Cask@St Albans BF. Decidedly soapy mouthfeel. Some nuttyness and generally pretty full flavoured, but the soap gets in the way.

ThomasE (5176) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 18, 2004
red coloured ale with small head. Aroma is sweet and malty. Flavor starts off sweet and ends with a nice dry finish.

chriso (7396) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 12, 2004
Cloudy copper colour. A malty beer in the autumnal style, but I found it a bit dull. The condition may have been to blame, but it certainly didn’t come over as one of Crouch Vale’s better efforts. Cask (gravity dispense) at St Albans Beer Festival 2004.

JonMoore (1875) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 10, 2004
Cask at the Swan in the Rushes, Loughborough. Amber colour with white frothy head, good lacing. A roasty, bitter flavour. Light bodied. Not a bad session beer.

Joeh (2049) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - OCT 2, 2004
Cask Conditioned @ the Saturday session, St Albans Beer Festival 2004. Beer #6. Possibly in fairly poor condition, slighly soapy and sour. Not great!

DeepBlack (386) - Derby, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - OCT 1, 2004
UPDATED: OCT 6, 2004 From the Alex in Derby. Nice beer, not much of a Red colour to it really, more of an Auburn/Brown. Strong taste though lacking for something, maybe dry hopping would have helped brin gout the character more?

Sigmund (5178) - Tau, NORWAY - SEP 29, 2004
Cask at the Ipswich Beer Festival 2004, gravity dispense. Crouch Vale’s attempt at a red Irish style ale - not a bad try IMO. Reddish colour, malty / toffee / caramel aroma, hints of oak. Malty caramel flavour with a surprisingly hoppy bitterness. Very good. A great combo with burger & chips.

SilkTork (5225) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 6, 2004
Maidstone Fest. Roasty Irish Red. like a cross between a stout and a bitter. But more inclined to the bitter. Nice.

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - MAY 19, 2004
Cask Conditioned, at the Wenlock Arms, London.
Clear ripened amber colour with a full frothy head, flat otherwise. Fruity hoppy aroma. Soft,sweet malt flavours with a smooth hope finish. In wonderful condition.
