BlackHaddock (4687) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 30, 2015
29th April 2015: rebadged as a house ale at The Kinnersley Arms, Leighton Shropshire (manager confirmed the real name when pressed). This is a decent session ale, light brown to amber in colour with a full white head on my hand-pulled pint. Blend of uncomplicated hops and malts with a mild aroma and a slightly bittering finish. Nothing unusual or special, just a nice easy drinking beer.

RichTheVillan (4163) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - JAN 23, 2015
Cask at the Old Joint Stock; clear golden yellow pour with a small frothy white head, tiniest hint of lemon on the aroma, taste is very bland, feint citrus pale malts a bit watery.

leaparsons (8711) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 1, 2013
Cask, The King’s Head, Leicester. Golden with a white foam. Aromas are funky apple with caramel and biscuit. Lightly nutty with lemon and yeast. Flavours are bittersweet lemon with yeast and some barnyard notes. Base caramel with a peppery finish. Seems different to the bottled version so not sure what condition this is in. Reasonable.

jackl (5474) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - DEC 18, 2011
Amber with an airy, modest head. The nose is sweet - lightly toasted malts, apples, some caramel, light acid. The taste is moderately bitter with a dry acidic finish. The palate’s a bit chewy, the body medium. Overall, an OK mediocre bitter.

oh6gdx (22073) - Vasa, FINLAND - NOV 27, 2011
Cask@Market Porter, London. Orangeish golden colour with a mediumsized fluffy head that settles into a small creamy one quite fast. Leaves some slight lace. Aroma is bready malts, some sweet malts and also a nice fruity and floral hoppyness to it. Flavour is citrusy, mildly nectary and also has some grassy bitterness as well as a nice malty body to it. Well balanced and refreshing.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 15, 2011
Cask at ’Spoons, Milton Keynes. Amber with a white head. Sugary boiled sweet aroma. Taste is intensely grainy and muesli-like, perhaps a little too much so. Some bitterness.

6 Dusty aroma, killed by the sparkler head.
3+ Rich amber, sparkler head.
7 Some milky grains, very fruity hops - apple, peach and apricot. Lots of bitterness in the hops too.
4 Soft palate, carbonation low. Resiny persistent bitter finish, some pungency too.
14 Great simple bitter. Good one Woods!
