tdtm82 (1699) - Essex, ENGLAND - NOV 2, 2010
Cask, The United Beveren, Chelmsford. Can’t think this one was on top condition. White lacing which is good, golden appearance, floral and perfume nose, grapefruit body, lightly hopped. stringent and doughy yeast, cheesy, ok bitterness, some sulphuric or chemical element which is off-putting, medium finish which is a little fruity but just bland and boring.

Kicked cask spoiled the sampling. Vinegary aroma and taste. Couldn’t finish it.

gary07734 (500) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - APR 4, 2010
Classic pale blonde pint, decent white head. Drinks fairly light and easy going, slightly citrus and grain with a mild bitter finish. Decent enough lightweight beer.

nate2g (1548) - Boomtown!, AUSTRALIA - MAR 12, 2010
Cask @ Gunmakers, London. Golden with thin white head. Grainy malt with light fruit, grass and dirt. Thin body and lacking balance. Not much going on with this one.

Jonte (1413) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - JAN 31, 2010
Cask. The Gunmakers, London. Amber/dark golden colour with a white head. Fresh, lightly floral and fruity, some biscuity maltiness. Easy drinking bitter.

Travlr (20257) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JAN 22, 2010
From notes dated 1997. Cask in Bury. Amber color with a large white head that settles slowly to leave decent lacing. Aroma of floral hops, apples and caramel. Flavor is dominated by malt, but also light spice and a nice bitter finish. Nicely complex.

KnutAlbert (6621) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 16, 2009
Cask at the Gunmakers. Fine malty body, some fruit and biscuits. Rather short bitter finish. Decent bitter, but nothing remarkable.

Minesamild (2) - , Berkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 9, 2009 does not count
Homebrew. Clear amber with a good head which stayed the course. Very drinkable as a session ale. Much loved by friends who tasted it.
