Nekronos (3633) - Xalapa, MEXICO - DEC 15, 2005
UPDATED: APR 30, 2006 Good, a little bitter for my taste, the foam is great, creamy, I must say, and the taste is very bitter. I like it very much.

Mungo (2472) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - NOV 6, 2005
Cask conditioned @ Royal Oak, Winchester. I’m not sure what has happened to this (former?) Hogshead pub but it now only stocks Greene King products. As for the beer typical Greene King character. Husky malt and fruity caramel and a vague earthy hop finish. Drinkable enough but I find it hard getting past the initial husky barrier.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 12, 2005
Fruity, caramel, toffee aroma with some earthy, floral hops apparent. Clear copper coloured body with low large bubbled tan head that recedes to ring. Somewhat musty earthy, floral hops and caramel malts. Cask at Charlie’s Pub, Copenhagen.

CaptainCougar (7131) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - SEP 11, 2005
Cask at the Eagle Pub, Cambridge: Deep copper mahogany pour with a frothy, dense, well-lacing white head. Lightly pale malty aroma has lots of earthy and dry hoppiness. Body starts with a nice fullness, some dry grainy malt and some light toffee and bittering English hops. Has some mild hints of fruity tartness toward the dry finish.

kwik-lime (1297) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 23, 2005
way better than the canned variety. Crisp bitterness, fairly malty. Nice session bitter but nothing earth-shattering. Brown in colour.

Cask at some Greene King pub in Wooburn Green, Bucks. Sweet, fruity bitter with hints of caramel. Even though it’s Greene King it’s still good.
