Cask - BBQ chicken and sulphur.  Clear gold with a decent white head.  Bready and pale malts with some light bitterness.  Smell is really off, but beer is fine.

Scopey (6713) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 25, 2014
Cask at the Simeon Arms, Ryde during the IoW Jolly. It pours clear pale gold with a small white head. The nose is eggy, sulfurous, farty, corn and earth. The taste is crisp, grassy, egg & cress sandwich, toast, citrus peel and soap with a dry finish. Medium body and soft carbonation. Eggy/sulphrous stuff is pretty nasty. No good.

MichaelAwesome (3919) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 13, 2014
Bottle shared with McTapps. Crispy and fresh with a decent bitterness and aromas of hops, bread and few citrus fruits. Sharp bitter end, decent drinkability and a touch of spruce. Not bad at all.

Svesse (6065) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAY 7, 2014
(Cask at Oliver Twist, Stockholm, 27 Apr 2014) Pale golden colour with frothy, white head. Fruity, slightly malty nose with citrus, tropical fruit, grass and biscuits. Malty, fruity taste with notes of tropical fruit, citrus, grass, biscuity malt and a fresh, floral bitterness in the finish. Light body, with balanced sweetness. Quite light, but fresh and tasty. Quite nice.

_angst_ (2726) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 27, 2014
Cask @ OT. Pours clear pale golden with a rocky offwhite head that doesn’t leave much trace while dissipating. Smell is subtle with caramel, buttered white bread, orange zest, moist grass and lemon zest. Taste is sweet, tiny bitter and tiny floral with white bread, moist grass, orange zest, butterscotch hard candy, bergamot and biscuits, mouthfeel is soft, flat, round, slightly astringent and light bodied. Finish is bitter with biscuits, moist grass, orange peal, bergamot and dried flowers. Forgettable...
