Quite a surprise! Had this one at the brewery on Thursday. Looked regular, golden, light foamy head. I didn’t notice anything spectacular when I gave it a sniff, some floral aroma, malts. But, wow! What a kick when I had a sip. It is really floral, almost perfume like. Quite surprised that bramling cross and progress would taste like this. Giving it a high score pretty much by the floral kick alone, and the nice sweet malts!

Fra fat på Craft Beer Co, Brixton 4 Nov 12. Mørk gyldenbrun. Nesten ikke skum. Klar grei karamellaroma. Smaken litt tung frukt. Ettersmaken det samme.

Rune (8497) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 2, 2012
Cask, half, shared with Finn early on a Sunday at Craft Beer Co in Brixton. Clear copper coloured body to a near-naked surface. Sweaty hops to the nose. Sweaty hops, mild spices and mid-sweet malts in flavour leading to a smooth, bittersweet ending. Average for the style (London, 04.11.2012).

downender (6526) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 9, 2012
Cask-conditioned at the South Wales Beeriodical, the Seven Stars, Bristol 8/11/2012. Orange in colour with a tight, off-white head. Big, citrus hop and pineapple aroma with a touch of caramel. The flavour had more citrus fruit, with some solid malts and a lingering dry finish. Very good.

Cask gravity at Kent BF 2010. Some sweetness on aroma. Sweetish strawberry syrup in mouth and some earthyness on finish. Pretty good sweetish fruit. I ended up liking it.

BeerViking (2689) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 13, 2009
Gravity at the 2009 Great Welsh Beer Festival, a pale amber strong bitter, with little head, green apples on the nose, and malty, sweetish and honeyed body with lemon and grass notes. The aftertaste is gently malty and nutty, with a soft bitterness.

Cask at Charlies. Hazy yellow coloured with a small white head. Fruity aroma of spices with notes of grass and hops. Fruity flavour of grapes with notes of spices and hops. Dry hoppy finish.

DonMagi (5596) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 7, 2009
Cask in the rake(i think could have been market porter). Alround rating: Pale honey malts, floral lightly lemon hop, quite well balanced but some peppery alc comes in later on.
