harrisoni (14141) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2008
Cask gravity at SIBA BF, Paddock Wood. Hazy russet, thin beige head. It’s a slightly malty, red berry best bitter, some mild choc. It’s ok, nothing exceptional.

imdownthepub (10662) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 5, 2013
Cask conditioned at The Turf Tavern, Oxford. Chestnut with slight head. A pretty smooth, malty beer with heavy toffee, caramel flavours. Quite cloying and a touch sweet for me to really enjoy it. Not totally sure about this one.

hopscotch (9559) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 8, 2009
Bottle… Cloudy burnt-orange ale with no head. The aroma is of caramel and nuts. Medium-bodied and watery with expired carbonation. Not much at all going on with the flavor – thin with a watery finish. Bottle courtesy of TheCheeseMan! Can’t win them all.

Fin (7707) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 5, 2009
Cask (Gravity) at Charlbury Beer festival 04-07-09 Pours hazy dark amber, another beer that whilst tasted fine, condition wise was a little too hazy. Some dusty hops show. Its fruity feels quite thick in the mouth, drinks well but never excites. A6 A2 F6 P3 Ov13 3.0

chriso (7428) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 18, 2006
Cask (gravity dispense) at Ealing Beer Festival, May 2006. More deep copper colour than red, I’d say. Toffee and faint chocolate in the aroma. Soft, smooth mouthfeel with some caramel malt and a touch of treacle sweetness. Dries out a bit on the finish. Despite all the malt touches, the mouthfeel was a bit lightweight. More hop presence would have pepped this up a bit.

A Mes rate: bottle thanks to Tashi.
Lovely red brown colour with a bubbly off white head. Peachy fruity aroma with some pineapple and sweet malt in the background. Dry and dusty flavour with some alka seltzer like tangy character. Earthy malt is a little too earthy if you get me. Dry finish with a hint of bitterness. nothing special.
