Cask handpump at The White Horse, Harborne, Birmingham. Copper with a short head. Floral (roses?) malty scent. Nice grapefruit aromas, very fruity with a good mouthfeel. Thought it could have been a bit more bitter though. Nice drinkable beer, but simple.

The DM & Hotstuff’s European Honeymoon trip beer number 8. This draft brew from the Market Porter in London poured a small head of finely sized mostly lasting white colored bubbles that left behind an excellent lacing. The body contained no carbonation, was transparent and brown in color. Its aroma contained notes of mild malts and hops. Its mouth feel was smooth malty mildly hopped with a smooth palate and a hoppy aftertaste. Its flavor contained malty hoppy notes and was tasty. A very average brew.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 19, 2004
Cask@The Market Porter, Southwark, London. Not too bad, some subtle aromatic hops in the aroma and flavour, some orangey caramel flavours, medium bitter finish, a bit salty.

Sorry if I gave the impression that I couldn't support Spiesy's comments at the time, but I certainly do now (apart from the smokiness, which I didn't get). Pale amber colour. Not much in the aroma, but some fruit comes through in the flavour. Hops and a touch of malt too. A pleasant, nicely balanced session bitter, but nothing to get too excited about. Cask (gravity), Battersea Beer Festival.

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - FEB 12, 2004
Cask Conditioned, at the Battersea Beer Festival, 2004.
Amber with a bright white frothy head. Aroma doesn’t give much away. The flavour is ever so slightly smoky. I tried to garner support from chris_o and SilkTork for this comment but none was forth coming. Silk was already cut to pieces having been there from the outset and Chris was certainly enjoying himself. In any case I stand by my observation, the beer definitely had under currents of smokiness that left a trail on the sides of the palate.
