ladnewton (1815) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 6, 2016
Cask at CBC, Islington on 13th December 2015. Slightly hazy amber with off-white thinning foam and partial lacing. Earthy, malty and slightly cheesy aroma. Fruity hoppiness in-mouth with citrus balanced by sweetening berries against a biscuity malt. Tangy, medium-sweet fruits, malts and upper-mouth bitter notes in finish. Zingy mouthfeel and plenty of body. Lush.

Towey1989 (1923) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 5, 2015
Cask at The Green Dragon, Leek (JDW) A clear golden colour with a medium white head. Aroma of gooseberry, melon, lemon, some grapefruit, subtle lime, a little biscuit and slight grassy hops. Taste of gooseberry, melon, lemon, some grapefruit, a little biscuit, weirdly subtle banana in there, honey and slight grassy hops. Medium bodied and soft carbonation. A dry, slightly spicy, citrus hop bitterness in the finish. A sweet, citrusy start and a dry, spicy finish. Nice flavour but served a little cold for my liking.

SilkTork (5569) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - OCT 27, 2015
JDW, Staines. Sweet and fruity. Ideal as a breakfast drink. I can’t take too much of these sweet pale beers, with or without hops, as they get a bit cloying after a while.

ManVsBeer (8778) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 26, 2015
Cask @ Sir Titus Salt, Bradford. Golden with a very small head. Tropical fruit hopped with a good nose in this respect. Has an easy-drinking texture for its strength and a low bitterness.
