Cask (handpump) at the Cask Pub & Kitchen on 17 January 2011 - meet the brewer night, with 10 Mighty Oak beers on tap. Thought I’d rated this before so notes rather sketchy. Bright copper. Good condition. A solid best bitter with a decent balance of caramel & berry fruit tinged malt and spicy hops. Just a touch of citrus. Moderate bitterness. No complaints here but I generally prefer my session beers to be a bit more hop driven.

Warning! Early amateur rating! Low carbonation. Fruity start. Lingering bitter finish. Okay.

ladnewton (1413) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 28, 2010
Cask at the CASK Pub & Kitchen on 28th July 2010. Crystal clear copper with thin offwhite head of foam offering full lacing. Sweet, malty aroma; caramel and berry fruits in the kick alongside some bitterness, but the meeting of the two is not harmonious. Medium to short bittersweet finish, although this lengthens and becomes drier late on. Textured, light mouthfeel.

harrisoni (13704) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 6, 2008
Cask gravity at Cambridge BF 08. Copper with thin beige head. Good condition. Aroma of toffee. A little biscuity in mouth, more toffee in swallow and then a dryish herbyish hop finish. Decent best bitter, very drinkable, could see me doing a session on it. Nothing flash, not overly mlaty. Does everything well.

bhensonb (11056) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 23, 2008
Cask at the Wenlock. Light floral aroma. Amber color with a lacing white head. Floral and fruity over caramel malts. Finishes nicely bitter in a floral way. Good, if not the best.

Aug 07 Cask conditioned @ Yorkshire Terrier, York. Orangey herbal hop flavours. Pleasantly malty body and tangy hop bitterness lasts well.
