jackl (4299) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - NOV 28, 2012
Cask @ The Star Tavern. The pourís reddish amber with a tiny orange white head. The nose is jammy berry, some cherry, sweet malty aromas. Hints of grass and spruce tree hoppiness. The taste is smooth, rich malts. Honey-baked brown bread. Caramelized red berries. The finish has a touch of peppery hops and cedar wood. Smooth, easy to drink. Soft carbonation. Overall, not bad. I like this more than Wild River...

Pizd (432) - Merseyside, ENGLAND - NOV 18, 2013
(Cask): Ruby brown with a small white head. Aroma of malt and fruits. Malty flavour, some biscuit and fruit notes on the finish. Quite a generic beer but is nice for winter months.

fiulijn (14294) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 17, 2013
Cask at Bishopís Arms, MalmŲ, Norra Vallgatan
Cloudy amber color with some head. The aroma shows signs of English hops, some yeast, and light esters. Smooth undercarbonated mouthfeel; it had a sharp yeasty character, somehow expected in a bitter, light lemony touch, and also a rather metallic final.
A bit harsh, but itís nice to get a cask Bitter once in a whileÖ

BeerViking (2293) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2013
Cask at the Tap on the Line, Kew. Red-brown with a fine thin head and a fruit-malty nose. Very nice winter ale with nut & chocolate-toffee notes, light dry-bitter finish.

Sigmund (4936) - Tau, NORWAY - NOV 10, 2013
Sample from cask at the brewery. Amber to reddish brown colour. Very moderate aroma, a hint of citrussy hops. The flavour is moderately malty and biscuity, some bitterness in the finish, but not impressive. Might rerate when I get a full pint.

VastActiv (2542) - Oulu, FINLAND - NOV 1, 2013
Cask at St Urhoís Pub, Helsinki. Colour is clear orange with small white head. Aromas and flavours: Sweetness, bitterness and malts. Little bit of raw in my opinion.
