maeib (8611) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, - JUL 1, 2013
Cask conditioned handpump Moon On The Square Northampton 24/06/13. A golden beer with a white head and lacing. A sweetish beer. Light fruits on the nose. Malty and boozy in the mouth. Silly cold and suffering for it. Has a reasonable fruity flavour but it’s shielded.

mile (2887) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 13, 2014
Bottle. Golden, small and fully diminishing head. Light to moderate, malty and sweetish aroma, some caramel and light floral fruitiness. Body is light to medium, malty and caramel sweetish flavor, light fruitiness, faint hoppyness. Finish is average, malty and lightly sweetish - sweetish, some caramel and faint fruitiness with light butter, faint hoppyness. Caramel sweetish bitter with notes of butter. I do not get any "premium bitter" here. Could really use more bitterness.

allmyvinyl (2924) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 12, 2014
500ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Pours clear golden orange, no real head to speak of. Sweet malt and biscuit aromas, light butterriness, light floral note. Taste has some apples, quite sweet in a sugary way, no real hop presence. Light and a touch thin on the finish. OK.

Beese (1540) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 18, 2014
Cask at the Moon Under Water (JDW), Watford on 5 May 2013. Poured a dark golden colour with a scummy white head. Bready malt aroma with some soft fruit and straw. Fruity flavours with some brown sugar and biscuity malt. Finish was mildly hoppy.

Cask@stmatthewshall, walsall. Amber beer with small head, good lacing. Aroma of faint malts. Lots of different flavours. Malty, fruit, grain, biscuit and pepper. Probably too much and not balanced right. Ok beer in the end.

a_cross (593) - Poole, Dorset, ENGLAND - MAY 17, 2012
UPDATED: SEP 23, 2012 Clear amber, thin white head; aroma of sweet summer fruit; sweetish fruit leads the flavour too, with a hint of orange peel, some faint spice and a hop presence prevents the sweetness from being too dominant; a tinge of bitterness in the finish; this is a beer of delicate charm with subtle warmth throughout; really good
