chriso (7347) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2007
Cask (gravity dispense) at Reading Beer Festival, April 2006 as Windrush Ale. Copper colour. Lively condition. Rather too much dull malt in evidence. Despite the sprightly appearance it actually tasted a bit tired. Definitely something a little dubious about the condition so will merit a re-rate if possible.

harrisoni (13564) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 2, 2006
Cask gravity at Reading BF 06. Deep copper with lasting off white head. Good herby hop aroma, some chewy malt. I liked it but its still a bitter though

Fin (7343) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 24, 2006
Cask Conditioned at Banbury Beer Festival Fri 21-04-06. Amber coloured, a very good effort for a first brew really enjoyed this beer, good fruity taste with definate citric notes and hops. Most enjoyable.

maeib (8627) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - MAR 6, 2006
Cask conditioned - gravity dispense - Royal Oak Crick. A dark copper coloured beer. The aroma is fruity with a little pear noted. The taste is also fruity. A bitter beer with clean malt tastes but not a great deal of hop noticeable.

UPDATED: FEB 17, 2006 Cask Conditioned at The Kings Head, Fritwell, Oxon.
Orange amber beer with steady white head. Full flavoured best bitter with a crisp fruity citric character. Plenty of grapefruit notes with a lemon citricity, good hoppy nose. This is a well rounded beer, thoroughly enjoyable.
