downender (6151) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 5, 2013
Cask-conditioned at the Commercial Rooms (JDW), Bristol, October 2013. I think I got a bad pint here. The caramel sweetness was heading in the direction of buttery, and the spiciness was muted. Not good.

Cask, William Wygston, Wigston. Copper with an off white foam. Aromas are nutty with light Weetabix malts and grassy, lemon notes. Peppery with hints of berries and fudge. Lightly roasted with floral notes. Flavours are sweet Weetabix with bitter lemon and spritzy, peppery notes. Red berries with earthy notes and a dry, pithy finish. Pretty good.

wheresthepath (1524) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - NOV 8, 2013
Cask at the Square Bottle (JDW), Chester. Brown with a thick cream head. Rich toffee, some lemon and some crackly autumn leaves. Earthy bitterness to finish. A traditional, but indulgent-feeling English best bitter. One of the best Iíve had from this brewery.

jjsint (645) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2013
Cask at the Bankers Draft, Bedford. Translucent brown. Takes a while to clear. Aroma is big on malt: chocolate, firewood, a bit musty. The taste is almost like a sweet stout, sweetness lingers throughout with bitter edges. For a brewery that usually do things by the book, this was a bit of a surprise.

Jonb5 (341) - Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 31, 2013
A: Dark ruby, on the opaque side, one finger head, decent retention, no lacing. S: Minimal to non existent some malt and berries as it warmed. T: Roasted malt, cranberry, dark chocolate. M: Smooth, thick texture, soft carbonation. O: Fairly wintery, didnít do it for me, too strong to session.
