wimpyjoe (3725) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 3, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 11, 2013 Cask @ The White Swan in Hebden Bridge where the pump clip is different - specifically celebrating Elizabeth Wood’s 30 years as landlady at this pub. The ale is bright copper coloured with a thick smooth head. It has a mild malt running through its aroma and taste with some grain evident too.

maneliquor (3057) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 21, 2013
Cask at Crutched Friar. Not a bad all rounder but nothing to be amazed by. Quite clean, doughy and citrus driven. An odd molasses note in there at times which doesn’t work but not too bad overall

danlo (1125) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - MAY 11, 2013
Cask at Hole in the Wall, Darlington. Golden amber colour, creamy white head leaving lots of lacing and malty & slightly vinegary aroma. The taste is malt, fruity with some tartness and an earthy bitterness. Smooth mouth feel, medium bodied, medium carbonation, dry bitter finish. OK bitter.
