Niall73 (1774) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 15, 2014
Cask at JDW, Balham. Pours a light amber gold with a slightly off white head. Light maltiness in the aroma, not much else. Medium body, light carbonation. Quite creamy and cakey malty, it's sweet with caramel and a little dark fruit and ripe pear. Nice enough. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

0,5 in cask @ St. Urho’s. Pours clear amber with a low soapy head. Aroma is malts. Flavor is fruity malts with some hops and nuts. Low carbonation even for a real ale. Decent.

gegwilson (1156) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2014
Cask in the Swatter’s Carr, Middlesbrough. An amber ale with a white head. Quite fruity with some medicine notes. Not quite how I remember it from previous times. OK but nothing more.

Beese (1771) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 24, 2014
Cask at the Moon Under Water (JDW), Watford. Poured a clear, deep golden colour, with a dense white head and excellent lacing. Interesting aroma of berries, flowery hop and cloves. Initial flavours of peppery hop, caramel, biscuit and grass. Finish was hop resin, straw and lingering spice. A rather unique brew; still good.

Cask at Cloisters. Pours clear dark gold, thick foamy white head. Aromas of citrus and caramel. Taste is more of the same. Pretty straightforward, but good.
