DonMagi (5596) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 18, 2009
Bottle in the rake. Alround rating: Lightly tart and sulphurous, earthy, over carbonated, marmalade and ever some strawberry jam, im guessing this was past its best but the tartness made it fairly drinkable.

chriso (7347) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 23, 2010
Cask at the Pembury Tavern, November 2009. Copper colour. Initially rather sweet. Somewhat sweaty, moist malt aroma. Good from tangy hops come through on the palate eventually, leading in to a lingering, moderately bitter aftertaste. Ends up pretty decent but a shame the hops didn’t show up a bit sooner.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 1, 2010
Cask. Aroma is sweet, almost cola-like with some good malt as well,copper, small toffee head, plenty of lace. Flavour is apples, malt, woody and nutty too. Light bodied, balanced, nice level of bitterness, very dry. A nice session.

Bullit (3961) - Burgos, SPAIN - APR 16, 2010
Cask @ Counting House, JDW. Dark copper colour, off-white head. Aroma of bready malts, some hops. Flavour of caramel malts, hint of hops. Slightly bitter and dry. Average.

DJMonarch (9158) - Northwich, Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAY 24, 2010
Cask Handpump at the Bankers Draft JDW, Sheffield 24/04/2010 Floral bready aroma. Bronze coloured a little rich on the palate and dry with a bitter and slightly earthy finish.

downender (6127) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - APR 11, 2010
Cask-conditioned at the Commercial Rooms (JDW), Bristol 11/04/10. Dark amber in colour with an off-white head. Bready malts, a touch of sweetness, and brooding, lengthy bitter finish. Not my kind of beer.

madmitch76 (14285) - , Essex, ENGLAND - MAY 7, 2012
16th September 2009
Clear amber brown beer. Light cream coloured head. Softish light palate. Nicely balanced soft malt and reasonable hop presence. A decent bitter but doesn’t quite escape the shackles of English Bitter Blandness syndrome!

2.6
   AROMA 3/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 3/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 14/20
SilkTork (5156) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 24, 2010
JDW Spring Fest 2010, Rochester. Best bitter with crystal malt giving an autumnal twang - slightly roasty, slightly twiggy and boggy. Crystal malt can be an awkward malt - used well it adds sweetness and some slight roasty chocolate notes, adding interest and flavour to a beer. Used too much and the beers taste damp and ugly and a little tannic and dry. This is more in the later camp.

berkshirejohn (4378) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - APR 23, 2010
Cask, gravity dispense, at the Back of Beyond (JDW), Reading. Reddish copper with no head; fruity aroma; acidic sour fruit flavour; with a tart finish. Unpleasant.

jackl (4291) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JUN 18, 2013
Cask @ JDW Willow Walk. Amber with a small head. Toffee, bread, a bit of fart on the nose. Little else. Not a great start. The taste is black tea, more caramel. Some twig. A touch of acidic red apple skin. Somewhat papery. Light body, soft carbonation. Overall, entirely uninspiring.
