MesandSim (7118) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 28, 2009
A Mes rate. Cask at Baker St ’Sporks. Hazy, dirty golden brown with a sliver of white on top. Quite citric, lots of mineral notes and a faint lick of caramel. Faint bitterness in the finish. Another amazingly average offering from Tring.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 12, 2009
Cask at ’Spoons, Milton Keynes. Copper with an off white head. Buttery malt aroma. Taste has some fruit, possibly unripe pear lurking in the earthy malt. Indistinct, evanescent beer which is hard to pin down.

fiulijn (15310) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 11, 2009
<i>Cask Conditioned at The Pembury Tavern, London</i>
Amber color. Aroma of caramel, sweet, and fruity hops (not so strong, but very nice). Good sweetish caramel and toffee flavor, missing probably a bolder body, but with a good creamy and fruity hopping. Also this one is lacking some punch, mainly in the end, but it’s good.

<i>Cask at the Three Guineas, Reading.</i> Gold with a thin white head; biscuit aroma; crisp malt flavour with some orange fruit; gently bitter, clean finish.

Cask 2nd South Shields Beer Fest A nice copper coloured beer, small head with an aroma of sweet fruity malt and spicy hops, same goes for the taste with a nice dry smooth finish.

Handpulled cask at The One Crown, Watford. Mid brown with a small white head. Fairly fruity, subtle malt and hops. Nothing special.
