Cask at GBBF 2016. It pours clear deep brown with a medium beige head. The aroma is earthy, bitter - sweet, gravel, coffee, hint of plastic and balsamic vinegar. The taste is smooth, bitter - sweet, caramel, dried fruits, toast, pepper and fruit cake with a mellow finish. Light+ body and soft carbonation. I am not so keen on the aroma, but found it to be well-rounded and drinkable enough.

GBBF Day 1. Cask. Clear amber beer, patchy ream colour head. Palate is light and semi dry, modest carbonation. Tangy caramel malts. Light floral bitterness. Modest dried fruits. Dry finish. Tastes like an old fashioned bitter more than a mild. Clean.

Cask at Chippenham Beer Festival. Deep brown. Yay- found a mild amongst the last few undrunk barrels at the tail end of the last night of the fest. Itís dark brown, maybe a little watery but with pleasant flavours of chocolate, malt and a light roastiness. Very easy to knock this one back. You really can imagine slaking your thirst with this after a day down the mines.

Cask at the fleece, Penwortham. I imagine the name of this is supposed to be funny because it has the word ícockí in it. It would be a better beer if it wasnít quite so bland and thin. Honey and lazy near-puns are the two things I hate in beer most of all.

Cask at the fleece, Penwortham. Hahaha, you guys are HILARIOUS. Knocker up, geddit? Itís like getting someone pregnant with your child! Oh, top bantz. Kudos. Kudos squared. Awesomeness beyond time itself. Regardless of the Archbishop of Banterbury that comes up with the names for these products, what we have here is a clear brown beer with a thin tan head, honey aroma, faint chocolate at the back. Clean finish. Just get the names into the 21st century lads, eh?

Cask, half pint at JDWs Manchester & County. Tiny layer leaving spotty lacing behind. Clear amber coloured body. Resin-like aroma. Malt-fruity taste with peaches, marmalade, caramel and distant notes of honey. Fine bittersweet finish. Quite well bodied. A good one after the long journey from TromsÝ to Manchester, 21.01.2013.

Three Bís Shuttle Ale
Tasted this in the Last Post, Paisley (JDW) in February 2011. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear orange amber in colour with a thin white creamy head. Distinctive aroma of Cadburys Crunchie Bar, short in the nose. Thin mouthfeel and poor lacing. Pale malts deliver a sweet malty bite with clear heather honey, golden syrup, tinned peaches and burnt caramel notes evident. Slight prickle of hop flowers in the short dusty bitter aftertaste. Finish is sweet and malty as mead like flavours give a smooth warmth to the back of the throat. An excellent session ESB and well recommended.

Vague sweet aroma. Dry body, but not much flavour. Simple sweet malts, and itís been aged to dryness. BB Sept 0X for unreadable X. Just about survived the over aging, quite impressive for a weak beer.

[cask at Cloisters, Edinburgh] Hazy deep gold, very thing head. Carbonation pretty lacking. Sweaty, musty aroma - some malt and stewed fruit. Same on the flavour. Not sure if it wasnít at itís best, or if this is the actual taste - not that great, unfortunately. Had to take it back for something else [071011]

Cask at GBBF 2011, Day 2. Pours clear brown with a light, bubbly head. Faint dark fruits and light, tangy malts in the aroma. Light sweet flavor, tangy, toasty, and faintly roasty. (Wow, how about that little turn of phrase?) Light bodied with fine carbonation. Mild finish, slightly bland, some tangy dark malts. Kind of left me hanging on some fronts but not altogether bad.
