shoulderbroken (2026) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JUL 11, 2011
On tap at the Southampton Arms. Looks very orange with a small head which lasts the whole way down. Feel like I could taste the alcohol. Taste is quite citrussy, particularly orange with a bit of sherbet in there too. Nice pint.

EdKing (1866) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 23, 2011
Half at The Rake. Nice dark amber colour with a thin white head. Nose is pine, with toffee/caramel malt. Taste is pine, resiny with grapefruit really only a minor note. In my opinion the pine coming from the hops is overpowering the fruit a bit. Oily and full bodied in the mouth. Nice toffee malt on the finish.

Cask (handpump) at the Rake Welsh Beer Festival on 1 March 2011. Attractive clear amber with a loose but lasting off-white head. Quite fruity. Interesting herbal notes. Moderate citric hop presence. Fairly firm and tasty without producing huge excitement. I have to say I didn’t find it that IPA-like.
