harrisoni (13591) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 1, 2005
Cask at Duck and Drake, Leeds. Golden brown beer with elderflower hop nose. Very creamy due to being poured with a sparkler. Wonderful quaffing pint with some good berry fruit from the malt and a shortish drying flowery hop finish. Used to be one of my favourites, but so many pubs did it badly, it was a revelation to have it here

GarethYoung (1109) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - JUN 30, 2005
[cask at kirky puffer] pours an amber colour. Nose is fruity and hoppy witha subtle undertow of slightly nutty malt. good body with some bitterness in the finish, a solid session ale.

DonMagi (5596) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 23, 2005
Just another british ale, nothing special here really. Hoppy aroma, slightly roasted malts in the taste with a hoppy finish. Quite bitter. Maybe a session beer, but nothign special really.

Cask: Fruity aroma dominates. Copper/amber in colour with a small head. Medium smooth mouthfeel. Sweet balanced flavour with some nice hoppy notes.

CampbellWilson (533) - SCOTLAND - MAY 16, 2005
Beer number 3 in the Great Ayr/ Glasgow pub crawl. Weatherspoons West Kirk, Ayr. Light golden colour. Splendid hoppy aroma, good mouthfeel, long distinctive bitter finish. An old favourite, but its still great, and served very well in here.

NEBS (7) - Sunderland, ENGLAND - MAY 10, 2005 does not count
Cask@RokerHotel S’land - I’ve never really undertood the huge popularity this beer has. A spicy, hoppy traditional bitter with nice mouthfeel and clean hop aroma - but I wouldn’t describe it as anything more than a good premium bitter.

Excellent ale, one of my favorites when in the UK. Wonderful hoppy finish and nice body.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 22, 2005
Cask@a handfull of places, can vary to be sure, but when its on form its easily one of the best of the more available cask ales, beautiful fruity, hoppy bitter, nice fresh hoppy stuff (if on form).

Cask quite a few times now. Latest last night. Mmmm. Yep. This is a fine ael. I’ve not always had it in best condition, but when it is it is a blinder. Plays nicely. It shoots and it scores. OK. Citric head on a grainy base. Nice.

asheft (2499) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 16, 2005
[cask in London] Almost clear, brownish-orange with a creamy and bubbly head that appears to climb the sides of the glass. It was hard to get a good whiff of this beer in the smokey bar, but there definitely was some english hops in there and to too much malt. The flavour was really hoppy and had some toffee malt that wasn’t enough to balance the hops. Finish was quite bitter and ligering, but not astringent. Medium body and low carbonatoin.
