lusikka (7833) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 1, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 2, 2013 Cask @ OlutExpo 2013, Helsinki. Rated on 19.10.2013. Pours a cloudy golden colour with a small white head. Aroma of grains, apricot, grass and alcohol. Flavour of grainy malts, grass, grains, citrus, bread and some tartness. Light bodied, soft carbonation and a citrusy tart finish. Weird.

Cask @ OlutExpo 2013

Pours yellow with a small head. Aroma of citrusy fruity notes, malts and spices. Taste is smooth, malty and fruity with notes of spices and citrus. Finish is smooth and sticky with some spices. A bit unbalanced.

laiti (8537) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 19, 2013
Cask @ Olutexpo 2013<bt /> Aroma has caramel, sweet fruity notes and hints of biscuits. Flavour is harsh in a bitter way. It has some fruit candy, gooseberry bush notes, bitter herbs and hints of caramel. Odd.

jookos (7222) - FINLAND - OCT 18, 2013
[email protected] Yellow hazy. Estery nose. Some ripe banana, some yeast. Full bdied, slight oily. Doesn’t really feel that boozy, but does feel like getting it boozy was more important than flavour here. Like kilju with some finesse.

Beese (3355) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 15, 2013
Cask at St Albans Beer Festival 2013. Poured a clear light golden colour with a thin white head. Fruity hop aroma with pears, peach and maple syrup. Malty flavours at the fore with caramel and mango followed grassy hops. Palate is lingering tropical fruit, sponge cake and hop resin.

jjsint (3652) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 28, 2013
Cask @ St Albans Beer Festival, 2013. Bright deep golden yellow. Classic IPA aroma, with fruity bitter hop invading the nose. Sweeter than I expected but none the worse for it. Sneaky little bitter finish. Buttery creamy mouthfeel. Brilliant beer but it drinks like a session bitter!

mR_fr0g (14241) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 28, 2013
Cask at the St Albans beer festival 2013. Neutral aroma. Golden colour white head. Neutral aroma. Full body. Some caramel but the clean malt.

3.5
Scopey (16548) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 30, 2013
Cask at George, Croydon. It pours clear amber with a small white head. The nose is earth, straw, honey, perfumed, floral, apple and pear drops. The taste is soft fruit...melon, apricot, pear, honey, light toast, sweet bread, alcohol kick, light pine and some spice with a dry, bitter-sweet finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Smooth, well balanced and pretty drinkable at this sort of abv. Good work.
