Cask as unfined at the Stockbridge Tap. Hazy amber with white head. Zesty lemon aroma, some orange. The tea comes through more in the flavour with some lemon. Dry and refreshing

Tap East Collaboration Fest. Cask. Cloudy amber beer, good pale cream colour head. Palate is light and semi dry. Mild fine carbonation. Nice tangy lemon - pleasantly sharp. Little citric peel underneath. Dry, almost dusty malts underneath. Light dry finish. Hop spice linger. Pretty drinkable.

Cask at Guildford Arms, Edinburgh. Good sized creamy of white head, nice wee bit lacing, hazy amber body. Sweet sugary nose, tropical and citrus notes. Flavour is citrus, particularly lemon and grassy bitter aftertaste. Lemongrass cuts through well. Good lasting bitterness on the finish. Mouthfeel is smooth and silky with no carbonation. Ridiculously easy to drink.

Scopey (6865) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 31, 2014
Cask at the Claret thanks to Dave via Colin. It pours lightly hazy amber with a small bubbly head. The nose is earthy, tea, peach, orange and spicy notes. The taste is bitter, earthy, tea-like, citrus peel, spicy bitterness, peach and caramel with a lingering bitter-earthy finish. Medium body and soft carbonation. Interesting and good depth.

jamestulloch (1393) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 2, 2014
UPDATED: MAY 10, 2014 Cask at The Vintage and The Pantry. Clear golden body with a thin white head. Light lacing. Aroma of lemongrass, elderflower and straw. Sweet flavour of peach, ginger, apricot and lightly roasted malts. Light peppery finish. Medium body with an oily texture. Flat carbonation. A touch sweeter than I’d like, but this is a very distinctive, tasty beer. Very nice.

Cask-conditioned at the Three Tuns, Bristol 25/1/2014. Amber coloured with a slight white head. Citrus fruits, some pineapple, green tea and a lingering slightly herbal, dry finish. Unusual and enjoyable.

Cask@bow bar
fruity orange and mango nose, pale offwhite lacing. Bitter tea tanins complement the citrus peel lupulin hit well with a very long tannic bitter finish. The lemongrass creates a soft floral note which contrasts the bitterness well. Good stuff for a new release.
