Osprey87 (1958) - WALES - FEB 2, 2014
Cask at the Black Dog Vauxhall. Short review at work do. Rugby-themed name for the 6 Nations. Red orange, still, bubbly beige head. Smell - malty caramel. Body is medium, carbonation low. Taste - malty, some ash and toffee. There is a wateriness about it but it’s balanced and drinkable. Better than expected.

SarkyNorthener (2249) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 13, 2013
Cask@GeorgeWallis, wolverhampton. Looks good. Deep amber with thick creamy head. Then wow, I didn’t think anything that looks this good can be so tastless. Very dull indeed.

BlackHaddock (4009) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 13, 2012
21th Feb 2012: Hand pulled pint in ‘The Raven’ Wellington, Shropshire. Good looking brew: clear amber/copper body the head a thick cream coloured affair. Not a lot going on in the nose: sweet, candy fruits but nothing beery. Bland and boring: malted biscuits with not much else in the taste. A little on the thin side too, the looks gave the impression of a rich, deep flavoured brew, this was misleading to say the least.

berkshirejohn (4645) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 29, 2012
Cask at the Tilly Shilling (JDW), Farnborough. Copper with a thin cream head; sulphorous aroma; boring sweet biscuity malt flavour; then a biscuity finish with some shortlasting hops. A boringly ordinary beer.

wimpyjoe (4339) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 23, 2012
Next to no aroma, and as bland and tasteless as you like. Poor effort from Marstons.

harrisoni (14015) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 13, 2012
Cask handpull at County Hotel JDW Ashford. Deep gold amber colour. Lasting cream head. Wow what a dull bitter some tingle on tongue on end. Not much aroma not much flavour, vague Burton snatch i guess. Just watery and not great.
