jmgreenuk (4109) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - FEB 28, 2013
Cask at the Craven Arms, Birmingham. Poured a clear amber with a thin bubbly white head. The aroma is malty, but weak. The flavour is weak bitter, a little malty and some citrus hints. A very agreeable and drinkable session beer but I would prefer a little more bitterness if i’m honest.

Finn (4032) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 24, 2014
Fra cask/gravity på den koselige - og knøttlille - Newport Ale House, Isle of Wight 24 Jan 14. Mørk gylden. 0 skum. Svak ferskenaroma. Smaken litt vassen. Mandler. Svakt søtlig ettersmak. Grei - men litt kjedelig.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 4, 2011
Cask at Wellington Arms, Bedford. Copper amber with a small white head. Very faint aroma, possibly malty. Taste is grapey and vinous, with a mid bitter finish and an agreeable aftertaste.

johndoughty (3890) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 22, 2004
A robust bitter with plenty of flavour that explodes im your mouth.Very well balanced and in a field full of mundane bitters this one really stands out.

Patrickctenchi (3478) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - MAY 27, 2012
Pours red-amber with active off white head. Aroma is sweet malt, earth. Taste is tea....smooth bitter hops. A nice, soft feel to this one. Light, mild, excellent.

queenholly (2861) - South Whitley, Indiana, USA - APR 6, 2012
Bottle courtesy of shubber85. Light amber with a small white head. Sweet malty aroma with a faint hint of spice... almost like cinnamon. Slightly sweet biscuity malt and a light herbal hops finish. Light bodied.

mR_fr0g (2529) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 15, 2011
Bottle from Tesco. Burnt orange pour with absolutely no head. This bottle may not have been treated very well. Big skunky metalic smell. Palete is very thin. Flavour is metalic slightly nutty. Worst beer I’ve have in a long time.

Mungo (2472) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - APR 1, 2006
Bottle (from Bitter Virtue, BBE Oct 06). Fruity hops to the fore with gentle malt sweetness in the mouth. Well balanced but just lacking a little pazaz.

Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 26, 2007
Cask at the Bargeman’s Rest, Newport, Isle of Wight, 5th Sept 2007 (thanks to the lads at Stainless Games). Strong aroma of fruit and wine, but a bit musty. Clear amber appearance. Rich, malty taste - reminded me of Wadworth 6X. Full bodied but short on the finish. Good enough but not great.
