rosenbergh (6672) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 27, 2013
Cask at the St Urho's, Helsinki, Finland. Clear red colour with a small off-white head. Mild floral hops, lots of metal coins and some malt in the aroma. The flavour is floral hops, mild metal, moderate bitterness and some berries. Watery and harsh bitter. Not that enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cask (Black Door, Helsinki, Helsinki)
Lovely rich sweet fruity aroma for a bitter - swear there are almost cherries in it, thw fruitiness is to tangible. Looks great for a simple ruddy bitter - lovely persistent spongy head. First sip gave me a wow, not sure why, but it was just an outburst of joy from my psyche to have the drink in my mouth, this is vastly better than my prior mikkeller mess in every way. Such a soft palate, beautiful gentle carbonatio. A lovely rich malty body, some clear caramelly barley sweetness, and a really full earthy twiggy bitterness - lovely! Slight mushroominess accompanies the dry resiny finish. I did feel the effects of the alcohol in the mikkeller k:rap, but this is exuding a wonderful drinkability - every sip makes me want to take another, and the mellowness that the "yum" provides makes me feel soberer, just with a sense of well-being that bitter is still being brewed like this. (And of course that it’s available to me too!)

tombyars (1354) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - MAR 12, 2012
Tasted this premium bitter in the Last Post, Paisley (JDW) in April 2010. Cask, handpump dispense. Crystal clear pale copper in colour with a thin white head. Dusty floral notes in the intense hop aroma. Good robust mouthfeel and poor lacing. Pale malts give complex juicy fruit notes of kiwi, lychees and hints of elderflowers. Bitter hop resins give a dry woody note in the short aftertaste. Good bitter sweet balance in the moreish finish. An excellent session ale and highly recommended.

TEJA (1283) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 14, 2011
Cask at Oliver Twist. Thinn lace. Pale amber color. Marvelous Brittish hop aroma with some nice pale malts in the background. After some time a small but lasting citrus bitterness in the taste. A litle too sweet for a top score.
