Cask at the Beamish beer festival. An amber ale with a white head. Lots of tropical flavours, especially pineapple. The finish is dry and bitter with pine. Very nice.

Cask @ Brewery Shades, Crawley. Amber, clear with considerable white head and lacing. Tropical fruit aroma with a hint of malt and hay. Taste starts out slightly sweet and then... I can feel my tongue dry. Wow. Bitter on a US IPA scale but also nicely balanced. A well executed beer to cherish and remember.

Des céréales bien croquants qui se laissent infiltrées par une résine très amère aux teintes d’agrumes et de fleurs. Avec l’effervescence qui est au plus bas, je me retrouve devant un monstre de buvabilité.

kapusil (1204) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 24, 2016
On cask. Deep golden body, white head. Aroma and taste of bread, grape seed, pine and citruses. Minimal sweetness upfront but then the hops take over. The finish is quite dry. Very nice IPA.

Taste has some grassy notes, lovely hoppy, pine, citrus, orange, slightly firm, malty base however it flattens quickly, fruity character, medium sweetness, medium bitterness, normal co2, biscuit malty base, some marmelade-ish, i liked it...

Cask @ CPK. Light golden color with a modest off-white head. The nose is quite fresh, full of cut grass, sweet lemon The taste is quite pleasant. Nicely hoppy, plenty of citrus fruit flavor. But this isn’t overpowering, not too bitter. Multiple pints are certainly possible. The body’s medium, the carbonation subtle and light. Overall, a very nice, pleasing beer. A great edition to Dark Star’s permanent rotation.
