haddonsman (1234) - Derby, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - AUG 12, 2005
Handpulled at Derby Beer Festival. Malty start, hoppy finish, good combo gold. Not in the Bishops Farewell league but still a tidy drink.

Casked. Golden, a bit hazy colour, small foamy head. Fruitish sweet aroma with malty hints. Fruity sweet flavour with a bit hoppy finish. Smooth palate. A bit sticky palate afterwards.

tipsytoad (85) - JERSEY - JUL 28, 2004
cask at the old moot hall, nottingham.. a good hoppy aroma greets you in this oakham beer, in the vein of bishops farewell and JHB. hoppy and citrussy but with a good malt character which differenciates it from bishops farewell.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 29, 2004
Cask@Catford Beer festival. Aromatic hops in the nose, some raw-ish malt. Bittering grapefruit and lemon rind on the tongue, nice and dry, bitter finish, pretty tasty.

SilkTork (5187) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 28, 2004
UPDATED: JUN 29, 2006 June, 2004Catford Fest. Pump. Amber, medium palate beer which holds the line between a Gold and a Premium. Pale malt aroma. Sweet fruit up front quickly balanced by the dry palate. Ghostly toffee, hint of wheat spice. Interesting multi-faceted brew. [3.5]
June, 2006 Catford Beer Fest. White lilly. Wild with modern hops and a soft delicious malt. Nice one. [3.2]

chriso (7347) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 21, 2004
Gold colour. Aromatic hops and a touch of sweet malt on the nose. The flavour starts fruity and noticeably sweet, but hops kick in and it finishes crisp and dry. Good balance. Very nice. A good thirst quencher with more about it than most. Cask (handpump), Catford Beer Festival.

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - MAY 28, 2004
Cask Conditioned, at the Brewery Tap, Peterborough.
Not to be taken lightly this beer can hurt you. Golden with thin lacy head. Bitter sulphurous aroma only at the end of the nose. Compared to there other beers I think you can get a lot more flavour for your ABV buck with a JHB or even a Bishops Farwell. Nice though.

leaparsons (8019) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 10, 2003
Compared to JHB this is quite a boozy number. Having said that, this is quite a different beer - darker and more malty, with fruit and toffee. Still refreshing though and pretty strong for a summer quaffer (and a workday lunchtime!)
