Cask at Wetherspoons (under the Central Library), Birmingham. Delicious beer. Beautifully fresh and light. Full flavoured with juicy fruited hops and gentle drying UK grassy notes around the end. Very pleasantly surprised. Cask at its best.

Niall73 (2419) - Ontario, CANADA - FEB 19, 2014
Cask at wetherspoons, Streatham Hill. Pours a gold colour with a white head. The aroma is bread dough and a hint of lemon. Lightly malty, some lemon and a slightly astringent bitter finish. Not great. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Quite a nice pale bitter, taste has a slight touch of citrus to it and finishes with a smooth palate

Beese (2570) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 30, 2014
Cask at The Moon Under Water (JDW), Watford on 22 January 2014. Poured a clear chestnut colour with a thin white head and excellent lacing. Aroma of sweet raisins, Christmas pudding, chewy malt and a Belgian-esque character. Nutty sweet flavour with some rounded, full dried fruit and grain. Finish was Belgian yeast esters, caramel and some dry grain. Very good bitter.

downender (7960) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 29, 2014
Cask-conditioned at the Three Tuns, Bristol 29/1/2014. Amber with a slight, off-white head. A decent, bitter, with plenty of citrus notes, solid malts and lingering finish. Good.

RichTheVillan (6817) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - JAN 16, 2014
Cask at JDW Charlie Hall; clear light copper pour with broken magnolia head, fruit and nut aroma, taste is fruity with some zesty citrus, not big on the bitter levels.

jjsint (2377) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JAN 14, 2014
Cask @ Lloyd’s No 1, MK. Orange-yellow, not much head but lots of lacing. Apricot, grapefruit, malt aroma. Taste is middle of the road one-dimensional sour/bitter. Thin palette. Verdict: guilty of failure to deliver the taste promised by the aroma. Not one of Titanic’s best.

gegwilson (3284) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 6, 2014
Cask in the Tilley Shilling, Farnborough. A pale amber ale with a white head. A nicely balance beer with both good malt and hop notes. Starts sweetish with caramel and biscuit notes before a more bitter finish with pine. A very decent session brew.

DandyLion (518) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 7, 2013
Cask. Bright coppery colour, tight white head. Lovely peachy orangey smell. Tastes light at first, but has a sticky oily mouthfeel. Really nice actually. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
