omhper (23483) - Tyresö, - AUG 29, 2007
Cask at Peterborough Beer Fest. Amber colour. Resiny hoppy nose. Medium dry and meedium bodied with rounded mouthfeel. Some caramelly malt flavours, but resiny hops dominate - especially in the finish.

jjsint (2333) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - AUG 25, 2016
Handpull cask at the Five Bells, Tydd St Mary. Md-brown with a hint of red. Clear with a small amount of off-white head. Woody and slightly astringent smell with a good dose of malt. Strong medicinal bitter taste. A hint of sourness in the finish. Good enough but hard to get overly excited about. Nice to have it about 1.5 miles from the brewery.

Draught (Maypole, Camdbridge)
Slight sout hint in aroma. Weird sweet beaniness. Just as beany in the taste too. A simple pale bitter, but way too beany.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 11, 2008
Cask, gravity, at Bedford Beer Festival ’08. Copper with a small white head. Initially I detected an odd bacon aroma. Taste was sweet with a hint of stale cardboard suggesting that all was not right here. Slight bitterness.

chriso (7513) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 14, 2008
Cask (gravity dispense), St Albans Beer Festival, September 2007. A best bitter that was quite hard to pin down in terms of the individual elements but hit the spot just right. Certainly some flowery hops. A touch of dry malt. A good bitter mouthfeel. Nothing out of the ordinary there but the overall package was spot on. Exemplary stuff. Shame I can’t explain why a bit better.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 1, 2007
A Mes rate: Gravicask at St. Albans Beer Festival. Golden brown with a slim white head and some pretty good condition. Straight down the line tobacco, malt and nice sharp hops and very tasty with it.

harrisoni (17282) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 30, 2007
Cask gravity at St Albans BF 2007. Amber colour with lasting bubbly beige. Yeast, hop, some malt. Good bitter, got everything I would want from an English bitter. Good tingly hop on tip of tongue. Best English straight bitter of the day. Good toffee.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - AUG 26, 2007
Cask conditioned - gravity dispense - Peterborough BF. A copper/orange coloured beer with a whitish head. The aroma is fruity and has citrus smelling hops. The taste is nicely hoppy with fruity and biscuity malts. Tasty.

StueyD (1566) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - JUL 23, 2007
A mid brown to orange coloured beer with a weak white head. A mainly malty nose, hints of caramel and liquorice, followed by a mildly zesty, fruit aroma. A very bitter taste, dry and malty flavour, caramel and liquorice again, then a zesty, lemony hop flavour in the end. The finish is bitter. (Cask - The Fox & Hounds Summer Beer Festival 2007, Heacham, Norfolk).
