Cask at The Harp. Quality stuff. Pours a clear copper, with a small off white head. Big banana hit surprisingly, toffee, sugary, thin in the mouth, but very smooth.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Good bitter this - fairly sweet malt, with hints of fruit, toffee and nuts. Smooth and easy-drinking which makes it good for a session ale, but far more interesting than most in that category. Good stuff.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask handpull, SIBA Champions Fest 2011, The Canalhouse, Nottingham. Copper-bronze, lacing white slick. Aroma of dates, figs, oranges, a snort of exotic spice: cinnamon? Flavour: not fully dried stone fruits (plums,dates, apricots), milk choc afters. Fragrant, slightly chewy...and a little bizarre. Nothing like anything else I’ve had today. Fair play to them. Liked this.

UPDATED: NOV 2, 2010 Cask på Bree Louise, Euston 28 Sep 10. Rødbrun. Lavt stabilt svakt farget skum. Lovende fruktig aroma. Smaken er litt søt. Karamell. Forsiktig fruktig ettersmak med antydning til bitterhet.

Cask at Ascot Festival 2010. Pours a dark amber colour with a thin white head. Plenty of fruit in the aroma, the taste is malty with a hint of toffee with a dry bitter finish.

(Cask at Pineapple, London) A fruity and hoppy bitter. That’s something you seldom get. I liked this beer. The fruitiness and maltiness were nicely balanced and bitterness wiped both flavours away quite nicely. Bitterness didn’t last too long so the next sip brought all the other flavours back again.
