jackl (7063) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 17, 2012
Cask @ The Kingston Arms, Cambridge. Pours a glorious light amber color with a small, tight creamy white head. This looks about as attractive as a bitter can be. The nose is mildly floral hops, some toffee and spun sugar. The tastee is red berries, bouncy toffee and earthy twig. Just a bit of floral hoppy bitterness on the dry finish. Simple flavors, but well integrated. Overall, pretty nice.

Cask at The Cambridge Blue, Cambridge 15.02.12 Amber in colour with a lively white head, in fact this looks excellent. Decently hoppy but with a slight caramel undertow. Donít get the floral characteristics but it isnít a bad beer at all. A6 A5 T7 P4 Ov13 3.5

BeerViking (4140) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 19, 2011
Cask at the Magpie && Crown, dark copper with a big fluffy cream head and aromas of peppery hops and malt. Crisp and hoppy with a good balancing malt chewiness, and a dry peppery finish. Very more-ish.

downender (7925) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 12, 2009
Cask-conditioned at the Victoria, Clifton, Bristol 12/07/09. Amber with a moderate white head. Orange fruit aroma with some floral hops. Flavour was a head on collision between some pleasant marmalade malts and roasted malts, which verged on being smokey. Initially this was a train wreck, but my palate adjusted and the pint tasted better the more that was drunk. Still strange though.

DruncanVeasey (8012) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAY 8, 2009
Cask handpull at the Fuggles Cafe (brewtap), Bedlington, Northumberland. Burnished amber with a creamy white lid. Faint leafy hop, orange citrus and white grape aroma. Creamy and sweet with a gelatinous soft orange and grapey tang hinting at NZ hops. Lemon and lime jelly, long sweet retronasal digestives and vanlla. Hardly any carbonation. Nice.
