fonefan (34777) - VestJylland, DENMARK - APR 6, 2011

Cask (handpump) @ The Queens Head, Parsonage Lane, Icklesham, Winchelsea, England TN36 4BL.

Clear medium yellow orange color with a small, frothy, fair lacing, mostly diminishing, off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, toasted, caramel, old fruit, light to moderate hoppy. Flavor is moderate to light light heavy sweet and bitter with a average to long duration. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft to flat. [20100807]

bobinlondon (1256) - Harrow, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 12, 2010
Hand pulled cask at The Moon on the Hill (JDW) Harrow. Gold with a white head. Refreshing session bitter with grassy hops and fruity malt. Somewhat paler than pre retirement descriptions seem to suggest. Decent.

maeib (8664) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JUN 21, 2008
Cask conditioned - handpump - Malt Shovel, Northampton. A copper coloured beer with a white head. The aroma is slightly hoppy and there is light fruit in the mouth. Pretty ordinary and dull.

Cask in the tennents bar. Aroma is toffee caramel malts, raw bittering hop. Taste is similar quite grassy and floral from the hops.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 9, 2008
UPDATED: JUL 29, 2010 Cask at Wellington Arms, Bedford. Copper amber. Malt aroma with a bit of cardboard. Slightly watery middle, though I think there’s some sweet malt. Quite a sharp hoppy finish, but it’s only fair. 29.7.10 Same location. Dusty malt aroma with a hint of grapefruit. Plastic malt taste. Mid bitter finish. I deplore the pumpclip illustration of a full-breasted fox dressed as a prostitute, leaning on a lampost and smoking a cigarette. Nethergate’s marketing team, responsible for the ’Azza-’ series, has plumbed a new low in bad taste. Rating: 5,4,5,4,10:2.8

Cask conditioned at the Wenlock Arms, London. </br> Amber with a reddish hue. Good depth in bitterness that is smooth and lovely. Easy drinking and satisfying. Many thanks to Dave (the cellarman) who bought this one for me.
