Cask (Gallow’s Bird, Espoo, Real Summer Ale 2004)
Pale gold, tiny head. Crisp hoppy aroma, and a taste to match - very bitter, but quite refreshing. Don’t know if it’s too bitter to session.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A fair white cover tops this pale amber ale. Fresh cerealic, floral and bright aromas are all in communion. Bready on the palate, but again a freshness that brings it to further levels. Almost chewy for such a light beer. A chuggable companion.

Cask, Swan and Rushes, Leicester. Hazy gold with a small foam. Aromas are zesty, fresh lemon with lemon. Lightly sour and resinous with sweet hops. Flavours are soft malts with citrus fruit and greapefruit bitterness. A good beer for a hot day in a beer garden.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask gravity at Kent BF. Lucky I like citric hoppy summer beers. This is another in the long line. Very drinkable but difficult to differentiate from similar beers. Golden, lemon citrus and hoppy nose, dry citric hop finish.

cask, old moot hall inn, nottingham. this beer was a little too bitter for my liking, and the term ’session’ wouldn’t apply for me as a pint was enough. however, a nice light beer which fans of hoppy and very bitter beers would enjoy.
