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.

stravale (2424) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - OCT 10, 2011
Cask @ Swan and Three Cygnets, Durham 071011
Amber, bit orangey, clear with rich creamy head, good lacing.
Aroma....light.....caramel malt, bready, light hop, some apple
Taste of caramel malt, light bitter hops, appley.
Smooth, creamy mouthfeel. Not much finish - some caramel malt.
A nice beer, smooth but a bit appley. Cost only I think £1.60/pt. Incredible value for money!
