Aniela (4207) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 30, 2013
Cask at The White Lion, Covent Garden London dec 2012. Dark amber/brown beer with a tanned medium lacy head. Fruity and hoppy aroma. Spicy and hoppy flavour. Too much spicies, kills the beer.

DruncanVeasey (8012) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - DEC 24, 2012
Cask handpull, The Shakespeare, Birmingham. Ruby with a thinning beige crown. Immediately weird mulled spruce and cranberry notes; sucking on a burnt twig; dark choc orange. Nose roasted nut and orange. Bit saline again. Very thinly dusted. Lacks roast, body, poetry, whatever. Boring.

imdownthepub (13233) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 22, 2012
Cask conditioned at The Eagle & Child, Oxford. Chestnut with no head. Really tricky to pick out what was wrong with this, it was flowery, perfumed, it tasted a little like boiled clove, spicy, raw and bitter. Not very pleasant.

MalcolmTucker (924) - SCOTLAND - DEC 13, 2012
Cask at the Haymarket bar. Dark amber with an off-white head. Spicy malt aroma with a touch of dark fruit. Flavour is caramel malt with a pepper/spice edge. Tastes a little bit dusty too. Not bad.
