Garrold (2691) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 27, 2015
Tap. Sheffield Tap. Murky amber. Film of grey head. Woody, earthy hop. Some citric rind. The tea comes through as floral and tannic. Taste is zesty bitter, and earthy dry. Palate is more of the tannin, in tooth furring mode. Finishes dry, and light bitter. I got the lemongrass thing at the end, but only after I’d read the commercial description! Ok.

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 (9382) - 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.
