Scopey (14022) - Croydon, Greater London, - OCT 7, 2012
Cask at IndyManBeerCon 2012. It pours clear orange-amber, with a medium white head. The nose is tangerine, sweet orange, caramel, hay, pine and tinned pineapple. The taste is tangerine, passion fruit, subtle white grape, earth, wood, grass and slight astringency, with a dry, citric finish. Medium body and soft carbonation. Tasty stuff.

Cask at the Reading Beer Festival 2012. Pours dark gold with a moderate, foamy head. Light berries in the nose, some lemon and orange. Light to medium sweet flavor, juicy with lightly ripened citrus, definitely some orange, lightly toasted grass, some straw. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Mild sticky finish, some toasty hay, citrus rind and peppery hops, light corn. Nice.

flying_pig (1531) - SCOTLAND - DEC 17, 2012
Cask (Pint in Cumberland, Edinburgh):
Fruity to start with, followed by some grassy hops and a touch of caramel. There is some orange in their and a basic cask fruity smell to the beer.
An orange amber colour with a thin, foamy white head taht stays throughout.
Fruity and orange like to begin along with some earthy malts and a light, sweet flavour following this. There is a again that standard cask fruity flavour to the taste.
Smooth with a medium, almost full body and a creamy feel to it. There is very little in the way of carbonation as expected and a definite fruity bitterness to the finish.

A good fruity smell to begin but one that fades faster than I would have liked before becoming pretty average. The taste was also pretty average throughout and standard fare for a cask ale from start to finish; Ill stick to Tempest beers on keg in future.

asheft (3058) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 13, 2012
[on cask in Edinburgh] Nice US hops with pine over grapefruit aroma that has some bready character. Clear bronze under a white flannel blanket. Fairly sweet lemony caramel flavour up front of faint DMS and a balancing bitterness. Grapefruit peel accent. Medium body, moderate to low carbonation, slightly bitter finish.

Cask-conditioned at the Three Tuns, Bristol 12/10/2012. Deep amber in colour with a decent off-white head. Aroma of orange fruit, caramel and grassy hops. Flavour started sweet, with more citrus fruit, some grainy, biscuity malts and a pleasantly bitter finish. Very enjoyable.
