tombyars (1352) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - FEB 24, 2012
Tasted this in The Last Post, Paisley (JDW) in April 2007. Cask, handpump dispense. Dark copper red in colour with a thin creamy white head. Sweet dark berry fruit in the short aroma. Thin but creamy mouthfeel and good lacing. Mixed malts deliver a fiery digestive biscuit base with overipe redcurrants, blackberries and raspberries. An interesting floral hop prickle with spicy flavours in the brief bitter aftertaste which compliment the fruity malt well. Finish is malty with juicy winegums present. A strange mild this but highly recommended.

Cask at Market Porter, London. Amber beer with a small beige head. Malty fruity aroma. Fruity flavor, grapes, some citrus and some grass. Fruity finish.

harrisoni (13577) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 24, 2009
Cask handpull at The County Hotel, JDW, Ashford. Wow, looking at the reviews of this beer so far, I really don’t know what to make of it. Poured a hazy russet and I must admit I was in two minds as to whether to give it back to the barman as the end of the barrel (well it was a ’Spoons god knows what they do with the beers in cellar and he had no idea when the Oakham White Dwarf was coming on, how can he do that to one of that beers biggest fans in the world??). Some fruit on aroma. Raspberry, bit of diacetyl. Really some hop on finish. Some butter/diacetyl in mouth. Classic good condition. Really not sure if this should taste like this. Didn’t get any of the smoke that previous raters did. It reminds me of a fruit pie but not entirely in a good way. It’s pretty terrible to be honest but with hints of greatness. Had to leave a half of a pint.

bobinlondon (1256) - Harrow, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 23, 2009
Handpulled cask at JDW Hatch End, Harrow. Deep red with off white head. Gentle roast malt with smokey notes. Late hops add to a very pleasent drinking experience..

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 17, 2009
Cask at ’Spoons, Milton Keynes. Amber brown with an off white head. Very lively. Orange malt aroma. As for the taste, I hear ’ash’, ’nuts’, ’wood’, ’chocolate’, but my notebook declares that the flavour was that old Wetherspoons favourite, malt ’n’ mothball. Mid bitter finish.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 3, 2009
A Mes rate. Cask at Baker Street ’Sporks.
An inviting russet brown colour with a good beige head. Decent bready malt aroma with a pronounced nutty character and a good hit of bitter hoppage. Excellent balance of earthy malt and bitter floral hops in the mouth. Good nutty finish with a good hit of roast late on. Superb drinkability, equally good balance. Too hoppy to be a mild for sure. Whatever, it’s a lovely beer.

oh6gdx (20295) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAY 16, 2009
Cask@Black Door, Helsinki. Amber colour, mediumsized beige head. Aroma is nutty, berryish and some slight notes of wood. Flavour is fruity, hoppy and quite wooden. Quite mouthdrying. Surprisingly good for being only 3.8%.
