Cask, Named after a rare breed of chicken that originates from the state of Ohio in the USA, Buckeye is an easy-drinking, well-hopped pale ale, brewed with a blend of American and New Zealand hops, producing an orange, citrus fruit aroma and a refreshing level of bitterness.

Svesse (6716) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - JAN 17, 2015
(Cask at Akkurat, Stockholm, 17 Oct 2014) Pale golden colour with foamy, white head. Malty, fruity nose with peaches, flowers and dried fruit. Malty, slightly fruity taste with notes of peaches, pineapple, grainy malt, grass and a gentle bitterness in the finish. Light body, with balanced sweetness. On the thin side, but fresh and tasty. Quite nice.

Shot (197) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - JUN 3, 2014
Out of the cask at Dean Swift pub near the London Bridge. Golden color with a thin white head. Subtle aromas of floral hops and malt. Flavors of toasty malt, nutty and bready notes, and a bit of citrus. Clean finish. Light mouthfeel. Only 3.5% ABV. For a very low alcohol beer, this is very tasty and the perfect pint to go with a sandwich.

Holmen1 (3135) - Stavanger, NORWAY - APR 17, 2014
Fra fat på The Rake, Borough Market april-14, sammen med Håkon: gardinfilm. Litt humlearoma med gress og sitrus. Mer gress i den lette bitterheten. Mye smak og ettersmak for så lav voltstyrke, men jeg blir fort av den. Golden ales er sjelden det helt store.

Oakes (13138) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 24, 2014
Golden, aroma is lightly fruity hops with a splash of pedio. Mild bitterness, tropical fruits...good balance. Tasty bitter. The pedio isn’t really there on the palate, thankfully.
