Green apple and toffee aroma that’s slightly medicinal. Clear orange-brown with white bubbles. Caramel and toffee flavour with some nutty and spicy notes. Tingly sweet with a touch of cinnamon. Light to medium body, very low carbonation, slightly bitter finish.

<i>Cask Conditioned at The Castle, Furnival St., London</i>
Amber color. Light aroma, the flavor is bolder; sweetish malt and caramel combination, lightly fruity (so far, positive), light earthy touch, possibly even smokey, but also a very light sourness (mostly in the aroma) that lets presume something may be going wrong with this beer. Not complex, but pleasant enough; a beer to try again in better conditions.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
[on draught at The Retreat, Reading] Uncarbonated; malty, some citrus fruits, almost bordering on sweet and sticky at times but the hops come through at the end to take the edge off. A decent pint, this, and different enough to stand out from the crowd.

Cask. Dark orange, basically no head. Aroma of citrus and orange peel. Taste ginger, pear, grapefruit and lemon. Simple, but does the job.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask (O’Connell’s, Tampere), pint glass. Begins with a light haze to the medium brown-red hue, capped by a tight, off-white head. The aroma is quite bold, full of toffee, cherries, chocolate/coffee and cookies. Overall it comes across sweet with some dark fruit acidity. The flavour is much more reserved by comparison, starting with light toffee / biscuits and finishing with cherries and apples. Soft roasted overtone. Light bodied with a watery / silky texture and soft carbonation. Banana and apple skins crop up with warmth. Big nose, but a little flat on the tongue.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask (Kitty’s, Helsinki)
Very dark orange, small spongy head. Aroma of sweet roasted malt and dusty hops. Mouthfeel is sharp and pleasantly refreshing, not quite watery. hints of brown almost sourness. Slightly drying, not quite resiny, hops give it a pleasant bitteness which stays for quite a long finish. For 3.8% this is a superb creation.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask conditioned at The Woolpack, Banbury. Gold with white head. Really fully flavoured for such a light ABV. Plenty of malt flavours with a good fruity background, a little spiciness then a big hoppy flavour. Plenty of bite with a lasting bitterness. A really decent beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Cask at O’Connels Tampere) Light coppery colored, little lasting yellow head. Surprisingly rich aroma with sweet caramel and fruits, even some chocolate comes up. Also this standard real-ale lemon touch can be found. Thin to medium bodied, misses carbonation. Flavor is still nice with mild and sweet chocolate, lemon and hops come up in bitter aftertaste. Nicely balanced bitter, with some more carbonation this would be excellent.
