DanielBrown (3817) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 30, 2013
Cask at Hook Norton Brewery. Golden. Slight sourness from the errrr malt maybe. Tart on finish, which is pleasingly flavoursome. Damon Hill.

Imaena (1834) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JAN 9, 2013
This is a really nice smooth bitter that just goes down so easily. Great for a short session.

deyholla (6639) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - OCT 31, 2012
Cask with Sarah. Pours a clear amber gold with an off white head that dissipates to the edges and laces slightly. Aroma has notes of light fruit and light pine with a backing note of earthy grains. Flavor is easy to drink light pine with grapefruit and sweet grains.

JorgeLee (1191) - Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 30, 2012
Sampled from a cask direct from the brewery at Henry’s wedding. Poured an amber colour, bright in colour, looked very flat. I’d say something of a consistency of house character with the Hooky, but as a premium bitter had a more pronounced (boozy?) fruity malt character along with good levels of hop bitterness. A very tasty beer, I’d have had a few more but for the slightly aggressive abv, would be a dangerous session!

Brandman (2077) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 14, 2012
Clear coppery body, white head. Sweet malt, fruits, dates perhaps, nuts. Very nice bitterness and well balanced beer.

evergreen0199 (2013) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 28, 2012
Cask at Wetherspoons in Banbury, Oxfordshire. A straw coloured pour with a medium white head on top. Virtually no aroma to speak of. Tastes slightly hoppy, malty, hint of caramel. Not much activity in this one.

tombyars (1357) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - JAN 13, 2012
First tasted this in Coanes, Johnstone in August 1996. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear orange amber in colour with a thick white head. Short sweet golden syrup notes in the aroma. Thin resiny mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malts give a rich digestive biscuit base with sweet caramel notes. Yeasty bread notes in the short bitter aftertaste. Finish is slightly citrus with orange peel notes and a hint of liquorice. An ok session ESB.

thunder_head1 (79) - Reading, Berkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 15, 2011
Cask at the cross keys pangborne around july. Aroma has hints of fruit and taste is also fairly fruity like it slightly better on cask than bottle cant wait for next year.

DruncanVeasey (7191) - NUNEATON, Top 18, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - AUG 31, 2011
The Merchant, Rugby. Burnished orange gold with a low, lacing top. Slight orange and pine aroma. Thick and heady with hay, aniseed, orange and almond notes. Some cream and pine. A pint would be plenty. Decent, old school stuff but too much at lunchtime
