DJMonarch (9158) - Northwich, Cheshire, ENGLAND - SEP 4, 2006
Cask Handpump at the Penny Black, Northwich (JDW) 05/07/2006 Some fruit aroma. Copper coloured and fruity with slightly peppery spiced flavour. Some dryness and bitterness in a crisp full malt finish.

harrisoni (13144) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 19, 2006
Cask handpull at Folkestone Wetherspoons. Copper colour with lasting beige head. Toffee and hop aroma. Creamy in mouth. Not at all bad. Quite pleasant session bitter with nice sweetish hops on the end.

   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 3/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 9/20
Mungo (2472) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - JUN 8, 2006
Cask conditioned @ Standing Order (JDW), Soton. Mid brown. Sweet malt peachy hops and usual Greene King nutty crystal which is even more out of place here than it usually is. Starts out fairly well but rapidly downhill from there.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 13/20
imdownthepub (9954) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 5, 2006
Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Brown amber with bubbly head. Another World cup and yet more beers, this one isn’t bad though. A sweetish hop wih an underlying sharp mineral taste and an eggy sulpher note. Easy playing session beer.
