Garrold (3657) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 17, 2015
Cask. Parcel Yard, King’s Cross. Clear gold. Bubbly, sticky, bright white head. Decent, peachy, grapefruit hop to this. Some piny notes, too. Taste is crisp bitter. Creamy palate, that the hops give a lift to. Finishes brisk, but bright bitter. Good, sessionable cask beer. Smells great.

Aroma: grain and bread malts. Appearance: clear gold, medium, creamy, white head. Taste: light bitter. Palate: soft carbonation, malts continue, some floral hops coming up, turning light bitter and dry in the finish. Overall: OK Bitter, lacks complexity. Pint at The Willow Walk, Victoria.

SlackerMads (2615) - DENMARK - NOV 16, 2014
Cask. Clear golden with a small good lacing white head. A bit watery with a slight iron thing in the mothfeel. Some eggs as well. Other than that it has little to offer in terms of flavour; some biscuit, bread and wood. Little sweetness, light acidic, medium bitter. Nah.

JonnyDarcy (6) - ENGLAND - NOV 7, 2014 does not count
Cask @ The Crooked Billet E5 - Amber beer. Taste is slightly flowery, modest malt/caramel, fruit, mild bitterness and a savoury finish. There is a subtle "blue cheese" flavour from the Nelson Sauvin hops right at the start of the finish which is surprisingly nice. A really good, flavoursome 4% beer actually .
