Cask in the new crown. Alround rating: Aroma when fresh on it an excellent mix of citrusy pineapple goodness, sweet pale malts, small toffee appleness too as it has been on a day or two. Taste is similarly flavoured and excellently balanced for the %, massivly dangerously drinkable stuff.

jjsint (3496) - 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!

Otterdance (166) - Norwich, Norfolk, ENGLAND - FEB 13, 2014
Trafford Arms. Golden colour, cloudy with a thin white head. Fruits, vanilla and stuff. Had a sort of oily feel to it which enhanced the lovely light feel.

What in the name of high school football is this doing at 7.5%? No fucking way. Pint in The Magnet, Stockport. Aroma of pineapple, grapefruit, yeast, some correction fluid or glue. Flavour is sweet, grapefruit, elderflower, pineapple, hoppy, you do get a little strength but no way that high. I’m genuinely shocked and I don’t get shocked that often. WOW a blue car!

Gravity at Swansea Bay Beer Festival, late August 2014. Boozy, viscous, summer fruits with a sweet finish. I always enjoy this one.

Cask stillage at the Birmingham CAMRA festival 2014. Poured a crystal clear medium amber with a thin white head. The aroma is zesty citrus. The flavour is moderate bitter with a big fruity zesty citrus, light creamy hop bitter palate. Medium to light bodied with soft carbonation.
