Cask, handpump at The Hop Pole, Aylesbury, Bucks, 20.10.10 Pours conker brown with off-white head, great clarity. The aroma is fruity & toffee as is the taste, some hoppiness shows, good malty body, likeable. A7 A5 T6 P3 Ov13 3.4

DruncanVeasey (8012) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - FEB 23, 2009
Cask, The Lincolnshire Poacher, Nottingham. Lovely sweaty alpha resins in the nose, leafy chlorophyll and grapefruit. Fresh and humming. Tawny red amber draped with beige and thick with condition. US hops all over it, no holds barred or expense spared. Resiny but balanced beautifully by the supporting malts. Dusting of coffee, lick of the Marmite knife. Vikings Return springs to mind. Top-drawer, pungently hopped sessions and very nearly my ceremonial 2000th rate it was that good.

larsga (7293) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 18, 2009
Medium creamy light beige head. Slightly hazy deep red body. Fruity cedar wood and spices aroma with dusty toffee notes. Dry-sweetish roasty dried fruit taste. Soft, mild mouthfeel. Mid-bodied. Dry wooden spicy aftertaste. Very nice. (0.25l cask, The Carpenter’s Arms, Marble Arch, London.)

Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - DEC 18, 2007
Cask, Far From The Madding Crowd. Caramel brown, light tan head. Caramel, musk, and mint aroma. Mint and chocolate flavor, a bit of chalk. Some of the sherry sweet notes that make me think this is a little past its prime.

Cask handpump at the Swan in the Rushes, loughborough. Dark red/brown coloured with a slim white head. Malty aroma. Malty flavour with some late light bitterness. Thinish mouthfeel. OK.

UPDATED: FEB 23, 2014 Cask conditioned - handpump - Lincolnshire Poacher Nottingham. A nut brown coloured beer with a creamy head. The aroma is very hoppy with orange notes. The taste is also hoppy and fruity - clearly the Mount Hood are doing their job. It is a little chewy but is fresh and tasty. Nice stuff.Score 3.6
Subsequent ratings scored 2.3 and 3.6. Average becomes 3.2

Hbie (133) - Essex, ENGLAND - NOV 15, 2004
Cask at the Willoughby Arms, Little Bytham, where the brewery is. Dark red bitter with white head that lasts. A good solid beer malty but the bitterness cut through quite aggressively. Fairly good but could be better balanced.

RichardGretton (4639) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 27, 2004
Dark beer with a light frothy head. The aroma is malty and the flavour is like a dark malty beer with a dry finish. Overall an average beer.

Newby Wyke has a thing about Squalls! This is deep ruby red in colour with a dry malty berry fruit aroma. Flavours are winter fruits that become very dry. Quite lip smacking.
