Ethereal (2410) - Los Angeles, California, USA - FEB 17, 2009

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 12, 2008
Cask, gravity, at Bedford BF ’08. Copper. Musty, dusty, resiny aroma: a description that does it no justice. Very evocative, but of what exactly I do not know. Rough sourness and aggressive malt dominates, with some pear fruit perhaps. Some bitterness. Not a pretty beer, but engaging in a challenging sort of way.

albertane (377) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAR 2, 2008
Cask at the Chestnut Tree, Sherwood, Nottingham. This has a pleasing copper colour with plenty of malt. There’s lots of caramel and roasted flavours with some floral hops on the finish. I wouldn’t go out of my way to have it again, but it’s not at all bad.

harrisoni (12648) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 3, 2007
Cask handpull at Market Porter, Borough Market. Gold/copper with thin beige head. Watery bitter. Sometimes I despair of this pub and the condition of some of the beer. Some rose petal fruit, some stingy hop on end. Rose petal fruit is good. Perfumey.
