fonefan (43888) - VestJylland, DENMARK - MAR 24, 2009
Cask (handpump) @ Wenlock Arms, 26 Wenlock Road, London, Greater London England N1 7TA.
Clear medium orange brown color with a average, fizzy, fair lacing, mostly diminishing, off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, roasted, berry - juniper berry, overriped raisin notes, nutty notes, a bit cider alike with strawberry and marple syrup notes. Flavor is moderate to light light light heavy sweet, bitter and vinegar - balsamico notes with a long to average duration. Body is light to medium, texture is watery to oily, carbonation is flat to soft. [20090102]

Handpulled cask at JDW Harrow. Brown/amber with an off white head. Sweet and overpowered by diacetyl. I found it hard to finish.

DonMagi (5593) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 26, 2008
Cask in the new crown. Aroma is toffee caramel malts, some fruity berry yeasty character. Taste is similar, not much hop character, quite sweet.

imdownthepub (13234) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 21, 2007
Cask conditioned at The Hobgoblin, Reading, Berks. Brown amber with slight head. This tasted of over ripe fruit, that slightly rotting aroma and with a sicky type taste, perfumed, not particularly very pleasant.

harrisoni (17282) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 3, 2007
Cask handpull at Market Porter, Borough Market. Chestnut colour with thin beige head. Decent ESB. Good rich fruits up front. Still a little watery, but black cherry/damson flavours kick in. One of the better beers here. Good vanilla and strawberry/raspberry jam flavour. Lovely.
