2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pint, cask @Wetherspoons. First beer after our long journey from Tromsø to Manchester.
Golden clear body, with sweet aroma of grass, honey and some hops. Quite anonymous, though. Better taste than aroma, dry hops, hay with a touch of grain. Pleasant start! The bartender wasn’t sure if this foreign girl knew what she was ordering, so he insisted on me trying it first and gave me a free sample. Nice:-)

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Gravity cask at the Wandsworth Halloween Beer Festival, 2010. Pours clear, yellow-gold with a slight, white head. Straw and grass make up the nose. Flavor is lightly sweet, with some carmel and honey, followed by a delicate bitterness comprised of earth and more straw. Light to medium in body with fine carbonation. Finishes a bit of sugar, along with more delicate hops. Very nice.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask (handpump) at GBBF, August 2006. Golden colour with a loose white head. Light grassy aroma. Quite restrained on the palate but its clean, fresh and fairly dry making for a decent thirst-quenching beer that drinks lighter than its ABV. Some tropical fruit nuances. Noticeably bitter finish. Quite impressive in a relatively understated way.
