Cask @ Gallows Bird ⅩⅦ Real Ale FestivalCunningham (8527) - Halden, NORWAY - DEC 29, 2011
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
UPDATED: FEB 29, 2012 Bottle at a tutored tasting on GBBF 2011. Amber colour with an off white head. Fruity and a bit caramel in the aroma. Fruity and hoppy bitterness in the flavour, hints of blackcurrant. Hermod (8511) - 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.

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 I’ve had today. Fair play to them. Liked this.

Cask pint in The Paxton, West Norwood, London on 19th Nov 2016. Amber in colour with a decent sized off-white head that hung around. Malt led brew with an earthy, nutty and woody feel to both the nose and semi-bitter, semi-sweet taste. Old School beer and I liked it, good hop balance too.
