The_Osprey (7731) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 29, 2016
Cask HP at Swansea Bay Beer Festival 2016 at Brangwyn Hall. As Gower Power, 5.5%. Amber orange, still, translucent with a foamy off white head. Aroma is bready, melon, papery, musty. Body is smooth with tingly carbonation. Taste is papery melon, quite a hoppy floral tang, yeasty, apple with a drying finish. Decent session fodder.

imdownthepub (14223) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 14, 2016
Cask conditioned at The Charlotte, Leicester. Amber with off white head. This is rather a harsh bitter in character, sharp and a touch metallic, chemical. Drying and full on the palate. Its okay but a slight struggle.

FatPhil (15571) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 15, 2016
Draught (Gallows Bird, Espoo, Real Ale Festival 2016)
Mid orange, small loose head. Nice sweet aroma, both malty and hoppy. Well, you can tell its beer made with beer ingredients, although its in places a bit watery. But palate is soft and mellow. Finish is quite dry and bitter. Sweet malts and twiggy hops in OK balance most of the time. However, the bitterness does build up and become a bit aggressive over time. Hard to rate this, I can imagine one day giving this 3.0, but the next day giving it 3.6, it all depends on what I want my hop experience to be.

Finwe (436) - Grankulla, FINLAND - JAN 29, 2016
Cask at Gallows Bird, Espoo. Hazy golden with a small, white head. Aroma of citric and floral hops with some malty sweetness. Balanced flavour, but hoppy bitterness still dominates over malty sweetness. A dry, bitter finish.
