harrisoni (12674) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 14, 2010
Cask handpull at The Ship & Mitre, Liverpool. Amber colour with lasting beige head. Decent biscuit, good malts, good amber ale, seems a popular style now in the UK. Lots of digestive biscuit on finish. Touch of caramel. I love proper amber ales. Sweetish in mouth, good dry biscuit. I love it. Just needs some good hop on the end, but as it is, really drinkable.

imdownthepub (9636) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 10, 2011
Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Copper with white head. This was so cold it hurt my teeth, I suspect the temperature was being used to mask a tiring beer. Sweet maltiness with a little burnt caramel in the background, smooth and reasonably full, but didn’t get a roasty note. It’s ok.

leaparsons (7801) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 23, 2011
Cask, William Wygston, Wigston. Hazy brown with a beige thin foam. Aromas are weetabix and chocolate with raisins and bready yeast. Lightly roasted with hints of berry. Flavours are sweet toffee malts with caramel and cream. Lightly fruity with dry black tea. Served acidentally without a sparkler but all the better for it.

Rune (7355) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JAN 30, 2013
Cask, full pint with the food at JDW Manchester & County. Nitro, creamy, off-white head with fine lacework blanketing the glass. Near-clear, dark amber coloured body. Aroma of mid-sweet malts and leafy hops. Taste of leafy hops mingled with chocolate and nuts. Bitter ending. Medium to thin bodied. Ok partner to the food (Manchester, 21.01.2013).

Fin (7030) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 6, 2010
Cask, handpump at The Hop Pole, Aylesbury, Bucks, 04.08.10 Pours reddy/amber with white head, good nick, good clarity. Fruity and toffee flavours abound but there is little else, not getting much bitterness, not getting much of a bite, but it is perfectly fine and is slipping down well. A6 A4 T6 P4 Ov12 3.2

DruncanVeasey (6950) - NUNEATON, Top 24, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - OCT 9, 2011
Gravity, Hinckley 2011, 16/09/11. Dirty copper with a fleeting ring of bubbles. Barely distinguishable caramelised sugar, watery apple fruit aroma. More flavour with a soft plummy streak, dunked Hobnob notes, sultana, even a dab of demerara-sweetened milky coffee. Decent enough, just feels a bit unfinished and watery in the finish.
