[10/17/13] Cask at Open Baladin in Rome. Clear copper. Pleasant hoppy aroma, piney. Fruity and “green”. Rather dry flavor with light maltiness, nice fruity and “green” hops and a moderate citric bitterness. Medium-bodied. Good and refreshing.

660ml bottle. Clear golden color. Small size, white head, stays. Good lacing. Bit sweet, hops, grassy, dusty notes in aroma. Hops, buttery, pine needles, watery flavor. Lack of depth, but still drinkable. Hard bitterness bites the tongue in aftertaste.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
0.66l bottle. A blurry - going cloudy after a while dark golden colored beer with a small quickly islandy and bubbly just off-white top. Peachy and fruity nose. Citrus and American hops with a little bit of sweetness. Caramel perhaps and all he way in tho back some hints of cinnamon stick. Smells nice. It has a light almost thin mouthfeel with a soft carbonation level. Quite alright to drink as well. A little bit of grapefruit, it had a nice bitterness - not to much, but I’m pleased that there at least is some. Watered down fruits like peaches and red apples. Yeas, I can drink lots of this, cause it’s quite nice. 06.07.2013

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
660 ml bottle, enjoyed at Barcelona.
Pours a amber golden colour with a white head. Aroma of grassy hops, herbs and citrus. Flavour of rich grassy hops, strong citrusy hops, grass, pale malts and prominent herbal notes. Light bodied, very slick mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Finishes dry, citrusy and very bitter. Very quaffable indeed.

Third of a pint at the Great British Beer Festival 2013. Murky orange with bubbly head. Citrus hop aroma. Hoppy, but not too much, with citrus zest, smooth. Tasty but not exceptional.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
August 20, 2013 - handpull cask at Earl of Essex. Bubbly and hazy orange-amber with a solid and lasting straw/beige clearly head. Aroma of blood orange and pungent grassiness, some alcohol; taste is very bitter indeed (unlike most "bitters") - pungently floral with a grapefruit residue, quite fruity. Thick, chewy, still, long-finishing - my luck with this brewery is very good; looking forward to them at Cask Days 2013!

UPDATED: APR 19, 2014
Aug 2013 - GBBF. Cloudy yellow/brown with decent white head. Slight pineapple in the smell. Mid to light body. Not a lot going on in the flavour really - soft bitterness, water, some astringency. Stupidly drinkable, but a bit ordinary. (3.4)
Apr 2014 - Cask at Draft House. Hazy dark orange, small white head. Aroma - orange, grass, slight bubblegum. Body is medium, smooth, low carbonation. Taste - spinach, herbs, toned down citrus, watery. Not bad. (3.6)
