AshtonMcCobb (6409) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 21, 2017
On cask at the Caley Picture House. Appearance - golden with a decent head and a slight haze. Nose - elusive. Maybe some lemon and cereal. Taste - muesli generally. A touch of dry fruit but mostly dry cereal. Palate - light to medium bodied. The texture is a bit crunchy. Dry crunchy finish too. Overall - a bit gnarly but solid enough.

Scopey (14025) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 22, 2015
Cask at the Claret, Croydon. It pours clear amber with a small, bubbly white head. The nose is earthy, toasty grain, cereal leather and mild citrus. The taste is bitter-sweet, sweet tropical fruits, grapefruit, gooseberry, earth, leather and a touch of caramel with a drying finish. Medium body and soft carbonation. Nice sweet fruits on the taste. Not a game-changer, but drinks easy.

SlackerMads (3297) - DENMARK - JAN 15, 2015
Cask. Clear copper with a small off white head. Grain, light syrup, flowers, light green plants. Not exactly a flavour explosion, but inoffensive and goes down pretty easy. Relatively little sweetness, soft bitter and light dry finish.

BlackHaddock (6986) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 1, 2013
500ml Bottle conditioned: BBD Mar 2014, poured into a UK pint sleeve at home on 31 July 2013. Dull golden colour, with an off-white head. The nose and taste came across as hoppy, bitter, dry, slightly fruity (mixed), toast, some wood notes, with a mild grapefruit finish. Nothing took over the tasting: a pleasant enough blend, but lacked a bit of character and depth. The cask version might be better?

Beer5000 (6328) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 27, 2013
500 ml bottle sampled in 2008. Hazy golden body with an off-white head. Strong aroma of grapefruit, other fruits and bubblegum. Flavor has some caramel malt, fruit, something that feels almost chemical and moderate bitterness. Thin and watery body, aftertaste feels almost dead. Something might be wrong here but its not too obvious what it is.
