Scopey (6651) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 24, 2013
Cask gravity at White Horse. It pours deep ruby with a small beige. The nose is berry, jammy, toast, juicy, caramel and Vimto. The taste is wood, tangy, red berry, toast, roasty, juicy fruit, jam and dark fruit with a dry finish. Medium body and soft carbonation. A big improvement on the bottled version. Tasty.

I rate beers I think significantly better than average, simple as that. I am not into showing off through word games. :)

jjsint (725) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 19, 2013
Opaque chocolate brown. Light aroma of forest fruit malt. Not overly great taste, full but simple. Sweet with a token bitterness. Decent but by no means outstanding strong bitter.

minutemat (1497) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 9, 2013
Cask at The Shrewsbury Hotel, Shrewsbury. Dark brown colour, liquorice, leather but still quite a fresh taste with pleasing bitterness. Ok.

mR_fr0g (2847) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 20, 2013
Cask at the moon under water watford. Dark copper colour with a persistent blotchey cream head. Aroma is rye bread and choc with hints of nuts. Flavour is malt forward, nutty choc. But there are some higher alcohols. Raisin berry fruity notes as well.

hadronzugzwang (1) - West Sussex, ENGLAND - APR 25, 2013 does not count
This stuff is consistently underrated. Marvellous stuff! It has a caramel/chocolatey zing.

Rune (7948) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 19, 2013
Cask, full pint at Minster Inn. Creamy, tan-coloured head that stays well leaving spotty lacing down the glass. Bright mahogany coloured body – very nice, indeed. Semi-sweet caramel nose. Dark caramel taste added by a touch of chocolate. Smooth roasted bitter finish. Medium bodied. Tasty (York, 26.01.2013).

DandyLion (515) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 16, 2013
Guest Cask at the Clarendon, Leicester. Dark ruby red colour with off white creamy head. Big malty aroma. Surprisingly drinkable. Malty taste with slightly sweet finish and bitter aftertaste. Nice- certainly rather have this than a hobgoblin. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
