adwalton53 (1) - bradford, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 15, 2013 does not count
very poor head with some cloudy signs. a very thin mouth feel. slight hop taste but not that interesting. beer as a strange earthy, yeasty aftertaste which could be poor attenuation or over use of finings

Finn (4167) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JAN 3, 2013
Market Porter, Borough 4 Nov 12. Veldig lys gylden. Litt skum som fester seg litt til glasset. Svak maltaroma. Smaken tam. Litt syrlighet kan spores i ettersmaken.

Rune (8044) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 2, 2012
Half, cask, shared with Finn at Market Porter. Faint, white head. Clear golden-yellow body. Mild lemony hops to the nose. Lightly spiced fruity taste. On the sweet side of bittersweet ending. Easy going (London, 04.11.2012).

DruncanVeasey (7191) - NUNEATON, Top 18, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - SEP 10, 2010
Gravity, 3rd Hinckley BF. Pale and misted, scant white halo. Instant Belgium aroma: mushed wheat and coriander? Mealy crushed lemon puff biscuit wheat and spice- a one trick pony. Reminds me of a shandy made from the crap version of Carolus Spoons get in for the festivals, or Leffe. Hopless, dominated by breakfast cereals, Leffe sprinkles. Drinkably bland. Not what I was hoping for.

imdownthepub (10220) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 19, 2009
Cask conditioned at Far from the Madding Crowd, Oxford. Gold with white head. Initially quite sulpherous, then a plummy fruitiness with a touch of greengage. A slight perfumey hop to finish but all a little low on impact. Reasonable.

Fin (7409) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 23, 2009
Cask at Merton Summer Beer and Cider Festival, Merton, Oxon, 16-07-09 Pours gold in colour with slim white head. There is a smattering of hops on the nose. Taste is hoppy and a touch fruity, not as hoppy as expected, drying at the finish, touch sweet, its fine but no great shakes. A6 A3 F6 P3 Ov13 3.1
