jmgreenuk (4103) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUN 2, 2013
Cask at The Mason’s Arms, Solihull. Poured a dark chestnut brown with a frothy white head. The aroma is weak malt leading to a medium bitter flavour with a little liqourice and lots of smooth malt on the palate. This remains a top session beer.

jjsint (663) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 26, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2013 Charlie Wells staple. Fruity best bitter. Pours ruddy brown, aroma of biscuits and raisins. Taste is malty yet satisfyingly bitter finish. Lost a bit of its power after ABV reduction from 4.3% to 4.1%, but still very flavourful. Must be served well, can be a bit unforgiving otherwise.

SaintMatty (5110) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - MAY 22, 2013
Cask (Burley Inn, Burley) - Brown in colour. Dried fruit, malt and caramel in the aroma. Fruity and moderately bitter taste with fruitcake, spicy malt and caramel detected.

Lilja (1553) - Malmö, SWEDEN - APR 14, 2013
Smak och doft av humle, malt. Frisk, syrlig men lite för bitter och för lite eftersmak. Tunn kropp.

ralphdot (982) - Billingham, Durham, ENGLAND - APR 11, 2013
4.1%, deep amber colour with a good head, fruity aroma, fruity caramel taste, good beer, on draught in bottles or in cans, I like it.
