harrisoni (16928) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2008
Cask gravity at SIBA BF, Paddock Wood. Brewed to an old recipe found somewhere by the brewery. Very deep red, thin beige head. Syrupy malty ESB style beer. Could be in better condition. Some deep strawberry jam fruit. Just needs ab it of conditon to be a bit less obviously syrupy. Very dry on finish.

yngwie (16423) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 16, 2012
Cask at the Wharf. A creamy off-white to light beige head sis on to of a clear, amber body. Some curtains show up after a while. Mostly fruity on the nose, a touch of liquorice shows up, along with a hint of roasted malts and some dried apricots. Medium body, quite a lot of carbonation for a cask beer, still soft. Liquorice, some roasted malts and quite a lot of fruitiness in the flavour. Dried apricots, some notes of raisins and a little citrusy hint too. Pleasant bitterness, both initially and in the end. Certainly a nice one, could readily drink a few of these. 120816
