larsga (6323) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 9, 2013
Small creamy offwhite lasting head. Clear pale yellow body. Faint strawy dusty wooden aroma. Dry-sweet fruity floral taste with dusty notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, flat, smooth mouthfeel. Dryish dusty strawy wooden aftertaste with lingering herbal floral notes. Nice, but a little low on flavour. (0.284l cask at The Three-Legged Mare, York.)

olliejobbins (948) - Surrey, ENGLAND - FEB 22, 2013
Pint at the last drop pub in York. Pours a very slightly fuzzy gold with a small white head. Lacing all the way to the bottom. Aroma is very fruity and sweet with honey coming through. Tastes floral and peachy with a thin mouth feel. I don’t find it dry as others do but agree its a little oily. Very drinkable if a little too floral.

Grumbo (630) - Suffolk, ENGLAND - FEB 16, 2013
Cask handpull at Mr Foley’s, Leeds. Light, golden beer served with a cream head. Very easy drinking, zesty. I moved onto different beer after a pint but others I was with stayed on this all night, so for them it lived up to its name!
