Osprey87 (2049) - WALES - SEP 7, 2014
Cask at the Queens Head Kings Cross. Mahogany brown, hazy, still, small ring of white head. Aroma is sharp, malty, redcurrent. Body is medium, smooth, low carbonation. Taste is tangy strawberry jam(maybe one that’s been in the cupboard a year or so), yeasty wet bread, pretzel, card, drying, soft bitterness. It’s OK, just not my sort of thing.

patrick767 (3606) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - JUN 11, 2014
cask at Market Porter in London, review from many years ago - Pours a light amber color with a thin, frothy, long lasting head. It has a mild, malty aroma and tastes of caramel malt with mild bitterness. It’s a straightforward, easy drinking beer.

MesandSim (7118) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 15, 2009
A Mes rate: Cask at the White Horse.
Amazing bright amber colour, no head but it’s not a problem. Straight forward UK hoppy stuff with a faint mineral note and a pleasing lick of grapefruit especially in the finish. Straight forward but tasty and drinkable.

sm89walt (1780) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAY 23, 2009
Cask - The Old Brewery Tavern Beer ’Festival’, Canterbury. Pours a clear, light amber with a creamy layer of white carbonation that soon dissipates. Sweet caramel malt aromas with notes of orange and the flavours have a sweet and fruity quality with a nice dry hoppy balance. Dry bitter finish leading to a nutty aftertaste. Refreshingly smooth body with a lingering palate texture.
