imdownthepub (11197) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 25, 2011
Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Chestnut with full head. Smooth nutty, roasty malts leading to a slightly metallic, hoppy note. Earthy rather than American in character, more British I reckon. A pretty decent offering.

BeerandBlues2 (10608) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 7, 2011
Tap. Pours clear copper with a medium fizzy off-white head, short retention with light lacing. Aroma is caramel and toast malt, light fruity esters and earthy, citrus, and floral hops. Flavor is light malt, medium hops and bitterness, light esters with a dry finish. Light body, low warmth and medium carbonation.

Cask Conditioned Handpump Figure Of Eight Birmingham. A chestnut coloured beer with a good tight white head. The aroma has jammy fruits, hops and toast. Good hops with berry fruits in the mouth. A long finish with more toast. Pretty decent.

Scopey (8515) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2011
Cask at Archibald Simpson’s, Aberdeen. It pours red-amber, with a thick off-white head. The nose is instant coffee, roasted malt, dough and spice. The taste is wood, filter coffee, spice, caramel, roasted malt, astringency, metal and a touch of chocolate, with big dry finish. Medium body and soft carbonation. A bit of a let-down.

slowrunner77 (6728) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 18, 2014
"there’s a quick sweetness to it up front, but that quickly fades and is overpowered by the hops. I’d like it to last just a bit longer, but this is a pretty good beer anyway."

berkshirejohn (5020) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 29, 2011
Cask at the Old Manor (JDW), Bracknell. Golden amber with a loose off-white head; aroma of American hops; rather thinly bodied, tasting of caramel malts and fresh hops with some resin; then some gentle peppery hops leading to a malty finish. Rather underwhelming.

Bullit (4122) - Burgos, SPAIN - SEP 13, 2011
Cask @ Sir John Moore, JDW. Amber colour, off-white head. Nose is light malted, citrus and pine. Flavour is slight toasted malts, citric, pine, some bitterness. Slightly sweet finish. A little one-dimensional.
