The_Osprey (7174) - 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.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 13, 2010
A Mes rate. Cask at the Bree Louise.
Slightly hazy amber colour with a good off white head and plenty of lace. A very pleasant bitter indeed. Slight straw, hay and pig farm. Excellent earthy malt with some hints of burnt sugar. Just the right amount of floral hoppage to balance it all out really well. Finish is so well balanced it almost feels a little dull but it lasts long enough to regain my interest. Good stuff.

500ml bottle. Clear dark amber colour with small to average, frothy, half-way kasting, minimally lacing, white head. Fruity hoppy aroma has notes of Williams Christ pear, preserved yellow apple, a grainy touch. Taste is minimally sweet malty, hints of fruit, cautious herbal hoppy overtones, in the finish dry, husky.

Hermod (6766) - Vantaa, FINLAND - MAR 26, 2013
50cl bottle, BBE 23.10.13. Poured copper color with a thin, creamy white head. Aroma is light spicy, yeasty with citrus, biscuit and bready notes. Flavor has the same spicyness, biscuit and caramel, light hoppyness. Light bodied, short light bitter finish. Refreshing, easy, decent bitter.

mjs (6740) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 20, 2010
(Cask at Pineapple, London) A fruity and hoppy bitter. Thats something you seldom get. I liked this beer. The fruitiness and maltiness were nicely balanced and bitterness wiped both flavours away quite nicely. Bitterness didnt last too long so the next sip brought all the other flavours back again.
