berkshirejohn (4440) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - APR 25, 2012
Cask at the Prince Arthur (JDW), Fleet. Amber with a thin cream head; grassy, herbal, aroma; thin body, with a simple caramel malt flavour; then some muddled vegetable/herbal bitterness leading to a dry, biscuity finish. This didn’t live up to my expectations.

fonefan (34595) - VestJylland, DENMARK - NOV 28, 2010

Cask (handpump) @ Three Guineas, Station Approach, Reading, Berkshire, England RG1 1LZ.

Clear medium orange amber color with a small to average, frothy, fair lacing, mostly diminishing, off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, caramel, toffee, moderate to heavy hoppy, butter. Flavor is moderate sweet and bitter with a average to long duration. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft to flat. [20100429]

DruncanVeasey (7134) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAY 5, 2010
Cask gravity, Reading 2010. Honey amber with a loose white head. Orange and gooseberry in the aroma; sickly vanilla dabs. Hops more as a bittering presence than anything; vague orange and grassiness, plastic apple, stale oak, good greenery on the burp. Lovely fresh Rich Tea linger: more malt character than hop. Underwhelming festival opener.
