imdownthepub (10647) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 17, 2006
Cask conditioned at The Plough, Warmington, Warks. Muddy brown with no head. This was in awful condition, a vinegar nose with a flat, monotonous palate. There was some fruit, berry, but overall this Lifeboat had gone down with the ship. Terrible.

Svesse (6296) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - AUG 9, 2006
(Cask at Knott, Mancester, 27 July) Colour is dark amber with a firm off-white head. Nose is malty, nutty and a bit citrussy (or maybe acidic?). Taste is malty and nutty with dried fruit and dusty hops in the finish. Buttery acidic notes indicating not the best of forms. I’ll give it another try sometime.

bluevegie (3059) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 11, 2006
Cask @ Wetherspoons. 16/05/06. Tea coloured body again with no head. Some sultanas in the taste also a little orangey but very little body, fruit on the nose - sultana- very light.

Finn (4402) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAY 30, 2006
Cask at Last Drop Inn York 3 May 06. Golden brown colour. Fruity body. Almost no bitterness. OK but not great.

Joeh (2049) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAY 22, 2006
Cask Conditioned at The Falcon (JDW), High Wycombe. Amber coloured. Aroma of fruit esters and some alcohol. Warm, fruit flavour, candy apple but well balanced by a touch of dryness. This had more alcohol and body than the 4% ABV might suggest.

DonMagi (5596) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 18, 2006
Aroma gives quite a bit of fruits amoung some floural hops. Taste is juicey quite fruity again but dry enough to session, great stuff!

chriso (7428) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 13, 2006
Cask (handpump), Wetherspoons, Victoria Station. A dark copper coloured ale with a smooth, off-white, head. Not crystal clear. Soft, fruity aroma. More forest fruits on the palate with some caramel malt, There’s a decent underlying citric hop character, with some resinous notes ) no doubt coming from the American hops) that provides good balance. The flavours are quite restrained and subtle. The mouthfeel is perhaps a tad thin but, otherwise, a pretty good beer. I didn’t really think this is a mild either, so I’ve changed the style.

Mungo (2471) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - MAY 12, 2006
Cask conditioned @ Standing Order (JDW), Soton. Toasty raisiny malts. Light roasty body with growing toffee. Nutty crystal malts. Quite nice but not great.

Fin (7684) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 17, 2006
UPDATED: JUN 15, 2008 Cask Handpump at ’The Harp’ Covent Garden, London 16-03-06. I thought the Harveys Sussex was unbeatable today until I tried this. A wonderful dark red beer with little head to speak of. The sweetness and bitterness are very good kept getting a pleasant vanilla taste with each slurp ’its difficult too sip’. Extremely good beer. Cask at the Nut Tree, Murcott, Oxon, 15-06-08 in the company of Loz, Casey and Traci Dark brown light mahogany colour with a slight off white creamy head. Taste is fresh, even a little earthy, bit citrussy some pithiness comes through, hoppy on the end, tangy, marvellous.
