On cask at Poste of Stone (JDW), Stone. Pours amber, good whiff of caramel. Very smooth and flavoursome. Excellent chug for the strength.

wimpyjoe (2933) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 31, 2013
Closer to a bitter but had an inkling of amber with the very mildest of orange citrus and a slight glow to that effect. The bitter malts dominate though.

SarkyNorthener (1414) - Walsall (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - JAN 30, 2013
Cask@moonunderwater, wolverhampton. Amber beer with small head. Taste is a lot of caramel and some hops, very sweet and dry. Very nice. Too much carbonation though.

Leighton (9833) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 13, 2013
Cask at Hamilton Hall, JDW, London. Pours clear gold with a small, white foam head. Sugary pale malt nose, little else. Interesting flavor, some smoke notes that I doubt are intentional, but that I actually enjoy. Medium sweetness, some mellow hay, bread. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Sweet finish, white sugar, lightly grainy bread, some more smokiness. Meh.

Cask by handpump at Camperdown Place, Glasgow - clear golden, non-existent white head, no lacing, mild fruity aroma, honey, fruity, sweet

tombyars (1316) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - OCT 1, 2011
First tasted this in Babbity Bowser, Glasgow in January 1993. Cask, hanpump dispense. Clear ruby red in colour with a thin off white head. Slight note of fruit malt in the short aroma. Thin mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malts give a juicy fruit flavour of redcurrants, fruit jellies confection. Strong hop resins gives a dry bitter aftertaste. Slight note of dry liquorice in the finish. An ok session bitter.

Oakes (11770) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 21, 2011
Bright medium amber. Thin head. Slightly earthy, slightly appley character. Accent on fruitiness, with a nice, earthy caramel balance. A nice working class bitter.

Beershine (5195) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - MAR 13, 2011
Cask @ Weatherspoons Penzance. Copper and clear. Brisk balanced aroma has nice hops. Fruity, soft palate. Slightly yeasty. Decent stuff but a bit too fruity like canned pears.

JohnRMurdoch (2953) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - FEB 28, 2011
Cask @ The Counting House. Mild malty aroma. Medium brown colour, good head. Caramel malt flavour. Sweet & smooth.

berkshirejohn (4198) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 25, 2011
Cask at the Claude du Vall (JDW), Camberley. Gold with a tight white head; grainy aroma; creamy texture, light grainy flavour; the finish is biscuity and lightly bitter, as if a single hop was wafted over the brew. Innocuous and boring.
