Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 14, 2011
Cask at Cloisters. Pours a cloudy golden colour with a thin white head. Aroma of wet hay, caramel and musty honey. Similar flavours of caramel, hay, honey and wet cardboard this time. Nicely dry with a long dry linger, however, this doesn’t redeem this beer.

wimpyjoe (2955) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 26, 2014
Cask @ Cask & Feather, Rochdale. Golden with a small creamy head. it’s nose has aniseed evident with a more fruit leaning taste.

Mungo (2472) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2005
Cask conditioned @ JDW, Soton. Good Citric hop aroma and some light maltiness. Could do with more assertive hop body rather than the balanced caramel which makes it seem disjointed,

NosirIwont (1893) - Aalborg Vestby, DENMARK - SEP 26, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 2, 2005 Cask @ The Wharf, Aalborg, DK. Pours a golden amber colour with a small white head. Fresh, sweetish hop aroma. Flavour is a slightly bitter hoppy one. Slightly malty finish. Feels rather watery, unfortunately. 26-09-05.

wyzzywyz22 (1885) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - MAR 24, 2008
Cask, Hoylake Lights. Golden with thin white head. Appropriately named as this is very workmanlike, and while solid enough is lacking in any real finesse. Next please, don’t let your work boots muddy the carpet on the way out.

SarkyNorthener (1414) - Walsall (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 15, 2013
Cask@the avion, aldridge. Hazy Orange amber beer with small head and good lacing. Aroma of citrus hops. Taste is Orange peel, lemon, a little dry and some earth. Decent bitter.

tombyars (1317) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - FEB 23, 2012
First tasted this in the Last Post, Paisley (JDW) in January 2008. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear orange amber in colour with a thick white head. Strong marmalade notes in the short but intense aroma. Good creamy mouthfeel and decent lacing. Pale malt complexes leads to a biscuit flavour with citric fruit notes of orange peel and pink grapefruit. Dry dusty hop resins give a floral bitter aftertaste. Finish is slightly malty with pithy citrus fruit evident in the mouth. An ok session bitter but nothing exceptional.

bobinlondon (1250) - Harrow, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 31, 2008
Handpulled cask at JDW Harrow earlier this year. Pake brown with a white head. A vert well balanced bitter with complex citrus hop flavours. Very enjoyable.

haddonsman (1234) - Derby, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2006
Cask (handpump) at the Devonshire Cat, Sheffield. Saved from mediocrity by a faint fruitiness before the sudden finish. Otherwise, a rather chewy little bitter.

On cask at Stalybridge Buffet Bar October 20, 2013 - Clear amber beer, soft lacing white head. Nose was grassy, a bit floral, but in a washed down sense. The taste was okay, the grassiness overwhelmed it though, nothing overly offensive - just not my cup of tea.
