Cask real ale tasted at Gallows Bird RAF 2010. Mild nose. Slightly hazy pale golden colour. No head. Thin taste with some fusel. Mild hoppiness. At the end hoppy bitterness. Some sour fruits in the taste. Warming alcohol.

Cask - Dartford WMC. Pours dark yellow with a small white head. Quite thick and oily in the glass. Orange peel, piney hops and lemon on the nose. Strong grapefruit flavours, backed by resiny, lemon hops a rich caramel note and biscuity malts, also with a hint of its alcohol content. Smooth palate texture, low carbonation gives quite a crisp, refreshing mouthfeel despite the ABV with a final lingering bitterness.

bman1986 (173) - Broadstairs, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 28, 2009
Cask at The Butchers Arms, Herne:An odd beer this one. A barley wine aroma to it, yet very pale and more like a strong golden ale in flavour. Rich, fruity and quite syrupy.
