Gravicask (CWAF2013, Sat)
Lovely sweet fruity spicy hop aroma - peach to the fore. Tons of honey in the taste. A little sticky, but a nice full-flavoured sweet sipper. I could have this rather than desert!

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - FEB 4, 2013
Cask conditioned handpump Criterion Leicester 30/01/13. A broght copper coloured beer with a white head. Good orangey marmalade aromas from the hops. A decent full bosy with nice balancing malts. Good leafy hoppy mouth. This seems fairly simple but is so perfectly balanced and really very tasty.

BlackHaddock (4150) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 19, 2012
17th Feb 2012: Hand pulled pint in ‘The Wrekin’ Wellington, Shropshire. Brown/deep amber body colour: off-white almost beige head of foam on top which gave some good heavy lacing on my UK sleeve glass. Pleasant smell: blend of citrusy hops and malty molasses (toffee mostly) with a mini nutty undertone. The taste: More floral than the aromas, with a fairly dry bitter finish; OK more than great. Body depth and feel about right for a UK 4.4% Bitter: another ‘above average brew’ from a brewery who’s beers I enjoy drinking.

oh6gdx (20947) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 26, 2012
Cask@The Oxford, London. Chestnut brown with slight amber notes, small bubbly off-white head. Aroma is caramel, bread, mild nuts as well as resin and wood. Flavour is similar, but also has quite zesty and floral notes to it.

justm (164) - Essex, ENGLAND - FEB 27, 2012
Cask at Blue Boar, Billericay. Pours a cloudy amber / brown with a tight white head. The initial aroma is dull pineapple with a secondary zesty grapefruit that slowly awakens. Light and zingy on the palate, a creamy almost milk chocolate roasted pineapple becomes a zesty grapefruit further down the glass. This beer has quite a dry sharpness to it and as you swallow, subtle pineapple flavours fill the nose. There is a zesty citrus bitterness in the aftertaste that lingers for some while.

harrisoni (14141) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 15, 2012
Cask handpull at County Hotel JDW Ashford. Crazy I have not had this before. Clear chestnut brown colour with lasting glass clinging beige head. Aroma of some toffee. Malty toffee and dry malt flavour in mouth. Relatively decent hop on finish. Decent best bitter

strawman (26) - - FEB 9, 2012
A mellow citric nose, copper in colour, with a tight off-White head. Very citric in the taste, with no trace of malt. The very tart and astringent aftertaste puts me off having another.

Live@The Baron (JDW). Clear bronze, level white top. Aroma weak nuttiness and evergreen. Bitter with shampoo hop, indistinct nuttiness, light roast. Afters like burnt Reese’s, dry roasted, Westy. Some plum or red apple as it warms. Pretty average.

Citrus, grass and hops in the aroma, the beer is well hopped with a hint of citrus and a dry bitter finish. Good beer.
