UPDATED: SEP 12, 2011 Gravity cask at the Peterborough BF 2011. Amber/red with a lively off white head. Initially sweet but a strong multi layered, resinous hop storm quickly sends the taste buds into chaos and the end result is a pint that disappears far too easily for sensible drinking purposes at a beer festival. Another winner from Oakham.

Hand pulled at the Swan and Rushes, Leicester. Brown/purple colour. Smells great, sweet, thick, heavy hops. Beautifully smooth, with lightly sweet hops and a big boozy finish. A real IPA this one, along the lines of a Mikkeller One Hop. Rich, full. Great stuff.

suprchunk (2265) - Crestview, Florida, USA - MAR 11, 2012
Dark toffee color. Big off-white head with rings of lacing as the beer was quaffed. Malt backbone with a huge hop aroma. Taste was slightly bitter, mostly hop flavors, and residual malt on the back. Very pleasant and would definitely seek out again. Delicious to say the least.

Cask by handpump at Cloisters, Edinburgh - clear brown, thin off-white head, no bubbles, fruity and sweet malt aroma and flavour, too strong for a session beer but very easy to drink

Half for breakfast@ Crown Oakham Beer Fest, Nuneaton, 09/09/11 (TEN Oakham beers on handpull). Honey amber with a firm, off white cap. Beautifully perfumed aroma of flowers, lemon zest, passion fruit and discreet green. Perfumed tropical character with mellow soft passion fruit, lemon icing and Jelly Tot notes over a robust husky base. A lick of heat and marzipan on the finish. Top stuff- bring on The Baron..

Cask at Cloisters. Reddish copper, thin head. Nice soft redcurrant, juicy orange peel, pineapple, liquorice, touch of paprika. Absolutely masses of fruit, strawberry, liquorice, massively juicy. Soft bittersweet finish and the paprika spice just comes back to tickle the tongue. A tiny bit sweet, but still superb.

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - OCT 23, 2011
Cask conditioned Handpump The Pub Leicester. An amber coloured beer with white bubbles for a head. Insanely hoppy aroma for a British beer. A strong chinooky nose with follows through to the flavour. Sweetish malts give a lovely backbone balance. A good long finish with a touch of caramel late on. Really really tasty.

[cask at Cloisters, Edinburgh] Firstly, this beer pours with a lovely colour – ruby and port-like, with a large, cream-coloured head. The aroma is sweet passion fruit, mango, bready malt and pepper – which I wasn’t expecting. I got pepper on the taste too, and had to look it up – seemingly it has paprika added, which certainly explains the colour. The fruity hop combines really well with the pepperyness, which prickles that back of your mouth. There’s sweet caramel malt in there as well – the three elements are blended really very well indeed [19102012]
