BenH (3439) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 18, 2011
Cask at nobles in leith. Clear red with off white head. Aroma is juicy, citrus hops with caramel malt. Taste is hoppy, grapefruit, lemons followed by caramel toffee. Finishes well, crisp. Delicious. One of the best hopped Scottish beers going

One of the best Scottish reds - you can always rely on Orkney to produce nice beers.

In Cask all’O Connor; è il giusto formato in cui servirla, una buona bitter ma mi aspettavo meglio.

LordCorkscrew (1774) - Ronco Scrivia (GE), ITALY - MAR 6, 2011
Bella lì, prima ale dal cask, grazie all’avvedutezza di Maurizio dell’O Connor, primo locale a Genova ad offrire questa possibilità; si beve con grande facilità, la differenza con le ales in bottiglia provate è patente, è per questo servizio che una birra del genere è intesa; sul prodotto in sé, siamo nell’onestà, credo che si possa avere di meglio, ma tant’è tant’ò

UPDATED: OCT 13, 2011 Cask @ The State Bar & Chestnuts Hotel, Ayr. Oaty aroma. Medium brown colour. Sour fruity nutty flavour. Not as good as bottle version.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 12, 2010
Cask, gravity, at Wellington Arms, Bedford, in ’4th’ Wellington Beer Festival ’10. Amber. Faint malt aroma. Some sweetness in the taste, with a good deal of earthiness. Sharp bitter finish.

Oakes (17274) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 13, 2010
Amber-red. Thick head. There’s a big chewy caramel aroma. Quite tasty. Toasty palate with chewy caramel accents. Good complexity and balance.

Beershine (5224) - VANCOUVER, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 17, 2010
Cask @ Cumberland. Dark amber with lacing. Dry, earthy, aroma has some damp wood. Dry flavors are nice with mild roast. It’s not sweet, not toasty, not toasty, not bitter. It is a bit too safe? Boring.

oh6gdx (26482) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 25, 2010
[email protected] Reddish amber colour, small off-white head. Aroma is fruits, toffee, caramel wood and some mild notes of leather and spruce. Flavour is caramel malts, toffee, wood and mild dry sappy notes. Refreshing and quite nice.

planky84 (3214) - Lee, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 7, 2010
Cask @ GBBF ’10. Cloudy brown with an off-white head. Berries, nuts and caramel in the nose. Malts, raisins and fruit flavours. Nice.
