Pizd (432) - Merseyside, ENGLAND - MAY 15, 2014
(Bottle): Pours a hazy gold with a white head. Aroma of citrus fruits, pine, tropical fruit juice. Flavour is a big fruit bowl, bitter citrussy flavours combining well with sweet, juicy flavours. Has a nice bitter kick and is overall very refreshing. Just seems to be lacking some balance.

Osprey87 (1711) - WALES - MAY 14, 2014
Cask at the White Horse, Soho. Clear orange, still, small foamy beige head, droopy lacing. Aroma - tropical, cheesy hops. Body is light, quite foamy yet also smooth. Taste is caramel, touch of mango, lime, soft bitterness. Aftertaste has lots of demarara sugar. Quite drying. Flavoursome cask ale. As much as I love cask ale, I think this one would be better on keg.
