DJMonarch (9159) - Northwich, Cheshire, ENGLAND - JUL 31, 2009
Cask Stillage at the Intake Club, Mansfield 12/04/2008 Hoppy aroma. Clear golden coloured hoppy fruity and sweet on the palate with a honey flavour. A little creamy. Crisp and slightly bitter dry finish.

maeib (8627) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - MAY 18, 2009
Cask conditioned handpump Coach & Horses Dronfield. A really attractive bright gold coloured beer with a white head and lacing. The aroma has lemony hops and a bit of toffee or caramel. The taste has good bitterness and again that hint of caramel. Good but lacking any wow factor.

Theydon_Bois (8081) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - AUG 31, 2013
Cask at the Cask, Pimlico, 308/08/13. Another Thornbridge catch up rate ... surely I’ll run out of these soon ! Almost clear pale golden with a thin white head. Nose is citrus fruit, thinhops, melon, light piss. Taste comprises toasted malts, orange, grass, melon. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, dry finish with a little hop bitterness. Drinkable APA perhaps more GB than others of this ilk.

Rune (7943) - Tromsø, NORWAY - NOV 1, 2010
Pale golden body. See-through layer on the surface. Nice aroma of floral hops and citric fruits. Blended fruity taste character with notes of lemon, oranges and grapefruits. Herbal dryness to a bitter finish. Half, cask that came on during our stay at Sheffield Tap in Sheffield half pint 30 Sep 10.

jercraigs (7699) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 17, 2010
2010-08-02. Lightly hazy yellow with a small foamy white head. Flavour is mild, very light bitterness throughout, subtle mild fruit with whispers of citrus, hints at lemon. 6+ Aroma is a bit interesting, mild lemon, lightly yeasty, muted straw. 6+ Smooth average palate. Mild but super drinkable, this might score more highly on a day by itself rather than in comparison to its Thornbridge brethren. Cask at CASK Pub and Kitchen, London

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 8, 2008
A Mes rate: Cask at the White Horse.
Considering this followed a cask Black Albert and a draught Gonzo anyone could be forgiven for not thinking too much of this but you know what, it’s pretty bloody good. A shining example of quality English brewing like most beers from this brewer. Aroma is full of massive peachy, grapefruit hops with some perfect sweetish biscuity malt waaay in the background. Slightly hazy gold appearance with a very thin off white head. Flavour is a superb balance of grassy and aromatic U.S. hops with some wonderful earthy English malt. Delicate yet fantastic floral and bitter hop finish. Four ratings... four 3.8’s. Can’t be bad.

Scopey (6651) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 23, 2013
Cask at the Sheffield Tap. It pours clear amber with a medium white head. The nose is zesty orange, tangerine, Irn Bru, wood and some urine. The taste is pine, oat, grainy, grass, light sweetness, orange and tangerine with a dry, bitter finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Smooth and pretty drinkable.

Svesse (6065) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - AUG 30, 2008
(Cask at The Rake, Southwark, London, 9 Aug 2008) Golden colour with frothy, white head. Fruity, hoppy nose with notes of citrus, mainly grapefruit. Fruity, hoppy taste with citrus (orange, grapefruit), apricots and a generous, citrussy bitterness in the finish. Very nice, very drinkable.

mabel (5414) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 11, 2010
[3242-20100802] Cask. Odd herbal yeast and hops in the aroma. Slightly hazy, light orange brown body with a quick foamy white head. Herbal notes continue in the flavour with mild leafy hops. Medium body. Not as wonderful as hoped, a little disappointing.

jackl (4559) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - MAY 22, 2012
Cask @ CPK. Light golden straw color with a tiny white head. The nose is light citrus, grass, some subtle pine. Faint. The taste is light malty strawberry and some lemon wood. More straw. Light body. Overall, an OK APA. Nothing spectacular.
