BeerViking (2293) - 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.

UPDATED: MAY 31, 2014 Cask in The Vine Market Deeping. Deep brown colour, with Creamy off-white head. Fruity aroma, Flavour is bitter and dry. A really good English bitter. More recently tried at the brewery and I wasn’t disappointed.

jmgreenuk (4011) - 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 (513) - 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

stravale (2038) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - JUL 7, 2013
Cask @ JDW Elgin [060713]
Copper amber, dense white head, clear, good lacing
Aroma - soft caramel malts, slight soft berry fruits, touch of bread, smooth caramel
Taste or caramel malt, touch of roasted malt, bit mineraly, soft spicy hops, some red berries, getting that Bateman’s yeast, this is quite decent, better than than bottle
Pakate - Medium body, little oily, smooth caramel. Finish quite dry, quite bitter finish, soft fruity caramel, dab of yeast
Overall - This is one of the best Bateman’s I’ve had...better than the bottled version

FatPhil (8997) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 26, 2012
Gravicask (PBBF2012, Fri)
Toffee aroma. Full palate, smooth and sweet. Fullish malty taste. Sugars dominate the grainier aspects, alas. Not as good as when it was stronger.
