EFC1878 (315) - Manchester, Greater Manchester, - JAN 5, 2012
Cask at the Grand Union, Fallowfield. Reddish brown, little aroma, overwhelming caramel flavour. I’ll try to remember this one as it’s not remotely something I want to drink again.

stravale (2388) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - MAR 11, 2012
Cask @ JDW Elgin
Copper bronze...clear..creamy white head
Aroma - soft fruity malts...little on the nose
Taste - light bitter hops..bit of fruity malt when it hits the tongue...that’s it...watery...bland for the abv
Palate - thin watery body...soft carb. Finish...light berry fruit and a bit of biscuit...quite dull
Overall - Bland economy brewing.....a waste of money

Leighton (13189) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 19, 2012
Cask at The Granite City, Aberdeen. Clear copper pour with a fine, white foam head. Toasty, bready malt aroma. Nicely balanced flavor, lightly sweet, bready malts, some light fruits, soft leafy bitterness. Light bodied with fine, smooth carbonation. Sweet, faintly dry finish, some toffee, fruits, doughy toast, some berries. I really like it. A very easygoing bitter.

FatPhil (9978) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 25, 2012
Cask (Regal (JDW), Cambridge)
Deep orange. Very simple dark bitter. Too much diacetyl. Too sweet. No discernable hops. Watery. Meh. Old? Spooned?

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - SEP 10, 2010
Cask @ Lamb Inn, Frome. Red, nice hue with small head. Really boring aroma is shy with some fruit, some bread, and not much going on. Rich dry malts in flavors. Fruity. Flavors are more well-developed and well-articulated than the aromas with a hearty bread finish.
