Cask (gravity) @ GBBF 09, Great British Beer Festival, Earls Court Exhibition Centre, London, England.
Clear light to medium yellow orange color with a small, fizzy, fair lacing, mostly diminishing, white to off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, toasted, butter. Flavor is moderate sweet and light to moderate bitter with a average duration. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is flat. [20090804]

Draft. A hazy pale golden beer with a thick white head. The aroma is malty combined with lighter notes of butter and straw. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt and straw as well as lighter notes of lemon, butter, and bread, leading to a dry bitter finish. The body is a bit light.

[email protected] Yellowish golden colour, small head. Aroma is earth, fruits, spices, mild oak as well as some bready malts. Flavour is lots of wood, some yeast as well as mildly diacetylic notes. Quite wooden in the finish.

Golden yellow coloured ale, grassy hop aroma, with a grassy laggery hop flavour.

omhper (25750) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - APR 14, 2011
Draught at O’Neills, Dublin. Clear pale golden, minimal head. Fruity nose with sligh tspicy hops. Light bodied with clean, spritzy mouthfeel. Slight salty bitterness. A straightforward beer, more in line with the commercial examples of kölsch than the more traditional ones.

Cask (gravity) at GBBF 2009, Day 1. Very pale straw colour. Unfortunately the aroma was dominated by a heavy diacetyl taint which masked any other elements, particularly in a delicate Kolsch style (would not have guessed at Kolsch as the style). Diacetyl is less noticeable on the palate but there was rather a paucity of any defining character in the flavour. Maybe a hint of yeast and something ever so slightly sour. Thin, somewhat watery mouthfeel. I had assumed the cask had not survived the journey too well but some of the other ratings, from closer to its home, are not too complementary either. If anything it seemed to me that this was aimed in the same direction as some of "Light" offerings that many US brewpubs feel compelled to produce. I’m prepared to give it a second chance but I certainly can’t say I enjoyed it too much on this showing.

Blonde colour. Mossy-herbal hop aroma. Soft, modest bitterness and some light leafy hops. Decent, fairly straightforward beer.

2.5
TBone (18228) - Pori, FINLAND - AUG 5, 2009
[email protected] Pale yellow color, small white head. Wet socks, diacetyl butterscotch nose. Flat mouthfeel. Pear, sweat, diacetylic flavor. Light lemony hops. Weird.

Christian (13823) - Odense, DENMARK - OCT 2, 2009
Cask at GBBF. Pale yellow with a small white head. Sweet malt aroma with diacetyl. Sweet and thin diacetyl bomb in the mouth.

3.4
Dogbrick (13789) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 22, 2012
Sample at the brewpub. The beer pours a clear pale golden color with a medium white head that evaporates steadily. Small patches of lacing. Aroma of mild hops and bready malt. Light body with flavors of herbal hops and sweet malt. There is a touch of citrus there too. The finish is lightly bitter with a hoppy aftertaste. Decent overall.
