Pistacho (47) - SPAIN - JAN 30, 2015
Cask conditioned at The Cock Tavern. Citric aroma. High bitterness flavor. Only a opinion, but for me it’s a nonsense to serve an APA from the cask. I’ve missed higher carbonation or a little more malty flavor. Something that is supposed to be refreshing served too warm and lacking bubbles. Probably a good APA if served from keg.

From cask. Its been a while since I had this one so I dont really remember its characteristics. I was not blown away but it was a very fresh and nice beer

Theydon_Bois (12731) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - APR 8, 2013
Cask at the Cock Tavern, 30/03/13. Hazed pale golden with a thin white head that clrs to the edge and forms a film. Nose is hops, pine, tropical fruit notes, grapefruit, mango, fresh and fruity. Taste comprises much the same, bitter grapefruit, fresh juicy mango, light pine, hops, sugards. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, bitterness in the finish. A cracking APA!

jackl (5804) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JAN 22, 2013
Keg @ The Cock Tavern. I’m rating the Columbus, Citra & Centennial edition. The pour’s a medium gold color with a small head. The nose is lemon squash, sweet peach cobbler dessert, other general citrus fruits. The taste is more lemon peel. Notes of aggressive, funky unwashed armpit. Earthy green hops, light tree bark. Moderately bitter, dry finish. Light body, zippy mouthfeel. Overall, a solid pale ale.

At the Brewpub. Columbus, Citra and Centennial version. Clear gold beer, suddy white head. Light palate, a little dry and crispy. Nice juicy hops with a trace of skunk. Sweet and bitter citrus, lemon, grapefruit and marmalade. A little grass and pine. Semi dry finish.
