dnas2 (705) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, - APR 23, 2010
Cask handpump at The Maypole, Cambridge. Dark copper in appearance, clear with a medium-thick head. Scent of roast hops and some berry fruit. Mouth is slightly sugary with a hint of carbonation. Slightly dry. Thin. Cranberry aroma clears quickly to leave some malts. Not really that bitter. Not much to it overall.

Kings Head, Norwich. Light brown clear beer. Low carbonation, semi dry palate. Nutty with a very light touch of chocolate. A little lactose and a trace of glue! A peep of hop fruit in the finish. Not bad.

Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAY 30, 2011
Cask at the Bricklayers Arms Norfolk & Suffolk festival, 23rd Sept 2010. Perfectly clear copper. Soft toffee nose and a similar, malt-led flavour. Light, quaffing-friendly palate as expected. A lunchtime session bitter.

Cask (Cambridge Winter Ale Festival 2011)
Mid cupric colour. Honey and sweet mash in the aroma, some fresh resiny hops too. Lovely milky malts in the finish. Gentle hops show a little fruitiness, but some of that is esters. Great full-flavoured bitter.

JamieFerdinand (163) - Hove, East Sussex, ENGLAND - OCT 3, 2010
Draught at The Radcliffe Arms, Hitchin - 1/10/10. Earthy nose with some syrup in there as well. Berries in the late taste or early palate. Surprisingly tasty for a fairly weak beer.

imdownthepub (10647) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 27, 2010
Cask conditioned at The Kings Head, Norwich. Amber with white head. Dry and malty bitter, light graininess and a late bitterness. A little unrefined, but quite drinkable.

sm89walt (1780) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUL 30, 2010
Cask - The Plough, Norwich. Poured a standard bitter amber colour with a small, lasting off-white head. Light mid fruits, tangerine and toasty malt aromas. A nutty, toasty bitterness folows a mid fruit sweetness and tang. Soft body, low carbonation with a yeastiness in the finish. Perhaps just a touch watery and no great shakes but it gets the job done satisfactorily.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 7, 2010
UPDATED: JAN 17, 2011 Cask, gravity, at the Pig ’n’ Falcon, St Neots, Cambridgeshire. Brown. Faint malt aroma. Taste was a bit thin and watery, but there were pleasant sweet nutty notes. Very slight bitterness. 17.1.11 Same location. Hairy malt aroma. Earthy rather than nutty. Rating:6,4,5,3,12:3.0
