imdownthepub (9991) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 13, 2013
Cask conditioned at The Royal Blenheim, Oxford. Amber with white head. Dry, light biscuity, malty body, some graininess a little flowery. Itís ok without getting exciting.

Cask (Maypole, Cambridge)
Whatís so imperial about a 3.8% bitter? This is just a pretty standard rich malty bitter, thatís all.

DruncanVeasey (7112) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JAN 5, 2013
Handpulled at..youíve guessed it. Honey amber skimmed with white. Honey and lemon throatsweets, pinecone, tea, soft leafy hopcone aroma. Honey tempered with robust hop bitterness if not flavour; long, dunked butter biscuit malt finish; Weetabix and aniseed hints. Very pleasant accompaniment to a jenga of Sheffield sleepers (chunky chips, lad). Good length and malt.

500ml bottle from Boothís, Ilkley (£1.15- I was robbed). Pours still, brilliant gold almost like apple juice with a fleeting skim of head. Metallic dog aroma sprinkled with tea, caramel..a needle of pine. Dour, uninteresting beer with a honeyed metal, caramel-dabbed pine and tea feel. Decent creamy afters, light ferny hop, low condition. Wonít revisit at half the price.

Theydon_Bois (7935) - The íSham, Surrey, ENGLAND - SEP 2, 2012
Cask at either (notes didnít say!) The Victoria or the Merchants Inn, Rugby - 25/07/12. Clear amber medium white head. Mild floral hops and a touch of grain on the nose. Pale malts in the taste a little bread and fruit. Lightish body, average bitter.

worldbeertaste (1607) - AUSTRIA - JUN 8, 2012
Pale brown copper with a thing diminishing white head. Smells of caramel malt, nut, toffee and a berry (cranberry or fruitjuice). Full oily butter body. Sweet taste of ripe fruit and caramel with berry. Some citrus and floral finish. Wonderful alternative to a traditional bitter. Good change.

BlackHaddock (3488) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 7, 2012
Posh label on a 500ml bottle: this beer was first produced in cask form but the brewery thought it would sell in bottles too! My bottle was poured into a UK pint sleeve: looks a lovely sight, good amber body with a full white bubbley crown on top. The head left some lacing as it died with the beer level. No huge aromas, some maltiness, with a soft, mellow fruity hint. The taste was mildly of malts, just outdoing a hop bitterness, fruity like the smell as well. The mouth does dry quickly though, not an attribute Iím overly keen on, unless Iím expecting an extra hoppy beer. Plenty of flavours to chew over for a 3.8% ABV beer, just not my sort of brew really: canít put my finger on it, but it just doesnít do it for me.

Cask conditioned Handpump Malt Shovel Northampton. A copper coloured beer with an off-white head and lacing. A farty aroma and a grassy taste. A bit of citrus sneaking in, but it has a dirty water feel to it. Disappointing.
