Pint on draught. Clear golden colour with a good, frothy head that dissipates but leaves a good lacing. Fairly mild aroma with some yeast. Slight sweetness, some roasted malt flavours, a little toast and a moderate bitterness. Not quite balanced enough, needs some more bitterness or some astringency, but a passable session beer.

Amber oranje bier met een goede witte schuim kraag. Ruikt zoet, honing. Geen ipa. Smaakt ook zoet, honing. No hop at all.

Cask @ Fleming Arms, Southampton. Unclear deep golden body with a small off-white head. Not much aroma here, hint of malt and caramel. Flavor is light and smooth malt, some caramel, light fruity with a hint of dry fruit and very moderate bitterness. Medium body and short aftertaste. Smooth with no faults, but to light and smooth for my likings.

Cask in Cairns, Argyle St. Clear amber with a decent creamy head. Slight aroma of cereal, grass, taste is sweet, creamy with a little fruity hop in there somewhere. Pretty bland tbh

Clear amber beer with a decent white head. Not much aroma. Thereís a bit more going on in the taste with some tangy fruit and a bit of hop though it all dissipates quite quickly. Alright, but boring.

Quite bland. Not much head, watery bitter notes. Disappointing! The aroma is probably the best thing about the beer but the taste disappoints.

kapusil (1051) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 22, 2016
On cask. Amer body, no head. Aroma and taste of toast, floral hops, orange zest, grains and butter. Light bodied and flat. OK, but kinda weak.

Towey1989 (1510) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 4, 2016
Cask at The Fountain, Leek. A clear deep amber colour with a medium white head. Aroma of sweaty malts, caramel, some yeast and subtle earthy hops. Taste of caramel, slight mineral and subtle earthy, floral hops. Light bodied and a smooth texture. A short, malty finish. Itís not bad for an afternoon pint when thereís nothing else to rate on. Overall though itís bland, watery and subtly hopped.

Mini Cask from B&M, Team Valley, Gateshead. An amber ale with tea like floral flavours, vanilla notes and a hoppy, burnt toffee and fruity finish. The Mini-Cask version is definitely the best.
