sm89walt (1716) - Northern Beaches, Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAY 1, 2011
Cask - The Glass House (JDW), Norwich. A thick, firm & creamy white head with a good uniform lacing & a clear golden orange body. Zesty lemon and floral hop aromas with some very mild sulphur notes coming through. Crisp citrus flavour profile with some sweeter, juicy hop fruit tones. Firm mouthfeel, light to medium body with a lingering citric hop bitterness. A pretty good pale bitter.

bobinlondon (1250) - Harrow, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 24, 2010
Hand pulled cask at the Moon and Sixpence (JDW) Hatch End. Amber with a white head. Watery malt base with a nutty edge. Slightly metalic hop profile that dies away quickly. The pint was in great condition but the beer is at best rather boring.

Fin (7040) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 28, 2010
Cask, handpump at The Cambridge Blue 27-03-10 Pours gold, in fact maybe more light amber, good clarity with a thin white head. Some citrus and caramel combine along with a little tobacco possibly? Its a fine enough beer and quite enjoyable but not as god as the Brass Monkey-Son of Silverback which really was something. A6 A5 F7 P3 Ov13 3.4

Bullit (3859) - Burgos, SPAIN - MAR 22, 2010
Cask @ 2nd Larbert Beer Festival. Clear golden colour, some white bubbles. Aroma of vegetables, slight hoppy. Flavour of biscuit malts, vegetables. Slightly sour, fairly bitter.

ladnewton (1325) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 17, 2010
Cask at the Cask Pub & Kitchen on 16th March 2010. Gold with small white head. Biscuit malt with a mainly malty kick and overtone. Notes of grassy hop briefly penetrate. Becomes bitter with a strongly bitter finish noted particularly in the back of the mouth. This beer certainly grew on me during the tasting!

reakt (950) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 23, 2008
Cask @ The Black Bull, Whitechapel, labeled Barfly Special. Clear gold with a thin white head. Metallic hops, apple, malt and an odd white grape hint. Smelled kinda like pee which made me hesitant to drink it. Bitter and very soapy hops at first overpowered by a malt and butterscotch finish. The flavours seem to work against rather than compliment each other, not a fan.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 28, 2007
Cask at Wellington Arms, Bedford. Dark gold with a small white head. Fruit and hop aroma. Buttery malt taste: rather good. Some bitterness.

imdownthepub (9672) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 18, 2007
Cask conditioned at The falkland Arms, Gt Tew, Oxon. Gold colour with white head. A very decent pint this, light and bright with a particularly hoppy dryness, a little buttery on the tongue, fruity grapefruit and a long dry finish. I enjoyed this in a particularly pleasant pub.
