STBF07. Beer of the festival amazing beer, this is currently being made only for bottling with tesco at the moment. It will be avalible to everyone else in 6 months time, unless you come to blackfriers in 2 weeks time wehn i may have a cask. Aroma is purely raw amarrilo an syrian golding hops with a good dash of elderflower. Taste is similar so hoppy delicious i would want to drink this all day, elderflower hop juice amazing!

Leighton (10419) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 13, 2011
Gravity cask at the George, London. Pours hazy gold with no head, really. Not too much action on the nose, slight florals and sugary malts. Flavor is damn good, though, with a nicely layered malt character. Notes of honey, mild nuts, demerera suga, caramel, light bread, and some pine hops coming through at the end. Medium in body with fine carbonation. Finishes with great balance, not too sweet, lots going on, licks of hops linger on the tongue. Very damn good.

Wundoo (3) - SCOTLAND - JUN 1, 2010 does not count
Fantastic ale for converting continental style lager drinkers to real ale. Particularly after a hot day involving exercise. Fantastically creamy, redolent of boddington’s but strong and sweet with enough hoppiness to keep you gulping. Stays sweet to the bottom of the glass. Not a complex beer, peach and hops and cream. Excellent ale for kicking off an early, "unplanned" evening session.

Capa (1963) - Manama, BAHRAIN - MAY 14, 2011
Golden with a white head. Lightly biscuity, some sweet fruits, and a strong earthy hop presence. Medium bodied. Rather refreshing with a crisp finish. Enjoyable. (Cask at Memphis Taproom, Philadelphia)

allmyvinyl (2740) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 8, 2013
Cask at The White Lady, JDW, Edinburgh. Pours clear golden yellow, good white head. Massive tropical fruit aromas - mmm! Lots of citrus going on, some light malt if you look for it. Taste is gentle hop bite, more light bread malt and tropical fruit. Really enjoyed this.

wickedpete (634) - Lexington Park, Maryland, USA - JAN 23, 2008
Golden yellow, a slight white head. Aroma is sweet with some honey, very floral. The flavor is light and feathery. Sweetness primarily, a bit of citrus and honey.
