mR_fr0g (2403) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 12, 2014
Cask at the ship inn, Deal Kent. Aroma is sweet caramel, silage, wet grass, tobacco. Light amber coloured pour with a lasting loose white head. Flavour is tart sharp green apples, caramel, unrefined sugars, fermenting grass. Palate is light tart and grainy. Tart finish. Pretty poor example of the beer.

jjsint (627) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 12, 2014
Cask @ Rushden Historical Transport Society. Mid-brown with a big ass beige head. Astringent and vinous scent with persistent woody undertones. Bittersweet leading to a muted finish. Quite disagreeable bitterness in the aftertaste. A stereotypical twiggy brown best bitter. Not bad, not interesting.

Cask at Moeder Lambic Fontainas. Pours dark amber, hazy with white head. Aroma is malty, sweet, touch of honey. Taste is light sweet, medium bitter, some fruitiness. Refreshing beer with bitter aftertaste and soft carbonation. Quite good.

Beese (1462) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 25, 2014
Cask at the Moon Under Water (JDW), Watford on 9 April 2013. Poured a hazy amber with a thin, white head. Malt heavy aroma with some grassy hop character and caramel. Initial flavours were standard bitter, but un objectionable; some chewy malt, brown sugar and slightly peppery hop. Finish was smooth, treacle and brown bread with a little hop resin.

allmyvinyl (2802) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 16, 2014
500ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Dark brown pour, no had. Aromas of burnt sugar, not a right lot else. Metallic and watery, probably better on cask.

Taste is sweetish toffee, caramel malts, slight candy sugar, cobwebs & bitter finish of herbal hops. Slightly watery & oily body. Solid bitter but not very exiting.
