Cask. Golden to amber color, thick white head. Apple nose, light malty, hints of citrus and unripe fruit. Apple taste, sour notes, very light hoppy. Light body, creamy texture, flat carbonation.

Will go out of my way for a decent pint of deuchars nice session pint plenty of citrus (orange?) And a lively creamy pint goes down a treat.

jjsint (3094) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JAN 12, 2015
Cask at the Half Moon, Bishops Stortford. Golden brown with a small white head and big ass lacing. Aroma of digestive biscuits, weak iced tea, hint if orange peel. Taste is sweet, light and refreshing. Very well balanced with the occasional hint of sour/bitter. Inconsequential, bordering on milquetoast, mouthfeel, but it’s fitting for this beer. Didn’t this used to be better, or have my expectations grown?

Renobob (2064) - Besançon, FRANCE - JAN 5, 2015
IPA à l'ancienne. Légère, sans bulle, amertume finale. Ca change beaucoup des IPA modernes. Correcte.

Mjp12 (1864) - York, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 26, 2014
Can be a decent session bitter, if served in good condition, but this wasn’t .

Russo (2011) - Hemhofen, GERMANY - DEC 19, 2014
Clear Amber color with a thin white head. Aroma is floral hops and fruity. Citrus notes as orange and lemon. Flavor is quite sweet, hints of Malt and caramel with a nice bitterness at end. Low carbonation with s medium body. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone 4S

Tarosama (84) - Northumberland, ENGLAND - NOV 28, 2014
Clear golden colour. Nice head retention, nice flowery hop and right amount of bitterness. Pleasant finish. Drinkable all night when served from freshly opened cask.

Iznogud (3800) - CROATIA - NOV 14, 2014
Cask at the Last Drop, Edinburgh. Pours golden with small white head. Caramel malty and bit spicy. Bland and boring. Disappointment.

Stuu666 (13395) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 19, 2014
Cask at the Ghillie Dhu. Pours light orange, nose is light fruit, buttery, taste is similar.

Jow (3924) - New York, USA - AUG 18, 2014
So this on tap all over Edinburg but my rating is from drunken walkabout. Gold pour with faint hops aromas. Tastes are all middle the road hopping characteristics. Citrus and pine but subdued. Bitter palate.
