larsga (6260) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 20, 2010
Medium coarse offwhite head. Brown body. Faint malty sugary aroma. Delicate sweet-dry malty roasty wooden taste with resiny floral notes. Mild, smooth mouthfeel. Mid-bodied. Dry roasty caramelly aftertaste with dandelion floral notes. Nice, subtle, and drinkable. (0.33l cask at Akkurat, and at some Bishop’s Arms pub.)

Svesse (6231) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - AUG 23, 2008
(Cask at GBBF, London, 6 Aug 2008) Copper colour with brief, white head. Malty, fruity nose with apricots and earthy, dusty hops. Fruity taste with notes of apricots, orange and generous doses of earthy hops in a fairly bitter finish. Solid malt foundation. Fairly dry. Probably not the best beer in Britain, but still nice.

swoopjones (6106) - Buffalo, New York, USA - SEP 24, 2009
Cask @ The Harp, London. Caramel colored pour, medium bitterness, very well balanced between caramel malts & bitterness. running out of ways to describe beers that pretty much taste pretty similar.

DonMagi (5596) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 15, 2007
Blackfriers. Aroma was fruity, hints of citrus and light toffee notes as it warms. Taste is good biscuity/hionts of toffee malt base with a good citrus grassyness cutting through making it very very sessionable.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 30, 2004
Cask@Catford beer Festival. OK, hoppy, lemony, lightly grainy, some good flavour in here, but not overly interesting.

SaintMatty (5483) - 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.

SilkTork (5250) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 1, 2003
UPDATED: JAN 3, 2014
Nov, 2003Cask, Crown & Thistle, Gravesend. A wonderful pub - great range of real ales, and a humming atmosphere; well kept. This is a ginger amber coloured beer. Some lemon flavour. Earthy hops tending towards stale. Fruity finish. Some plum - but hops come in too early and dominate. Fragrant lemon up front, then the plum is introduced. Brown sugar and yeasty fruit aroma. Comes across as a poor attempt at a Summer Pale Ale. Probably near the end of the cask. [2.4]
Jan, 2014 275ml dark brown bottle. Unfiltered. Gift from Zelie. Good bottle conditioning, this tastes fresh and yeasty. The malt is really tasty, and quite full and fruity for a 3.8% beer. I’ve had plenty of 5%+ beers, particularly cool fermented beers, that didn’t have anywhere near this much malt character and body. The hops, though, are a little too bold for my taste. I would say the hops, while assertive, don’t over dominate due to the very decent malt presence, but I’m simply not someone who enjoys the flavour of hops. With this beer, the hop taste lingers long after the rest of the beer is simply a memory. It’s a damn fine beer - but just not one for me. [2.8]

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - AUG 29, 2010
cask @ Wenlock. Nice amber hue with decent lacing. Big fruity malt aroma. Juicy body. Long bitter finish. Is balanced with a toasty edge and has great subtleties.
