From a hand pulled cask pour in The Falcon pub in Chester, England. Rich amber color with a creamy white head on top that left very sticky lacing. Nose of floral hops with sweet malts . Medium body and a very smooth mouthtfeel with low carbonation, Good flavor with citrus and floral hops and a lot of malts in the background. Finish is bitter. Very good.

Vladivostok (451) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUN 3, 2010
Sweetish and very distinctive. A dark bitter, usually with a creamy head in which malt dominates and strangles the hops. The best thing about it is the incredibly cheap price...

From the big oak barrel at Sinclair’s Oyster Bar, Manchester. Good fruity taste and aroma. Not a whole lot of hops for the style. Lots of fruit; just a bit sweet. Very smooth; very nice. Easy to drink and full-flavored, but not at all too bitter. Great balance. Excellent.

[2714-20100119] Tap. Pungent apple sweet fruit aroma. Clear, dark orange body with a quick foamy white head. Little apple flavour has lots of buttery toasted malt notes. Medium body. Really good, odd fruitiness.

nate2g (1548) - Boomtown!, AUSTRALIA - MAR 12, 2010
Cask @ Princess Louise, London. Golden with creamy white head. Aroma and flavour of fruity hops and an OK malt backbone for support. Easy enough drinking.

Muggus69 (2139) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - MAR 10, 2010
Cask Amber body, white cream atop. Floral hops on the nose, with a good amount of sweet toffee malt. Smooth texture, low carbonation, medium body. Nice hop flavour; decidedly fruity, citrus mostly, bit of grass with a biscuit and toffee malt backbone, balancing a moderate bitter finish. Quite good, especially for the price!

downender (7958) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 14, 2009
Cask-conditioned at the Cittie of York, London 13/10/09. Amber in colour with a decent, off-white ehad. Fruity, caramel aroma and flavour, with a touch of earthiness in the finish. Ok.

kwik-lime (1706) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 7, 2009
Beautiful, creamy head that lasts the full of the length of the pint. Nice malty aroma but nothing special taste-wise, a standard and well-balanced session ale that goes down easily but is somewhat boring.

Christian (12921) - Odense, DENMARK - SEP 26, 2009
Golden with a lasting creamy, almost nitro-looking head. Fruity and malty aroma with an apple peel note. Sweet and malty flavour with a hint of grasy
