jjsint (2371) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JUN 13, 2016
Gravity cask at the Last Heretic, Burton-on-Trent. Mid-gold, flat with a barely discernible white ring of head. Slightly juicy hoppy scent, with a suggestion of hay. Sweet fruity taste with more bitterness in the finish. Thin to medium body with lingering orange peel in the aftertaste. Decent but could be so much better with some added ’oomph’.

BlackHaddock (6375) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2016
Cask pint in The Pheasant, Wellington Shropshire. Not a lot going on in this fairly bland beer. Clear golden pour with a full white head. Boring blend of hops and light malts with neither showing any real dominance or character. Disappointing.

ladnewton (1811) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 18, 2014
Cask at Craft Beer Co, Clerkenwell on 1st August 2014. Hazy gold with a thinning off-white film and scant lacing. Inviting hoppy, yeasty aroma. Bitter hoppiness in-mouth with a solid, satisfyingly bitter finish that intensifies, seemingly with each sip. Fair amount of body and engaging mouthfeel.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - OCT 16, 2013
Cask conditioned handpump Locomotive Wellingborough 11/ A golden beer with a white bubbly head. Some decent enough citricity from the hops but there’s a little diacetyl. A little flowery and a touch of biscuit. Served warmer than desired. Acceptable only.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 19, 2012
On cask at the Ely Winter Beer Festival, 2012. Pours a golden colour with a thin white head. Aroma of caramel, yeast and alcohol. Similar flavours with mild carbonation, an oily mouth feel and a dry finish. Lingering caramel. OK.
