2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Very light palate here. Mild bitterness, even for a bitter. Pours orange with great lacing and good head. Some odd malt aroma - has a bit of a swampy side. Finishes with light note of sourness but really nothing much at all. Watery palate. Tap at Black Tomato.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at C’est What 24 Hours of Beer. Pours a clearish copper colour with modest-sized off-white head. Lightly toasty caramel and grains in the aroma with some gentle grassiness. Flavour also has caramel and grains with some toastiness as well as a hint of fruit. Gentle hoppiness in the finish. Pleasant.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cask at C’est What - came a slightly hazed, gorgeous ruby hue with a tight two-finger cap that lasted throughout the pint. Really, really pretty beer. Aroma delicate and beautiful - sweet malt, toffee, clover, grass, dried cherry, earth. The nose on this, while mild, is incredibly "natural" smelling. Flavour backs up the aroma, super well-balanced, nice earthiness and a lovely, enticing hop quality behind the veil of malt. Pillow-soft mouthfeel, with the most graceful natural carbonation. One of the most moreish ales I’ve had. Would happily sit and drink this all day. Far and away the best beer I’ve had from Neustadt, hope it becomes a regular cask offering. Kudos to the brewery.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
550ml draught (cask)
I tried this on tap on April 29, 2011 at "C’est What" in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The beer poured a translucent copper colour with a creamy off-white head. The aroma was caramel malt, grain, and floral hops. The mouthfeel was thin to medium bodied with medium carbonation. The flavour was a nice balance between the citrus bitterness of the hops and the slight sweetness of the malt.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at C’est What. Amber pour with a tight tan head. The aroma is quite soft and lightly hoppy. A kiss of sweet caramel and some sweet raspberry fruitiness. A little whiff of citrus as well as some light crystal. Medium-light mouthfeel but it is well-integrated and has really managed to pull out a lot of character in a 3.8%ABV brew. There is a vague suggestion of tartness on the back that kind of accentuates the esters. Quite interesting. The UK style crystal malts really come put as it starts to warm up.
