berkshirejohn (4677) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 12, 2012
Cask at the John Russell Fox (JDW), Andover. Reddish amber with a loose cream head that laces the glass nicely; fruity aroma; thin in the mouth with some sour purple fruits and caramel malts; then a thin and dry finish that is less than satisfying. I pity Rudolph, there are far better rewards out there for the taking!

Rune (8493) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 6, 2012
Half-pint, cask at JDWs Angel. Clear amber body, layer at the top. Resin-like aroma. Quite inviting resin and leafy hops in the flavour profile supported by wood and caramel malts. Dry bitter ending. Decent seasonal bitter (London, 25.11.2012).

jackl (4980) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - DEC 18, 2011
Deep amber color. Light sweet nose - some caramel and dark fruits. The taste is lightly sweet with a dry, bitter finish. The body’s a bit thin but entirely drinkable. Overall, an acceptable seasonal from the lads at Shepherd Neame.

DJMonarch (9160) - Northwich, Cheshire, ENGLAND - APR 28, 2011
Cask Handpump at the Ring O’ Bells, Warrington 29/12/2010 Floral hop aroma. Amber coloured and fruity with a hint of dryness in a bitter and grainy malt finish.

meerbier (1474) - Pijnacker, NETHERLANDS - JAN 2, 2011
Cask@ShakespearsHeadLondon. Flavourful beer. Bitter, light floral, hint of toffee. Light brown, off-white head, good lace. Bit thinnish though. But for just 3.7% ABV a good beer.

JohnRMurdoch (3410) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - DEC 28, 2010
Cask @ The State Bar. Mild nutty malt aroma. Medium brown colour. Harsh sour grassy flavour. Not nice.

Spoons. Clear amber beer, ghost of a white head. Light palate. Zero carbonation. Dry malt. Thin hops. A little dust. Neutral finish. Dull bordering on offensive. Sheps can make good beer but beers like this just torpedo any attempt to take them seriously!

JamieFerdinand (163) - Hove, East Sussex, ENGLAND - DEC 23, 2010
Draught at The Flying Horse, Gatwick - 16/12/10. Chocolate in the nose and taste. Perhaps some vanilla in the palate.

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - DEC 22, 2010
UPDATED: DEC 27, 2012 Cask Conditioned handpump Moon On The Square Northampton. A brown beer with a thin off-white head and lacing. A yeasty beer with fruit and biscuit in the mouth, but otherwise very little of anything. Quite boring. Score 2.7
Subsequent rating scored 2.6 Score unaltered

leaparsons (8323) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 2, 2010
Cask, William Wygston, Wigston. Amber with a thin foam. Aromas are dusty grain with light cookie dough and yeast. Quite peppery. Flavours are grain and toast malts with soda water. Has some hints of Autumn fruit with a peppery finish. Pretty weak.
