minutemat (2043) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 18, 2013
Cask at Beacons Festival, Skipton. An ok session beer with some fruity bitterness & citrus hops but everything in very mild doses. Like all the beers at this festival was a bit flat, so would have to try in a proper pub to really appreciate.

stravale (2395) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - AUG 6, 2013
Cask @ Golden Rule, Edinburgh [020813]
Golden, dense white head, some lacing
Aroma - Very soft fruity sweet malt, light citrus hops, light nose
Taste of soft fruity malts, soft citrus, touch of lemon, light fruits, soft lemon, a bit dull
Palate - Medium body, fairly oily, light sweet palate. Finish as main flavour, soft, cleans off palate
Overall - Easy going, ok, bit bland to be honest. Maybe the condition is not right here - worth a re-rate

Medium beige creamy head. Clear golden body. Light spicy strawy aroma with fruity wooden notes. Dry-sweet dusty wooden taste with strawy fruity notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft, smooth mouthfeel. Dryish dusty strawy freshly sawn wood aftertaste with floral dandelion notes. Really nice. Highly drinkable, yet has real character. (0.284l cask at The Blue Boar, York.)

jaguarxj6 (36) - chesterfield, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - JAN 10, 2013
Cask. Not your run of the mill pale beer. This is a fine brew from an interesting brewery. Taste is fruity but not overpowering. this stands head and shoulders above most pale bitters. Shame more pubs don,t stock this wonderful stuff.
