Lilja (1393) - Malmö, - JAN 31, 2013
Smak och doft av örter, gräs, honung, väldigt blommig till en början med vattnas snabbt ut. Saknar kropp och eftersmak. Smakar som blommig örtjuice.

Scopey (5528) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 8, 2014
Cask at the Lyric, Soho. It pours clear golden amber with a medium bubbly white head. The nose is floral, hay, light toast, spice, sandalwood and leather. The taste is sweet, floral, doughy, wood, light spice, light peppery bitterness and honey sweetness with a dry finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Interesting and well rounded. Works nicely on cask.

(Cask at Gallows Bird, 20120908) The beer poured golden and clear. Its head was small and white. Aroma had flowers and fruitiness. Palate was medium bodied with low carbonation. Flavours were flowers, sweetness, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was flowey and bitter. Too much flowers.

SilkTork (5121) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 19, 2012
July 2003. Gravity Cask, Kent Beer Festival, with Nuffield & Duff. Soft, gentle, floral citric aroma. Bitter wood up front. More interesting than it is enjoyable. However, it is jolly enjoyable. [3.4]
