hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 21, 2010
Cask, gravity, at Pig’s B’ear Festival ’10 at The Pig ’n’ Falcon, St Neots, Cambridgeshire. Dark amber. Sour fruits in the aroma as well as malt. Thick, spicy rounded malt taste, full of hiddenh depths: fruit pastilles, leather, redcurrant. Mid bitter finish. You could analyse this too much.

DanielBrown (3626) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 7, 2006
Hand pulled at the Criterion, Leicester. Really hardcore hops. Varnished finish, lasting and tart. The hop is sweet to start with, with a double IPA style flavour. Chestnut colour. Challenging and full.

DonMagi (5596) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 19, 2008
UPDATED: MAR 20, 2009 Cask in the boat in peterborough just next to the festival. Alround rating: Fruity yeastyness, appley, alcoholic peppery notes, spicey toffeeness. RERATE: Cask in the new crown. Alround rating: aroma is soo fruity, like plums and pears, lychee and orange. Taste is fuller and fruityness is key. Alround a great beer that was very unexpectitly good.

Ethereal (2410) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAR 23, 2009
Cask at the New Crown (JDW) in Southgate. Thanks Magicdave! Dark amber. Great malty caramel flavour. Rich, full bodied yet very drinkable. A great example of a strong ale.

downender (5912) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 16, 2009
Cask-conditioned at the Commercial Rooms (JDW), Bristol 16/09/09. Murky brown colour wih a decent off-white head. Big, hoppy aroma with plenty of fruit and some earthiness. Fairly easy drinking despite the strength and multitude of flavours - sweet doughy malts, red fruit, citrus hops and a long, bitter finish. Full of character and great stuff.

chriso (7344) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 11, 2007
Cask (gravity dispense), White Cliffs Best Festival. Attractive bronzed copper colour. Big Pacific North-West hop aroma - flowery and aromatic. Powerful grapefruit flavour with some tropical fruit notes. There’s some malt providing and almost chocolate touch in the background. Sharp, resinous hop finish, tending towards astringent. Could easily be mistaken for an American beer and there are not too many British beers you could say that about. Assured and impressive.
