Leighton (15331) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 25, 2012
Cask at The Tyburn, JDW, London. Pours clear, rich gold with a creamy, white head; that’s where the positives end. Has a tangy, light malt nose. Flavor has definite tang. Some wood. Fuck. I order a pint - which I rarely do, preferring halves - and the beer is absolute shit. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Light sweet finish with tangy lemon and wood, along with some dull, offensive leaves. Fuck it. England is playing Italy soon. I’m necking this swill so at least I’ll be loose for kick-off. This stuff is pretty rancid. Almost sour. Not pleasant. [Neither was it pleasant when England went on to lose to Italy on PKs.]

RichardW (1813) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - JUL 14, 2012
Cask JDW, Carlisle. Amber bitter with decent citric undertones. Sharp and resonably clean tasting, with a fresh palate and plenty of biscuit in the finish. Some creaminess in the nose late on, with a bit of grain in the aftertaste.

DruncanVeasey (7882) - NUNEATON, TOP, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JUN 18, 2012
Live from Knickersby Spoons. Brilliant bronze with a fine slim top. Trace of pear aroma. Flimsy, with a throwaway bread and biscuit character; smear of pear and caramel. Inoffensive; a means of administering alcohol.

tombyars (1511) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - JUN 14, 2012
Tasted this in the Salt Cot, Saltcoats (JDW) in May 2012. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear amber in colour with a thick off white head. Sweet juicy berry fruit notes in the short aroma. Good lacing and resiny mouthfeel. Pale malts give a treacle sponge base with strong flavours of golden syrup present. Rich earthy flavours from the hop resins give an old fashioned note in the long and slightly bitter aftertaste. Powerful malt evident in the warming sweet finish with syrupy date fruit coming through. An excellent session bitter.

berkshirejohn (5396) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 1, 2012
Cask at the Old Manor (JDW), Bracknell. Amber with a thin white head; weak, fruity, malt aroma; sweet with some orchard fruit and a thin, oily, body; then a lingering, fresh, hoppy bitterness to finish. Not very inspiring.

deanso (7196) - the Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAY 22, 2012
Handpump at Wetherspoons Manchester. Decent white head. Slightly hazy blond/amber pour. Fairly decent bitter

fairwater (143) - Reading, Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 10, 2012
Cask @ Back of Beyond. Pours clear light copper. Sweet, slightly fruity aroma. Light bitterness, with some malt backbone. Nice example of a balanced traditional British ale.
