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

Pours a clear dark amber with a small creamy off-white head. Malty burnt caramel and fruitcake (brandy and fruit) aroma. Sweet malty beginning followed by burn’t brandy soaked raisins with a long mellow bitter finish. A very nice pint, I think I’ll have another.

Cask Conditioned Gravity Dispense St Albans BF 2010. An amber coloured beer with off-white wisps of head. A fruity aroma with berries and wood. Fruity malts in the mouth. A nice old fashioned stronger English ale which is nicely boozy.

DSG (10000) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAY 18, 2012
[5/12/12] Cask at Charlie’s Bar in Copenhagen. Clear amber. Earthy hops aroma with some somewhat toasty malt. Flavor has some mellow maltiness, a bit bready and toasty, with a bit of sweetness at first, but quickly turns bitter and hoppy, earthy and citric, to create a mouth-drying finish. Silky mouthfeel. Very nice.
