BlackHaddock (5653) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 9, 2014
Cask pint in the newly refurbished Oddfellows, Wellington Shropshire. Good looking amber body with a full, lasting head. The nose and taste were of hedgerow fruits and red berries with plenty of malty sweetness to balance out semi-sourness of the fruits. Mid bodied and enjoyable, all the other beers I had on the night of 8th Aug 2014 were golden and light, this stood out as my beer of the evening because of itís colour and flavour.

Hidden_Pooch (491) - Stratford, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - JUN 2, 2014
Cask at the Great British Beer Festival. I thought this to be pretty averages and forgettable, but not bad. She was a sweet fruity one and low on the bitterness, actually quite drinkable. Not that big of a body either. Not the best example of a bitter, but an alright beer.

ianwelby (950) - SCOTLAND - SEP 4, 2012
Clear pint with a thin, creamy head. A very fruity taste that I found to be overly sweet, if I was to drink one again Iíd have to be planning to nurse it a bit.

stravale (2714) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - AUG 5, 2012
Cask @ Abbey Inn, Kinloss 040812
Golden amber, creamy white head, good lacing
Aroma - very fruity, blackcurrant / blueberry, rather odd but likeable, some caramel malt in the background, pleasant
Taste - strong fruity berries, blackcurrants, blueberries, ok - the fruity flavour seems tacked on to a soft bitter with caramel malt and light biscuit. Its a weird beer thatís really quaffable.
Palate - soft carb, thin to medium body. Finish - bit dry, light biscuit, bitter hop, slight metallic edge though
Overall - OK other drinkers might dislike this but I actually like drinking this beer even if itís so odd

madmitch76 (20823) - , Essex, ENGLAND - AUG 29, 2010
6th August 2010. GBBF.
Clear gold beer. Amazing fruit salad sweets nose! Carries over in to the flavour with sweet fruit salad sweets and a jarring note of smoke in the background. Semi dry finish. A bizarre beer - is it really meant to taste like this? Hard to dislike though!
