Hippoman (258) - Durham, ENGLAND - OCT 2, 2015
Cask at The Market Tavern, Durham. Six Nations special beer revived for the Rugby World Cup. Honey coloured beer with a smooth, white head. Crisp malted cereal in a slightly bitter aroma. Crisp sweet grain in flavour with more malt than hop. Not much more to it - a pretty dull golden ale but reasonably punchy and drinkable.

jjsint (1557) - Ely, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - MAR 18, 2015
Cask at the Six Bells, Cambridge. Dark gold, with a bit of loose white head. Scent of toffee, whiskey, hazelnut. Taste doesn’t live up to the aroma: bitter and sour without much variation to the long finish. Bittersweet aftertaste. Quite average really, which is par for the course for sporting event themed beers...

leaparsons (8980) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 2, 2013
Cask, The Pub, Leicester. Hazy gold with a white foam. Aromas are apple and grain with spices. Base biscuit with woody notes and hints of lemon. Flavours are bittersweet lemon with grain and biscuit. Hints of honey with a dry finish. It’s OK.

Cask by handpump at Bon Accord, Glasgow - clear golden, thin white head, no lacing, floral and sweet malty aroma, musty, vegetable, bit of fruit, cereal, not my type of flavour

Rune (9504) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAR 26, 2011
Half pint, hand pulled from cask at Bree Louise, Euston. Bare naked surface to a clear, amber-gold body. Subdued aroma of floral fruits. Malt-fruity taste. Dry on the swallow. Very average (London, 20.03.2011).

downender (7150) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 7, 2011
Cask-conditioned at the Cornish Beeriodical, Seven Stars, Bristol7/02/2011. As Maeib noted, a sweet malty bitter with little hop character. Forgettable.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - FEB 15, 2010
Cask conditioned handpump The Pub Leicester (The bitterly cold in Leicester crawl). A golden beer with a loose white head. Served very cold. A pretty non-deScript sweetish bitter which is verging on cloying. Lacks hops. Not so good.

imdownthepub (11664) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 1, 2009
Cask conditioned at The Easington, Banbury. Gold with white head. Light malty golden ale, quite fruity with a touch of apricot, late greenish hop gives a slight contrast. However it feels slightly bland through the pint.
