thewolf (10789) - Kolding, DENMARK - OCT 1, 2011
Cask @ Charlies Bar, Cph.
Clear nutty amber with a small, nice, staying, creamy, yellowish head. Mild fat aroma, light berries and grass, good caramel. Medium carbonation, nice creamy and rather dry mouthfeel. Flavour is very nice, nuts, biscuits, dark chocolate and caramel. Light toasted, some tartish liqourice and berries. Reminds me of a very dry Fullers 1845. Lovely.

Scopey (5548) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 6, 2011
Gravity at the Grape and Grain Spring Beer Festival 2011. It pours amber with low carbonation and a thin off-white head. The nose is wood, dark fruit and berries and caramel. The taste is oak, varnish, vanilla, red berries, apricot, lemon peel and parma violets, with a boozy, wood finish. Decent old-style strong ale.

Cask Conditioned Gravity Dispense St Albans BF 2010. An amber coloured beer with off-white wisps of head. A fruity aroma with berries and wood. Fruity malts in the mouth. A nice old fashioned stronger English ale which is nicely boozy.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 25, 2010
A Mes rate: Cask at the Market (No) Porter.
Semi hazy amber gold with a thin white film topping. Big and fruity with some candy sugar and barley. The extra booze is showing slightly but itís not killing it. Sugary finish with some late dryness. Lots of length. Straight forward but enjoyable.

DruncanVeasey (6950) - NUNEATON, Top 24, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAR 17, 2009
Cask handpull, SIBA Championsí Fest 09. Aroma mint sauce, meat stock, jellied red fruit, wood and sweat. Thatís what my semi-legible scribblings say, anyway. Had about 20 after hours halves lined up by this stage like a mad scientist, and things were starting to get a bit...shabby. Rummy wood notes, chew of raisin, light body, hint of aniseedy spice maybe. Dryish hop finish. Odd but enjoyable.

SilkTork (5123) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 25, 2009
Dover Beer Fest. A typical well made old fashioned, characterful, hoppy premium bitter from Westerham. They are a damn fine brewery. It must be the yeast. Great character. It must be the brewer. Well balanced. Great brew.

sm89walt (1716) - Northern Beaches, Sydney, AUSTRALIA - FEB 8, 2009
Cask - White Cliffs Beer Festival. A dark ruby red colour with a fine beige head. Strawberry aromas and a malty caramel character. More berries in the taste on a thickish body. A smooth mouthfeel and a dry fruit finish.
