UPDATED: APR 24, 2010 Cask (Gallows Bird, Espoo, Real Ale festival 2010)
6 odd aroma, sweet malts, sticky hops
4 deep red, tiny head
7+ big caramel base, huge fruity hops. Some freezer ice retronasals.
4 finish so fruity and sticky, some ginger, loads of citrus. Long finish bitingly throbbingly bitter.
14+ BANG - what a smack in the chops this is! maybe too sweet. Couldnt session it
Rerate of (7:4:7:4:14=3.6) Cask (Kuikka, Helsinki)
Rich reddy brown, small persistent foamy head. Beautiful hoppy aroma despite being served cold. Both fruity aromatic hops and more traditional bitter ones. Full-bodied, smooth palate. Gingery and fruity hoppy retronasals. Big bitter finish. Drying and resiny, lasting for a long time. Quite well balanced. Perhaps the hops are a touch too dominant and aggressive - over-egged, one might say - so misses out on the wow factor.

The downside, not a lot. Im guessing amarillo, Centenial and mount hood, on a nice broad caramelly body. Sounds almost sexual. Still, very good stuff. if a tad sweet for more than a couple. Draught @ the coastguard, 29/12/07
