tommann (2861) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - NOV 2, 2010
Cask at Ye Olde Boot, Chester. Poured amber with a large head. Aroma was sweet honey hops, caramel malt and apple. Some apple to start and a sweet malt finish. Not the best pint of bitter, but you canít knock £1.52!

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - DEC 9, 2000

Mungo (2471) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - SEP 25, 2007
Aug 07 Cask conditioned @ York Arms, York. Thin watery malt, caramel and mild hops. Not exactly unpleasant but lacking in flavour and at this price its probably cheaper than buying a bottle of water to quench your thirst.

Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - FEB 11, 2008
On tap at the John Snow, Soho, 4th Feb 2008. Medium amber appearance. Aroma is sweet malt with a bit of hops. Stale, uninteresting flavour however and a thin, watery palate rounds off an unsatisfactory pint.

Desverger (2386) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 10, 2014

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - NOV 14, 2003
Cask Conditioned, at The Cittie of Yorke, Holburn, London.
This pub is worth a visit whether youíre a Sam Smiths fan or not. Itís on of the nicer heritage listed pubs in London. Central and easy to get to. Silk got the hump about the sparkler on this one but shit happens. The beer wasnít all that anyway. Dark amber with a creamy head. The beer was neutral on hops and malts, with little or no aroma. I think you're ment to drink 15 of them to register aroma/flavour.

TheGrandMaster (2334) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - DEC 4, 2005
Pint pulled at The Olde Cheshire Cheese on Fleet Street (London), a milky white that settles to an orange body with a full creamy head. A floral aroma with hints of citrus. Citrus strong again in the flavour (oranges I think) with further hints of melon. Very smooth on the palate with a slight bitterness left on the tongue.
