danlo (3015) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - JUN 11, 2016
Cask at Woollen Mill, Hungry Horse pub, Darlington. Deep amber colour, white foam head leaving lacing and slight malty yeasty aroma. Taste is fruity, malt, sweetish, bready with tangy bitterness. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, dry tangy bitter finish. Quite OK.

Palme (4778) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUN 7, 2016
From cask @ The Diamond, Londonderry. This one has a darker golden colored body, a bit of a blur and in the top a relatively medium sized cask bubbly off-white head. It smells quite good. Kinda floral and grassy. Sweet diacetyl, white sugar. Nice in a cask way. Tastes decent also. It’s really creamy and smooth both in the mouth any on the bubbles. Mild bitter, some birch. A little sweet yeasty melony thing in the finish. Wood also, and I could swear I tasted alcohol in the aftertaste. Nice enough this. Easy to chug down for a thirsty guy. 07.06.2016

Very cloudy amber, some lace. Earthy nose. Medium body, little flavor, flat but smooth mouthfeel, low carbonation, avg length. Hint of bitterness, no acidity, hidden sweetness. Simple fruity flavor, tangerine, yeast. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Light tan color with ruby hints. Low carbonation. Aromas of caramel, some fruitiness, and a light whiff spicy hops. Fruity and hoppy flavor. Starts fruity with bubblegum, apricots, and caramel. Finishes dry and bitter. Overall, very balanced. Good bitter.

kapusil (1412) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 22, 2016
On cask. Deep orange body, thin white head. Aroma and taste of caramel, toast, biscuit, floral hops, orange zest and some butter. Nice one.

Holmen2 (3567) - NORWAY - DEC 1, 2015
Backlog. From cask at The Granite City, Aberdeen Airport, 04.08.12. You know you’ve landet in a civilized country when you can get a perfect pint of real ale at the airport :-) Dark golden in colour, off-white persistent head. Served slightly too cold. Aroma of dark caramel and toffee, with hints of hops and grains. Taste of caramel and malt, with superbly balanced bitterness. Long and delighful aftertaste of hops and malt that keeps evolving in the mounth. Perfect, just perfect.

NallePalle (626) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - NOV 28, 2015
From draught, Three Tuns, London. A bit disappointing to be an ESB, dull aroma.

3.1
teorn88 (7671) - Rimini, ITALY - OCT 14, 2015
Cask at JDW CW, London. It pours a clean golden color with a small tan head. Aroma is crispy and lightly sweet with pale malts bread an biscuit. Taste is medium sweet and lightly crispy wih notes of biscuit an caramel. Light bodied with good carbonation. Overall, ok

strap (912) - Sindelfingen, GERMANY - AUG 23, 2015
amber with a thick white head. a flavorful ale, good from the cask. could use a little more hops to liven it up

2.8
Hippoman (646) - Durham, ENGLAND - AUG 10, 2015
Cask from the Kinder Lodge, Hayfield, Derbyshire. Pours mid-amber. Sweet, buttery (diacetyl?) beer with some fruits, caramel and lots of sugary aroma and taste. I can see why it’s stood the test of time but for me it is drinkable but nothing more than mediocre.
