ladnewton (1813) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 31, 2010
Gravity cask at the Duke of Wellington, London on 30 July 2010. Clear copper with offwhite foam head and virtually no lacing. Fruity (berries) aroma with mainly berry friuts and malts in main kick, but a developing bitter finish. Light textured mouthfeel. Strangely likeable.

Alphadelic (2171) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 4, 2009
Strong brown colour with a thin and clingy white head. Savoury aromas of light roast chicken and potatoes! Clean, crisp bitters on the tongue with roasty barnyard flavours. Followed by a bold and rich cereal finish. It’s smooth, if a little thin, making it darned drinkable. Great little session. Tasty and fulfilling. Nasal, warming and wholesome.

A Mes rate. Cask at Bar Fringe. Dark golden brown with a thin white head and good condition. Decent fruity and bready malt with some full on citric hoppage. Well balanced with a dry citric finish. Enjoyable if not outstanding.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 11, 2008
Cask, gravity, at Bedford BF ’08. Amber with a small off white head. Faint malt aroma. Rough, shaggy malt taste and slight bitterness. It was quite good in a crude sort of way.
