Rune (11120) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 14, 2015
Cask, half pint at Crosse Keys (JDW), shared with Finn. Bubbly, off-white head. Clear golden-brown body. Modest aroma of fruit caramel. Restrained flavour of caramel and leafy hops. Bittersweet endnotes. Okay, rather tasteless though (London 30.11.2015).

Desverger (8293) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 30, 2015
Cask@Crosse Keys JDW, London - golden pour with white head. Toasty malty and very subdued citrus fruity aroma and taste, some twiggy herbal and grassy hoppy action, abit bland all be told. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The_Osprey (6348) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 29, 2015
Cask at Victoria Station ’spoons. Orange, totally clear and still, small scummy white head, full lacing. Aroma is ... like sniffing water, some sulphur later on. Body is medium, tingly carbonation, smooth. High carb for cask. Taste is pleasant biscuity malt, lager, German hops, cardboard, nice musty notes. Interesting beer. Comes across like a cask lager.

Hippoman (646) - Durham, ENGLAND - NOV 27, 2015
Cask at The Water House (JDW), Durham, £2.05/pint. Golden copper pour with a large, smooth, white head. There’s basement aromas and light grains in the nose. The taste is reasonably well balanced, erring towards the sweet side of the spectrum with biscuit and caramel malt notes. A little dull but okay.

Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Hazy gold with no head. Dispensed with little condition, quite flat, the flavours are also quite flat and cereal malty, musty fruit. Not great.
