MrJamesMcEwan (35) - SCOTLAND - MAY 11, 2014
Bottle. Pours cloudy, dark red/amber, with a thick tan head that settles thin & holds. Medium bodied, low carbonation, very fine bubbles. Aroma is nice, burnt caramel, fruit, malt. Taste is of malts & hops, slightly bitter, orange, tangy, malty of bread & wood. Finish is bitter & dry.

Nilz (365) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - MAR 20, 2014
Bottle pours a clear and reddish ale with a little white head. Aroma was malty with red fruit notes. Taste was a sweetish maltyness and a caramel, roasted element with a mild bitter finish. I rather liked it.

Beese (1463) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 13, 2013
Cask at the Moon Under Water (JDW), Watford on 27 October. Poured a clear copper colour with a rocky off white head. Aroma of straw, tinned fruit and a slight medicinal note. Bitter fruit flavours with caramel and hay in the mix, but it’s all rather off balance. Finish is astringent bitterness with fruit rind and spruce. Not to my liking at all.

davidtjm (254) - Berlin, GERMANY - NOV 2, 2013
Citrus & malt aroma, an interesting taste, with some citrus elements with malt in the taste. Quite nice

The Playhouse, Spoons. Cask. Clear amber beer with a tidy pale cream coloured head. Palate is smooth and semi dry. Tangy ripe orange, semi sweet. Smooth creamy malt with a light floral touch. Whispers of tropical fruits and smoke. Finishes semi dry. Complex and quite interesting.

berkshirejohn (4378) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 31, 2013
Cask at the Old Manor (JDW), Bracknell. Reddish chestnut with a ring of cream head; lacking in aroma; the body is grainy and thin, with a caramel taste; then a dry finish. A very basic, and unattractive, bitter.

BlackHaddock (3479) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 31, 2013
Hand-pulled pint in The Briar Rose (Spoons), Birmingham on 30th Oct 2013. More amber than red, even though the pump-clip stated ’Red Ale’, with a white, lasting head. Pleasant enough blend of flavours, mild citrus nose with malty overtones: taste is 50-50 with the hops and malts vieing for position, with neither winning the battle. Medium bodied and very drinkable: but I’m on a mission, so only one of these today.

mR_fr0g (2387) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 28, 2013
Cask at the moon under water Watford jdw. Deep copper colour with a persistent off white head. Aroma is choc caramel and hot alcohol. Flavour is oak, booze whiskey. Tastes barrel aged. Some spicy hop in the finish. Medium body and carbonation.

RichTheVillan (2415) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 22, 2013
Cask at JDW Bishop Vesey; deep mahogany pour with foamy off white head, slight roast malt aroma, roast malt taste a hint of coffee,
