Cask conditioned handpump Eastgate Northampton 03/12/12 A darkish brown coloured beer with a whitish head. A slightly fruity aroma. Earthy flavours. A bit farty and really quite dull. At first I thought there was some spicing but I think that was just wishful thinking.

Leighton (18744) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 29, 2012
Cask at Hamilton Hall, JDW, London. Pours clear, light amber with a small, creamy head. Toasty malt nose with hints of brown sugar and bread. Light sweet flavor with low, lightly earhy bitterness, some dark berries and dried fruits, some dry bread. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Mild sweet finish with toasty sugars, light twigs, berries, faint earth. An unexciting but drinkable bitter.

imdownthepub (13397) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 29, 2012
Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Hazy amber with off white head. The malty body was pretty flat and lifeless, there was a slightly peachy fruity note to it along with a grainy bready note. Tasted quite cheap really. Not great.

sm89walt (1976) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - NOV 25, 2012
Cask - The Bell Hotel (JDW), Norwich. Poured an amber-hued brown with a one-finger, mostly lasting soapy off-white head. Biscuity pale malt, grassy English hops and some lightly spicy mid fruit notes to go round. Light to medium body, soft mouthfeel, short bittersweet finish. I noted this at 4% but everyone I can find online puts it down as 3.5%.
