JorgeLee (1250) - Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 11, 2012
Cask in the Volunteer, NW1. An orange brown beer with a white head. Labelled as an American Pale Ale, this is actually an English bitter with a fairly earthy (ash?) hop character. Not especially easy drinking, or tasty, wasn’t overimpressed.

kwik-lime (1358) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 4, 2012
Hoppy, quite earthy, some ash, slightly cloying. Interesting bitter, but not convinced that's a good thing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

HogTownHarry (6127) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - AUG 22, 2012
Handpull at The Blackfriar. Clear amber-gold with a tiny frothy head. Odd aroma - grassy, overripe mango for days. Taste- oh my, is that right? - spoilt fruit and paint thinner - not at all nice. Average body, slick, low carbonation and a long harsh varsol finish. Not even slightly good.

Rune (8348) - Tromsø, NORWAY - AUG 9, 2012
Half pint on hand pump at Victoria Hotel in Leeds. Clear amber, firm white head, good lacing. Malt-fruity aroma. Caramel malts to the taste buds partly offset by mild, fruity bitterness. Malt bittersweet ending. Rather tasty (11.07.2012).

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - AUG 4, 2012
Cask conditioned handpump Adelphi Leeds 24/07/12. An amber coloured beer with a tight white head and lacing. A biscuity beer with light hop notes. Fairly dry. Mostly sweet; certainly not an APA as claimed on the pumpclip.

tkrjukoff (4100) - SWEDEN - JUL 26, 2012
Tap at Clachan, London. Pours clear amber with a good creamy beige head leaving lace. Arma is dry grassy a bit ashy malty and fruity. Flavor is dry malty hoppy bitter grassy and bready with a touch of nuttyness. Finishes bitter dry and fruity.
