harrisoni (17352) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 10, 2008
Cask handpull at County Hotel, JDW, Ashford. Gold, with slight haze, thin lasting off white head. Aroma of sherberty grapefruit hop. Citrusy flavours in the mouth, reminds me a bit of Oakham JHB. Right up my alley. I wonder if it has Mount Hood hops in? A little watery in mouth, but the hops are excellent. Good beer.

Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - JUL 17, 2008
Cask, with Traci and Fin at the Turf Tavern, Oxford. Warm copper, a bit of white head. Sulfur, nettle, a little lemon sweetness. Grapefruit flavor, fresh and fruity without being particularly bitter. Fresh, light palate, very refreshing. As much as I tend not to like the Burton sulfur nose, it’s not overbearing here.

imdownthepub (13395) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 25, 2007
Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Clouded gold with slight head. Fairly standard golden ale, dry and hoppy, light lager crossover with a touch more interest. Reasonable bitter finish, but it didnít persuade the lager drinkers on our table to change.

DonMagi (5593) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 21, 2008
Cask in the counting house. Aroma is caramel malt, floural and grassy faint wiffs of sulphur salts. Taste is the same very drinkable however perhaps lacking in bittering hop.

albertane (377) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - APR 27, 2008
Cask at the Sir John Borlase Warren, Nottingham. This is a fairly standard but enjoyable dry blond beer with a nicely long dry finish.

Gravity Cask Pour at Stratford Alehouse 02/03/15. Poured a Golden beer with thin bubbly white head. Hoppy notes, Cereal, Straw and a biscuit feel. Not bad at all.

jjsint (2377) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JUN 12, 2016
Handpull cask at the Burton Bridge Inn, Burton-on-Trent. Light gold, clear with the tiniest white head. Medium to heavy lacing. Light orange/grapefruit aroma. Sweet fruity taste which then reveals a tenacious bitterness on the back of the tongue. Barley and lemon juice in the aftertaste. Thin body but thatís to be expected considering the ABV and style. Good when drunk at source but I suspect it doesnít travel all that well.
