3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

Cask in the Bree Louise. Golden colour, thin white foam. Very fruity hoppy aroma, tropical fruits. Full taste, initially sweet almost syrupy and a bit boozy malt, then big hop flavour. Fruity and not overly dry. Bitter finish. Well balanced and drinkable, nice pint.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tastes a bit like an ipa crossed with a best bitter, or perhaps a traditional English ipa? Some heather or other floral note, some spicy/soy note and a good robust finish. Tasty.
