Alcohol, sour, sweet grain malts, some citrus fruits, orange, pale malts. Clear gold, tiny, creamy, white head. Light sweet. More sour, sweet and alcoholic flavours, citrus fruits, soft carbonation, medium bodied, loads of alcohol in the finish. Not really my thing this ESA, sour and sweet with lots of alcohol. Cask at CBC, Islington.

The_Osprey (8203) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 21, 2016
Cask HP at The Webb Ellis Twickenham as Oakham Attila, 7.5%. Pale golden orange, translucent, still, foamy beige head. Aroma is gummy sweets, daquiri, rum. Body is smooth with tingly carbonation. Taste is quenching melon, haribo, gummy red lips sweets, sweet with some spicy white rum alcohol notes. Slow drinking but pleasurable all the while. Can’t imagine this shifting too quickly at a spoons pub, but very happy to see it here. The pump clip suggests it’s going to smash your head into two pieces...and it delivers.

Cask at The Hop Inn, Newcastle-Under-Lyme. A clear pale amber colour with a thin white head. Aroma of candied fruits, lemon, elderflower, some pineapple, a little grapefruit and slight summer berries. Taste of candied fruits, summer berries, pineapple, lemon, some elderflower, subtle caramel and alcohol. Full bodied and an oily texture. A sweet, fruity bitterness in the finish. Sweet and really fruity, definitely a sipper.
