Rastacouere (6174) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 19, 2007
Cask. Clear orange to amber pour wearing a fine off-white head with good lacing. Kinda oily, flowery nose bearing mostly leafy aromas. Obviously focusing on bitterness more than aromatics. Orangey, biscuity palate with a mild toastiness. Fruity, generic malts. Just simplistic and sweetish in the end, the hops promises never get through. The bitterness does not slice through the sweetness. Light-medium bodied, little carbonation at all.

Sigmund (6745) - Tau, NORWAY - JUN 11, 2007
Cask conditioned at the Aidensfield Arms, Goathland. This is a standard English bitter, not what you would think of as a well-hopped "IPA". Deep golden brown colour, low creamy head. Nice hoppy / fruity aroma. Smooth mouthfeel and flavour. Not very bitter at all.

berkshirejohn (6066) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 25, 2006
Handpump at Weatherspoons, Heathrow Terminal 2 - amber colour with a creamy white head which lasted all the way down, smooth to drink, suspiciously like a nitro-brew. Floral, hoppy, aroma with a clean bitter taste, and no finish.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 19, 2006
UPDATED: JUN 30, 2008 Cask at The Encore (Beefeater) Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire, before seeing Patrick Stewart (Star Trek-TNG’s Capt. Picard) in ’The Tempest’ at Royal Shakespeare Theatre. His performance was considerably better than the beer which was amber with a small white head. Faint fruit and malt aromas. Fruity taste with some pear and background bitterness. 30.6.08 Cask at George Inn, March, Cambridgeshire. Fruity aroma and malty taste. Not much bitterness. Served a little warm. Rated: 4,3,5,3,10:2.5

dnas2 (705) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JUN 18, 2006
Cask handpump. Copper colour with a short head. Almost no scent. Slightly watery and fizzy in the mouth. Not very much taste: slighly citrus and malty in the mouth but really not much taste at all. Not bad, though.

A Mes rate: Cask at the Man City pub in Cheadle Hulme. Typical English ale with a touch of citrus and a floral finish. Watery and not too great. Um yeah thats about it.
