EdKing (2410) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 1, 2016
Cask pint in Royal Oak, Tabard St. Clear dark golden beer with a light thin foam head which doesn’t dissipate. Nose is big Harvey’s yeast, fruity rhubarb, English summer fruits, and then some grass, rhubarb and custard boiled sweets. Stunning condition. Taste is grassy, pale malts, big fruity rhubarb, stewed plum, very slight bitter dry hop. The Harvey’s yeast is singing in this. This is why I come here.

SlackerMads (2907) - DENMARK - OCT 14, 2015
Light hazy golden with a large off white head. Nose has mild caramel, bread, wood. Flavour is earthy and wooden, has some mild dry flowers, hay, soap. Medium body, some sweetness, mild acidity, mild bitter and dry hoppy finish. Overall uninteresting and the acidity seems misplaced, might not be in top condition.
