[Gravity cask at Back of Beyond (JDW), Reading] Amber, slight white head. Sweet lots of caramel, a little wisp of citrus, just enough bitterness to balance. OK, but not great.

Beese (2570) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 23, 2014
Cask at The Moon Under Water (JDW), Watford on 8 Nov 2012. Poured a slightly hazy copper, with a dense white head. Aroma of flat malt, caramel and light tropical fruits. Fairly lacking in flavour; a little grassy hop, toffee and toasted malt. Finish was funky, with cooked fruit and mild acidity. Not in great condition.

jjsint (2379) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - AUG 20, 2014
Cask at the Philharmonic, Liverpool. Copper and clear with a thin loose beige head. Very muted aroma of malt, raisins, biscuit. Deep fruity bitter initial taste with sweetness taking over quite quickly. Medium body. Abrupt finish. A beer that delivers well enough but doesn’t inspire. I can’t imagine wanting another one.

GuideDogSaint (1192) - Xiamen, CHINA - AUG 4, 2014
Cask at the Prince of Wales Feathers, Warren Street. Pours mid brown with a white head. Aroma malt, caramel and a hint of citrus. A little sweet on the palate. Maybe a little past it’s best.

AshtonMcCobb (5408) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 23, 2014
On cask at the Haymarket. Appearance - dark amber to chestnut. Nice fluffy head. Nose - sweet malt with a fresh note that is somewhere between citrus and orchard. Taste - more apples plus sweet malt and just a touch of citrus again. Palate - medium bodied with a creamy texture and a long elegant finish. Overall - really enjoyed this. Beer of the day.
