StueyD (1234) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - NOV 2, 2014
A copper coloured beer with a weak white head. A mild yet distinct bready aroma, it might be psychological because of the name! Cereal and malt aromas with hints of caramel. Dry mouthfeel. The taste follows on from the aroma, loads of cereal flavours, especially oats and malt, plus a slightly sweeter biscuity caramel flavour. The finish is malty and smooth. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cask at the Magpie, mahogany with a thin head and a malty nose with faint red fruit notes. Body is lightly sweet and nutty, with a soft earthy and hedgerow hoppiness. A nice example of the style.

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2011
Cask Conditioned Handpump Coach & Horses Wellingborough. A brown beer with a whitish head. A very pleasant session beer with fruity and leafy hops. A touch of nuts and grain. Old fashioned but with extra hopping. A very easy quaffer.

DruncanVeasey (7315) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - NOV 28, 2010
Cask handpull, The Pub, Leicester. Dark bronze with a steady cream foam. Faint earthy and hazelnut malt aroma, with hints of dank woodland. Sweet and malt-driven with notes of digestive biscuit, elder, puffed wheat rolled in cocoa, mushrooms and cream. Good wholesome BB with streaks of dankness and house soapy hop.
