shoulderbroken (3755) - Tokyo, JAPAN - DEC 24, 2011
Cask at Southampton Arms. Amber brown colour with small white head. Aroma is bit hoppy, bit of bready malt and a bit of stale sock. Taste a bit uninspiring, bit of biscuity malt with a touch of citrus. Slight bitter finish. Ok but nothing special.

Cask@Southampton Arms, London. Amber colour, small white head. Aroma is fruits, caramel, wood, some sweet plummy notes as well. Flavour is caramel, fruits, wood, some mild spices as well as mild resin. Good refreshing bitter.

harrisoni (17278) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 17, 2011
Cask air pressure at Euston Tap. Deepish amber with thin lasting cream head. Highly hopped beer. Yes quite bitter. Perhaps just a bit too over the top. Bit of fish oil. Not my favourite to be honest. Odd in mouth as these Euston Tap cask beers can be i.e. Just a bit flat. Happy though

larsga (7293) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 14, 2011
Medium creamy offwhite head. Slightly hazy amber body. Floral caramelly straw aroma with faint fruity notes. Dry-sweet strawy fresh wood taste with earthy fruity notes. Light body. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dry-sweetish resiny strawy aftertaste with earthy honey notes. Lingers a long time. Outstandingly drinkable, nicely moreish. (0.25l cask, The Bree Louise, London.)

chriso (7513) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 24, 2011
On cask at the Euston Tap on 14 April 2011. Amber colour. Good firm, spicy and earthy hop presence. Quite spritzy on the palate. A little sulphur on the nose. A decent, solid session bitter, if not as interesting as some of the other Camden beers (6/3/7/4/14 = 3.4).
RE-RATE. Cask (handpump) at Southampton Arms on 19 April 2011. Golden amber colour. Loose white head. More dry malt than hop. Quite pronounced tangy bitterness on the finish. Distinct fruity (apple) accents. A decent standard bitter. Maybe a bit green on this occasion. (6/3/6/3/12 = 3.0)
Average score (3.2) taken.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - APR 2, 2011
Cask Conditioned handpump Bree Louise London. A golden beer with a white head. A fairly standard beer with some cereal and biscuit notes in the mouth. Very plain aroma. Sessionable but a bit dull.

Sigmund (6719) - Tau, NORWAY - MAR 21, 2011
Cask at the Bree Louise, London. Deep golden colour, low white head. Minimal aroma, a little malts and toffee. Soft mouthfeel. Tolerably well-hopped flavour.

Leighton (18526) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 18, 2011
Cask at Euston Tap. Clear, copper-gold pour with a creamy head. Has some leafy hops and dry malts on the nose. Lightly sweet with some bland, cracker malts and herbal bitterness. Light in body with average carbonation. A bit of astringent, herbal and citric hops on the finish with light, toasty bread. Decent.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 27, 2011
A Mes rate. Cask at the Bull & Gate, Kentish Town.
Slightly hazy light brown colour with a thin but well retained off white head. Obvious diacetyl on the nose that spoils what seems like a reasonable bitter underneath. Similar in the mouth but the diacetyl has subsided somewhat. Pleasant but ever so delicate grassy notes and some reasonable earthy malt. It’s ok, just extremely dull. The first poor effort I’ve tried from Camden.

Finn (6291) - Tromsø, NORWAY - NOV 2, 2010
Cask på Horseshoe, Hampstead 7 Okt 10. Mørkebrun. Litt uklar. Lavt kremaktig skum som varer en stund. God fruktig aroma. Smaken svakt fruktig med en forsiktig bitter ettersmak. Aprikos & svisker. God.
