Holmen1 (1995) - Stavanger, NORWAY - APR 16, 2014
0,5 flaske kjøpt på Prohibtion Wines på Muswell Hill og delt med Steven i hagen deres i fantastisk aprilvær: nesten ikke karbonert, så skum og munnfølelse mangler. Ganske god smak med mango (litt overmoden) og andre tropiske frukter. Forgettable.

Small coarseish offwhite head. Clear amber body. Resiny grape and herbs aroma with catty notes. Dry-sweet spicy kiwi and gooseberry taste with herbal wooden notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft, flat mouthfeel. Dryish fruity gooseberry aftertaste with spicy resiny wooden notes. Nice, drinkable, pleasant. (0.237l cask at Union Tavern, London.)

AdiBeer (591) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 15, 2014
Aroma: citrus, tropical fruits, some malts. Appearance: clear gold to amber, small frothy white head. Taste: medium sweet. Palate: bitters come up, medium to long finish, citrus fruits, maybe some pineapple. Overall: OK IPA, standards are very high and this one falls short, still a good drink. Pint at the Oslo Restaurant, London.

Cask at Charlotte Despard, Archway. Strong passion fruit on the nose. Lovely clear and golden. Much biscuit. Significant and not overwhelming hopping. Pleasant but not exceptional. Worth a try.

rosenbergh (6077) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 24, 2014
Cask at the Gallows Bird, Espoo, Finland. Clear golden colour with a tiny white head. Grapes, mild tartness, mould (in a good way if possible) and mild hops in the aroma. The flavour is a bit dull... hoppy bitterness, sawdust and malt. Some bitterness in the aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cask @ Gallows Bird Real Ale Festival 2014

Pours orange with a bubbly head. Aroma of caramely malts, fruity hoppy notes and hints of citrus and grass. Taste is smooth, malty and crisp with caramely toffee notes, fruits, citrus, grass and exotic notes. Finish is sweetish, bitter, malty and caramely. Hoppiness kicks in very late, but leaves a nice fruity hoppy taste to mouth. A bit unbalanced, could be slightly more fresh.
