Nothing special to write home about. Even though I like cask ales, there is something wrong when its about craft beer,

Nov 2014 - Cask at Draft House. Pale orange, light haze, still, big white head, light lacing. Aroma is musty perfume. Body is medium, slightly foamy, low carbonation. Taste is semisweet caramel, musty bitterness, tangy and drying hop...hard to describe it more precisely. Top condition. Lovely balanced beer with my sort of flavours. (3.7)

Apr 2015 - Cask at Carpenters Arms, Fitzrovia. Flavour is light, pale malts, light astringency. Hmm, big difference. Conditioning or batch variation? (3.1)

Aurelius (4603) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 31, 2014
Nice UK pint bottle, OK label. Foggy, oaky gold-blonde brew with a lacy white head. Resinous, lemony, dry caramel aroma, with alphalpha. Overwrought, hoppy flavor. Somewhat sour, mostly dry, immature hoppiness -- like sucking on pelletized hops. Body is a bit over medium weight. Warming and citrus on the backend. Eagle’s Landing Bottle Shop, Stockbridge, GA.

Cask in the Town Street Tavern, Horsforth. Straw coloured with a white head. A pleasant bitter hoppy pale ale. Citrus notes. Simple but OK.

mcberko (8725) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 29, 2014
On tap at North Bar, pours a clear golden with a small white head. Nose brings out mushroomy English malts and very light floral notes. Flavour is very soft, with biscuity malt, delicate floral hops and mushroomy notes. Very soft and restrained, though easy to drink. Decent.

500ml bottle, clear amber with a small white head that dissipates fairly quickly leaving only a little lacing. Aroma is mild and lager-like, flavours are simple and clean, reasonable amount of hops. Simple and pleasant session ale.
