Sigmund (7299) - Tau, NORWAY - MAR 29, 2017
Cask half pint at McGintys, Aberdeen. 4.2% ABV. Golden colour, white head. Malty / toffee aroma. Smooth malty flavour, not as fruity as McGintys Ale. The hops are too moderate.

HogTownHarry (6611) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - MAR 28, 2017
September 22, 2015 - at The Falcon (Clapham) - cask handpull. With lagerloather and JerCraigs. Fairly clear gold, brassy, small white head. Diacetyl/butter off-putting aroma - taste has less nasty butter but is still sadly overly and cloyingly sweet; slick, still, somewhat harsh in the aftertaste ... tick.
