Cask-conditioned at the Robin Hood, Bristol 18/02/2012. Amber with a slight white head. As other have noted, hops were not evident here. Sulphury aroma with a touch of fruit. Flavour of sweetish malts, with a yeasty, stoned fruits edge and bitter finish. Ok.

On cask at Bar Fringe. Pours a blonde colour with a thin white head. Aroma of apple, pineapple, yeast and caramel. Yeast flavour is quite prominent with caramel and biscuity malt and a dry finish. Mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel.

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - SEP 29, 2011
Cask Conditioned Handpump Wig & Pen Northampton. A light golden beer with a white head and lace. Not a hop monster at all. Little by way of aroma; just a touch of fart. Yeasty in the mouth with a tiny lemony bite. Ordinary. The second beer called Hop Monster I’ve drank in four days. The one brewed by The Brew Company was far far better.

Bullit (4029) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 23, 2010
Cask @ Bon Accord. Unclear golden colour, white head. Aroma is slight malted, a bit of ash. Flavour is malted, ash, little hoppy. Fairly bitter and dry, but not really a hop monster. Enjoyable anyway.
