SaintMatty (6844) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JAN 15, 2009
Cask (Railway Arms, Alton) - Amber/gold in colour. Malty and slightly fruity aroma. The taste is grainy at first with malt dominating but then becomes more hoppy with citrus notes being evident in the finish.

<i>2008-11-12, Cask Conditioned at The Castle, Furnival St., London, 6-4-6-3-13=32</i>
Hazy copper color. It has a malty and lightly fruity aroma; flavor of malt and caramel, with some residual sweetness, and good bitterness level. First impression confirmed.

<i>2008-11-03, Cask Conditioned at J.D. Wetherspoon - Shakespear’s Head, London, 6-3-7-3-13=32</i>
Light amber color, thin head. The aroma is light. It has a delicate, pleasant flavor, with caramel, lightly flowery and grassy; very light metallic touch too. Correct bitterness. A bit of originality, but quite simple.

DruncanVeasey (8012) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - DEC 4, 2008
UPDATED: SEP 7, 2010 1) Faversham Spoons. Tawny amber with white halo. Lime and leafy hops on the nose. Surprisingly earthy citrus hop with a gnaw of chlorophyll. Bit soily. Clean, abrupt and bitter on the end. Good balancing vanilla, tea and honeyish malt. Lemony, earthy, solidly hopped. Touch of malt nuttiness. Tasty. 2) The Red Lion, Burbage. Caramel, choc, slight hop hum aroma. Brass with draped white lid. Lots of earth, wood sap, mouldy choc. Bittersweet creamy nut linger. Nice. 737313.

Handpulled cask at JDW Ickenham. Light amber with a short lived white head. Pleasent but so ordinary considering its champion status.

sm89walt (1972) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - NOV 27, 2008
Cask - West Gate Inn JDW, Canterbury. Light, reddy brown with a thin, readily dissipating ashy-white head. Quite a bitter fruit aroma along with tobacco and cedar. A spicy, piney, grapefruity flavour profile with a, lip-smacking bitter finish. A soft mouthfeel and a rounded session bitter in all.

cach0rr0 (2) - , Berkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2008 does not count
On the weaker side, but an amazing finish. This beer could be a dessert, as it has just the right mix of bitter, and almost buttery flavour. I loved it, shame I can’t find it anywhere.

Liquid autumn color. Apricot nose. Body is med, fairly malty with apricots and apples. Straight forward all the way.
