Cask @ The Westgate, Halifax. Golden with a small head and a small sweet aroma. Medium to full-bodied with a grainy taste.

DandyLion (476) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 21, 2013
Cask @ The Clarendon, Leicester. Reddy amber colour. Very boring beer that tastes of cardboard. And bread. Meh. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Theydon_Bois (7005) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - NOV 9, 2013
Cask at Top Joes, Thurso - the most northerly beer I’ve had in the UK ! 20/10/13. Clear reddish amber with a moderate off white head. Nose is bready malts, hint of Burton snatch, light fruit. Taste comprises dull fruit notes, bready malt, bread doough, paper, light toffee. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, light bitterness in the finish. Mediocre.

stravale (1899) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - OCT 25, 2013
Cask @ Diggers, Edinburgh [251013]
Amber, clear, dense white head
Aroma - Slight fruity, no caley aroma here (!), but still dull
Taste - Caramel malts, soft fruits, the caley malts are back again, some soft bitter fruit,
Palate - Medium body, bit oily, bitter finish, getting a bit of a metallic linger
Overall - Another below average beer from Caledonian

jd543 (363) - SCOTLAND - OCT 6, 2013
Amber-red colour, off white head. Caramel malt, nuts. Bit too sweet, very light bitterness. OK, a bit average.

harrisoni (12675) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 5, 2013
Cask handpull at Orange Tree Canterbury. Clear pale brown lasting near white head. An ok slightly creamy bitter. Not much hop. Is this a Scottish Ale? Slightly farty yeast on aroma. Good condition though. Some hop sting on the finish. Turned out vaguely ok.

Osprey87 (1182) - London via, WALES - SEP 28, 2013
Cask at ’The Distillery’ Hammersmith. Orange brown with a scummy white head. Smells yeasty, and that’s all I can say about the smell. Taste has some caramel and liquorice, biscuity with a soft bitterness. Not much going on with this one really.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 8/20
berkshirejohn (4207) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 30, 2012
Cask at the Stag and Hounds, Bracknell. Reddish chestnut with a loose translucent head; sour, malty aroma; soft, with malty, toffee flavour and a thin and watery body; and a biscuity finish. Rather ordinary.

mr_h (2456) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - NOV 19, 2012
Cask by handpump at Crystal Palace - clear amber, thin off-white head, dry hop nose, creamy malt redness, low hop, pleasant aftertaste, dry finish

Rune (7361) - Tromsø, NORWAY - NOV 9, 2012
Pint, from cask, shared with Finn at The Cockpit. Tiny layer disappearing over a clear, amber coloured body. Smell of leafy hops and nuts. Mid-sweet malts in flavour together mild, dried fruits. Modest dry, bittersweet finish. Easy to quaff. Alright (London, Halloween 31.10.2012).
