DruncanVeasey (6950) - NUNEATON, Top 24, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - DEC 16, 2010
The Baron, Hinckley. Deep gold with a fine even collar. Plastic and stale fruit aroma. Flavour of whitebread sandwiches kept in a warm plastic lunch box with a banana, an apple and an orange. Watery, a touch stale and dangerous; almond hints with some redeeming husky malt and digestives on the end. Shown up by the Holdens I’m afraid. Dour strong ale- didn’t finish a half.

Rune (7346) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 16, 2010
Half pint, cask at The Alexander Graham Bell (JDW) in Edinburgh. Tiny, white head that stays well atop of a clear, copper body. Aroma is mid-sweet, malt-fruity. Sweet bready malts in flavour conjoined by sweet fruits and followed by a spiced bitter ending. Likable, 30.11.2010.

wheresthepath (1445) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - DEC 14, 2010
[Cask at the Back of Beyond, Reading] Light amber, slight white head. Fruity aroma. Peppery at first, but then a growing sweetness - too much so by the end. Rather watery for a beer of this strength.

sm89walt (1712) - Northern Beaches, Sydney, AUSTRALIA - DEC 4, 2010
Cask - The Bell Hotel (JDW), Norwich. Small though lasitng creamy off-white head, some lace and a slightly hazy ruddy orange body. Good general malt profile and a sweet cakiness. Caramel, bread & sulphur aromas. Sweet and malty though not spiced as I imagined it might be. Minerally, bready malt backbone and a fair though short almost herbal hop finish. Light to medium body & carbonation.
