On cask at Hallamshire House, Sheffield - suspiciously like Lord Marples, but until the admins merge it, why not rate it. Absolutely nothing wrong with this, a bit bland, but so much better than so many others Ive had this year. Nonetheless, I cant think of much to add to an average beer.

Cask at Cask Days 2014. Deep amber pour. Rich fruit and a bit of hoppiness. Stone fruit and some rich fruitiness. A touch of date and plum with some red berry notes. Fruity and quite tasty.

jmgreenuk (4922) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - OCT 19, 2014
Cask at the Victoria, Birmingham. Poured a crystal clear medium amber with a big frothy white head and loads of sticky lace. The aroma is light malt, light hop. The flavour is moderate to light bitter with a smooth creamy malt light hop bitter palate and a lingering bitter finish. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. A super smooth tasty and well kept session ale. I would drink this until the cows came home

weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - APR 23, 2014
Cask at The Macc. Darkish amber with medium sized off white head. Sweet malty aroma, rootbeer, biscuit. Some light hops, slightly herby and medicinal, smooth palate. Will have to try again, bit of an odd brew.

McNeillR (1325) - SCOTLAND - MAR 18, 2014
Clear light woodiness, eggshell white head. Fresh fruit loaf. Soapy sweetness on initial taste washes out to a mulchy malt bitterness on the finish. Middle Middle is clean, Red Fruit Gum sweetness before this imparts itself but as a bitter to not taste pathetically Buttery is a big plus for me.

Cask, Cloisters

Cask @Cloisters, pours dark amber heavy thick white head. Not a big nose slight, fruit. Big heavy malty rats with some dark fruit cake mix stuff going on, ok. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
