imdownthepub (11496) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 20, 2015
Cask conditioned at The Punch Bowl, Warwick. Copper with white head. This proved to be a heavily caramelised, toffee’d beer, sweet, sticky, heavy. Bordering on poor.

On cask at Victoria Lounge Bar, Hanley. Pours copper with off white head. Looks the part, tasted like a pint of water. Stick to the Buxton Spring...

StueyD (1467) - 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

BeerViking (3265) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 21, 2014
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.
