Cask at the CP&K, Scopey’s Birthday Bash. Clear gold beer, little white head. Light dry palate with mild carbonation. Mild orange hops. Pretty dry finish. A bit non descript and I expect better from Roosters.

DruncanVeasey (7191) - NUNEATON, Top 18, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - APR 25, 2011
Cask handpull, The Old Bell Tavern, Harrogate, 18/04/11. Aroma of celery-smeared chopping board, English blossom (Hawthorn?), Yorkshire Snatch, Walkers chicken crips (one of the most pungent and overpoweringly pervasive aromas in the known universe- thanks to Octo for that one). Licked stone softness, Mother Shipton’s cave, stewed tea and rich tea, more Hawthorn, lemongrass soapiness but no real citrus. Packets of biscuits. Good, but overpowered by the loveliness of both the Salamander and Abbeydale.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 14, 2011
Cask at The Green Man, Stamford, Lincolnshire. Copper. Aroma had a flinty start. The some strawy malt, and the taste was the same: dry grass with some grapefruit sourness. Mid bitter finish. Edgy, interesting beer.

Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUL 10, 2010
Cask at the White Horse American Beer Festival, 2nd July 2010. Light amber. Grassy and resinous on the nose, with some tropical fruits too. Fruity but not too heavy. Very drinkable.
