UPDATED: MAR 14, 2009 Cask at Wellington Arma, Bedford. Golden colour. Faint hop aroma. Citric, almost lemony flavour. Loads of fruit, mid to low bitterness. 14.3.09 Same location. Colour more amber, I thought. Very faint malt aroma. Fresh, thin fruitiness. grainy background. Acceptable but ordinary bitter. 3,4,5,3,12:2.7

allmyvinyl (2889) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 18, 2014
Cask at The Market Tavern, Preston. Pours hazy amber with a thick white head. Nose is a bit yeasty, some caramel malt. Taste has a chalky bitterness and more caramel. Light body, thin finish. OK.

Mungo (2472) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - SEP 29, 2006
Cask conditioned @ Humble Plumb, Soton. Copper coloured. Crystal malts and hints of floral hops. Tastes watery and a little bland.

Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - AUG 9, 2011
Cask at the Express, Kew Bridge, 8th Dec 2010. Bright clear amber with a line of white head. Soft malty nose. Uninspiring watery cold tea taste. Goes down easy but a perfect example of why some people look down on session ales.

ladnewton (1375) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 13, 2010
Cask at the Kingston Arms, Cambridge, on 26 November 2010. Copper with thin, greyish ring of head. Mainly sweet with any hops fairly subtle and a light fruity aroma. Light and rather watery mouthfeel.

bobinlondon (1256) - Harrow, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 6, 2009
Handpulled cask at the Bre Louise. Copper with a thin white head. Dry malt and tinny hops. Not one I’d rush to try again.

haddonsman (1234) - Derby, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - JAN 10, 2006
Cask (handpulled) at Langty’s, Nottingham. On DeepBlack’s stag crawl. In a day that brough forth a whole host of beer styles, this was a dependable bitter. Nothing fancy, just good plain session stuff.

MrWalker (926) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 28, 2005
Cask @ Camra National Winter Ale Festival, Manchester, UK 27 Jan 2005
Nice session beer with some malt. Refreshingly undemanding. Good hoppy aftertaste.

niquillis (812) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 28, 2011
On cask at The Congress, Longton. Pours amber with a white foam head. An interesting start, taste of a white paper bag that’s had a 10p mix in it. Grassy middle, flavoursome for a low ABV ale.
