sm89walt (1827) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 26, 2010
Cask (gravity) - Norwich Beer Festival 2010. Pours with a head typical of gravicask: fluffy, bubbly & lasting, white in colour with a delicately hazy gold body. Brilliant, crisp grapefruit & lemon hop aroma. Crisp hop flavour profile: lemon, a bit of sherbet with a lingering finish. Light, drinkable body (and I could easily have gone for more), light to medium carbonation and a decent length end. A really lovely, straight up but standout bitter.

500ml bottle. Pours a slightly hazy golden with a medium head. Aroma is pineapple and piney hops. Tropical fruits to start and a nice piney hoppy finish with medium bitterness. Drinks above it’s strength. Very impressed.

8th September 2010. Cask Pub & Kitchen. ’Meet The Brewer’
Thanks to Ethereal for the half pint! Cheers Casper! Clear pale gold beer with a residual suddy head. Light semi dry palate. Sweetish banana cream base for a little citric hop. Nice! Finishes dry.

Cask (@ King’s Arms, Hawkshead): Yellow coloured with a smaller white head; distinctive hoppy-lemony nose; light bodied, moderate to robust bitter-sweet flavour; dry lingering aromatic hoppy finish. Superb......

(Old BA rate - cask) Yellowy gold, and hinging on amber as well. Thin, white head poured at the perfect height. Fantastic lacing all throughout the sample. roma is light, citrusy and bitter hop aroma that was followed by biscuity maltiness. Brilliant hop bitterness up front with a dry floral finish. A lot creamier than I expected for the style. Very full mouthfeel with a decent coating of the tongue. This would do me great all night long. Lighter body might have been nice, but I can’t complain with all of the great flavors going on. What a treat, and at such a reasonable abv. Overall, this is a great interpretation and update of a very traditional style. Well-done, and I can see why it was the most popular beer at the pub.

KyotoLefty (7975) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAR 20, 2010
Cask at the Marble Arch. Light amber color, but amazingly full flavored. Fruity, rounded, with a little citrus. Great hops, but with excellent balance and a slight bubblegum hint as well. A truly great bitter--surely one of the most impressive I can remember, and in tip-top shape at the brewpub.
