allmyvinyl (3087) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 26, 2014
Cask at The York Tap. Pours clear copper, little to no head. No carbonation. Aromas of biscuit, bread. Taste is sweet, very light herbal tickle at the end. Pretty boring brown booze.

jjsint (725) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 9, 2014
Cask @ Golden Pheasant, Biggleswade. Light thin brown colour. Malty, raisin aroma, not very strong. Taste is very agreeable: sweet fruit rounding to bitter edges. A well made and moreish best bitter, a good representative of the style.

On tap at the Cask and Barrel. Appearance - amber with a nice head. Nose - malt and resin. Taste - toffee some biscuits but slight astringency. Palate - light to medium bodied with a tangy texture and a slightly astringent finish. Overall - solid but not special.

Pint at the Blue Post in North Frodingham. Amber with a big creamy head. Fruity and smooth with peach notes. Light fruit aroma. Good enough I had a second!

Garrold (1214) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 12, 2013
Cask at Pipe and Glass, South Dalton. Was looking forward to this, as other beer from this brewery Iíve usually liked a lot. But this was a bit heavy going. Like drinking a dry hunk of unbuttered granary bread. And thatís not easy.

dogbomb (938) - ENGLAND - JUL 28, 2012
Bottle. Dark amber colour with an off-white head with assorted bubbles. Nose is heavy on malt, with some light floral hoppiness. Feels a bit heavy in the mouth, a little slick. Heavy on the malt again, with some orangey/citrus hops. A little heavy and bready. Finish is heavy, grainy and dry.
