imdownthepub (10122) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 4, 2010
Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Amber with slight white head. Tinny malty bitter with a yeasty finish. It just seems unfinished and is very dull. Disappointing.

maeib (8627) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - FEB 24, 2010
Cask conditioned handpump Moon On The Square Northampton. An amber coloured beer with a whitish head. The aroma is very thin. It’s slightly malty in the mouth with a hint of fruit. very ordinary and disappointing though ultimately.

Rune (7942) - Tromsø, NORWAY - APR 16, 2013
One-third pint glass, cask at Ship & Mitre. Tiny beige head to an almost mahogany coloured body. Good amount a lacing to the glass. Earthy, mid-sweet, malty nose. Taste of caramel malts mixed with spiced fruits. Bitter roast malts to the finish. Fine bodied. Decent brown bitter (Liverpool, 08.04.2013).

DruncanVeasey (7134) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - FEB 27, 2010
Bottle conditioned from Conwy Tesco. Clear russet with a dissipating cream layer. Fresh rust and demerara scent at first; margarine at the edges, becoming doggy with the bits in. And my god are there some terrifying floaties lurking at the bottom of this mutha. Flavour buttery in a good way-plenty of caramelised and cookie notes; distinct rust, blackberry, almond and brown sugar creeping in, drainpipe. Balanced and rounded. Just wish I hadn’t unleashed The Bits.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 28, 2009
A Mes rate. Bottle at Duff’s.
Dark amber with a very slight haze and a decent white head. Fruity yeast, slight chalk, mineral and faintly metallic. Grainy finish. Really boring.
