BeerCast_Rich (1840) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 3, 2011
[cask at Rook & Gaskill, York] Quite hazy golden yellow pour with a thin white head. Odd aroma of grassy hop and huge amounts of diacetyl. Not convinced this one was at its best - the diacetyl spoiled it for me, and actually made me ditch it after a while. One for a re-rate in the future maybe, if I ever see it again! [26022011]

chriso (7344) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 18, 2006
Cask (gravity dispense), Reading Beer Festival, April 2006. Very pale straw colour in the Ossett mould. From the name, I was expecting something vibrant and US influenced. So I was rather disappointed to find little aroma and a dry, crisp lagerish beer on the palate, without a huge amount of flavour. Palatable but underpowered. Didnít really hold my interest.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 19, 2006
Cask at oliver Twist, Stockholm. Clear blond colour with a low white head. Weak lemony aroma with a faint note of sulphur. Rather hoppy and refreshing flavour of lemon-rind with a subtle sweetness from vabilla. Dry hoppy aftertaste of lemon-peels with a undertone of rubber. Another refreshing but a bit simplistic golden ale from Osset. Quite nice.

Joeh (2038) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2006
Cask Conditioned at Reading BF 2006. Blonde. Cat litter and wet dog aroma with some horrid egg. Malt and fruit upfront with some hops in the background. Iím not sure why this is called Oregon because itís about as far from good American beer as you can get.

kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - APR 30, 2006
Cask @ Reading 06: Pale, pale yellow in colour. Simple lager-like malt flavours. Clean, subtle bittering. Almost a little kolsch like. Pleasant.

Mungo (2472) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - APR 30, 2006
Gravity cask @ Reading Beer Festival 2006. Minimal aroma. Sweet grainy malts. Some hoppiness but not much. Disappointing.

harrisoni (12650) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - APR 30, 2006
Reading 06 BF cask gravity. Golden beer with bubbly white head. Lovely hop aroma which is slightly sweaty. Sweetish hop in mouth. Grassy/herby. Really rather nice. Typical Ossett offering with slightly sweeter hop

omhper (18949) - TyresŲ, SWEDEN - APR 27, 2006
Cask at Akkurat, Stockholm. Golden colour. Mangoish hop aroma. Fairly sweet with soft, rounded mouthfeel. Intenese flavourwise and nicely hoppy. I donít get much Pacific NW hops, but the bitternes is certainly there.

MrWalker (926) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 13, 2006
Cask @ Oliver Twist, Stockholm
Very blond and a neon white head. Rather sweet for a blond like this. Hefty hop character of the fruity kind, as expected. There is, however, a surprisingly malty baste that adds to body of this here beertype I oftenmost donít approve of. Appart from the sweetness this is a great summer beer.
