leaparsons (7805) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 18, 2014
Bottle. Amber with a thin foam. Aromas are toffee and caramel with raisins. Light stewed apple with woody notes and fudge. Flavours are sweet caramel and toffee with dry tea and light woodiness. Some sharpish lemon. A bit of cardboard. It’s OK.

allmyvinyl (2226) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 16, 2014
500ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Lightly hazy amber pour, good lasting head. Some butterscotch on the nose, stewed apples and red fruit, toffee. Taste has more apple-sweetness. Good texture and body for the strength. OK.

TBone (11947) - Pori, FINLAND - MAY 30, 2011
Cask@Pullman, Helsinki
Clear amber color, small off-white head. Diacetylic, sticky nose. Light-body. Less diacetyl in the flavor, some in the aftertaste. Toffee, wort, hoppy notes. Light hoppy notes in the finish. This one was pretty lame.

Oakes (11874) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 28, 2010
This one pours a remarkably murky, very light brown. The aroma is quite toasty and a little bit biscuity. Light body, a bit acidic, and has a hollow chocolate malt character. This beer is a real miss.

Beershine (5196) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - SEP 10, 2010
@ The Lamb, Frome. Poured with a ton of sediment but the red-orange hue is nice. Too bad about the murkiness, it’s quite off-putting. Aroma is clear but shy. Bready malts and some fruit juice. Flavors start similarly with fruitness before taking a welcome turn towards a bread crust finish. Quite nice overall.

FatPhil (8636) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 24, 2009
Cask (Kitty’s, Helsinki)
Rich nutty grainy and even dry barky hoppy aroma. Big for a 3.6% beer. Some spices and even ginger, Soft carbonation. Deep amber, small loose head. Unsurprisingly watery palate. Some fruity restronasal esters. Taste is a bit dishwatery. Finiah pleasantly bitter and a little barky and herby. Simple, but OK.

Cask Real Ale. 0.25L glass. Mild soft nose. Coppery colour. Malty and roasty taste. Some toffee hints. Mild hoppiness. Fresh nice bitter.
