Scopey (11346) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 26, 2016
Cask at The City Arms. It pours clear deep amber with a decent white head. The nose is bitter - sweet, caramel, brown bread and cereal. The taste is bitter, toasted brown bread, caramel, cereal, light spice and dull citrus with a firm, dry finish. Medium body and soft carbonation. Decent enough bitter, but far from a game - changer.

Cask, gravity dispense at the Cornish Arms tent at Glastonbury 2015. As ’The Other Ale’. Also previously available as ’Pyramid Ale’. Aroma is very light, soft caramel malts. Body is medium, smooth, low carbonation. Taste is astringent and twiggy with tea and lavender flowers. Pretty meh.

prawlie (1433) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 18, 2015
Pint at the Allied Arms in Reading. Short lived bubbly head on a clear light brown-orange beer. Lightly bitter and easy to quaff, whilst bitter and dry in the finish. Pleasant but a touch bland.

Lowenbrau (2943) - Asturias, Oviedo, SPAIN - DEC 18, 2014
Cask @The Dolphin, Plymouth. 09-08-2014.
In short: "balsamic" flavoured ale.
Pours clear light copper with little white head, vanishing. Caramel, some herbal balsamic (mint?) nose. Medium body, soft carbonation, oily texture. Taste is malty, caramel, some fresh balsamic flavours. Quite peculiar, still enjoyable.

UPDATED: OCT 16, 2014 Liked this. Nice toasted malt flavours. Wasn?t sure about aroma. Good on palate though and taste fine. Good strength. Will try again. Aroma much better second try. Third try continues to get better. Well balanced.
