wyzzywyz22 (2066) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - MAR 22, 2010
Cask, Ship and Mitre, Liverpool. Mid brown sorta colour with a thin off white head. Restrained sweet malt aroma, with a slight fruitiness. Similar yarn flavour wise. Quite fresh, with some hops kicking in towards the dryish bitter finish. All in all fairly drinkable, not sure if it was Smithy’s fault about the iceberg thing though ?

sm89walt (1792) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUN 19, 2009
Cask - JDW, Canterbury. Dark amber, slightly unclear with a frothy, off-white head. Caramel, nuts, a light fruity sweetness and a woody undertone on the nose. Quite a bitter flavour profile: a grassy, bitter fruit dominance with some initial sweetness leading to a lasting, burnt and dry yet refreshing hoppy finish. Medium body, good palate texture with a nutty aftertaste.

cask 330ml 4,6€ at Old Bank Turku 020609 hazy copper airy beige head first pint of the day 2nd day. First mouth feel bit watery then kick of fruity malty and kick of bitter hops in aftertaste. My mouth said that serving temperature was more than 13 Celsius but thermometer on cask’s fridge in the basement said 8C. Over critical client again on the road.

FatPhil (9977) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 2, 2009
Cask (Angleterre, Helsinki)
Lovely fruity muesli with honey - big on the grains. Soft carbonation, smooth palate. Grapefruit zest bitterness. Some fruitiness, but the hoppiness is also quite pungently resiny. Perhaps too pungent for my tastes. Long pungent resiny hoppy finish. Lots of character, a very solid strong ale. (Though weak in alcohol for ’strong ale’, as such, but very much in that style.)
