Cask. Clear amber, still, small bubbly white head, light lacing. Aroma is light, musty dried flowers. Body is light, smooth, soft carbonation. Taste is thin toffee and orange, shandy, peppery spice, varnish, dry straw. The varnish element grated with the food a bit.

FatPhil (10810) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 26, 2015
Cask (Angleterre, Helsinki)
Black tea aroma. Pale, frothy head. Ewwwww, sour taste. And now I get that in the aroma too. Minerally and almost chalky. Finish is packed full of popcorn. Such a shame it’s on the turn, this would be a good sessionable pale bitter.

mjs (5312) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 26, 2015
(Cask at Angleterre, 20150426) The beer poured pale golden and clear. Its head was small and white and it lasted long. Aroma had fruitiness, grass and grain. Palate was medium bodied with low carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, grain, tartness, sourness, sweetness and bitterness. Aftertaste was mildly sour and bitter. The sourness was too weird but otherwise nice brew.

ladnewton (1614) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 12, 2015
Cask at the Magpie & Crown, Brentford on 31st January 2015. Slightly hazy amber with shallow off-white foam and partial lacing. Hoppy, yeasty aromas. Rich biscuit malts and mildly citric hops in-mouth. Finish is a continuation of maltiness, but with a bitter note developing in rear of mouth, whilst fruitiness resounds elsewhere. Light-bodied with a zingy mouthfeel.

Fruity, grapey kind of aroma. Slightly cloudy. Really vinegary tasting. Not a fan at all. Won't be ordering this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
