gegwilson (1199) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 6, 2014
Cask in the Tilley Shilling, Farnborough. A chestnut ale with no head. A malty brew with a touch of fruit cake and caramel, but there are vegetable notes in there too. An average bitter.

Cask-conditioned at the Seven Stars, Bristol 4/11/2013. Reddish-brown with a decent, frothy, off-white head. Sweetish, hedgerow fruits, a touch of caramel and a moderately bitter finish. Enjoyable.

hens (530) - Tallinn, Estonia, ESTONIA - JUN 11, 2013
0,5L bottle. The musty wood smell. Taste is like dirty rinsing water. Pointless sour watery beer. Never again.

planky84 (2112) - , Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 30, 2013

Cask conditioned handpump Queens Head Brighton 20/05/13. A russet brown coloured beer with a whitish bubbly head. A sweet malty nose with hints of caramel. Sweet and fruity in the mouth. Blackberry notes. The fruitiness in the mouth is really nice. A tasty sweeter beer.

FatPhil (9375) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 19, 2013
Cask (Gallows Bird, Espoo, Fest2013)
Sweet honeyish malts, a little fruity. A lovely rich orange and a light spongy persistent head. Watery palate. A bit earthy and watery, I even get an odd sourness. As dull as dishwater, definitely sub-par after the OK aroma.
