maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - NOV 30, 2009
Cask conditioned handpump Harp London. An amber coloured beer with sweet notes and caramel. Yeasty and peppery in a Harveys way like the Wandle, but again its not in Harveys class. A touch of berry fruitiness to give it a little interest.

downender (8517) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 25, 2009
Cask-conditioned at the Bag ONails, Bristol 25/11/09. Copper coloured with a decent white head. Aroma of biscuit malts, damsons and some hedgerow hops. Flavour of hazelnuts, dryish malts and a touch of brambly hop in the finish. Good.

Erzengel (8495) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - SEP 17, 2016
Cask. Nice fruity malts. Not too deep, hints of grain, sessionable, but fresh malty. Round but not too deep.

Svesse (8454) - Hsselby, SWEDEN - DEC 6, 2009
(Cask at Harp, Covent Garden, London, 26 Nov 2009) Brownish amber colour with frothy, off-white head. Malty, nutty nose with notes of dried apricots, dusty hops and a touch of sulphur. Malty, nutty taste with dried fruit, apricots, nuts, a touch of butter and dusty hops in the finish. Below medium body, rather sweet. A decent bitter.

laiti (8308) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 23, 2014
Cask @ Gallows Bird ⅩⅦ Real Ale Festival
Aroma is rather fruity with some hops and caramel tones. Flavour is a bit musty with minerals, toffee and grainy tones. Also hints of caramel. Too English but decent anyway

DruncanVeasey (8225) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - FEB 14, 2011
Cask handpull, SIBA Champions Fest 2011, The Canalhouse, Nottingham. Copper-bronze, lacing white slick. Aroma of dates, figs, oranges, a snort of exotic spice: cinnamon? Flavour: not fully dried stone fruits (plums,dates, apricots), milk choc afters. Fragrant, slightly chewy...and a little bizarre. Nothing like anything else Ive had today. Fair play to them. Liked this.

lusikka (7813) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 29, 2013
Draught @ Naamat, Tampere.
Pours a cloudy dark brown and creamy head. Aroma of grass, gooseberries and some sour notes. Flavour of harsh grainy malts, gooseberries, grassy hops and sour berries. Light bodied, slick mouthfeel and a harsh, bitter, sour finish. The sour notes here are rather off-putting.

The_Osprey (7812) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 16, 2014
Ive had this before, not sure how it fell off my rating radar. Anyway, cask this time. Dark orange or light brown, hazy, still, small white head, light lacing. Nothing to report in the aroma. Body is medium, slightly foamy, touch of carbonation. Taste has burnt toffee, slight ash, malt-forward. Average sweet malty bitter.
