jjsint (2889) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2017
Handpull cask at the King Street Run, Cambridge. Very warm for cask so maybe not the most representative sample but here goes. Golden brown, flat. The teeniest bit of head congregates on the outside of the glass. Caramel malt and some nice floral hop in the scent. Ruined a bit by the sulphur notes. Sweet and malty, like Doom Bar with a bit more crystal and a bit more of a grassy hoppy note. Finish is a bit saccharin for my liking. Its ok, but very short of exciting.

Hndpumpet p John Baird (Muswell Hill, London), med Steven: klar gylden med flott skum. Tropiske frukter og engelsk malt i en lettdrikkelig og myk kombinasjon med mild bitterhet. Snert av lime i avslutningen.

Antzrhere (181) - Blackpool, Lancashire, ENGLAND - FEB 25, 2017
UPDATED: FEB 25, 2017 Cask, Layton Institute Blackpool. Pours amber with white head. Taste is biscuit malt and sweet, maybe abit too sweet. Some fruity yeast esters. Slightly cloying malt/caramel notes. Smooth and reasonably drinkable. Medium bitterness. Had a cold so hops didnt come through much, maybe light citrus. Decent body. Not bad, better than most bitter swill put out but nothing special

Vladivostok (482) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - APR 30, 2016
Golden in colour with a distinct herbal hop aroma. Most of the hops seem to have been used for aroma though as the copper hopping is obviously quite light, but a slight hint of citrus seeps through. Finish understandably short but quite a refreshing beer nonetheless.
