jjsint (2332) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - MAR 21, 2014
Cask @ The Castle, Bedford. Dark gold/copper with a smallish but lively head for a cask ale. Sulphurous aroma which fades to light herby and biscuit note with a hint of soft fruit. Taste is full and sweet with a bitter finish. I find the aftertaste somewhat acrid. An interesting ale, well-made but a bit unbalanced. Won’t be to everyone’s taste.

Cask (White Hart, Whutchurch) - Amber in colour. Apricot and biscuity malt in the aroma. Apricot and biscuity malt also feature in the taste along with some pleasantly hoppy notes.

Copper pour with a thin to non existant lace. Sour vinager aroma. Yeast, mango fruity flavour. Smooth texture. Little sweet honey finish.

Beese (2570) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 22, 2013
Cask at Moon Under Water (JDW) on 19 June. Poured a very unattractive, cloudy amber. No aroma to speak of very little flavour followed by some unpleasant bitter notes on the palate. I don’t doubt that this was not in good condition, but I get the impression that it wouldn’t have been might much better if it had been perfectly served.

berkshirejohn (5988) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 3, 2013
Cask at the Old Manor (JDW), Bracknell. An average, and rather, boring brown bitter. Copper with a foaming white head; basic, malty aroma; sweet malty taste with a few nuts thrown in; and a biscuity finish.

#10 - Moonlight offers a burst of fresh fruit and sweetness, with a comforting backnote of bitterness, just enough to satisfy your beer craving. Incredible easy to drink, at 5.4%, Moonlight is a perfect pint to get you warmed up for an evening of drinking.
