Cask conditioned handpump Cordwainer Northampton 25/04/ A golden coloured beer with a white head and lace. There’s an odd cleaning products thing going on here. Lemon, sweetness and a touch of glue too. Reasonably hopped. Interesting but flawed.

S - got some sweet hops but feint L- pretty sound light ale with a frothy head that stayed put for half the pint. T - faint flowery hop and sweet malt, which grew on me as I sunk it. No wow factor but good enough to have two or three. M - disappointing at first, something flattish about the condition may be. But by the end of the glass seemed irrelevant. O - a nice pint I can say no more.

Bottle. Pours light hazy light yellow with a finger thick creamy head. Aroma is citrusy hops, with oranges, grass as well as some grain. Full body with soft carbonation. Flavour is bitter with hoppy lemon peel.

Holmen1 (2272) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAR 17, 2014
Flaske delt med importør Willy, på brygga: farge og skum som pils, smaker dog litt bitrere og tørrere. OK tørstedrikk for 4,1 men engihet om at dette på ingen måte var minneverdig, så tørste var vi ikke.

Oakes (12167) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 5, 2014
Slightly hazy amber. Juicy, fresh c hop stuff with a mellow malt character. Really quaffable. Lots of styrians?

Scopey (6136) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 24, 2013
Cask at the Grill, alongside a wee dram. It pours golden amber with a medium white head. The nose is light toast, creamy, dough, pear drops, icing sugar and catdboard. The taste is floral, citrus peel, light dough, toast and grain with a dry finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Smooth and quaffable. Pretty alright.
