BlackHaddock (6235) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2016
Cask pint in the Skegness Wetherspoons pub on 14th Feb 2016. Amber/gold pour, white head. More malts than hops, more sweet than bitter, no citrus feel, fruity notes though. Decent, liked the fact there was no citrus flavours about!

Mr_Pink_152 (3629) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - FEB 9, 2016
Tried at a JDW in Nuneaton. Pale Amber colour with a thick creamy white head. Aroma weak fruit, spice and a bit of smokey malt. Taste is peaty. Not a great one.

imdownthepub (13070) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 9, 2016
Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Amber with white head.This commences with a stewed, strained malty character, in addition there is a twangy fruity note. Certainly not a great beer but not undrinkable.

The_Osprey (5968) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 3, 2016
Cask at The Railway, Putney. As ’Banks and Taylor’s Crooked Hooker’. Consumed to honour Dylan Hartley’s selection as England captain. No hooker is more crooked than he. Clear dark amber, still, small bubbly white head, light lacing. Aroma is bready, mixed spice, a touch of smokey phenolic stuff. Body is rounded, tingly carbonation. Taste is spicy, medicinal, burnt straw, phenolic character continues. Not overly drinkable - definitely wouldn’t be drinking pints of this. An OK burnt tasting bitter.

Cask at the Monks Retreat (JDW), Reading. Bright amber with a tight white head; rather thin with a peated grainy taste; and a lingering smoky finish. Quite pleasant.

DruncanVeasey (8012) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - FEB 11, 2014
Live@The Baron. Bright gold capped with white. Metallic brassy aroma with smears of jam, conifer and herb. Juicy lingering biscuit and caramel popcorn base without the hop interest to match; vague lime and rubber; almond maybe. Pleasant.
