FatPhil (16930) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 18, 2007
Cask (Gallows Bird, Espoo, Minna’s Party) Deep red, thin loose head. Mellow and sweet nutty aroma. Taste matches quite well - but the nuts head towards almonds and marzipan. Sweet and very drinkable.

Cask. Amber, quite hazyish colour with small, but longlasting off white head. Aroma is caramel, roast and flowery hops as well as a bit earthy. Flavour is wood, caramel and fruity hops. Light touch of licorace and roast once it gets a bit warmer (served at 10 C)

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 26, 2006
A Mes rate: Cask at The Head Of Steam, Euston. Hoppy and dry with biscuit notes. Nose is very faint. Earthy almost manure type notes to the flavour. Nothing special.

(Cask, The Wharf, Aalborg) - Amber colour. Roasty, caramel nose. The taste is pretty soft, with a unmistakeable molasses stickyness, and a slightly dry fruity finish.
