jinroh (2139) - ESTONIA - OCT 13, 2017
Manchester beer tasting at Tokyo Midtown. Pours clear golden, not much carbonation and hence, not much foam. Caramelly biscuit cracker nose, quite malty and only a hint of some earthy British hops. Taste is clean, caramel, light sweetness, bitterness comes out more at the end. Gets better when it warms. Nice elegant bitter, I guess just not really my style but can appreciate this.

TimE (6076) - Tokyo, JAPAN - OCT 13, 2017
Deep golden blonde color. Very light bitterness. Nice focus around the backbone but overall boring

The_Osprey (8734) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 7, 2017
August 2017 - Cask, handpull, at GBBF 2017, Kensington Olympia. As 'Howard Town Wren's Nest'. Golden orange, clear and still, foamy off-white head. Aroma is elderflower, apple. Body is smooth with soft carbonation. Taste is sugary, some apple, light malts with a watery finish. A bit wishy washy due to low bitterness. (5-4-5-4-13=3.1)

3.2
Grumbo (3847) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - AUG 11, 2017
Cask at the Great British Beer Festival 2017. Pours amber with a bubbly white head. Aroma of caramel, malt, hop, and fruit with floral notes. Moderate sweetness and medium bitterness. Moderate body, slight oily and watery texture, average to soft carbonation.

A decentish golden session ale. Hints of peach, grain. Bit of a watery texture. Palate quickly fades

Gravity at the Guisborough Beer Festival. Golden with a frothy white head. No aroma. Citrus taste with biscuity malt. OK.

3.5
agent_persik (770) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 21, 2014
Bottle, gift from my colleague from Glossop. Hazy golden color, small white head. Fruity aroma of pear, malt, toffee, some floral notes. Taste has malt, grass, citrus, hops - dry sweet with medium bitter hoppy finish and aftertaste. Light crispy body and average carbonation. Nice and refreshing fruity ale.
