From cask at the Globe. Served a copper color with a decent head that fades to lacing. Aroma of some citrus, bit of fruit sweetness and malt in the background. Taste is a mild caramel sweetness, bit of fruit and spice. Mild bitterness and a fairly dry finish. Fairly medium body, quite smooth. Nice balance. Enjoyable beer good for a few. Worth a try.

UPDATED: AUG 2, 2012 Cask at The Globe, 07/28/2012. Copper pour, thin one-finger frothy head, nice retention. Aroma moderately malty,bread-like, mild fruitiness, English hops. Taste follows suit, not as sweet: caramel malts, mild bitterness. Medium thin body, low carbonation. Something nice to drink in Hong Kong.

Shared with northropfrye at the Globe in Hong Kong. Served warm, which was unusual for me. Still, it had a nice dark amber appearance, and a tasty bittersweet citrus taste. Enjoyable.

Cask at the Globe, Hong Kong. Orange/amber colour. Hoppy aroma. Not crazy bitter, some sweet fruitiness here. Quality beer.

larsga (7251) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 20, 2012
Medium white head. Clear amber body. Faint orangey resiny aroma. Dry wooden resiny taste with fruity notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel with, predictably, low carbonation. Dry resiny orangey aftertaste with metallic spicy notes. It’s nice, but a bit harsh. (0.5l cask at The Globe, Hong Kong.)
