Cask at GBBF as ’Purple Moose Cwrw Madog’. Dark amber, still, clear, small bubbly white head. Aroma is sweet, bready. Body is medium, smooth, low carbonation. Taste is sweet, toffee, short finish with a soft bitterness. Quite nice. Maybe a touch sweet but a pretty solid bitter.

Pint on tap at Tyn-Y-Groes hotel. Slight malt nose, bronze ale with tiny white head. Nice mouthfeel. Good bitterness with malt undertones. Solid but unspectacular.

jmgreenuk (5943) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - APR 3, 2015
Cask at the Post Office Vaults, Birmingham. Poured a clear medium amber with a bubbly white head. The aroma is light malt hop. The flavour is moderate to light bitter with a light, slightly watery malt, light hop bitter palate. Light bodied with soft carbonation. A drinkable, light session ale, but somewhat weak and lacking flavour.

dynamiteninja (1681) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - SEP 25, 2013
Bottle. I’m not sure if this was bottle conditioned as it is crystal clear, with no sediment, and a weak head. Copper body. Thin white head. Nose is orange, citrus, spice, toffee, green apple. Bitter. Bitter and very dry finish. Soft mouthfeel. Very sessionable, Very good.

AshtonMcCobb (4131) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 6, 2013
50cl bottle @ Watson’s Bistro, Conwy. Pours amber with a reasonable head. The nose is all malt and honey. The taste is biscuits and toffee but still fresh. The palate is light to medium in body and texture and fresh enough on the finish. Overall, a well made bitter.

essexcalf (172) - Essex, ENGLAND - MAR 17, 2013
Taster, on cask at The Hoop, Stock, 16/03/13. Clear orange. Sugary, herb-like aroma. Strange, sweet, herb taste (hard to put my finger on. I thought it might have been some sort of gruit beer). Candy / caramelised sugar. Bit yeasty. Drinkable & OK, but quite odd.

ManVsBeer (6221) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 27, 2012
Golden red in colour with a very potent sweet berry aroma. Its taste is rugged with biscuit flavours.
