Scopey (7375) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 15, 2014
Cask at George, Croydon. It pours clear golden-amber with a small white head. The nose is rather spicy indeed, hay, earth, resin and biscuit. The taste is bitter, spicy, muffin, resin, wood, varnish and leather with a dry, spicy finish. Medium body and soft carbonation. Spice dominates this thing. Not very drinkable....

harrisoni (14104) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 20, 2013
Cask gravity at Leas Lift bf Folkestone. Hazy gold lasting white head. Spicy hoppy beer. It’s not horrible. The spice takes a bit of getting used to but I have had worse. Does get on your nerves a bit. Too much spice

Cask at The Prince Albert, Brighton. Pours a clear gold with thin head. Aroma is a bit pissy, lightly malty. It's a bit dull - popcorn, light malt, lemon. Not great. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

fonefan (35959) - VestJylland, DENMARK - JAN 8, 2013

Cask (gravity) @ 28th Pigs Ear Beer and Cider Festival 2011, at The Round Chapel in Hackney, London, England

Clear medium to dark amber orange color with a average, frothy, fair lacing, mostly diminishing, off-white to white head. Aroma is moderate malty, nutty, chestnuts !, tea, light toasted and caramel. Flavor is moderate to light light heavy sweet and light bitter with a long duration, phenol - hop oil, wood, rush mats. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft to flat. To much tea for me ;O( [20111207]

7th December 2011
Cask at Pigs Ear. Hazy amber beer, little white head. Smooth but dry palate. Semi crisp. Slightly odd taste. Resinous hops. Tart orange with what tastes like lemongrass and spices. Initially a bit jarring but improves as the palate gets over the shock. Dry finish, mildly bitter aftertaste.

BeerViking (2683) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 26, 2012
UPDATED: SEP 9, 2014 Cask at the Magpie, golden with a white head and an oddly biscuits and veg nose, the palate is lightly perfumed, with malt, a little orange and peach, and then citrus hop bitterness coming through (2.9). Re-rate at the Kings Tun JDW, the nose is biscuits and herbs, the palate is spicy, perfumed and lightly fruity with a firm dry citrus bitter and resinous finish. Unusual, but it grows on you.

oh6gdx (20902) - Vasa, FINLAND - DEC 13, 2011
Cask@Pigs Ear Beer Festival 2011. Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is soapy, a bit parfumed, some mild ashes and sweet malts as well. Also some floral notes. Flavour is caramel malts, wood, fruits, nutty bitterness and mild toasted notes. Rather interesting IPA, as it’s rather bitter, but at the same time it tastes very much like a pale porter.
