Cask (Gallows Bird, Espoo, Real Ale Festival 2003)
Very deep red, lovely bready head. Rich sweet aroma, caramelly and
chocolatey. Lovely smooth palate, carbonation low, and softened by the
sweetness. Chocolatey taste. Good mild, just what you want from 3.8%.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cask Conditioned at Oliver Twist, Stockholm
Dark amber color. The aroma is a bit sour, I expect to see fruit flies at any time. Caramel flavor, smooth but dry mouthfeel, with a light sourness out of place; correctly bitter. Probably not in good conditions.
