Travlr (15918) - 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.

Cask at the Gunmakers. Fine malty body, some fruit and biscuits. Rather short bitter finish. Decent bitter, but nothing remarkable.

Homebrew. Clear amber with a good head which stayed the course. Very drinkable as a session ale. Much loved by friends who tasted it.

weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - JUL 2, 2009
Pleasantly surprised when I bought this to while away a few minutes waiting for my tea staying at a premier inn in Norfolk. Nice amount of citrus and hops with malts in the finish. Very drinkable and my drink of choice when I’ve got to visit the stinking pile of rubbish that is our Norfolk office.

Orangey amber witha faily frothy white head. A crisp fresh hop aroma with a slightly fruity taste, balanced well by a dry malt finish.

DruncanVeasey (7635) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - APR 19, 2009
Cask, Dykes End, Reach, Cambridgeshire. Yellowy amber with a white halo. Passion fruit, lemon rind and leafy fresh hop aroma. Never expected that. Flavour rounded out with lingering bread and biscuit. Quietly beautiful.

JDW @ Victoria Station. Poured a hazed amber with an off white head. Grassy, metallic hops and sweet malts in the nose. Taste is much the same, grassy with sweet biscuity malts and a honey note. Quite well balanced and quaffable.
