imdownthepub (10297) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 2, 2006
Cask at a Wetherspoons. Pale gold with short lived head. Really not sure about this, sweet grainy beer with a thin sweaty flavour. Like lemon fairy liqued. Sugary finish.

DJMonarch (9159) - Northwich, Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAR 1, 2006
Cask Handpump at the Brewery Tap, Liverpool 11/06/2005 Golden coloured hoppy and crisp on the palate. Banana fruit flavour. Some bitterness and dryness in a full malt finish.

Ungstrup (29335) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 14, 2006
[Cask as Cains Cask Lager at GBBF 2005] A hazy pale yellow beer with a white head. The aroma is soury grassy, while the flavor is a sweet and sour mixture with some malty notes. I don’t like it.

chriso (7365) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 9, 2005
Cask (handpump) GBBF, August 2005. Cains must have spent a fair amount of dosh on advertising hype for this beer. For me, at least, the reality was rather more mundane. Gold colour. Right sparkler. High carbonation. Soft and sweetish. That’s about it for me. Not very interesting.

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - SEP 29, 2005
Draft, at the Radison Hotel, Liverpool.
Pale golden pils with a nice foaming white head. The aroma is immediately different with farm yard characteristics amongst the regular lager malt and hops. The difference is what gives this beer its appeal.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 14, 2005
Cask lager? Has to be tried... Rather plain but clean malt aroma with some light grassy and floral hops. Clear golden body topped by low white head that lasts well and laces a bit. Bready, toasty malt flavour with some floral and grassy hops and light bitterness as well as a low fruitiness. Light body with somewhat low carbonation - again I expect the very tight sparkler tap has something to do with that. This seems more like an ale that was fermented and aged at very cold temperatures. It doesn’t seem to have the crispness of a lager. Still it is enjoyable enough if somewhat simple. Cask at GBBF 2005.

kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - AUG 26, 2005
Cask (GBBF): GOld with a white head. Clean lager malt flavour, but a bit bland. Some sugary notes in the aroma. Thin bodied. Drinkable, but only just.

DanielBrown (3819) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 9, 2005
Hand pumped at GBBF 05, with a big head. Fruity, rounded flavour: jelly tots and pretend tartness, with moments of sugar and salt. Definitely interesting and worth trying.

harrisoni (13737) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 8, 2005
Cask at GBBF 2005. Gold colour, creamy head from using a tight sparkler on the dispense, some fruit and sherbert but got some fairy liquid flavours with odd fruit. Bizarre and disappointing as the rest of the Cains range is pretty good
