Cask at Ealing beer fest 2009. Golden pour with light head on top. A nice hoppy aroma. Hoppy, citrus, slightly bitter taste. Not bad but this ain’t no US style beer IMO.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask in the alfread herring. Alround rating: Biscuity british malt, grassy small lemon hop character, dry bitterness. Too british in style, needs more american hop late additions.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The Figure of Eight (JDW), Broad St, Birmingham. I’ve been after this one, and it’s good but lightweight. Dusty red amber with a slender white rim. Musky hopleaf aroma with a good squeeze of citrussy resins. Faint Brewdog Punk IPA-like lychee and mandarin notes with biscuit. Quenchingly hoppy, but was expecting more. Punk IPA shandy.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask-conditioned at the Commercial Rooms, Bristol (JDW) 19/04/09. Deep gold with a frothy white head. Decent hoppy, aroma with plenty of citrus and orange blossoms and a touch of caramel. Flavour started sweet, with some marmalade, more citrus hops and a very long, dry finish. Very enjoyable.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2009 Gravity cask at the London Drinker Beer Festival. Gold with a lively white head. Great beer to start the festival off. Cascade hops in the aroma and taste. Orangy citrus notes and silky hop oils helped this slip down easily. I couldn’t resist a second!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cloudy light amber, lasting large-bubbled white head. Straight orangey aroma muddled in heavy yeastiness that procures lots of dusty breadiness. Not so easy to drink as its ABV might indicate. Medium-bodied or even thicker, rather powdery palate. Still a tasty ale, but not so hoppy really.
