yespr (40811) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - NOV 11, 2007
50 cL bottle. Pours hazy orange with a diminished white head. Mild malty aroma with a whiff of spices and some fruity tones. Flavour is slight malty with a herbal note into a bit of spices. Ends slight spiced too. A bit boring without any refinement.

harrisoni (17337) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 6, 2007
Cask gravity at Rare Breeds BF 2007. Chestnut red, bubbly beige head. Slightly sharp best bitter. Some malt, some hop, bit too acidic and sharp for me.

imdownthepub (13370) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 20, 2007
Cask conditioned at Coventry Beer Fest 07. Chestnut colour with white head. This was a smooth fruity bitter with soft plum flavours. The hint of sweetness dries to a crisp bitter finish. Good stuff.

Fin (9667) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 8, 2007
Bottle, picked up at Saltaire Wines, Saltaire, West Yorkshire 04-05-07. Amber in colour (maybe a bit darker) good soft fruitiness, bitterness initially feels restrained but it does linger for some time and becomes more so on the finish. Nice beer.

DanielBrown (4381) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 4, 2006
Hand pulled at the Wellington, Birmingham. Ginger colour, slim, beige head. Lagery malt aroma. Very metally, tinny flavour. Nasty metal aftertaste, which lingers most inappropriately. Watery mouthfeel. Some malt, but totally obscured by foundry. Gets better in the drinking, but the above comments stand.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 13, 2006
Bottle. Amber with a white head. Malty aroma and taste followed by moderate dryness. Fairly ordinary bitter.
