Cask. The Old White Swan, York. Medium tan head. Black body. Hoppy, fruit, citrus. Very bitter, Dry finish. worldbeertaste (1818) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - JAN 15, 2012
Greapfruit and pine smell with a light roast malt. Blackish brown with a red tint with a bubbly lasting tan head. Light and very thin, almost watery. The thinness makes it very easy to drink. Taste of grapefruit, pine, roast malt and caramel. Quite hoppy on the middle with a citrus finish. Nice and easy to drink. A little too thin.

Cask conditioned at The Easington Hotel, Banbury (Ember Inns). Almost black with cream head. Initial darly roasted malts make way for a slightly sweet, oily hop flavour, leafy, grassy, nicely bittering. Lots of depth and character, a very pleasing beer.

Cask at The White Hart, Nicholson’s, London. Pours dark brown with a bubbly, foamy and off-white head. Looks good. Holds a lovely aroma of pine, grapefruit and moderate roasted malts. The flavor isn’t quite as nice as the aroma but it’s still decent. Some semi-hard roasted malts, light baking cocoa, pine and grapefruit are all in there. Medium bodied with fine, smooth carbonation. Moderate roast finish with short bitterness, some light sweetness, definite saltiness, light resins and some dark fruits creeping in. A respectable black IPA.
