Cask, Castle Inn, Bradford-on-Avon ... Reddish brown with a quickly dissipating head. Nice bitter aroma and flavour. I detected a wisp of something out of the ordinary, almost Brettanomyces like. I liked it but I am unsure if it was supposed to be there?

FatPhil (8995) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 17, 2007
Cask (Black Door, Helsinki) Brown, as ale should be, with a loose head. Non-descript beery aroma. However, lovely milk and bitter mouthfeel. Full malty taste, bitter hazelnut tones. Finish is malty nutty and long.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 7, 2007
A Sim rate (cask up the Junction): Better than most of the beers I’ve had tonight. Tastes like red wine and hard liquor but a nicer mix that doesn’t make you sick. Some apple in there too. Smells fruity and malty. Quite nice.

UPDATED: JUN 25, 2007 Cask conditioned at the Cornubia, Bristol 4/4/07. Bronze coloured with slight head. Aroma predominantly of malt without being sweet. Flavour of subtle fruit with a balancing dry finish. A very well-balanced beer served in top condition.

Mungo (2472) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - APR 6, 2006
Cask conditioned @ Black Boy, Winchester. Lots of fruity malts, I felt it was more of a cherry type fruit but could go with strawberry. Toasted grainy malts. Lightly sweet and gentle hop finish. Really tasty.

Cask@The Red Lion, Isleworth, WLondon. Some jammy fruit in here, definitely some strawberry. Toffee, wholemeal grainnyness, quite nice and on the maltier side of things.

Cask gravity dispense at Red Lion, Isleworth. Brown/ruby with no head. Good malts. Really good fruit, strawberry jam like, bit of camp coffee. Really my kind of beer. Good intensity and excellent red berry fruit. Very jammy
