The_Osprey (6330) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 29, 2016
Cask HP at Swansea Bay Beer Festival 2016 at Brangwyn Hall. As ’Gower Power’, 5.5%. Amber orange, still, translucent with a foamy off white head. Aroma is bready, melon, papery, musty. Body is smooth with tingly carbonation. Taste is papery melon, quite a hoppy floral tang, yeasty, apple with a drying finish. Decent session fodder.

imdownthepub (13232) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 14, 2016
Cask conditioned at The Charlotte, Leicester. Amber with off white head. This is rather a harsh bitter in character, sharp and a touch metallic, chemical. Drying and full on the palate. It’s okay but a slight struggle.

FatPhil (13867) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 15, 2016
Draught (Gallows Bird, Espoo, Real Ale Festival 2016)
Mid orange, small loose head. Nice sweet aroma, both malty and hoppy. Well, you can tell it’s beer made with beer ingredients, although it’s in places a bit watery. But palate is soft and mellow. Finish is quite dry and bitter. Sweet malts and twiggy hops in OK balance most of the time. However, the bitterness does build up and become a bit aggressive over time. Hard to rate this, I can imagine one day giving this 3.0, but the next day giving it 3.6, it all depends on what I want my hop experience to be.

Flavours were creamy toffee, grass, sweetness, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was hoppy and bitter. A good hoppy brew.

Finwe (432) - Grankulla, FINLAND - JAN 29, 2016
Cask at Gallows Bird, Espoo. Hazy golden with a small, white head. Aroma of citric and floral hops with some malty sweetness. Balanced flavour, but hoppy bitterness still dominates over malty sweetness. A dry, bitter finish.

sound67 (696) - Offenbach, GERMANY - JUN 2, 2015
[Beer Festival Reading, 2015] - Gower Brewery Power, 5.5%, heller Bernstein, klar. Mittleres Grapefruitaroma, minimale krautige Note, vielleicht etwas Himbeere. Im Antrunk wieder überraschend trocken, gar nicht sehr fruchtig, etwas Bitterorange, bitterer Hopfen, eher wie ein Pils. Zur Mitte nur noch Hopfen und eine leichte Zitrusnote, so geht es auch in den Abgang. Der fällt blass bitter aus, und so bleibt es eine Weile im Nachhall, mit vielleicht einem Hauch verbleibender Zitrusfrucht, wenn man gute Willens ist. Kaum Power.
