fonefan (38685) - VestJylland, DENMARK - AUG 30, 2010

Cask (handpump) @ NWAF 10, National Winter Ales Festival, The Venue, Sheridan Suite, Manchester, England.

Clear medium orange amber color with a small to average, fizzy, virtually none lacing, fully diminishing, off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, overripped apple. Flavor is moderate sweet and light light bitter with a average to long duration. Body is medium, texture is oily to watery, carbonation is flat. [20100120]

Papsoe (25074) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 22, 2010
Cask. Clear amber golden with a small off-white head. Nutty nose. Light body, sweetish caramel and nuts. Hardly any bitterness. Very quaffable but also very unspectacular. 200110

sm89walt (1799) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JAN 2, 2010
Cask - The White Lion, Norwich. Dark copper with a one finger white head. Some good sweet malts on the nose: bit of biscuit, some caramel. Sweet, quite creamy flavours with some citrusy notes. Quite a soft palate texture, a light carbonation and a medium length finish.

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - DEC 9, 2009
Cask conditioned handpump Wootton WMC. A copper coloured beer with a little off-white coloured head. A biscuity and crackerbread accented aroma with mostly malts which carry through to the mouth. On the sweet side. A pretty decent quaffing ale.

imdownthepub (11294) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 11, 2009
Cask conditioned at The Coalheavers, Peterborough. Dark amber with white head. Good deep roasty bitter, plenty of fresh tasting malt, some bittersweetness and a touch fruity. A good well balanced bitter.

DruncanVeasey (7633) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - AUG 31, 2009
UPDATED: NOV 9, 2010 1)Cask gravity, The Cock, Hemingsford Grey. Pops MacDrunkeasy just wouldn’t believe I’d stumbled innocently on their small but very tasteful little festival. Anyway, headless tawny with buttered fresh orange citrus wafts. Peardrop, caramel, vanilla, egg custard spiciness and linger. Fresh and lovely, despite the festival treatment. 2) Cask handpull, The Green Dragon, Lincoln. Bronze with white skim. Lemony aroma with an undercurrent of tropical fruit; almond softness, fresh honeycomb malt, Wotsit hints, vanilla linger. Good. 636313.

ladnewton (1598) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 4, 2009
Cask at the Oakdale Arms, London N4 yesterday. A moderately flavoursome amber bitter, with malt being the salient feature. Moderate biscuity malt aromas on the nose, quite rich in malt flavours on the main kick, with a slightly (but not overly) sweet lingering finish when the drinker pauses between sips. Clear, with a thin, insubstantial diminishing head, but a weighty body. A pleasant drink.

Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JAN 1, 2009
Cask at the Eastbourne Beer Festival, 11th Oct 2008. Deep tawny amber with varied malts on the nose. Good weight and overall an enjoyable pint.

Cask in the Coalheavers Arms. Alround rating: Richer malts than expected, on the sweeter side of balanced, perhaps lacking in condition, but like alright.
