Desverger (5776) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 31, 2015
Cask@The Bull, Streatham, London (30/12/2015) - golden amber pour with white head. Toasty malty aroma and taste with some notes of caramel, light buttery, vague hoppy backing, watery body, bitter finish. Loved and devoured this stuff about 20 years ago, just not the same any more :(

thellgren (608) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 30, 2015
Pint (cask) draught @ The Gregorian, Bermondsey, London. Clear amber colour. Didn’t notice any head. This has the usual flavours from malts and fruity hops, but a bit watery. A bit too light for me.

Cask. Short review at a birthday. Amber orange, still, small ring of white head. Body is medium, smooth, low carbonation. Taste is sweet and malty, smooth hop character, softly fruity. In good condition, this is a nicely balanced bitter.

Cimbasso (558) - - OCT 2, 2014
Darkish golden colour and a very quickly-fading head. Slightly hoppy aroma and a lightly fruity, hoppy taste. Satisfyingly long, bitter finish. A light and dry bitter. A great London beer, beloved by most CAMRA members and beer aficionados, but not as fresh and vibrant as I remember it from 30 years ago. Or is it me?
