Ethereal (2410) - 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.

SaintMatty (4742) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - AUG 27, 2008
Cask (The Bell,Whitchurch) - Golden/amber in colour. Lightly hoppy aroma with some grapefruit and tea notes. Refreshing light hoppy notes in the taste with tea and grapefruit featuring again with a malty element. Well balanced.

Nice enough in itself but does not inspire. Roadblocks an nose but tastes a bit thin . Hoppy

[Cask conditioned] Amber coloured. Very fruity aroma and flavour. Very fresh and pleasant. Trevor Goddard is one of my favourite actors.

Vignale (1805) - Malmö, SWEDEN - SEP 29, 2010
Goddards standard ale. Ett bra hantverk men inget som stack ut. Typisk engelsk EKG karaktär.

queenholly (2612) - 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.

Lovely dry black tea aroma. Some earthy bitterness. Very well attenuated palate, but a little watery. dry earthy hops, quite thin. Carbonation low. Well made and easily drinkable, but a bot watery for me.

a_cross (525) - Poole, Dorset, ENGLAND - JUN 23, 2013
Cask at The Bermuda Triangle, Poole, badged as Special Bitter rather than Scrumdiggity; amber-brown; moderate white frothy head; unassuming fruit and malt aroma; fruity ripe citrus flavour balanced by plenty of developing woody hop bitterness; a straightforward, sessionable bitter.
