Scotland: JDW Beer fest. I was not a big fan of this brew. It was poorly balanced.

Clear gold beer, good white head. Soft and creamy palate. Light and easy going. Very well balanced light tasting beer. A genuine surprise!

imdownthepub (10022) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 7, 2010
Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Amber to gold with slight white head. The sulphery nose survived the Spoons treatment, but little else did, a bit of a malty mish mash, slightly sweet, grainy. Little in the finish, moved on.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 5, 2009
A Mes rate. Cask handpull at Baker Street ’Sporks.
Clean dark gold with a good, lasting White head and reasonable condition. Creamy malt with a faint hint of peat and vanilla. Pleasant bready finish with some late bitterness. Better than I expected but still a rather poor effort.

bobinlondon (1256) - Harrow, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 22, 2009
Handpulled cask at JDW Watford. Amber with a thin white head. Almost no sulphur surprisingly. Dry dull malts and not too many hops. What’s the point of this???

leaparsons (7991) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 26, 2009
Cask, Highcross, Leicester. Clear orange and gold with a small head. Aromas are caramel with whisky grain malts. Some citrus with hints of sulphur. Flavours are sweet grain and citrus with tea. Decent grapefruit bitterness with some whisky character. Better than the bottled version.

DonMagi (5596) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 26, 2009
Cask in the new crown. Alround rating: Grainy cardboard malt character, some cheap lager malts too, typical minerally marstons, but lacking the sulphur, im struggling to find much hops.

cgarvieuk (14075) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 18, 2009
Cask at Counting house Dundee (JDW) in ’Spoons Real Ale Festival, April ’09 ... amber ... light fruit little lemon nose ... melloe fruit sweet hop ... little toffeee ... decent enough.

jammin7jg (139) - Burnage, Manchester, Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2007
[CASK: The Salisbury Ale House, Manchester 23/09/06, BOTTLED: 07/02/07] OK tasting but not exciting enough for my taste. Marstons usually makes me want to expect more. Overall a reasonable ale but with no passion to be anything other than ordinary. Tasted much better from a bottle - however this could have been due to the conditioning in the pub!

Gr0ve (2128) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 12, 2006
1/2 pint cask, Mathers, Edinburgh. Light golden colour and a small white head. Nutty, rich caramel aroma. Much of the same characters shine through in the flavour as well. Served quite warm. Lots of malts, even some roasted ones. The roastedness is well-balanced by the hops used in the beer. Not much hops in the beginning, but they kick in with a nice crisp drying feeling towards the end. Sour apples in the nose.
