fonefan (36036) - VestJylland, DENMARK - MAR 24, 2013

Cask (gravity) @ The 18th Reading Beer and Cider Festival 2012, Reading, Berkshire England.

Clear medium yellow orange colour with a small to average, frothy, fair lacing, mostly diminishing, off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, toasted, caramel, fruity. Flavor is moderate sweet and light moderate bitter with a average to long duration. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft to flat. IMO. a bit borring ! [20120503]

stravale (2280) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - FEB 7, 2013
Cask @ Haymarket, Edinburgh [050213]
Pale golden, clear thin dense white head. Aroma - slighly odd medicinal note, bit of a herbal hop. Taste of pale malts, soft spicy hops, slight herbal note, soft sweet pale fruits, dab of fusty yeast
Palate - thin to medium body, but oily, bitterish bit biscuity finish, bit yeasty, odd scorched note, little dry
Overall - This came across as rather odd - very average - not a fan of this

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JAN 5, 2013
Cask conditioned handpump Goose On Two Streets Northampton 02/01/13. A slightly hazy light golden coloured beer with a bright white head and lace. Restrained grassy hoppy nose. Pleasant hoppiness in the mouth. Some citrus and grass and light fruits. Pleasant enough.

AshtonMcCobb (2945) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 2, 2013
On cask @ Hawes Inn, South Queensferry. Pours golden with some haze and a decent head. The nose is of honey and cornflakes with a slightly unpleasant, dare I say it, sulphurous note, in there too. The taste is much more of citrus but thereís still a cornflake note and as well, the hint of sulphur is still lurking. The palate is medium bodied with a creamy/tangy texture and a dry, though not very fresh finish - itís slightly malty astringent rather than fresh and hoppy. Overall, this wasnít as good as Iíd hoped and Iím not sure it was in the condition that best showed it.

imdownthepub (10662) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 16, 2012
Cask conditioned at The Easington, Banbury. Gold towards brown with slight white head. Thinnish, grainy, malty beer with a tinned peach type fruity note to follow. Itís ok.

foxo82 (712) - Bromsgrove (via Leicester), Staffordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 4, 2012
Cask at The Cross Keys, Nottingham. Good amber brown body with a decent, long lasting head. Faint aroma. Yeasty mouthfeel, bitter and dry but well balanced. Perhaps served too cold. Lacking depth but smooth mouthfeel. Not bad.
