On cask at Bishops Arms in Malmö.

Pours a golden, copperishj yellow with a thick cap of soapy foam.

Smell is bready and biscuity with some floral hops coming through.

Taste is floral with a hint of rye, nice, mild bitterness, and a lovely, biscuity base.

Mouthfeel is medium, and not very carbonated, since it´s from cask.

Overall, a terrific spring beer, easy to drink and refreshing.

Appearance: Deep yellow, golden with a decent light head.

Nose: Zesty citrus notes with light spice.

Taste: Some mild spice with some sweet malt initially, giving way to a more zesty hoppyness in the finish.

Mouth: Good mouthfeel, fairly light.

I love this beer. The spice and sweetness makes it very moreish. Light and hoppy enough to be very refreshing. I would go back to this beer again and again.

I drank 3 pints of cask at the superb Red Lion pub in Chalton, Hampshire, England.

The colour is yellow with some hints of gold. The low white head is airy.

The smell is fruity. Fruit candy, some minerals and a note of green grapes.

The taste starts with passing hints of leather and caramel. The flavours are quite strong. Notes of gunpowder and some motor oil. There is almost no sweetness at all. Grape fruit peels in the aftertaste as well as tar and green bananas. The short finish got notes of gunpowder.

The carbonation is rather strong for a cask bitter, the medium sized bubbles tickles the tongue. The liquid is light.

An interesting and unusual bitter. I wonder if the gunpowder-tar-asphalt notes are supposed to be there?
