duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 16, 2007
Cask@Sussex BF. Tastes quite nutty and caramelly. It is quite malty, and initally sweet, but quickly dries in the end, with a nutty dryness. Crystal malt characters are very obvious in this beer.

SilkTork (5163) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 8, 2002
Served way too cold in a plastic glass during the winter Dickens Festival in Rochester. Has a sweet malt base with a good citric hop attack. The hops die down after a while allowing the malt base to reveal it’s poor quality. Reminded me more of a Vienna than an Ale, but that could be the result of the way it was served. The hops return quite pleasantly in the finish, but nothing special.

Cask conditioned at The Rover, Göteborg, Sweden. Ruby colour, no head. Roasty aroma with fruity notes. Fruity flavour with a late, but long bitter finish.

DanielBrown (3702) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 6, 2005
Hand pulled at the Wellington, Birmingham - with Maeib in a state of impending fatherhood! Nutty brown ale: in colour and roasted chestnut flavour. Rich, with a chocolate finish. Pretty tart, with a malt relelase to finish. Definitely a Brown Ale. Nice fullness.

Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAR 8, 2008
Cask at the Brewery Tap, Wimbledon Village, 4th March 2008. Rich chestnut brown colour with a strange aroma of hops and graphite (like pencil sharpenings). Hops and malt are well balanced but there’s a metallic note. Light at the front of the mouth and then gets fuller. Ok, but didn’t wow me.

mR_fr0g (2413) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 26, 2014
Cask gravity at the brewery shop. Aroma is sweet nutty jam fruits. Clear rich red copper colour with a lasting thin off white head. Flavour is nutty malt, dried fruit, some earthy hop bitterness. Really good condition. Another solid beer.

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - NOV 15, 2003
Cask Conditioned, at the Wenlock Arms, London.
Golden brown with an ever so fine head. Surprisingly hoppy, complicated by a nutty almond twist. Easy drinking style of beer with a medium to long palate.

vipinvelp (2048) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - NOV 7, 2013
Clear brown with off white foam head. Aroma is quite sweet, taste is nutty indeed. Bit watery, but drank in a pleasant surrounding between beer lovers. (Marlow 201311)
