Cask at the GBBF. Golden with a small white head. Aroma of fruit, grain and straw with a touch of diacetyl. Sweet grainy flavour with a fruity touch

GBBF. Cask. Hazy gold beer, little white head. Light dry palate. A bit too dry. Trace of sulphur in the somewhat raw pale malt. Decent bitter orange hops but not enough to save this messy beer. Too dry!

Cask (handpump) at Great British Beer Festival, day 3, on 4 August 2011. Gold in colour. Clean, fresh and drinkable. Pleasant enough but not a huge amount to it, to be honest. There is a delicate grapefruit twist and a surprisingly dry bitterness (considering the use of Cascade hops) but the overall effect is rather restrained. Good to see a rather staid regional brewer waking up to the allure of US hop varieties but I would have preferred something with a bit more aromatic punch. Perhaps removing the sparkler would have helped.

Cask conditioned at The Royal Blenheim, Oxford. Gold with white head. Hoppy, fresh, citrus note right at the start, bitter, drying, really pretty decent.

Cask (handpump) @ GBBF 2011, Great British Beer Festival, Earls Court Exhibition Centre, London, England.

Clear medium orange yellow colour with a small to average, frothy, fair lacing, mostly diminishing, white head. Aroma is moderate malty, toasted, fruity, pale malt, light hoppy. Flavor is moderate sweet and light bitter with a average to long duration. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is flat. [20110802]

FatPhil (14002) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 19, 2011
UPDATED: AUG 28, 2011 Cask (GBBF2011, Tuesday) with sparkler (6:3:6:3:11=2.9)
Dull. Bugger all hops. Very disappointed given the pump-clip. It’s just a boring bitter.
Rerate: Cask (GBBF2011, Thursday) no sparkler (6+:3:6:4:13=3.2)
Sweet malted barley aroma. Toffee-ish palate, bready light grains. Much more alive when not sparkled to death.

Theis (15152) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 17, 2011
