harrisoni (17284) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2009
Cask gravity at Battersea BF 09. Crystal clear amber, no head. Bit stoney, it’s a bit thin. Yep, just a bit poor.

imdownthepub (13234) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 8, 2007
Cask conditioned at Merton Beer festival ’07. Amber, no head. I get what they are trying to do with this without getting it, so to speak. A light bitter, malt, biscuit background but when you expect the hops to kick through, they don’t, they are hiding. Still light and malty on the finish, it will appeal to some, just not me.

Fin (9596) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 11, 2007
Cask at Merton Summer Beer Festival 06-07-07. Poured amber with a small white head. This was quite tasty, albeit a touch on the sweet side with caramel being the first flavour to hit me followed by a pleasant but safe maltiness. Glen’s right there wasn’t too much showing from the hops, but regardless of that I rather enjoyed it.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - OCT 2, 2010
Cask Conditioned Handpump Market Porter Borough Market. An amber coloured beer with an off-white wisp of head. Served too warm and hence struggling a little. A fairly sweet fruity beer with leafy hops. A reasonable body and not that bad; just needs more chilling.

DruncanVeasey (8012) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAY 26, 2011
UPDATED: JUL 29, 2012 1) Bottle from Dobbies....you couldn’t say conditioned. Slops headless copper with a brief fizz of foam. Buttered dandelion aroma. Alarming, slightly brackish taste at first; some half-decent liquorice and digestive notes amongst the varnished wood, fatty walnut, raw mushroom and chlorine weirdness. Barely drinkable. 524210. 2) Cask handpull as ’Dadlington Hamlet’, The Dog and Hog, Dadlington. Copper-gold with a tight white drum of foam. Mellow apple peel English orchard fruit and biscuit character, sprinkle of demerara. Yeast and bread. Weak pear nose, boiled sweets. Decent. 636313.

downender (7925) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 8, 2010
Cask-conditioned at the Staffordshire Beer festival, Seven Stars, Bristol 6/10/10. Sweet, syrupy aroma with a hint of grassy hop. Flavour had some summer fruits, cereal malts and short, bitter finish. Lacked impact.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 15, 2007
A Sim rate (cask at Chelmsford BF): Aroma of apple and very slight caramel. Candy apples? Flavour is similar with slight alcoholic bitter aftertaste.

RichTheVillan (6669) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2014
Cask at the Bishop Vesey; this beer manages to achieve a zero smell and an insipid taste, flavour does consist of boiled vegetables, on the plus size it does have an appearance of light amber with a thin white head.
