jmgreenuk (4472) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 6, 2013
Cask at the Walsall Beer Festival 2013. Poured a crystal clear light yellow colour with a thin glass hugging white head. The aroma is of stale malt leading to a medium bitter, malty flavour. To be honest, it was not that impressive and tasted more like a malted Black Label. A bit of a disappointment really.

imdownthepub (10325) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 8, 2012
Cask conditioned at The Anchor, Birmingham. Pale gold with slight head. Tartish, peachy fruitiness right from the start, thin on the palate, some caramel and hints of sweetness. Not the best from this brewery.

Oakes (12633) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 7, 2010
Cask, Foot of the Mile, Leith. Golden-amber. Leafy, berryish hop aroma. Herbal bitterness. Earthy accents - a subtle complexity. Long, dry finish. Very good character to this one.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - OCT 25, 2010
Cask @ Foot of the Mile. Warm honey-gold with tight head. Hoppy aroma is bright, leafy, and herbal. Excellent flavors. The hops are upfront, yielding to a lovely pale malt sweetness in the middle, finishing crisp and hoppy. Worty sugars and bright American hops that coat the tongue in their luscious oils. Balanced and delicious.

downender (6293) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 22, 2010
Cask-conditioned at the Lord Moon of the Mall (JDW), 14/10/10. Amber coloured with a slight white head. Biscuity malts, a touch of grassy hop and decent bitter finish. Ok.
