imdownthepub (10626) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 5, 2012
Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Amber with white head. Lots of toffee, caramel notes, some bitterness along with a salty, sulphery note. Not great.

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JUN 5, 2012
Cask conditioned handpump Post & Telegraph Brighton 23/05/12. A copper to amber coloured beer with an off-white pool of head. A bit sulphuric and yeasty. No obvious hop note. Really dull and not befitting of any kind of fuss.

On cask at The Alexander Graham Bell. Pours a dark golden colour with a fair white head. Aroma of alcohol, lemon, caramel and yeast. Similar flavours with mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. Fairly bitter and dry to finish.
