jackl (4567) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - OCT 31, 2012
Cask @ JDW, Victoria Station. The pour’s deep amber with a tiny head. THe nose is mild caramel sweetness, some nuts. Notes of honeyed grain, orchard fruits. The taste is mildly bitter toasted grass. Smooth toffee body. The finish is full of orchard fruits and mildly earthy, gritty flavors (ash, pepper). Light body, pleasantly soft texture. Overall, a fairly decent beer.

downender (6245) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 5, 2013
Cask-conditioned at the Commercial Rooms, Bristol, November 2012. Deep amber with a slight, off-white head. Sweet, malty beer, with some fruit and an earthy edge, before a moderately bitter finish. Good.

Finn (4157) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JAN 3, 2013
Willow Walk, Victoria 2 Nov 11. JDW festivaløl. Mørk gyldenbrun. Veldig lavt skum. Tilstedeværende fruktaroma. Tynn på smak. Litt syrlig og tørr ettersmak.

Rune (7999) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 1, 2012
1/3 pint, hand pulled cask at Willow Walk. Clear amber to a naked surface. Modest aroma of malts and fruits. The taste is also malt-fruity leaving a jam-like impression. Smooth bitter ending. Decent bitter, on par with the style (JDWs real-ale festival, London, 02.11.2012).

kwik-lime (1294) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 17, 2012
Precious little character here, a bit of dry hop in the finish and somewhat of a sour note. Easy-drinking, but incredibly boring beer.

Leighton (10781) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 9, 2012
Cask at Hamilton Hall, JDW, London. Pours clear gold with a fine, white cream head. Leaves and faint berry fruits on the nose. Light sweet flavour, fairly bitter wih dry, crunchy leaves, faint bread, a bit of citric astringency. Light bodies with fine carbonation. Somewhat dry to finish with more bitter, crunchy leaves, wood, faint dry fruits. Nothing special here.
