jmgreenuk (4006) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 30, 2012
Cask at the Pretty Bricks, Walsall. Poured a golden straw colour with a thin white head and broken lace. The aroma is weak but malty. The flavour is medium to strong bitter with some malty notes. There sadly isn’t much else. It’s a nice enough ale but does not have enough to set it apart from the mass produced fizzy lagers.

Cask at GBBF 2010. A light golden beer with a thin white head. The aroma has strong notes of citrusy hops. The flavor is sweet with notes of citrusy hops and malt - but somewhat boring - not enough.

Cask at blackfriers. Pours cloudy even after 3 days of settling? Aroma has loads of sulphur to start however as you go through it, grassy hop an pale malt come through. Taste is a bit minimal, grassy with hints at sulphur salts, kind of dies in the mouth but drinkable enough.
