harrisoni (14104) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 10, 2006
Cask gravity at Rare Breeds BF 06. Hazy copper, with lasting beige head. Resiny hop aroma, bit of grapefruit. Smooth in mouth, juicy citrus finish. Yes, could do with another half a day settling, but still a pretty good bitter.

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - MAR 11, 2006
UPDATED: FEB 7, 2012 Cask conditioned - handpump - Falcon Fotheringhay. A reddy brown coloured beer with a fruity berry aroma but also a little diacetyl and toffee. The body is full and fruity, but again there’s something a little disconcerting about the sweet caramel/toffee flavours. Score 3.1
Subsequent ratings scored 3.0 and 3.4. Average becomes 3.2

Cask Conditioned, at the GBBF, 2004.
Amber/tawny colour quite a looker. Aroma is a well balance blend of malts and hops. I noted the good balance twice to extra props on the balance. Moderate to good length on the palate.
