On tap at White Horse, Parsons Green. Smells and tastes of old socks. Hoppy aorma, but then fades badly.

Cask conditioned at The White Horse, Parsons Green, London. Hazed gold with no head. This was a reasonable beer, quite zesty with strong herby notes, perhaps a little over the top. It gets to be a little cough mixture like after a while, but there is a woody pine note late on.

On cask at Rattle N Hum during their Stone event. Pours a hazed ruby and brown orange with a medium sized beige head. This whole beer was an experience. Right after getting my pint, a few people at the RB table got their food, so my initial thoughts were that it smelled like delicious fried food. Even started writing that it my notes before I actually took my nose out of the glass and looked up. Smells like a whole lot of coriander. Musky, subtle. Next mistake was eating a little piece of the ghost pepper that was on the table since Larry brought a ton of peppers from his garden. So then there was about a ten minute cool down time before I could get accurate notes (though it didnt stop me from drinking about half the pint to quench the burning from the ghost pepper). Subtle coriander throughout, nice and gentle with a light crisp grapefruit bitterness. I personally liked it a lot since coriander is one of my favorite spices, but its definitely not for everyone.

Draft during the 40 tap Stone Event @ Rattle n Hum with Andrew, Big Tony, PJ, and Brendan. Pours a dark amber body with slight haze and with a soapy white head. Aroma is coriander. Mouthfeel is thin with notes of coriander dominating the flavor, some light hops as well.

On Cask at the Daily Pint. Pours with a hazy golden hued body and a off-white head that leaves excellent lace. Aroma is of coriander and hops with a light residual sweetness. Taste is spicy, herbal, and hoppy with a slightly astringent herb finish. Mouthfeel is nearly flat with a typical cask mouthfeel.

Cask (handpump) at the White Horse American Beer Festival, July 2009. I didnt get a huge amount of Coriander in the initial whiff but it develops very strongly on the palate. Perhaps a bit too strongly for my taste becoming too dominant for me. Not one of Stones top beers but pretty tasty nonetheless.

A Mes rate: cask handpull at the Sloany Pony.
Dark amber with a thin bubbly off white head. Bloody hell, I think there may be so coriander in here... My god its almost undrinkable for me. The regular Pale is fantastic, this really is far too much for it to handle in my opinion. I struggled through as much as I could and then returned swiftly to the bar and ordered a Bastard and suddenly life was much better again.

Cask, Stone Bistro. Pours a hazy pale amber, with creamy white head. Malt, light citrus hops, and lots of coriander. Very easy drinking, balance stone PA flavor, notes of grapefruit and bread, but also with a nice twist of spiced coriander. There was even bits of coriander in the bottom of my glass. Creamy mouthfeel (..cask). I enjoyed this.

On cask at Stone. Brown with a creamy white head. Great floral aroma. Citrus, flower, coriander, and caramel notes throughout. Very good.

Cask at the Linkery tonight, paired with swordfish tacos. Always nice to get another stone tick especially one for a beer like this. I liked it a lot. Pours deep copper with a perfect 1 finger tan head. Nose is sweet and light with hints of coriander. Taste is sweet light with hops and coriander and overall nice biter.
