Desverger (4590) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 1, 2015
Cask@Wibbas down inn JDW, Wimbledon - amber pour with good sized white head. Aroma and taste is toasty malty, twiggy herbal hoppy notes, caramel, nutty, some dark dried fruity nuances, have had before many moons ago with variable quality but never rated, and never at the condition on this rate which was spot on. Great stuff.

Leighton (14674) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 30, 2015
Cask at many Fullerís pubs around London. A true classic. Pours clear copper-gold with a frothy, white head. The nose has a bit of toasted leaves and grains, understated bready malts, traces of orange peel. Light sweet flavor with mild leafy bitterness, further lightly toasted bread, impressions of British yeast, citrus fruit. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Wonderfully balanced on the finish, with some crispy bread, biscuits, leaves, mild citrus. When on form, this is a superlative beer.

ARH (911) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 14, 2015
On cask, poured into a nonic. The aroma is kinda funky with mildew and sulfur notes followed by leather and citrus peel. It pours an oily, orange amber with a white soapy head that has light retention and mild lace. Itís a pretty well balanced, medium bittersweet. The texture is on the watery side of oily with a smooth, near flat carbonation. The light body has muted flavors of nuts and caramel with a finish thatís caramel syrup and an aftertaste thatís mild with notes of nuts and caramel.

kidlupin (4) - NORTHERN IRELAND - AUG 27, 2015 does not count
Bridge House, Belfast : perfectly clear dark amber beer, good thick pale head, low carbonation. Not much aroma but perfectly balanced hop and malt flavours, absolutely none of the dryness that is so typical these days in similar beers. Very sessionable.

Scopey (9735) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 26, 2015
Cask at The Swan, Lancaster Gate. Drank this one plenty of times in the past, so thought Iíd better rate it. It pours clear amber with a decent white head. The nose is toasty grain, brown bread, nuttiness and some sweet caramel/toffee. The taste is a bit bitter upfront, wood, earth, leather, nut, caramel, brown bread, toasty grain and light varnish with a dry finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. A good gateway cask all. It is well-rounded and drinkable, but relatively uneventful. OK.

MMR (593) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 15, 2015
Nice British Bitter. It has a nice aroma of malt and hops and a decent balance between the two of them.

Cask at the GBBF 2015. High fluffy white lasting head. Beautiful clear dark amber body. Sweet mild malt fruit caramel aroma. Malt fruit caramel flavor, relatively bitter and dusty with a low carbonation and a long dry and bitter finish.

Great refreshment but lacks distinctiveness , that said better than average main stream beer and a nice tipple, being well balanced and without some of the negative elements some ales in rhis class build up over a few drinks

Cunningham (5828) - Halden, NORWAY - AUG 5, 2015
Golden color with a creamy off white head. Toffee and a bit hoppy nose. Mellow sweet malty flavour with a some toffee and pleasant hoppy. A bit soft carbonation. Nice easy drinkable session ale.
