sudomorph (966) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 1, 2015
Real ale draft. Pours a clear golden yellow with a half finger, off white head that leaves a thick coating. Fine sediments rising to the top. Aroma is mildly creamy with hints of fruity esters. Taste is balanced with notes of creamy fruity esters, and traditional spicy/earthy hops. Medium-full body with a low-medium carbonation and a dry finish. Overall a nice cask ale. Fruity Easter, traditional hops, and a great cask mouth feel.

Cask at Counting House. Hazy pour, though it does clear. Golden colour and thick white head. Light citrus smell. Flavour is crisp, sour lemon, hops and as mentioned in other posts an almost earthy, smoky taste underneath all that too. Quite a creamy mouthfeel too. Nice, interesting lager.

Theydon_Bois (14316) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 23, 2015
Gravity dispense at the Happy Man Spring BF ’15, 20/03/15. Clear golden with a moderate off white covering. Nose is pale malt, lemon drizzle, grain husk, light bread notes. Taste comprises more soft bread tones, light citric, caramel, faint cereals. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, semi drying close with light citric hop bitterness. Refreshing stuff, solid for a cask lager.

Cask at Ship Inn North Berwick. Lovely and smooth. Creamy mouthfeel. I agree with comment about subtle undertones of perhaps smoke. Few went down well
