Cask (handpump) @ Chandos, London. Clear amber body with a creamy small off-white head that leaves nice lacing. Aroma is medium sweet, spiced apple, some herbal, light wood. Taste is medium sweet, earthy/herbal, apple, some caramel, with a bit of wood in the finish. Easy to drink.

Ungstrup (29284) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 11, 2007
[Cask at The Cock, London] A slightly hazy orange beer served thru a sparkler to give it some off-white head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of caramel. The flavo ris sweet malty with quite a lot of fruit and toffee, leading to a lightly bitter end. The mouthfeel is very smooth. A solid bitter.

Wooden cask at the lovely old Anchor Tap - Tower Bridge. Almost clear amber beer, good pale cream coloured head. Softish and semi dry palate. Nice mouthfeel. Good tangy dried fruits with a pleasant hint of sourness. Semi dry finish with super mild bitterness. Nice bitter! Seems to be rounded off and very drinkable.

harrisoni (13704) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 6, 2007
Cask handpull at Cittie of Yorke, Chancery Lane. Amber with lasting thin beige head. Caramel aroma, no real yeast or hop on aroma. Itís ok in mouth but a bit thin. Bit bland overall. Drinkable. "Itís better when it comes in the mouth than when you swallow," as my Danish companion said. Not as good as I remember but also not terrible. Itís a bitter, some malty fruit towards the finish. Some drying hop on end.

Oakes (12551) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 18, 2000
UPDATED: FEB 24, 2014 Very fruity, hints of wood in the finish. Refreshing, with a subtlely complex malt character. Supremely sessionable. The wood adds an extra dimension - some tannins in particular - that elevates this beer.

TBone (12547) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 30, 2006
Cask@Princess Louise, Holborn, London. Amber color, good creamy off-white head. Mild nutty nose - canít get much out of it in the smokey pub. Fruity, mildly hoppy towards the end. Good session ale.
