Cask handpull at Penderels Oak JDW Holborn. Clear amber colour lasting beige head. English yeast some hop presence. Some hop sting on finish. Its a English strong bitter. Fine but really dull Englush beer. Where is the Dutch influence here? fine if uninspiring

Cask at one of the Manchester Wetherspoons back in 2011. Notes from that time only say weak bodied and lacks flavour.

Cask Handpump at the Paramount JDW, Manchester 27/03/2011 Citrus and pine hop aromas. Golden coloured and smooth on the palate with some alcohol present. Malty with a hint of dryness in a nutty finish.

JDW Fest. Clear amber beer, little white head. Dryish palate. Unusual flavour! There is a milky nutty sweetness going on that reminds me of spirit made in Europe somewhere - can’t put my finger on it! A little floral hop as well before the dry finish. Funky flavour, overdry palate.

imdownthepub (13389) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 14, 2011
Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Amber with whisp of head. Very sweet and softly fruity, overripe plums came to mind. The body was lifeless, and this had only just gone on, flat, bready. Not particularly good.

wheresthepath (2139) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - APR 13, 2011
[Cask at Monk’s Retreat (JDW), Reading] Amber, slight white head. Sweet caramel at first. Soft, comforting mouthfeel in the middle, and a finish like chewing on a lump of wood. Not a lot to this one, but pleasant enough.

DruncanVeasey (8012) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - APR 12, 2011
The Felix, Nuneaton. Brassy with a thin, draping slick . Mushy cherry skin and rotting hay aroma. Just a booze-sodden, park bench mush of cherry and warm tupperware. Late cream and vanilla. Foreign muck made worse by Marston’s; struggled with half a third.

DanielBrown (4381) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 10, 2011
Hand pulled at the Briar Rose, Birmingham. Amberish, with a very sticky and frothy white roof, which laced and persisted throughout. Plain English hops taste, with paper and some gravy on the finish, which is a bit sour with some apple. It’s OK.

dynamiteninja (1827) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - APR 7, 2011
Cask. The High Cross (JDW), Leicester. Hops, grass. No head, gold body. Bitter with a long bitter finish.

berkshirejohn (6067) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - APR 5, 2011
Cask at the Claude de Vall (JDW), Camberley. Hazy amber with a ring of white head that laces the glass nicely; grainy aroma with a touch of apple; the taste is predominantly of caramel malts, but there are also some sour apple notes; before a fruity finish with some pleasantly spicy hops. Very drinkable.

Cask, The Francis Newton, Sheffield, UK. Deep golden, frothy head. Spiced caramel and apple aroma, bitter flavour with apple and pepper on the finish.
