Cask handpull @ The Rake. Amber with a wispy off white head. Grassy hop, orange, malt and sawdust in the nose with some caramel and butter notes. Sweet and malty with hints of vanilla, orange, caramel and a bit of hop bitterness in the swallow. Not too shabby...

FatPhil (14021) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 6, 2007
Cask (Gallows Bird, Espoo, Real Ale Festival 2004) Very smooth bitter. Full-flavoured in the mouth, but with a long bitter finish. Unexceptional, but pretty good example of the style.

[Cask at Charlies Bar, Copenhagen] A hazy orange beer with a lazing off-white head. The aroma is sweet with a presence of flowers and hops. The flavor is sweet malty with a strong note of fruit, and lots of hops, leading to a good bitter end. I could drink another pint or 10 of this.
