Draught at Robert Raike’s House, Gloucester - 25/9/10. Nicely coloured with a thick white head. Sweet taste and then some sugar in the palate. A smooth beer.

(cask @ The Town Warf, Isleworth). Severed with a sparkler , it looked half generic and half legit and not contrived. Customary butterscotch’y -carmely’ malt flavas, with a little dry citrusy hops in there . Pretty plesant offering from Smith’ys.

Leighton (9833) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 14, 2010
Tap at Bricklayers Arms. Pours a clear honey hue with a thick, creamy white head. Some grassy hops dominate the aroma, with bready malts lurking. Flavor is sweet with caramel, toffee and light apple, then some understated hops with mild pine and citrus. Medium in body with fine carbonation. Very creamy. Finishes well-balanced with sweet maltiness and caramel, then some lingering bitterness. Very good.

Frovigalning (2692) - Örebro, SWEDEN - AUG 30, 2010
On tap at Princess Louise. It didn’t have much of any smell. The taste was very mild, some bread and a hint of yeast. It did however had a smooth and lean mouthfeel, but with a light body. This was an easy to drink beer but it was to thin and lacked taste (even for it’s type) to get a better score.

hayduke (3159) - Eureka, California, USA - JUL 2, 2010
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 (215) - 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...

KyotoLefty (5894) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAR 19, 2010
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.
(@ The Cardinal; near Victoria Station, London)

nate2g (1548) - Boomtown! / Waikato, NEW ZEALAND - 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 (1108) - 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!
