Towey1989 (1821) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 23, 2015
Cask at The Roebuck, Leek (Titanic) A clear deep amber colour with a medium white head. Aroma of caramel, some nuts, a little yeast and subtle spicy hops. Taste of caramel, red berries, some nuts, slight bready malt and subtle spicy hops. Light bodied and soft carbonation. A dry, spicy hop bitterness in the finish. Quite similar to tiger at first but more fruitier and spicy. Ok but safe.

BlackHaddock (6351) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - DEC 23, 2014
23rd Dec 2014: hand-pulled cask pint in The Pheasant, Wellington Shropshire. Mahogany/chestnut body with an off-white crown that produced some good lacing. Malty and semi-sweet with a nutty feel to both the nose and taste. Slight spicy trace within the flavours and an easy drinking Christmas brew.

Fin (9596) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 13, 2014
Cask, handpump at a The White Horse, Banbury Beer Festival Meeting, Monday 13th January 2014 Amber in colour a little murky, malty in the mouth. As Glen correctly noted it is a touch tired perhaps, however it is still quite agreeable. Tangy, fruity and with a few things going on in the mouth, it is fine if somewhat predictable.

Cask @ Ship, Bromham Road, Bedford. A shade lighter tha chestnut brown. Faint aroma, consisting of caramel and toffee malt notes. Bittersweet. Rather bland, but certainly drinkable.

jmgreenuk (7690) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - DEC 29, 2012
Cask at The Wellington, Birmingham. Poured a clear copper colour with a broken white bubbly head. The aroma is malty but weak leading to a medium bitter flavour, with fruity hoppy dry bitter notes. The dry bitterness hits the palate fairly quickly and stays around for a while. Not quite what I would expect from Everards, but very welcome all the same.

Mmm nice I like it. Bright copper colour subtle citrus hoppiness with slight hoppy bitterness. I think this is delicious! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
