Cask@St. Urho’s Pub. Clear deep copper color, small white head. Butterscotch and malts in the nose. Light bodied. Slightly earthy flavor, light nutty notes, hints of toffee. Very watery palate. Feels dead.

jjsint (627) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 3, 2013
Cask at White Star, Stoke. Golden with a perfect white head. Very little nose: a bit of hops and citrus. Taste is sweet and salty, with a bit of umami/sour on the way down. Wooden Hand beers are a bit odd in my experience. On another day I would praise them for their bold approach but today I just want a pint. Drinkable but one is certainly enough.

StueyD (1108) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - OCT 21, 2013
A mid golden orange coloured beer with a frothy white head. A pungent hop aroma, peach and a hint of orange, then a light biscuity malt aroma comes through. Dry mouthfeel. A fruity hop flavour, a tad bitter, pithy grapefruit with peach, is followed by a dry, bready tasting maltiness. The finish is bitter and hoppy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pint at the Schooner, Gateshead. As a few raters have pointed out, quite dark for a Blond Ale. Dark gold with a tight white head. Fruity aroma. Again, flavours I tend to associate more with bitters: apples and brown bread. A little sweet..

mjs (4438) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 10, 2013
(Cask at St. Urho’s Pub, 20130410) The beer poured amber and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had malts, molasses and yeast. Palate was medium bodied and dry with low carbonation. Flavours were malts, molasses, bread, tartness, homebrew, yeast and bitterness. Aftertaste was yeasty and acrid. Either a bad beer or a cask gone bad.

Pours clear copper color with a small head. Aroma of mild grass, some hops, citrus fruits and caramel. Flavour of caramel malts, fruits, hay and herbs. Easy to drink.

A nice enough pint of bitter. Golden in colour with a small head. Yeasty aroma gives a clue to the mildly hoppy and bitter flavour.
