Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - NOV 27, 2005
Cask Conditioned, at the Market Porter, Borough, London. </br> Golden bitter, slightly foggy. Sulphurous aroma and flavour. That said itís got enough balance and poise to satisfy.

Nekronos (3633) - Xalapa, MEXICO - NOV 22, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 12, 2006 Good, creamy, very creamy, and a little sour, rather than ony bitter. Amber colour, and good foam. NOt booring, but a different flavor after a while.

Mungo (2472) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2005

leaparsons (8019) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 17, 2004
The New Road Inn, Leicester. Nutty brown with a dense white head. Aromas are caramel, chocolate and some sournes, that is quite unpleasant. Flavours are very smooth chocolate with sour fruit - an interesing, odd mixture. Perhaps this was the end of the barrel - but the pub I got it from is Cask Marque acredited so that canít be the case!

imdownthepub (10124) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 29, 2003
Cask conditioned at The Lamb & Flag, Oxford. Amber coloured with light head. Thinly flavoured slightly watery bitter, though there is an alcoholic bitterness and dry maltiness.

Nuffield (3667) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - MAY 5, 2002
Undistinctive brew, but it grew on me. Slight reddish tint. Rather plain flavor, but came out subtly in the finish (couldnít place the flavor exactly....) Smooth, buttery texture. (Had on tap, Lamb and Flag, Oxford)
