From cask at Food of the Walk. Pours clear and golden orange with fully dimished off-white head. Light breadish and towards roasted malt aroma. Light malty and sight roasted initial flavoured with a light bitterness coming through. Smooth and slight malty finish.

Ungstrup (29107) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 15, 2007
Cask at Tennant’s Bar, Glasgow. A slightly hazy amber beer with a dense cream colored head - the head seems to come from a sparkler. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of caramel. The flavor is sweet malty though with hints of butter, leading to a dry bitter finish. The mouthfeel is very smooth.

Cask@Market Porter. Amber colour, not much head. Aroma is grass, herbs, some bready malts as well as some mild leathery notes. Flavour s fruity and floral hops along with some grass and maltyness. Rather bitter in the finish.

harrisoni (13248) - 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.

TBone (12425) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 27, 2006
Cask@Tennent’s, Glasgow. Dark brown color, decent creamy off-white head. Sweet brown sugar and glue in the aroma. Toffee and some alcohol in the flavor. Mild Scottish ale.

Oakes (12234) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 1, 2010
@ Halfway House. Dull dark amber. The aroma is actually kind of faint. Toasty, with hints of bread. There is some malty nuance, but the beer overall might be too sweet and insufficiently nuanced.

Leighton (10512) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 4, 2011
Cask at the Crosse Key, JDW. Pours a clear, deep ruby with a bubbly, off-white head. Caramel, toffe and ripe fruits like grapes on the nose. Flavor is sweet and quite fruity, with some wood, sugar syrup, alcohol and herbal hops. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Light dryness in the finish with some pleasantly surprising roastiness, more almost ripe fruits, not too sweet. An interesting, slightly incongruous beer.
