Miksu (4938) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - NOV 13, 2011
Cask at Market Porter, London. Copper to amber color. Sweet nutty malt aroma and flavor with grain husks, almonds and salty minerals. Not bad, but somehow this one has slightly industrial feel.

BeerViking (2310) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 5, 2011
Cask at the Michael Balcon JDW Ealing, malty faintly sour nose, then a biscuit and yellow fruit body with hop notes. Decent and drinkable, but uninspiring.

blankboy (5970) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 1, 2011
Cask at The Red Lion, Newborough, Burton-On-Trent. Pours a clear gold with a spare lasting white head. Aroma is grainy along with light floral hops, fruit and caramel malt. Mild hoppy flavour along with caramel malt -- easy to drink but not very exciting. Simple but good.

maeib (8611) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - AUG 13, 2011
Cask conditioned handpump Cordwainer Northampton. A golden beer with off-white bits of head. A yeasty beer with apply notes in the mouth. The pumpclip says it’s dry hopped but these hops didn’t make my half pint. There is a bit of Burton snatch sulphur in the nose which is OK. Otherwise a standard yeasty bitter.
