Holmen2 (5436) - NORWAY - AUG 27, 2018
UPDATED: AUG 27, 2018 From cask at Wetherspoons at Victoria Station on transit from Gatwick to Heathrow 27.08.18. Served at an appropriate temperature using sparkler. Clear dark golden. Frothy and persisten beige head and lacing. Excellent aroma and taste of grassy English hops and pale malt. Pine and grass bitterness is lingering on. Full mouthfeel with little carbonation. Very quaffable.

On cask at Acorn Inn, pours a clear pale golden with a small white head. Aroma brings out bready malt and very light English hops. Flavour is along the same lines, with bready malt and subtle English floral hops. Very subtle and bready. Meh.

ianwelby (2126) - SCOTLAND - APR 26, 2018
UPDATED: APR 26, 2018 Clear golden, thin white head. Smell is light, dry citrus and anbitnof hop. Taste is grassy citrus, a touch of grapefruit, a little bit sugary to balance it and then an aftertaste that I can't quite place but doesn't do much for me. It's alright but I think I prefer the bottle for being a bit cooler.

On cask at The Golden Hind, Musbury. One of my favourite beers. Long malt caramel taste with hints of fruit. Lingering flavour, good head and lacing

ladnewton (2344) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 20, 2017
Cask at the Porter and Sorter, Croydon on 20th November 2017. Clear copper with off-white foam and full lacing. Pungent, earthy aroma of moist autumn leaves. Sweet malts, leafy hops and just a hint of salt. Grassy hops and caramel malts dominate the finish. A fair amount of body and a smooth mouthfeel. Pleasant.
