Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - AUG 9, 2008
Cask at GBBF 08. Clear amber. Not too hoppy or flavoursome on the nose or at first sip, but it then delivers a fantastic nutty finish and aftertaste. Very nice.

FatPhil (10822) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 6, 2007
Cask (Gallows Bird, Espoo, Real Ale Festival 2004) This was an odd one - quite simply, it smelt off. Yet it tasted pretty darn good. Very full flavoured, with no sharp peaks. Lingering bitterness provided the finish. 2nd best of the fest, for us. Should re-rate.

Cask: Golden dark with nearly no head & lacings. A pleasant light sweet malt aroma and taste. Very soft. Some caramel & cookie. Quite OK!
