and alcohol was toned down.

beer-yum (804) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - DEC 21, 2014
Sweet citrus aroma and light amber in colour. Enjoyable hop forward balance with a nice clean finish. Very tasty.

[6390-20140627] Cask. Mild orange toast aroma. Slightly hazy, orange body with a long-lasting bubbly off-white head. Toasted bitter malt flavour. Medium body. Good. (7/3/7+/3/15) 3.5
