harrisoni (17351) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 15, 2011
Cask handpull at Baker Street Spoons. Clear pale brown with sparse off white head. Some tropical fruit on the aroma. Peculiar as i get some liquorice. Spicy rye is there. Needs more hops. Spicy rye finish. Ok. Just a bit interesting but doesnt go the whole hog. A little restrained but the rye is definitely present

Cask, The Sheaf Island (JDW). Fall ale festival. Rouge Hurd gold, mellow but potent spice aroma. Bright hop flavour, then transitions to a caramel pepper finish.

Liked this but always at the back of my mind was that something wasn’t quite right about it. Tasty though but strangely dissapointing

AleManTom (195) - Chapel en le Frith, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - OCT 8, 2011
Amber ale with a good head. Malty character, bits of dark fruit. Unfortunately for me, the flavour was a bit over-powering.

berkshirejohn (6077) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 7, 2011
Cask at the Prince Arthur (JDW), Fleet. Golden amber with a ring of off-white head; citrus aroma; rich fruity malt flavour with chewy, fruity, assertive, resinous, hops to finish. An excellent bitter.

Cask, Highcross, Leicester. Golden brown with a thin foam. Aromas are grain and lemon tea with rye malts and earthy, leafy hops. Flavours are light toffee malts with earthy leaves and woody notes. Mellow lemon with herbal notes. Spicy and dry to finish. Pretty pleasant.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 6, 2011
On cask at The Crystal Palace in Glasgow. Pours a nice, red - orange colour with a fair yellowish head. Lovely hoppy aroma of pine, passion fruit, pineapple, caramel and barley. Similar flavours with mild bitterness. A little oily mouth-feel with a long pine, passion fruit and caramel linger. Mild carbonation. Very nice. My pick of the festival so far.
