Cask; Regular.
Three different malts and three different hops blend together for a meeting of drinkable mystery.

CapedBrewsader (265) - Brasschaat, BELGIUM - JUN 16, 2008
33cl swing-top bottle at home: Hazy gold with hints of brown. Thin filmy head dissipates even further to a small collection of bubbles. Some lightly oxidized malt on top of toast. Low fig and raisin mix well with the toast and oxidation. Flavor of deep running toasted malt and raisin. Good herbal hop note. Biscuity. The oxidation is less noticeable in the mouth than on the nose. It also seems to add some good complexity, but shouldn’t really be allowed to develop more or it could become too much.

berkshirejohn (4534) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 7, 2008
330ml swing-top bottle from Plonkers, Friarsgate, Derby - 5% ABV. Explosive on opening, but settling to give a brilliant golden body with a thin white head; rich, buttery, apricot aroma; rather watery with little flavour, but a slightly spicy finish. Rather a let down after an encouraging start.

johndoughty (3994) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JAN 28, 2007
Bottle bought from a deli in Ludlow just before Christmas 2006. Lovely swing top bottle that makes it stand out. The strength on the label was 5 per cent.Lovely fresh hoppiness with a gentle dry finnish that lingers for some time.A classy bitter.

Cask Handpump at the Smithfield Hotel, Manchester 29/01/2005 Amber golden coloured with hoppy and fruit aromas. Slightly bitter dry malt finish.

Nekronos (3633) - Xalapa, MEXICO - JAN 15, 2006
The same as other bitter beers, it is a little bubbling rather than foamy, it is pale and very bitter, but not really to have a good time, it is not bad but a little boring.

chriso (7365) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 30, 2005
Cask (gravity dispense) at St Albans Beer festival, October 2005. Mid brown with a reddish tinge. Lots of treacle and caramel. Low bitterness. Not bad, but not really my favoured style. Could do with a few more hops.

kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - OCT 24, 2005
Cask @ St Albans 05: Amber in colour. Mildly malty bitter with some nice hops in the finish. Drinkable.

harrisoni (13737) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 3, 2005

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 2, 2005
Cask@Crosse Keys, Central London. Crystal malt sweetness, sweetish, but finishes dry enough, quite a wholegrain crackery malt flavour, with a touch of hops. Some toffee and mollasses, OK i suppose.

maeib (8726) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - MAY 20, 2005
Cask conditioned - handpump - JDW Northampton. An amber to light brown coloured beer. The aroma is fruity hops and the taste is bitter hops. It is a crisp clean fresh tasting easy drinking beer. Wilds brewery used to brew out of West Yorkshire but ceased a number of years ago. They have now restarted in Herefordshire. Their beers were consistrntly good previously and now it seems they are just as acceptable.
