Rating från baklogg. Tap@Queens Head. Ganska doftlös men lite kakig arom finns. Smakar lika lite där mest blommigheten känns igen.

mjs (4933) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 14, 2014
(Cask at Black Door, 20141114) The beer poured amber and clear. Its head was small and white. Aroma had malts, earth and sweetness. Palate was medium bodied with low carbonation. Flavours were sweetness, earth, molasses, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was malty and bitter. A decent malty brew with a hop twist from English hops.

Cask, The Last Plantagenet, Leicester. Golden with a thin bubbly head. Aromas are biscuit malts with grassy notes and nutty lager character. Lemon with gluey yeast. Flavours are sweet grain with mellow lemon and peppery yeast. Some slight off notes. OK.

niquillis (1290) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 3, 2014
On cask at Wheatsheaf (JDW), Stoke. Pours pale golden with white head. Dry pale ale with a slight skunk aroma. Quite a Germanic dryness to it. Nice.

Cask at The Moon Under Water (JDW), Watford on 30 Oct. Poured a clear, light amber, with a thin white head. Aroma was very light, with some grain, corn, mineral and that SN plasticy yeast note. Grassiness in the flavour, with some unripe fruit and brown sugar. Finish was copper, flat malt and resin.

wimpyjoe (4938) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 24, 2014
Cask @ Stick or Twist, Leeds. Golden with a small head. Medium-bodied bitter with a medium bitterness. Crisp enough with a malt nose but very ordinary.

berkshirejohn (4818) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 22, 2014
Cask at the Hamilton Hall (JDW), Liverpool Street.. Pale amber with a ring of white head; bready aroma; watery body; light toasted malt taste; with a weak grassy bitterness; and a dry finish. Rather underwhelming.
