Mungo (2471) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - APR 26, 2007
Cask conditioned @ Giddy Bridge (JDW), Soton. Similar condition to the Bath SPA I had before but this withstood it slightly better. Fruity malt and earthy hop combination. Full mouthfeel and a little too sweet but with enough bitterness to keep it drinkable.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - APR 19, 2007
Cask conditioned - gravity dispense - Wig and Pen Northampton. A golden coloured beer with a thin aroma, just at little malty charcter. The taste is too sweet by half, with a sticky sickly feel. A bit sherberty. Disappointing.
