On cask @ Southampton Arms, London - UK. Color: hazy pale blond beer with no carbonation and small white foam. Smell: fruity and hoppy. Small floral balance and grassy notes. Very fruity nose. Mango and peach. Taste: medium body with nice peach and exotic fruits taste. Very easy drinkable with floral hint. Very nice. I recommend it. Good attenuation. Aftertaste: sweet bitterness with no resin. Well done!

PhillyCraft (4528) - 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 (962) - 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.

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.
