Leighton (13850) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 5, 2015
Cask at the North Star - Ealing, London. Pours clear gold with a frothy white head. The nose has some tangy lemon, bread, wood. Light-medium sweet flavor with more out-of-place citrus tang, pale wood, leaves, melon, lemon. Light to medium bodied with fine carbonation. Finishes a bit sour and woody, with subtle pale bready malts, lemony accents, faint hay and grass. This cask seems to be pretty knackered.

mR_fr0g (5253) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 24, 2015
Cask at the local Nicholson’s pub in canary wharf. Dark orange coured pour with a medium loose off white head. Aroma is medium sweet, grainy, berry, hard alcohol. Flavour is rough doughy grainy, strawberry, rye bread, solvent, hot alcohol,. Some citrus hop but not nearly enough. Poor effort.

Euston Tap. Cask. Almost clear gold beer, decent white head. Palate is smooth and light with fine carbonation. Light clean pale malt. Nice orangey - lemon hops, little marmalade. Rye? Maybe a touch of spice if you look for it. Light finish, nicely joined up. Very drinkable.

Scopey (8822) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 3, 2014
Cask at Euston Tap. It pours hazy golden with a small white head. The nose is sweet dough, muffin, brown bread, earth and leaf. The taste is bitter, pine needles, grapefruit, spicy, rye bread, underlying sweetness and a touch of soap with a dry finish. Not much depth. OK.

RichardW (1703) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - APR 25, 2013
Keg, The Font, Manchester. Sweet sherry and malt aroma, countered by a rye and bitter finish. Lingering red fruit flavours, complex aftertaste, slightly peppery, with more malt/grain late on. Intriguing, interesting.

downender (6889) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 24, 2013
On gravity at the winter beer festival, the Three Tuns, Bristol 23/2/2013. Slightly hazy amber with a decent, off-white head. Big, slightly earthy grains, some citrus fruit and a spicy, dryish finish. Fine.

stravale (2478) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - JAN 25, 2013
Keg @ Hanging Bat [230113] Amber, very hazy, thin head, no lacing. Aroma of caramel and light sweet toffee malts, some roasted puff candy, not keen on the caramelised orange malts. Taste is of grassy bitter hops, sweet caramel malts, some soft toffee, caramelised orange malts. Medium carbonation and body and the finish has bitter dry zest hop. Overall - it was OK but not fantastic.

jamestulloch (2049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 25, 2013
Aroma: Oats, subtle citrus and biscuit.

Appearance: Hazy red amber body with a thin white head that fades. No lacing.

Taste: Light bitterness. Distinct flavour of Ryvita biscuits. Some bread and caramel notes too.

Palate: Medium body with a slightly oily texture. Light carbonation.

Overall: Big biscuit flavours, quite unusual but pretty tasty.

BeerCast_Rich (1905) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 24, 2013
[keg at the Hanging Bat, Edinburgh] [collaboration with Bristol Beer Factory] 20% rye in the malt bill, before being hopped and then dry-hopped with Citra, Chinook, Nugget and Cascade. Hazy deep amber with a small white head. Slightly sweet, bready nose, with a lemony edge. More bready than spicy on the flavour – the peppery rye comes over more as a general earthy blanket, before the bitter fruity hops come in. Although, having said that, it’s not hugely bitter. Decent stuff, but maybe slightly confused [22012013]
