[Cask at Burnt Oak, Milton Keynes] A pale orangey brown bitter with a slight white head. Decent enough earthy hops, some malt, a moderate bitterness. Overall enjoyable enough, easy to drink, but an average, and fairly forgettable bitter.

Cask-conditioned at the Mad Bishop and Bear, Paddington Station 20/6/08. Deep gold in colour with a fluffy white head. Aroma of caramel and grassy hops. Flavour started sweet before a touch of spice and a decent bitter finish. Good.

Red Lion Pub in Wendover -- Wonderful, a Friday night, a crowded pub, my last night in England, finally feeling good after a horrible cold, the kids are at home--nice. Oh yea, the beer was pretty good too. I didn’t take notes at the time, but the beer was yeasty with some citrus feel. Good pub brew and good times.

Cask @ some Soho pub, London.
Pours light coppery amber with a small, white film head. Aroma is pretty hoppy, grassy, mild caramel and a lot of cookie-dough. Fine mouthfeel. Flavour is rounded, nice bitterness, subdued pine and grass with a little caramel.

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - APR 11, 2008
UPDATED: JAN 6, 2010 Cask conditioned - handpump - Wig & Pen, Northampton. A light amber coloured beer with an off white head and lacing. The aroma is pretty thin, but decent enough. Light in taste but pretty nicely balanced. Some slightly sweet floral notes. Quite a safe bitter but certainly drinkable. Score 2.9
Subsequent rating scored 2.8. Score unchanged

KnutAlbert (6312) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 5, 2007
Cask. Smooth, light ale, not much of a body, but it has a pleasant hoppy aftertaste. there is a hint of fruit - ripe apples - in there somewhere.

Rastacouere (6148) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 3, 2007
Clear deep golden pour. Thick, nitro-like sparkler’s head. Timid nose frankly, limited to grainy cereals. In mouth, more hops manage to chime in, but they’re really only herbal and simplistic while the malts dominate with strawy and bready notes. Soft creamy mouthfeel.
