jjsint (2322) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - DEC 26, 2015
Cask at the Bankers Draft (JDW), Bedford. Copper colour with a light drizzle of off-whitish head. The carbonation is strong with this one. Floral and toffee aroma, mild but pleasant enough. Sweet malty taste with a hit of caramel, but there’s some artificial-tasting astringency at the end of the sip. Toffee apple in the aftertaste. Nice full palate for a beer of this strength. Ok.

Cimbasso (738) - - NOV 19, 2015
Sampled on draught at the JD Wetherspoon's Mossy Well pub in Muswell Hill. A deep, clear copper colour with a quickly-fading white head. Malty aroma, and a very fruity taste of apples and plums. Hints of butterscotch and orange marmalade. Some hoppy bitterness, but very mild in flavour. Medium mouthfeel. A fruity and well-flavoured bitter.

Jonb5 (507) - Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 9, 2015
Pint at the Spoons pub in Whitehall. A: Bronze, thin small head, hazy. S: Only a very faint aroma, but it was malty. T: Slightly watery, toffee, malt, cranberry, increased bitterness towards the end. M: Smooth, watery texture. O: Middle of the road, a bit too strong to session, not too much depth.

MissPxx (959) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 8, 2015
A bit disappointing if I'm honest. Standard aroma but rather bitter tasting and quite weird. Won't be having another one ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hippoman (646) - Durham, ENGLAND - JUN 16, 2015
Cask at Water House (JDW), Durham, £1.99/pint. Pours very dark amber/ruby with creamy off white head. Nose is weak but there’s a slightly damp, fruity aroma. Taste opens sharply bitter,giving way to slight sweetness with burnt caramel and biscuit notes. So so.
