bartlebier (3815) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - APR 18, 2017
Cask halfpint @Ragged Trousers Tunbridge Wells. - Odd thin affair of soggy floor biscuit malts underneath oddly floral/perfume hops, hovering in earthy oilywatery air. Decent for the abv though, with something to wonder about every sip. After a bitter and a mild, this ales rustic charms might have been lost on me, but there is a lingering dusty elderflower theme...

Cask at the Battle of Trafalgar, Brighton on 1st March 2017. Pale pale gold with off-white foam and scant lacing. Floral hops and biscuit malt in aroma. Floral and citrus hoppiness in-mouth. Tart citrus, sweet malts and elderflower in the finish. Zingy mouthfeel and a light body.

thejackpacker (331) - East Sussex, ENGLAND - FEB 9, 2017
UPDATED: APR 11, 2017 Cask at Plough and Harrow, littlington. A real problem at the pub that day (mid December), all Long Man beers tasted very skunky, like dirty pub floor. I like this brewery but this time the long blonde was barely drinkable. Retried cask at weatherspoojs eaatbourne. Similar palate which is very unpleasant which hit after first initial taste which was fantaysic like dark star hopehead. Shame it lasted for 2 seconds. Still not a fan albeit better.

Vladivostok (480) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - AUG 7, 2016
Rather generic golden ale with a thakfully restrained citrus character and fairly robust body. Nice enough but the brewers have run out of interesting things to do with this genre.

TheKernOwl (214) - West Sussex, ENGLAND - JUN 18, 2016
OK- restrained straw nose and tight, mildly lemon body. Bit like cairngorms "trade winds" but with less heather, less fines.

Light in colour, floral aroma, citrus and good hop character with a nice bitter finish. Good beer.

@ a pub in Pett. Hazy blond colour, white foam. Bitter and sweet with dry hoppy finish. Watery but drinkable.

BeerViking (4563) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 15, 2015
Cask at the Magpie, deep gold with a lasting fine head, golden malt and lightly spicy and floral hops on the nose, crisp and lightly dry-bitter. Decent blonde ale.

Grumbo (2433) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - JUN 21, 2015
Cask handpull at The Cherry Tree, Woodbridge. Pours a light golden colour with a creamy white head, leaving good lacing. Aroma is light hop, citrus, and grass. Light sweetness, medium bitterness. Light body, creamy texture, soft carbonation. Bitterness to finish.
