Pint at Three Tuns in Bishop’s Castle on 27/05/2016. Small white head and hazy golden body. Hoppy bitterness with sweet plum/fig/honey flavours. Quite distinct but decent beer!

stravale (3065) - Co. Westmeath, IRELAND - MAY 1, 2017
Cask @ Three Fishes, Shrewsbury [050417]
Golden, crystal clear, thin white head
Aroma - not getting anything initially, then soft vague pale fruits
Taste of sweet pale malts, syrupy, slightly spicy, apricot, i’m not liking the sweetness
Palate - Medium body, oily, too sweet for my palate. Finish quite dry, bit more bitterness amongst the syrup
Overall - Too oily sweet syrupy for me, not my cup of tea.

Butelka 500ml. Zloty kolor. Piana biala,obfita o duzych pecherzach,opada dosc szybko. Subtelne cytrusowe nuty w aromacie ,kwiatowe tony. W smaku slodko. Miodowo-kwiatowe tony z delikatna slodowa podbudowa. Bardzo przypomina mi perle miodowa. Odswiezajace i bardzo pijalne.

Towey1989 (2827) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 15, 2015
Cask at The Holy Inadequate, Etruria. A clear golden colour with a foray white head. Aroma of grain, lemon, some orange, grass and slight floral hops. Taste of grain, grass, some lemon, subtle caramel and slight prefumey, floral hops. Light bodied and a slightly oily texture. A bittersweet, citrusy hop bitterness in the finish. Very similar to a citrusy Pilsner, sweet and grainy but balanced with grassy and citrusy bitterness. Pretty decent.

A bit of an opportunist treat to be given this beer. In the end it hadn’t travelled as well as it could sadly. It appeared hazy gold with a coarse covering of white head. Aromas of brassy golden fruit and some woody Fuggles character. The flavour was similar but not earth shattering with a gentle bitterness. There was some oxidation but I prefer not to dwell on it.

Lightly hazy gold beer, good bubbly pale cream colour head. Palate is light and semi dry. Decent fine carbonation. Fairly sweet pale malts, whisper of cream. A little floral bitterness brings some balance. Whisper of marmalade, well buried. Not a lot going on here but it’s still manages to be very drinkable. Clever!

On cask at The Holy Inadequate, Etruria. Copper body with an off white head. Sharp hoppy aroma. Good fresh tasting malts with a reasonable amount of sweetness and fruitiness. Very nice.
