FatPhil (9359) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 24, 2007
Cask (Peterborough BF 2007) Deep orange with no head. Sickly sour fruit spoils the taste. Shows some potential, but probably a bad barrel.

chriso (7365) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 17, 2004
Copper colour. Quite dry with notable, dusty hop presence. Plenty of backbone, but drinks very easily for a relatively strong beer. Very dry finish, with lots of bite. Cask (gravity dispense), St Albans Beer Festival.

Gravity, at the St. Albans Beer Festival, 2004
Amber/brown body, no head again. Lovely malt base complimented by a deep rooted hop base. All in all a pleasant bitter with some interest.

Joeh (2038) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - OCT 2, 2004
Cask Conditioned @ the Saturday session, St Albans Beer Festival 2004. Beer #5. I didn’t get the bitterness that other raters have noted, to me this as fruity and vaguely juicy.
