UPDATED: SEP 15, 2013 Cask@The Criterion, Leicester. Bronze beer with a strong head. The aroma is fruity and bitter, and the flavour is mildly toffee and hopped. Overall a nice average bitter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cask at wetherspoons. Pours a slightly hazy amber with a thin loose head. Aroma is lemon and a little pineapple. Light body, watery. It's green apple, a touch of pineapple, a bit of pear, some citrus at the end. Nicely bitter. Despite it being a bit wet its still pretty tasty. OK. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hand-pulled pint into a UK pint sleeve in my local Wetherspoons on 8 Aug 2013. Good looking beer: full on amber with a red hue, on top a deep covering of white foam. The nose was both fruity and floral hops, with a malty undertone. The taste also a mixed bag of flavours, with the malts being stronger on the tongue than in the aroma. The malts give a sweetness that the hops try to prevent and this produces an interesting blend of flavours of dark berries and biscuit notes.

Cask at the moon under water watford. Light copper colour with a slight haze. Long lasting white head and good lace. aroma is deer earthy hop. Some peppery favours come through. Sweet with mid carbonation . Tart bitterness on the finish. Middle of the road on this one.

maeib (8598) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - AUG 23, 2010
Cask conditioned handpump Moon On The Square Northampton. A copper coloured beer with a loose but large white head. An odd beer with a fruity malty aroma with grapefruit and crisp apple notes. A little strange but drinkable enough.

Cask@Market Porter. Copper coloured with small off-white head. Aroma is fruity and floral hops along with some herbs and mild grass. Flavour is fruity and floral hops with quite much caramel malts as well as some bready notes. Also some mild stinging berryish notes. A quite pleasant one.

Cask at the Babington Arms, Derby. Gold with a creamy white head; lime and citrus aroma; more citrus flavour with a bitter grapefruit bite and dry finish with orange and lime. Very pleasant on a summers evening.
