hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 5, 2010
Cask at Wellington Arms, Bedford. Gold with a small white head. Delicate leafy floral hop aroma, revealing a hint of lime and some malt. Pleasant rounded woody malt taste with hints of plastic and a mid bitter finish. Unusual golden, quite good.

FatPhil (14012) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 31, 2010
Cask (The New Wheatsheaf, London)
5 Simple sweet malts, not beery enough.
3 Pale orange, almost no head.
5 Simple malty body. No guts, no bite.
3 Watery.
10 Wooly - probably on its way off? Had some better things from Ufford, so I’ll give them the benefit of the doubt.

Cask@The New Wheatsheaf, London. Amber colour, small off-white head. Aroma is fruits, wood, some mild yeastyness as well as some mild caramel malts. Flavour is very much the same with some quite bready and earthy notes.

ladnewton (1811) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 28, 2009
Cask via handpump at the Pembur Tavern on 18th November 2009 during their festival. Gold with diminishing white head. Strong grapefruit hop, rather like in an APA but rather flat textured although deliciously hoppy.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JUN 2, 2009
Cask conditioned gravity dispense Northants BF. A golden coloured beer with an obvious US hop influence. Clean and orangey; almost a maramlade feel but a tad thinner than that. Good flavours and nose. Ufford do some good stuff.
