kwik-lime (1159) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 21, 2014
Cask at the Oxford in Edinburgh. Straw colour with decent head that lasts nicely. Grassy hops mix nicely with biscuity malt here to make a balanced, smooth and highly enjoyable session beer.

allmyvinyl (2166) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 30, 2013
Cask a McCowan’s. Clear golden yellow pour, foamy white head. Aromas of floral hops, light fruit, some light malt. More malt-dominated on the taste though, and on the thin side. Not bad.

Theydon_Bois (6986) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - NOV 5, 2013
Cask at Number 27, Inverness, 19/10/13. Clear golden with a good sized off white head. Nose is toasted malts, citric waft, orange. Taste comprises orange pith, toasted malts, bread dough, citrus fruit. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, dry grassy bitter notes in the finale. Decent GB and in great condition as per all the cask ales I had at number 27 this weekend.

Fanstasic beer with a creamy mouth feel. One of the best light beers I have tried

This one may have been near the end of the barrel- but I think I’ve had enough ossians to try and give it a fair score. Golden with a medium white head. Malty, hoppy aroma. Sweet with a mild finish. Thick oily texture and light carbonation. Normally a decent pint - though this one was lacking a bit of excitement- will definitely re-rate at some point...

(cask) pours a hazy golden colour with a frothy white head. aroma of banana, citrus peel, yeast, white grapes, herbal hops and a hint of butter. flavour is mostly the same, slightly grainy, with hints of raisins and a light sweetness. medium-bodied with soft carbonation.

Cask, The Last Plantagenet, Leicester. Golden with a white foam. Aromas are lemon rind with grain and hints of honey. Trace lime with floral notes and spices. Flavours are peanuts wit dry lager malt and mellow lemon. Spritzy yeast with base biscuit malts. Dry and peppery on the finish. I liked it.
