garthicus (2655) - Dublin, IRELAND - FEB 17, 2014
On cask at JWD Victoria Station. Appearance: Amber orange, small off white head. Aroma: grassy, a twist of lemon too. Quite unremarkable. Flavour: lots and lots of fresh cut grass, quite a decent amount of bitter hops too with a long bitter grassy finish.

maeib (8579) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JUL 28, 2012
Cask conditioned handpump Slug & Lettuce Leicester 20/07/12. A golden beer with a whitish head and lacing. Phenolic harshness in the mouth. It seems to be aiming for crisp bitterness but doesn’t get there. It’s similar in the nose but less harsh and better grassy bitterness. Probably not 100% as intended.

Finwe (412) - Grankulla, FINLAND - JUL 18, 2012
Cask @ Black Door, Helsinki. Amber-coloured with a dense off-white head. Aroma of some fruits, mainly apricot, and malt. Floral flavour with the malt and apricots present. Hint of caramel malt with somewhat roasted character. Hoppy bitterness in the finish. Not bad, but not one of the best, either.

SaintMatty (5083) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - SEP 10, 2009
Cask (Guide Dog, Southampton) - Amber/copper coloured. Fruity aroma with raisins, caramel and a hint of spicy malt. Fruity, malty and grainy taste with some hoppy hints.

imdownthepub (9954) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 24, 2009
Cask conditioned at The Railway Tavern, Alton. Copper with white head. Quite a tangy hoppy beer with a rusk biscuit body, some fruitiness, quite odd but reasonably drinkable.

RichardW (1451) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - JUL 15, 2009
Cask, Pennyblacks, Birmingham UK. Pale, more grapefruit aroma than lemon, I thought, sharp, zingy, hoppy and fruity. Not bad, but nothing outstanding.

berkshirejohn (4381) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 26, 2009
Cask at the Monks Retreat (JDW), Reading. Golden coloured with a dense off-white head; peach aroma; light and fruity with apricot and peach flavours and soft and sweet mouth feel; sustained, gently bitter finish. Very drinkable.

DruncanVeasey (7099) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JUN 8, 2009
Cask gravity, The Crown Summer BF 09, Nuneaton. Headless iced tea looks. Unassertive apple, sultana and sappy dandelion aroma. Soft grassy hop, bread and biscuit with a bitter soapy linger softened with digestives. OK but nothing I’d rush back to.
