oh6gdx (20673) - 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%.

harrisoni (13897) - 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 donít 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 íSpoons 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. Didnít get any of the smoke that previous raters did. It reminds me of a fruit pie but not entirely in a good way. Itís pretty terrible to be honest but with hints of greatness. Had to leave a half of a pint.

TBone (12830) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 31, 2009
Cask@Black Door. Clear reddish nut brown color, small beige head. Sticky strawberry nose. Sweet and fruity. Lime-peel hoppy finish. Light palate. A bit odd.

rlgk (11051) - GŲteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 12, 2011

imdownthepub (10517) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 15, 2009
Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Chestnut to ruby with white head. A heavy sort of Mild really, lots of fruit and a decent hop note too. Initially, soft berry fruits, then a citric hop, quite tangy, orange. Is it a mild, not sure about that, certainly not a traditional mild, but really quite enjoyable anyway.

FatPhil (9423) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 14, 2009
UPDATED: APR 15, 2009 Cask (Pullman, Helsinki)
Smoky wooly phenolic aroma - elastoplast, sweet too, and a bit gingery. Soft carbonation. Lovely roasty and smoky-to-ashy taste. Full bodied for 3.8% - very tasty. Finish is burnt and ashy, but a touch sweet too. Good quaffer - rich and well-balanced.

DJMonarch (9159) - Northwich, Cheshire, ENGLAND - NOV 5, 2009
Cask Handpump at the Penny Black JDW, Northwich 13/07/2009 Fruity aroma. Small white head. Mid brown coloured hoppy and fruity bubble gum flavour with a little bitterness and dryness in a roast malt finish.

leaparsons (8200) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 28, 2009
Cask, Lord Keeper of the Great Seal, Oadby. Dark brown with a large beige head. Aromas are creamy with light roast malts. Soft berries and bubblegum. Flavours are sweet malts, smooth, creamy and lightly fruit. Some chocolate with light bitterness on the finish. Good.

Fin (7556) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 24, 2009
Cask at the Penny Black, JDW, Bicester, Oxon 24-04-09 Pours a slightly murky reddy brown colour and if Iím being honest this was one of the few ever so slightly negative points. The aroma was smoky and actually quite sausage like I ended up thinking this could be a little cousin of Scherlenka, it was quite obviously not in the full-on smoked sausage category of that great beer, but it was very distinctive in its own right. The taste was more fruity than smoked sausage, Iím not sure that Iíve come across the Cilea hop very much but maybe it was adding something here, there was a light hoppiness. Lovely Mild.

MesandSim (7118) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 3, 2009
A Mes rate. Cask at Baker Street íSporks.
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, itís a lovely beer.
