Ungstrup (29481) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 21, 2011
Cask at The Junction Tavern, London. An unclear amber beer with a thin off-white head. The aroma has notes of malt and caramel, as well as a lighter note of citrusy hops. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt and caramel, leading to a lightly bitter and buttery finish.

Cask@The Junction Tavern, London. Amber colour, not that much head. Aroma is wood, caramel, some earth, mild nuttyness and herbs as well. Flavour is quite much the same along with some bready and slightly caramelly notes.

Vladivostok (250) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUN 17, 2010
Gentle malt aroma followed by an even gentler malt flavour and a very soft mouthfeel. Hops not especially in evidence until the finish which is surprisingly long. A very pleasant beer and one which even the uninitiated would not find offensive. Odd name for a beer brewed in the least maritime of Englandís counties.

Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAY 4, 2010
Cask at the White Horse 40 from 40 Festival, 1st May 2010. Reddish deep copper colour. Fruity taste yet definitely dry. However, to my mind, the two characteristics combine in antiphase and make the beer worse than sum of its parts.

Cask @ Woking Beer Festival 2009. Pours a deep dark chestnut colour with an off-white head;. Good aroma of malt and fruit, the taste is also fruity which leads to a dry bitter finish. A very well made beer.

wheresthepath (1568) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAR 18, 2009
UPDATED: OCT 13, 2013 Overall rating is average of both ratings: [First rate - 17/3/09 - Cask at the Hope Tap, Reading - 6/4/8/3/15] Copper-red colour with a moderate, creamy off-white head - a nice looking pint. Negligible carbonation. Taste just makes me think of autumn - woodiness, crisp dry leaves, some fruitiness (sweet apples) and a hint of smoke. Thereís a crisp bitterness from the off, but this is contrasted by sweetness behind and a mouthfeel that is possibly (and this is my only criticism) just a tad too syrup-y. For an autumnal-style ale, this went down a treat on a warm spring day - itís a top-notch example of an English bitter, and tastes stronger and more distinctive than the ABV suggests. [Second rate - 5/10/13 - Cask at The Feathers, nr Cliveden, Bucks - 5/3/4/3/9] Long time since I rated this, and perhaps my tastes have changed, but this time round I didnít like this. Yes thereís some fruity malt and autumn leaves, but itís beaten into submission by bittersweet treacle. Too sweet up front, and with un unpleasant dirty bitterness left in your mouth afterwards.

downender (6379) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 3, 2008
Cask-conditioned at the Edgar Wallace, London 3/7/08. Reddish-amber with a decent, tight off-white head. Big caramel and red fruit aroma. Sweet in flavour with a vinous edge and a short, bitter finish. Enjoyable.
