oh6gdx (20299) - 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.

Cask conditioned at The Woolpack, Banbury, Oxon. Amber gold colour with large white head. Pleasant fresh hoppy light bitter, easy going citric notes, some grassy lemony hop notes and a good bitter finish. Enjoyable.

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 (8664) - 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.

Fin (7364) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 13, 2008
Cask at the Penny Black, JDW, Bicester, Oxon 12-01-08 Mid golden, with the merest of a haze, an aromatic beer, florally hops, honey in the mouth, but there is a nice citrusy underbelly to this beer. A really very good drop indeed.

chriso (7347) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 2, 2004
Not one of Titanic's better efforts (and I have been impressed by most of their beers). Light amber colour (not sure where the brewery gets the "pale ruby" description). Curious vegetal hints in the aroma. Clean but quite soft on the palate. A bit short on hops and rather thin. OK but undistinguished. Handpump, Lord Moon of the Mall, Whitehall, London SW1.

DruncanVeasey (7134) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - FEB 1, 2012
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.
