Not served in very good condition, but lacks the flavour and freshness that I remember from a long time a go.

allmyvinyl (4492) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 17, 2015
Cask at platform 5. Pours clear amber, thin white head. Aromas of caramel and little else. Taste is caramel and a mineral chalkiness. Thin body, sweet finish. Everything you’d expect.

crossovert (8206) - Illinois, USA - DEC 12, 2014
It isn’t much. Sweet biscuit malt and huge tea character especially the "suitable for night area" that I drink.

gegwilson (1542) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 22, 2014
Cask in the Three Fiddles, Guisborough. Amber with a cream head. The taste is biscuit malt with a little citrus. Not as bad as I remember it being, though still average at best. Some soap.

The_Osprey (2215) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 2, 2014
Cask at the Willow Walk, Victoria. Light orange, slight haze, still, small foamy white head. Aroma has light caramel and stale bread. Body is light, slightly foamy with a touch of carbonation. Taste is white bread baguette, light toffee sweetness, softly bitter. Condition seemed decent enough here. Middle of the road.

Iznogud (1016) - CROATIA - NOV 1, 2014
On tap at The Red Lion, Gatwick. Pours golden orange with small white head. Caramel malty, bit watery. Light bodied. Can’t see why it’s labeled as IPA.
