KyotoLefty (8751) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAR 19, 2010
Cask at Mr. Thomas Chop House, Manchester. Light brown with orange. Hoppy, light aroma. Peppery, light on malt, but decent caramel afterwards. Good balance. Hoppy finish, but relatively mild. Nice, still not very rich, but good.

Charlieboy (60) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 29, 2009
’the other’ popular bitter around these parts but not as fine as theakstons. All round not a bad beer but just a poor imitation.

larsga (7077) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 23, 2009
Small white creamy head takes a long time to settle. Yellowish coppery hazy body. Faint floral wooden aroma. Dry-sweetish floral fruity resiny taste with wooden notes. Mild, smooth mouthfeel. Mid-to-thin body. Clean and fresh palate. Dryish floral watery wooden aftertaste with dusty resiny notes. Quite nice, but a bit thin. (0.25l cask, The Barony Bar, Edinburgh.)

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 19, 2009
From cask@Bow Bar, Edinburgh. A hazy, pale amber body with a thin layer of beige foam on top. Yeasty and cellary on the nose, with a discreet, acidulous-fruity hop aroma, along with a scent of sourish malts. Fairly dry, rustic and edgy malt body. Moderate, earthy and slight peppery hop bitterness. Softly carbonated. Dry, bitter ending.

sm89walt (1897) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 8, 2009
Cask - The Buttermarket, Canterbury. Mostly clear orange - a slight haze - with a small, bubbly white head. Fruity, floral aroma, much the same in terms of flavour - slightly acidic, light and hoppy with some dryness on the finish. Low carbonation, light to medium body, medium length finish. An acceptable session bitter.

Christian (12306) - Odense, DENMARK - OCT 2, 2009
Amber with a lasting off-white head. Fruit and toffee aroma. Sweet toffee flavour

oh6gdx (24346) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 10, 2009
Cask@The George. Ambery golden colour with mediumsized beige head. Aroma is earth, flowery hops and also some slight citrusfruity sweet notes. Flavour is earth, bready malts, caramel and it gets quite graint notes in the finish.

TBone (15534) - Pori, FINLAND - AUG 4, 2009
(Cask@The George). Clear amber color, small white head, some lace. Cat pee grassy-hayish aroma. Same with flavor: cat pee, hay, notes of lime. A bit boring.
