AshtonMcCobb (5241) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 11, 2015
Bottle thanks to allmyvinyl. Appearance - a lovely lava colour. A nice fluffy head. Nose - pancakes and syrup. Taste - wood and then syrup again. Bitter salad leaves. Then wood tannins return. Palate - medium bodied with a creamy texture and a long dry woody tannic finish. Overall - gnarly but good.

DruncanVeasey (8012) - NUNEATON, 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.

MesandSim (7117) - 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.
