chinchill (4642) - South Carolina, USA - JAN 24, 2015
From a cask at the 2015 Atlanta Cask Ale Tasting. Feel: light body with light carbonation. Clear amber with a decent head. Fruity hops with light baked bread. Good balance. Perhaps a bit more hoppy than usual for style but this works to its advantage.

GTAEgeek (2095) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JAN 24, 2015
Sample at ACAT. Nice gold color, with a small, off-white. Bubbly head. Bright aroma of roses, pine, caramel, and a little rye. Sweet and malty, with a not insignificant bitterness. Light body, creamy, and clean. Very nice, sessionable beer.

Cybercat (5400) - Georgia, USA - JAN 24, 2015
Pours slightly hazy golden with a thin eggshell head. Malty aroma is a bit sweet and has a hint of hops. Flavor is boldly malty, a little sweet, with some hops for balance. Texture is fairly firm with good fizz and a malty and hoppy finish. Cluck for one.

The_Osprey (7440) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 27, 2014
Cask at the College Arms Bloomsbury. Post exam drinks, so short review. Amber orange, still, slight haze, small white head. Aroma is all cat urine and lemon Galaxy hop. Body is medium, smooth, low carbonation. Taste is hoppy straw, lemon, grapefruit, slightly bitter, light astringency. I was quite impressed with this one - even had a touch of Kernel about it. Other peoples ratings are much lower, so I wonder whether condition is a major factor here...
