FatPhil (14896) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 15, 2015
Cask (Sir Henry Royce, Peterborough) (6:3+:6+:4:13=3.2++)
Very passable sweet malty bitter. Full palate, smooth and refreshing. Pleasant herbal and fruity bitter finish. Good sessionable quaff, and this is served on top form.

Draught (Kingston Arms, Cambridge) Golden yellow, loose head. Sweet malty aroma. Tastes sweet with light fruits, citrus, floral, a little watery, but also with pleasant sharp hoppiness. Thatís the finish that you are left with.

Gravity dispense at The Oval cricket ground. Quite low carbonation, earthy hop dominates. Enjoyable and drinkable but a bit generic.

Pint from cask at Britannia Hotel 08.05.15. Clear golden. Dense, even and lingering off-white head and lacing. Aroma of grains, yeast and some hops. Similar and fruity taste, with lots of pale malt.

Cask at The Adam & Eve, Petty France, London. A straw coloured pour with a medium white head on top. Vague hoppy, malty aroma. Tastes slightly hoppy, malty, a little caramel with a slight bitterness. Not one to remember thatís for sure.

Cask - Was touted as a tart beer but this is anything but tart. Very dry taste, no malt sweetness or hops. Really a bland flavor on this beer.

reggiedunlop (3688) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 28, 2014
Pours a clear golden color with a creamy medium white head. Aroma has light sweet straw notes with earthy and grassy hops...a bit of a stringent scent. Flavor is grassy/earthy and fairly bitter...stringent doesnít come through in the flavor. Mouthfeel is light and the finish is dry and lightly hoppy.
