Bottle from Corks of Cotham. Deep gold in colour with a short-lived white head and moderate carbonation. tropical fruit aroma of grapefruit and pineapple with a suggestion of pine. Flavour had more fruit, solid, biscuity malts, leading to a dryish, slightly peppery finish. Enjoyable.

(Cask at Kitty’s, 20141213) The beer poured golden and clear. Its head was small, white, dense and it lasted long. Aroma had fruitiness, pine, grass and earth. Palate was medium bodied with low carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, cirticness, sweetness, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was watery, hoppy and bitter. A tasty hoppy English ale.

laiti (6215) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 10, 2014
Cask @ Gallows Bird. Aroma is rather fruity with hops, some pineapple and mango. Also hints of hay. Flavour has minerals, fruity hops and mango. Finishes bitter and a bit acrid with minerals, herbs and nettles. The minerals and acrid tones disturb too much at the end of the glass. More fruits please!
