Towey1989 (1820) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 2, 2015
Cask at The Roebuck, Leek (Titanic) A clear deep amber colour with a medium off white head. Aroma of caramel, dark berries, some biscuit, subtle pine and spicy hops. Taste of caramel, biscuit, some raisin, slight pine, subtle chocolate, maybe pepper and late spicy, slightly herbal hops. Medium bodied and soft carbonation. A dry, spicy hop bitterness in the finish. Quite a weird one this, starts malty and slight fruity but ends quite dry with a big, spicy finish. Ok but wasn’t expecting this.

kerenmk (4093) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - NOV 23, 2013
Cask at the Thithe Bar, Northallerton, September 2013. Clear brown with beige head. Cocoa and spices like cardamom, onion and clove in the nose. Tastes weird - black pepper and paprika. Light body, chocolate cake finish. Curiosity, gimmick, but nice.

JohnRMurdoch (4366) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - NOV 8, 2013
Cask @ SIBA Craft Beer Festival, Glasgow. Reddish brown, reasonable head. Spicy leafy resin aroma. Bitter woody biscuit grain flavour. Sharp with bitter aftertaste. I like this beer.

gowdy (966) - Erskine, SCOTLAND - OCT 12, 2013
Half pint Cask at The Inn At Inverbeg during their First Annual Beer Festival. A bit hazy with medium head, that lasts.

tombyars (1589) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - SEP 7, 2013
Tasted this at the Fairlie BF@ Village Inn in August 2013. Cask, gravity dispense. Opaque russet in colour with no head. Dusty floral hop note in the short aroma. Thin resiny mouthfeel and no lacing. Mixed malts give a biscuit base with tart pink grapefruit noted in the mouth. Slight cabbage note present in the aftertaste with floral hops imparting a resiny dryness. Finish is on the hoppy side with dry resins evident. A poor example of an Amber Ale and nothing of note here to be honest.

Rune (11120) - Tromsø, NORWAY - AUG 23, 2013
Cask, 4.0 % abv, half pint at Cloisters. Golden-brown body with a reddish glint. Beige layer blanketing the glass. Malt-fruity nose. Flavours of leafy hops and caramel malts. Deep bitter ending. Medium to thin bodied. Just alright (Edinburgh 07.08.2013).
