harrisoni (13800) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 15, 2006
Cask at GBBF 2006. Chestnut colour with lasting bubbly beige head. Not a huge aroma, some yeast, dry fruit malt in mouth. Fine. Needs more flavour, but malts are ok.

Leighton (11123) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 25, 2011
Cask at the Euston Tap, London. Pours hazy, light brown with a small, light tan head. Aroma holds semi-dark malts, modest toffee and some grassy hops. Flavor is lightly sweet, some more darkish malts, somewhat tangy bitterness, mild caramel. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Finish has some herbal hops, light sugar, light toast. Very just OK.

imdownthepub (10328) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 31, 2008
Cask conditioned at Harbury Beer Fest ’08. Brown with slight head. Malty, bready, yeasty beer with sweetish character. Quite thin but drinkable enough with fruity undertones. Reasonable.

UPDATED: JUL 27, 2010 Cask conditioned – handpump – GBBF. A mahogany coloured beer with a fruity malty aroma with some raisins in it. The taste is similar with those raisins tasting nice. Seemed a little tired which is a shame. Score 2.8

Fin (7484) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 5, 2009
Cask (Gravity) at Charlbury Beer festival 04-07-09 Pours amber/brown great clarity no head but possibly one of the best looking beers of the day when there were quite a few with a touch of haze. There is a touch of syrupy sweetness in this maybe honey as well, its malty, little perfumey, fruity, not bad. A6 A5 F6 P4 Ov12 3.3
