imdownthepub (10460) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 20, 2012
Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Amber with very slight head. Perfumed and quite flowery beer with a distinct orange blossom note, orange pith. This was fairly flat on delivery which followed into the drinking of the beer. Nothing special.

Leighton (11315) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 20, 2010
Cask at the Pommelers Rest, JDW. Mostly clear, amber-gold pour with an off-white head. Foamy. Bread, some lightly toasted, burned edges, soft caramel aroma. Odd flavor, with heavy, heavy metals, such that I am about drinking this. Also some light plastic, faint earth, bread. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Metal metal metal to finish, with mild malts. What the hell? Metal subsides a bit as the beer warms but just barely. Something must be off here. At least, I hope so.

10th December 2010
On tap at the Goodmans Fields spoons. 5.0% version. Bright clear amber brown beer with a creamy off white head - it’s an attractive pint! Smooth semi dry palate. Fresh smooth malt, a little creamy. Sweetish beer, well intergrated smooth and semi dry orange. Dry malty finish. Just a very pleasant well joined up sweetish Crimbo ale that I could have happily drunk all afternoon as could everyone I was with.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 23, 2010
Cask at Bankers Draft (JDW), Bedford. A fraction too warm. Bright amber with a small white head. Sweet aroma of overcooked silage. Taste is interesting rather than attractive, sweet, malty and rounded, with some bitterness, and that composty, rotting hay flavour, redolent of rusty farmyards full of black plastic sheeting and old motor tyres, in a damp, flat, depressing English Midlands landscape. Probably Northants. Quite surprised at my scores.

Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - FEB 19, 2007
Gravity, Dover BF. Dark copper with an off-white layer of coarse bubbles. Warm fruity honey sweetness, cinnamon and marmalade. Lots for fruit in the flavor as well--seems like a blending of ester and hop contribution. Rather sweet, but finishes fairly dry, and combined with a touch of astringency, manages to stay refreshing.
