leaparsons (7923) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 12, 2003
Ah, the might Traquair house. Shame this is a let down. Aromas are light grain and some spice. The flavour is the trouble - thin malts, watery with a chalky, not bitter, finish. Give me the House Ale!

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 25, 2007
A Mes rate: Cask at the White Horse.
Ruby amber colour with an oily film. Malty and metallic aroma with some very slight sour fruit. More metallic notes in the flavour. A big let down considering the quality usually associated with this brewery. Given a little while to open up after pouring it gives up some caramel and tobacco and the metallic note has all but gone. So so at best.

larsga (6120) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 17, 2009
Medium white creamy head. Faintly hazy coppery body. Fruity wooden aroma with vinegary notes. Dry-sweet perfumy caramelly fruit taste with wooden roasty notes. Mild, smooth mouthfeel. Mid-bodied. Dry-acidic fruity caramel aftertaste with wooden notes. Not bad. (0.25l cask, Guildford Arms, Edinburgh.)

Svesse (6036) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - AUG 30, 2008
(Cask at White Horse, Parson’s Green, London, 9 Aug 2008) Dark amber colour with frothy, off-white head. Malty, nutty nose with notes of dark fruit. Malty taste with dark fruit, nuts, toffee and a decent earthy bitterness in the finish. Good balance. Very nice beer.
