imdownthepub (10124) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 30, 2011
Cask conditioned at The Grapes, Oxford. Gold with white head. There was a big, initial cigarette ash flavour right at the start leading to a long dry bitterness. Some fruits, but indistinct. Not in great nick.

Leighton (10675) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 21, 2011
Cask at The Cleveland Arms, London. Pours clear, rich gold with a medium, creamy white head. (TLC’s ’No Scrubs’ sets the mood.) Aroma is crisp grains, herbal hops, some dark sugar. Flavor is very nice, sweet toast, hints of berry jam, mild earth, hints of grapes and leaves. Light to medium bodied with fine carbonation. Finish has a nice balance, with leafy bitters, subtle ripe citrus, toast, some burnt sugar. A solid beer this.

Oakes (12352) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 6, 2010
@ Raven, Bath. Golden amber with slight haze. Very hoppy-spicy aroma. Extra spicy and dry beer, now showing much fruit if at all but instead an excellent spic character. Very hoppy.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - SEP 1, 2010
Cask @ The Raven, Bath. Bright copper. Scattered lacing. Small but lasting head. Fresh hoppy aroma. Lovely floral notes. Supremely quaffable. Excellent floral notes are coupled with delightfully fruity malts, finishing toasty, crisp, and balanced. Very long flavor journey. Am I being too generous in the rating? Perhaps, perhaps not.

Cask-conditioned at the Salutation, Ham Green, Gloucestershire 20/7/10. Amber coloured with a moderate white head. Aroma of soft, berry fruit, grassy hops and a touch of malt sweetness. Flavour had more fruitiness, with a hint of raspberry and citrus hop leading to a bitter finish. Good.

Amber colour with a thin white head. Fruity, grainy malt, lots of tea, even more apple. Sound good? It isn’t.
