Cask by handpump at State Bar, Glasgow (23 Jan 12) - amber ale with small off-white head and caramel malt aroma, sweetish with a hint of caramel but well balanced, oily feel

Cask at Bree Louise. Amber coloured, very clear, with small white head. Aroma is sweet and grainy. Taste, same. Not very exciting.

Cask gravity @ Bree Louise, Euston NW1. Pours a clear amber color with no head. Has a fruity malty caramel aroma. Fruity malty caramel flavor with weak hoppy hints. Has a fruity malty caramel finish.

Dark amber colour didn’t have a head and was cloudy in appearance. It had a perfume aroma and had some carbonation. It was thick and had a hoppy taste.

Theydon_Bois (8395) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - NOV 5, 2013
Cask at the Anderson, Fortrose, 19/10/13. Clear dark amber with a moderate off white head. Nose carries a fruity tang, malts, classic twiggy affair. Taste comprises apple skins, bready malts, orchard fruit. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, dry bitter finish. Mediocre old school bitter type thing ... yawn!

Cask at the Golden Eagle, W1. Caveat to this review as I don’t think this beer was served in optimal condition - it wasn’t very nice. Pale golden colour, but dominant flavour of earthy, musty hoppy bitterness. Would love to re-rate as it seems my review is way off track, but this is what I had...
