cask draught at Angleterre Helsinki 6,1Ä 0,5l
Scent:dash of fudge hops
Taste: Wow what a nice bitterness and only dash of fudge there. Around 10 years I had ignored this name because beer in the bottle or keg ale is so full of fudge. This could be nice session beer.

Discreta bitter, anche se ammetto non sono appassionato dello stile. Aroma erbaceo e un poí luppolato, ma poco intenso. Colore pelo di volpe, limpido. Al gusto si sente un poí di caramello che evolve subito nellíamaro erbaceo del luppolo. Corpo leggero. Decisamente beverina.

Cask@Wibbas down inn JDW, Wimbledon - amber pour with good sized white head. Aroma and taste is toasty malty, twiggy herbal hoppy notes, caramel, nutty, some dark dried fruity nuances, have had before many moons ago with variable quality but never rated, and never at the condition on this rate which was spot on. Great stuff.

Cask at many Fullerís pubs around London. A true classic. Pours clear copper-gold with a frothy, white head. The nose has a bit of toasted leaves and grains, understated bready malts, traces of orange peel. Light sweet flavor with mild leafy bitterness, further lightly toasted bread, impressions of British yeast, citrus fruit. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Wonderfully balanced on the finish, with some crispy bread, biscuits, leaves, mild citrus. When on form, this is a superlative beer.

On cask, poured into a nonic. The aroma is kinda funky with mildew and sulfur notes followed by leather and citrus peel. It pours an oily, orange amber with a white soapy head that has light retention and mild lace. Itís a pretty well balanced, medium bittersweet. The texture is on the watery side of oily with a smooth, near flat carbonation. The light body has muted flavors of nuts and caramel with a finish thatís caramel syrup and an aftertaste thatís mild with notes of nuts and caramel.

Bridge House, Belfast : perfectly clear dark amber beer, good thick pale head, low carbonation. Not much aroma but perfectly balanced hop and malt flavours, absolutely none of the dryness that is so typical these days in similar beers. Very sessionable.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at The Swan, Lancaster Gate. Drank this one plenty of times in the past, so thought Iíd better rate it. It pours clear amber with a decent white head. The nose is toasty grain, brown bread, nuttiness and some sweet caramel/toffee. The taste is a bit bitter upfront, wood, earth, leather, nut, caramel, brown bread, toasty grain and light varnish with a dry finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. A good gateway cask all. It is well-rounded and drinkable, but relatively uneventful. OK.
