DonMagi (5594) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 8, 2008
Cask in statebar. Aroma is balanced biscuity malts with orange and grassy notes. Taste is similar, light body, perfect for sessioning, though perhaps a bit more hop as i can taste exactly what the beers is made with, if that makes sence.

Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - NOV 16, 2006
Cask, Turf Tavern, Oxford. Shiny copper with beautiful milk white foam, fine around the edges, coarse in the middle. Truely a glorious pint to behold. Delicate, flowery aroma, oranges and apples. Very soft and pretty. Slowly building marmalade bitterness, tart plum esters, soft malt. A delicate but wonderfully flavorful beer.

Joeh (2049) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUN 13, 2006
Cask conditioned at Catford beer festival. Slightly hazy gold. Tea like aroma with some citric hop. Flavour is again tea like, tannin dryness and muddy. Odd, very odd. What is it with Catford and tea?

harrisoni (16927) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 10, 2006
UPDATED: FEB 11, 2008 Cask gravity at Catford BF 06. Hazy gold with thin white head. Maybe coming to the end. Interesting tea hop aroma. Quite earthy in mouth with harsh muddy hop on end. Should be terrible but for some reason isn’t. Still, not great. 2.5/5 Cask handpull, St Aldates, Oxford, RB Pub crawl 08. Decent grassy little bitter. Nice dryness on the end. Bit of fruit. Nice golden session bitter.
