[Cask from The Guildford Arms] Coppery colour with a moderate, tight head, good clarity, nice condition. Leafy, English hop character, very earthwith some floral nuances, lots of malt, biscuity, caramel. Medium body with a hoppy bite in the finish.

Scopey (9382) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 16, 2014
Cask at Cloisters. It pours clear deep amber-brown with a medium yellow-white head. The nose is toasted brown, grainy, mild caramel, earth and wood. The taste is smooth, toasted grain, brown, wood and leather with a dry finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Simple malt-driven job. OK, but probably their poorest offering.

jamestulloch (2217) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 13, 2014
Cask at Scottish Real Ale Festival 2014. Clear caramel body with a thin off-white head. Light lacing. Aroma of earth, heather and Hobnob biscuits. Flavour of caramel, grass and biscuit. Thin body with an oily mouthfeel. Faint carbonation prickle. Well balanced - quite plain, but very nice.

allmyvinyl (6629) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 11, 2014
Cask at The Scottish Real Ale Festival 2014. Pours clear amber, thin off-white head. Aromas of caramel and apples, light sugar. Taste is sweet. Finishes clean enough. Bit boring to be honest.

JohnRMurdoch (3850) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - OCT 4, 2013
Cask @ Troon beer Festival. Reddish amber brown, decent head. Dry grain malt aroma. Dry grain flavour. Watery with bitter aftertaste. Bland, just drinkable.

mr_h (3739) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - OCT 3, 2013
Cask by handpump at Troon Beer Festival - clear dark amber, no head, mild raisin, malty aroma, raisin toffee, very thin texture, peculiar aftertaste

Nuffield (3892) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JUL 21, 2012
A very simple beer: malty, caramel in front, middle and finish, with a smooth palate and a classic rich golden color. Fine; not fancy or flashy, and it didn’t really appeal much to me. (cask at Scottish Real Ale Festival, Edinburgh, June 2012)

On cask at the Scottish Real Ale Festival, 2012. Pours a dark golden colour with a fair white head. Aroma of caramel, grassy hops, yeast and alcohol. Similar flavours with mild carbonation and a foamy mouth-feel.
