wimpyjoe (4220) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 3, 2014
Cask @ Manchester & County, Manchester. Copper-amber with a thin head. Has lots of sweet malts, so much so it’s fairly sticky in the palate and a touch tangy. Not that exciting.

mR_fr0g (3443) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 1, 2014
Cask at The Moon Under Water Watford. Hazed copper coloured pour with a fleeting greyish loose head. Aroma is salty disk water, stale malts and sour apples. Infected me thinks. Flavour is acetone, touch of vinegar, tart granny smith apple, some stale toffee malts. Palate has moderately high tingling carbonation. Very disappointed.

BeerViking (2591) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 14, 2014
Cask at the Kings Tun JDW, deep brown with a fine off-white head and a malty, slightly woody nose. Body has a classic nutty, ever so faintly tart and ’aged’ feel to it. Lovely.

jmgreenuk (4697) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 5, 2013
Cask at the White Swan, Solihull. Poured a crystal clear medium amber with a frothy white head and lots of broken lace. The aroma is stale malt and weak hop. The flavour is medium bitter with a watery hop bitter palate. Medium to full bodied with flat carbonation. A nice smooth creamy session bitter.

Pizd (432) - Merseyside, ENGLAND - DEC 2, 2013
(Cask): Clear amber with an off white head. Aroma of sweet malt, tart fruit, caramel. Similar notes in tasting. Very sweet, overly so. Struggled to finish a pint due to it being so sickly sweet.

DandyLion (518) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 28, 2013
Cask @ Babelas, Leicester. Chestnut colour, largish off white head. Slight floral hop aroma. Taste is malty, roasty. Look it's fine OK, honestly, FINE. I'd drink it all night but only if there wasn't anything better/more intersting around. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
