sm89walt (1837) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUN 17, 2009
Cask - JDW, Canterbury. A dark mahogany with a fine beige head that never completely disappeared, leaving a layer thick enough for a fair lacing. Quite vinuous on the nose, also with red berries and roasted malt. Coffee, caramel and plummy red berry flavours with a dry roasted malt and alcohol finish. Thin to medium mouthfeel with a lasting dry bitterness and a mild throat warming sensation.

Rune (9661) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 8, 2008
Half pint, hand pulled and well kept cask at Guildford Arms. Good looking with its deep golden brown body, and a thin head that laces moderately around the glass. Smell of sweet malts followed by a flavour of leafy hops and some hints of caramel malts. Rounded bitter endnotes. Edinburgh, 23.10.2008.

harrisoni (15792) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 10, 2008
Cask gravity at Ealing Beer Festival 2008. Deep russet brown. After being bottled for a day and a half, not in great condition. Some nice toffee and malt. Bit toasty and then some balancing hop on finish. A pretty good premium bitter, plenty of flavour. Bit of plastic maybe, but that could be from the bottle. Decent full fruity malt.

berkshirejohn (5390) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 16, 2008
Cask at the Monks Retreat (JDW), Reading. Chestnut with a dense cream head; syrupy malt aroma; lots of earthy malt flavours with some roasted nuts and some sour blackberry fruit; deeply bitter finish. Excellent.
