spacecube (1562) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 5, 2016
Can. Pours clear gold with a light haze and foamy head. Aroma is pretty malty, initial butterscotch, toffee malts, also hoppy with dried fruit and nut, orange. Light medium body, finish is balanced, lightly bitter. Will have to try again on cask, this can is not as good as it should be I think.

Hippoman (646) - Durham, ENGLAND - APR 2, 2016
Cask at The Bishops’ Mill (JDW), Durham, £1.60/pint. Pours a clear mid-amber with a thin, off-white head. The nose is light but still packs a tropical fruity punch. The taste is chock-full of fruity hops, with passion fruit, orange and even peach all detectable. There’s a real underlying dryness that becomes astringency on a long finish. It really tastes its full 5.7%. On the whole good flavours but a little too boozy.
