Ungstrup (28448) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 30, 2004
[Cask at Charlies Bar, Copenhagen] A hazy deep red beer with a small beige head. The nose is light, but sweet with notes of berries especially lingonberries. The flavor is sweet and very bitter with notes of bisquites besides some floral notes.

Cask at Wellington, Birmingham
Dark mahogany color, beautiful with its red shades. The aroma shows a suspicious light trace of apples. The flavor has some quite good dark caramel and roasted malts, with traces of apples too, and correct bitterness. I wonder about the bitterness, but it’s a pretty good Bitter.

Cask at O’Connells. Clear copper color, good off-white creamy head. Aroma has caramel and light earthy hops. Light-bodied. Caramel, leafy hops, even toffee. Lingering English bitterness in the aftertaste. Sweet, light and a bit hoppy.

imdownthepub (9622) - 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.

pivnizub (8574) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - AUG 11, 2010
Cask (@Three Legged Mare, York): Amber coloured, quite stable creamy off-white head; distinctive toasty and dry fruity nose; moderate to solid dry bitter flavour, quite light bodied, but not watery; lingering malty and dry bitter finish. Pleasant and tasty.....

chriso (7344) - 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.

A Mes rate: Cask at Baker Street ’Spoons. Rather malty and sticky. Some breakfast cereal in there with sugar on. Flowery hop finish.

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.
