3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask at the Prince Arthur (JDW), Fleet. Amber with a ring of white head; aroma of berry fruits - blackbery, raspberry and a trace of strawberry; softly bodied, but packed with sharp fruity flavours to match the aroma as well as a strong underlying bitterness; with a trace of honey to finish. An excellent golden ale.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: MAY 12, 2009 Anna:
Cask at Gallows Bird, Espoo
Fairly light orange, no head. Not much aroma. Slightly weak-in-taste
but fairly refreshing bitter. Sharp but mild hops. Not much else.
Overall feel is that it’s a bit watery and boring. The hops do stay
nicely in the finish.
Phil, same cask 2 days later:
Slightly beery, hoppy, but also touch vinegary aroma. Pleasant soft palate, low carbonation. Apple retronasally. Very dry and resiny bitter finish. Too resiny, maybe, a bit earthy and grainy.
Identical rating to Anna’s

Cask, Thomas Rigby’s Liverpool. Hazy golden yellow with a super creamy lingering white head. Really hoppy and tangy fruit flavour. Great body. Really liked this. Stoned is the way of the walk.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
(Same as previous.) Golden, creamy and big pale head. Mellow fruity hoppiness and vanilla like sweetness on the nose. Flavor bland, some sweet maltiness, not much hops around although finishes quite bitter. Light bodied, the sweetness makes it a bit juice like even. Drinkable.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cask@Beer Hunters, Pori
Golden color, creamy white head. A bit sticky, woody-hoppy aroma. Watery palate - there is some malts, but brew feels empty. Dry woody, leafy hoppy flavor. Dry aftertaste. Simple and below average.
