3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
20/05/2013 Buskers Pub (handpump). Ambrata carica, molto intensa, con riflessi miele di castagno, schiuma bianca abbondante e discretamente persistente. Al naso sentori di malto, lieve tostato, luppolo, con note erbacee e agrumate. In bocca è equilibrata, malto ben presente, finale amaro discreto, non eccessivo. Corpo leggero, ottima beva, carbonazione soft. Non male!

Cask at Blackdoor, Helsinki. Dark amber in color with foamy white head. Fruity, tropical fruits to be more exact in aroma, some malts also in there. Taste is more mild, some grassy bitterness with hints of citrus and mild grapefruit. Mid-bitter in aftertaste as well.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask pour at Cask, Pimlico. Hoppy reds aren’t necessarily a big lure for me, and that’s what this beer was, regardless of the (now pretty capacious) "Bitter" category. Light copper pour, fairly clear, only medium carbonation. Bright citrus and hops in the nose, with a goodly amount of candy too. Mouthfeel a bit too slick, which tended to enhance the sweet malts perhaps a bit too much. Okay.
