Cask (Gallows Bird, Espoo, Real Ale Festival 2007).
All-round tasty bitter. Some hops, some maltiness. Had better - was expecting it to be more floral. Will re-rate. MiP (15667) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUN 4, 2005
Cask. Pale yellow colour, small white head. Pleasant enough, light-flavoured ale. bhensonb (15190) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 12, 2006

500 ml bottle poured a clear gold with a small lasting creamy white head. Aromas of straw, graininess, light spice and light citrus. Palate was light to medium bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of straw, light spice and a hint of citrus with a dry lingering bitter finish. imdownthepub (14547) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 26, 2003
UPDATED: JUN 27, 2006 Cask Conditioned. How disapointing that I am marking this, one of the better pale ales, after having it at a local Wetherspoons. O.k the pub has a cask marque but that means nothing now, the Landlord that earned the award for this Macpub has long gone (the power of money I suppose!!) Anyway, it was flat and lifeless as MacP beers tend to be. How is it that a chain like this can promise great beers then serve them so badly? If I were Hop Back I would stop Wetherspoons having any of their beer (is that a pig flying past the window?) que sera. Tmoney99 (14460) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 6, 2007
Re Rate - Horse & Jockey, Bodicote. This is as it should be, Light body but excellent bitterness and biscuity maltiness. Good quaffing beer but with strength.
Bottle. Poured clear straw with an average frothy white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Medium sweet hoppy aroma. Medium body. Medium sweet flavor with a small bitter finish of moderate duration. My expectations were met. Lubiere (13900) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 26, 2004
UPDATED: JUN 27, 2004 Hazy light gold with thick white head. Light malt aroma with some lemon. Probably drank this warmer than Tupalev, as the hops where very sharp and coming well thourgh the malt. The malt come sout much later, when the swetness is noticed. Light to medium. Nice. Drake (13728) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 26, 2009
500 mL bottle from Peace Street Market in Raleigh, NC. Pours a hazy lemon yellow color with a large frothy white head. Good head retention and lacing. A thin layer of sediment that looks like sand at the bottom of the glass. Fruity, floral citrus hop aroma. Some grain and faint stone fruit notes. Taste is caramel, stone fruits, grain. Smooth, a bit chalky, medium bodied. Decent beer.
