CapFlu (4913) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 31, 2014
Thin, dissipating white head atop a clouded deep amber body. Nose is peppery, mild hops and a light malt. Flavour is sweet, tonic and slightly metallic. Very quaffable. Best bodes date of July 2011 - yet held on well until now. Batch 10/104. Thanks to my good friend Max for bringing this back.

ralphdot (1011) - Billingham, Durham, ENGLAND - FEB 14, 2014
From Wetherspoons, 4.3% colour with a good head, slightly too hoppy aroma and taste.

BlackHaddock (5194) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - FEB 11, 2014
Hand-pulled pint in The Shrewsbury Hotel, a Wetherspoons place in Shrewsbury on 27th Jan 2014. Slight haze to the amber body, a deep creamy head sat on top. This leads with a hop bitterness and finishes in the same vain. It isn’t one dimensional though, there are malty bits within the flavours, it has a fruity centre and some biscuit crumbs to find in the taste. I enjoyed it, the 4.3% ABV sat nicely and I’d have another if it came my way again.

mr_h (4022) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - FEB 10, 2014
Cask by hand-pump at Hengler’s Circus, Glasgow - clear golden amber, thin off-white head, weak grapefruity aroma, nice film of lacing, bit of citrus, balanced by a good malty backbone, easy to drink

berkshirejohn (5395) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 14, 2014
Cask at the Old Manor (JDW), Bracknell. A slightly hazy amber pour with a ring of white head that leaves lots of lacing on the glass; straightforward grapefruit aroma; a sharp grapefruit bitterness in teh mouth; and a long finish with some honey providing a touch of sweetness. Very drinkable.

BeerViking (3475) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 6, 2014
Cask at the Moon under Water (Hounslow), dark gold pour with a floral and grapefruit nose, good citrus hoppy bitterness pretty well balanced with golden malt, dry-bitter grapefruit finish. Tasty.
