Finn (8155) - Tromsø, NORWAY - APR 24, 2017
Fra cask på Sir John Hawkshaw, London 3 Apr 17. Lys gylden. Lavt luftig skum. Litt uklar. Aroma av plommer. Smaken det samme. Blir litt syrlig etter hvert. Tørr bitter ettersmak. Plommepreget henger i.

The_Osprey (9159) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 22, 2017
Cask handpull at The Crosse Keys London as Roosters True Grit, 3.9%. Coincidentally I just finished reading the book. Golden yellow, translucent and still with a scummy beige head. Aroma is melon, pale sugary malt and elderflower. Body is smooth with soft carbonation. Taste has plenty of melon and sugary malt, gummy sweets, straw, elderflower and lemongrass. Clearly in top condition and drinking very well today. Good golden ale.
