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.

haddonsman (1234) - Derby, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - AUG 23, 2005
Cask conditioned and handpulled at the Wellington, Birmingham. Perfumed hit at the start that segues to a sweet finish, one of those beers that seems to slip down with no struggle.

DanielBrown (4329) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 12, 2004
Hand pulled at The Anchor, Birmingham. Apple brown/yellow colour, with a slightly dry aroma. Big fluffy head and thick lacing. A warm Autumnal beer, that has a hoppy taste to begin, moving to some maltiness. Balanced, quite light, with a tasty dry finish. Middle range product, which tends to slight wateriness.
