dogbomb (929) - ENGLAND - FEB 14, 2014
Cask at White Cross Beer festival 2014. Dark orange gold with a thin white head. Nose is pungent - over-ripe oranges and floral notes. Crushed grasses and spice. Smooth drink inparting ripe oranges, a touch of mango and a little malt. Some light easy spice makes the finish special. Pleasant.

Leighton (10510) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2013
Gravity cask at the Wandsworth Common Halloween Beer Festival - Le Gothique, London. Pours clear, deep gold with a foamy white head. Nose of light herbs, hints of pine, light bread. Medium sweet flavor with bready malts, dry caramel and light, spicy pine. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Decent balance in the end, more bread, toasted sugars. Novel, nice.

Rune (7777) - Tromsø, NORWAY - APR 17, 2013
Half pint from the cask ale menu at Vernon Arms. Clear amber coloured body, tiny white head blanketing the glassware. Malt-fruity aroma, mid-sweet. Fruit hoppy taste with a caramel touch. Rounded bitter ending. Very smooth in the mouth. On par with the style, more or less (Liverpool, 08.04.2013).

foxo82 (673) - Tamworth (via Leicester), Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 8, 2013
Cask at The Wheatsheaf, Borough. Chestnut ale, headless. Bitter hops with a watery feel but decent length to the finish. A tad one dimensional but decent session ale.

sic1314 (3072) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - MAY 27, 2012
Lightly hopped golden ale, not a lot of aroma. Slightly sweet, with nice medium body feel. Easily quaffable but fairly undemanding.

imdownthepub (9991) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 19, 2012
Cask conditioned at The Britannia (an Ember Inn), Headington, Oxford. Cloudy gold to amber with cream head. Hmm, the old twang of acetic acid straight away, not the cleanest of lines in this pub by the looks, bready, yeasty, end of the cask perhaps? but I still paid good money for it. Poor.
