hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 2, 2007
Cask at ’Spoons Festival, Milton Keynes. Dark gold. Sweet caramel malt aroma. Pleasant biscuity, buttery flavour and mid bitter finish. Full of taste for its ABV; an excellent sessioner.

harrisoni (14009) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 27, 2006
Cask handpull at Fly in the Loaf, Liverpool. Copper colour with creamy head. Seem to use a tight sprinkler. Yeasty session bitter with goodish hop finish. Bit metallic. Even still tasty session beer. Bit thin around the edges but core yeast/caramel/hop falvours hold together well. A bitter that is bitter

RoyceH (1196) - Hesperange, LUXEMBOURG - SEP 6, 2005
Direct from the brewery, and on tap at The Waterfall, Glen Maye. Nice hoppy beer, looks a nice ruby-brown colour. Head seems not to last, but is light tan. Nice gentle beer, very fruity and easy to drink. A little watery.
