Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAR 2, 2008
Gravity cask at the Battersea Beer Festival, 6th Feb 2008. Yellowy amber colour. Simple malt and hop aroma. Likewise basic flavour and a thin palate. Very much an everyday bitter - doesn’t do anything particularly wrong but is too bland to leave a lasting impression.

albertane (377) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2008
Cask at Bacchus, Newcastle. Golden colour, hoppy aroma, pleasing flavour with citrus fruit including lemon or maybe orange zest. Quite enjoyable indeed.

ritchie666 (23) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - DEC 1, 2007
pale yellowy beer with tight white head that left a lot of lace. Nose was metallic with pleasing baked fruit. Mouthfeel belied its appearance and was quite substantial. Light fruity taste with a long hoppy finish. Nice.

FatPhil (9414) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 1, 2007
Cask (Gallows Bird, Espoo, Real Ale Festival 2006) Mellow golden ale, a little watery at the start. Late bitterness - some grapefruit, improves down the glass.

omhper (19670) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 28, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 30, 2007 Cask at Peterborough Beer Fest. Clear golden. Vague grassy hops up front. Sweet and fruity, rather minerally with light-medium body. Drying finish with light resiny bitterness. Rather anonumous.

RichardGretton (4260) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 29, 2007

TheGrandMaster (2334) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 19, 2007
Half pint gravity fed from the cask at the Ealing Beer Festival, a clear golden colour with a filmy head. An aroma of a great bitter - hoppy, fruity and flowery. A strong bitter palate, some umderstated fruity flavours, with a gravelly malt. Quite smooth throughout, then tart and dry in the finish.

RoyceH (1196) - Hesperange, LUXEMBOURG - MAY 6, 2007
Cask, Kingdom of Fife BF 07. Cloudy dark straw, thin bubbly white head. Quite sherberty hop nose, hint of lager hop. Some sweet play on the nostrils. Mouth is very watery, hint of hop bitterness at end. Bitter dryness lasts to the finish. OK, just a shame about the mouth.
