Cask; Regular.
A beer derived from years of practice searching for the perfect pint, of course hoping secretly that you never actually find it! In other words, a pint suited to the taste- buds of our head brewer that can be savoured several times in one session without feeling like the bottom has fallen out of your world (or vice-versa!). Golden, hoppy, clean on the palate and leaving a long lingering after-taste that will haunt you until you quest for more.

Mads Langtved (2244) - Copenhagen K, DENMARK - DEC 9, 2005
Cask conditioned, GBBF 2005: Citrus aroma. Some hops gives the beer a quite refreshing bitterness. The same happens in the palate.

Nekronos (3838) - Xalapa, MEXICO - NOV 9, 2005
UPDATED: MAY 8, 2006 Really an ale, was not bad, was nice the foam, the colour is really good, a little creamy perhaps the impression is given by the colour. One of the favourites among Scottish ales fans.

madsberg (10888) - Søborg, DENMARK - AUG 7, 2005
Cask @ GBBF 2005: Golden coloured. Dusty. Fruity and sweet beer. Is a little stale. Has some vague citric notes, that gives room for some light freshness.

[draught at kirky puffer] pours a cloudy yellow colour. nose is hoppy with some grapefruit, plesant but not complex. Body is light and there is a slight bitterness in the finish.

Very suprising, best iv had from kelburn. Aroma is grapefruit and slightly floral hops. Taste is similar, with a fuller than expected flavour for something of this strength. Very refreshing and i hope we’ll be getting this back in soon - wetherspoon (kirky puffer).

Cask at Bon Accord. Good golden ale, more body than their Carte Blanche, despite lower abv. Aroma of fruit and hop. Good finish.

chriso (7513) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 26, 2004
Pale gold colour. Forceful grassy hop aroma, albeit a little green and clammy. Spicy citric hops on the palate (not pallet!). The finish is dry and quite austere. A commendable thirst-quenching hoppy session bitter. Handpump, Head of Steam, Euston, London NW1.

Cask Conditioned, at the Head of Steam, Euston, London.
Golden beer with a nice fluffy white head from the pump. The beer was in wonderful condition. Hoppy and delicious, with light and delicate pineapple notes. The beer finish with a good bitter bite and was outstanding.
