PartyBear (29) - Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - AUG 29, 2009
Got this on cask from my local (The Bull, Bracebridge Heath, Lincoln). Appearance: Pours with a light amber colour and a decent creamy white head. No apparent carbonation. Aroma: Sweet and fruity on the nose, with slightly nutty malts in the background. Taste: There is a definite floral bitterness to the taste. Very big on the hops, with a perfumy twang. There is also mild fruity citrus flavours behind the bitter hops. Mouthfeel: This is a medium bodied bitter, delivering a slightly chewy, flat feel. Drinkability: This is the first beer I have had from the Oldershaw Brewery, even though I have lived about 20 miles from the brewery my whole life. Anyway, a decent offering on cask, refreshing and flavoursome.

Cask@GBBF2009. Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is fruits, wood, canilla and some mild grassyness. Flavour is quite much the same. Big grassy finish.

TBone (12545) - Pori, FINLAND - AUG 18, 2009
Cask@GBBF 2009. Golden color, small steady white head. Malty, light citrus hoppy aroma. Light citrusy Cascade hops, some backing malts. A bit boring, although would go with food.

Mothbag (16) - USA - JUL 27, 2009
Bottle conditioned from Doddington Farm Shop near Lincoln, Lincs. Golden to dark beer poored clear and flat, almost like it was direct from the cask. A good bottle conditioned beer. Slight earthy taste, but still good.

Fin (7379) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 4, 2009
Cask, handpump at The Chequers, Little Gransden, Cambs, home of the ’Son of Sid Brewery’ Poured mid amber with a slim white head, good clarity and nicley citric. This possibly suffered a little from being consumed after the ’Son of Sid’ Chopper as the hops were still being tasted from that one but it was a very good beer all the same. Sweet honey and good juiciness with a gentle fizzing bitterness struggling to make much of an impact. Likeable and thoroughly decent beer, but I’ll return to the Chopper next. A6 A4 F7 P3 Ov13 3.3

imdownthepub (10171) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 12, 2009
Cask conditioned at The Cambridge Blue, Cambridge. Amber with white head. Quite a highly perumed and fruity beer, with a wild berry flavour, I though billberry fitted the bill. Sweet and fruity finish, not my type of beer unfortunately.

DruncanVeasey (7160) - NUNEATON, Top 18, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - SEP 23, 2008
Bottle from Alexandra Wines, Coventry. Conditioning pisses all over the Battlefield Richard III I just saw off (similarly US-hopped pale/ Golden Ale), but zero hop character in comparison. Opens with a nice green geranium promise of hops, lime jelly, conifer and almond but mouth fades into water. Gentle fibrous tang, faint alcohol, pale malt peanuttiness. Popcorn afters. TURN IT UP.
