hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 28, 2010
Cask at Wellington Arms, Bedford. Gold with a small white head. Malt aroma with a suggestion of pineapple. Bready, even doughy, malt taste with a little sourness and a mid bitter finish. Good golden from a very sound brewery.

biggles231 (14) - Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 17, 2009
Well balanced, good looking, hops predominate without ever becoming too assertive. Apricots and fruit on the nose, and unusually for this gravity a lasting and complex finish.

Cask Handpump at the Babington Arms JDW, Derby 15/08/2007 Some wheat aroma. Small white head. Clear golden coloured smooth on the palate and slightly citrus flavoured with some dryness in a crisp and bitter finish.

bacchanalia (146) - milton, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JUN 8, 2009
From the cask, a great session beer from the consistently excellent Milton brewery. On the nose light citrus & whopping barley. A lovely fresh pale start, leads to a full bitter finish with loads of fresh, rich barley on the finish. An excellent length on the finish for a beer of this strength.

ladnewton (1325) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 4, 2009
CASK @ Oakdale Arms, Harringay London N4, on 3rd June 2009. Delicious refreshing session ale with a small diminishing white head, generous hoppy notes and fruity aroma, some nuttiness in the initial kick, and delicately hoppy dry finish. A smooth, slightly saline mouthfeel - this pint was Dionysus at its best.

UPDATED: FEB 19, 2009 Cask @ Pembury Tavern, Hackney Straw coloured. Crystal clear with a tight white head. Apricot, peach and mango aromas, attractive hop burst on the tongue, lasting bitterness and a surprisingly strong finish for the ABV. Good.

fiulijn (13533) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 10, 2009
<i>Cask Conditioned at The Pembury Tavern, London</i>
Hazy blond color. Light malty aroma, with very light fruity hops. Fair malt and toffee flavor, good bitterness (lightly resinous), but missing some punch, the flavor seems <i>flat</i>.
