BlackHaddock (6351) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 10, 2012
Pint, hand pulled during a íMeet the brewerí evening in my new Wetherspoons (Oct 2011). Golden copper coloured body, clear and fairly bright, thin white head on top. The challenger and goldings gave off a nice hoppy aroma, not too strong but they were there for sure. The taste was a mix of the said hops and some mild toffee flavours, not unpleasant but fairly weak. The beer is only 3.6% ABV but it lacked umph and the body wasnít heavy enough for me. Iíd imagine it to be fine on a warm, sunny afternoon watching cricket, but I didnít really take to it Iím afraid.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - MAR 21, 2011
Cask conditioned handpump Samuel Pepys Slipton. A typical Slaters beer with sweet toffee notes. A bit of diacetyl and some phenolic notes. Too sweet although it doesnít drink too bad.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 2, 2010
Cask at The Green Man, Stamford, Lincolnshire. Copper with a small white head. Malt aroma with sweet fruit gum. Taste is an odd comination of malt with sour fruit, perhaps unripe grape. Mid bitter finish. Should be good, but it doesnít work for me. To be honest, I thought I read the name on the pumpclip asíWhy Knotí, presumably a punning reference to the Slaters logo.

Leighton (18527) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 30, 2010
Cask at the Wenlock Arms, London. Pours a semi-clear hue with light film. Fruity aroma with yeast and dough. Sweet flavor with Belgian candi-like notes, caamel malts, and earthy bitterness. Medium in body with fine carbonation. Finishes bitter with some grassy hops and faint caramel malts. Good.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 17, 2009
A Mes rate. Cask at the Wenlock Arms.
Clean gold with a decent white head. Decent hoppy aroma but very basic. It does even less in the mouth and what it does do is not good. Itís not like a can pick out anything that it particularly wrong, itís just the flavours are not pleasant. Meat, oily fat and pondwater. Yup, Iím done.

harrisoni (17284) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 13, 2009
Cask at Swan with Two Nicks, Worcester. Itís a slightly buttery toffee bitter, some attractive softness in mouth, not much hop. Not much bitterness either but it was a damn sight better than the Bodddingtons.

imdownthepub (13234) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 15, 2009
Cask conditioned at The Old Fox (Theatre Bar), Birmingham. Gold with white head. Well, I hardly got anything from this, a largely tasteless thin, watery beer, maybe a yeasty malty body, but little else, nothing off either, just nothing.
