yespr (31220) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - NOV 11, 2012
From cask at The Crystal Palace. Pours clear and golden amber with a small off white head. Aroma is toasted malty, breadish and towards caramelish. Overripe fruity, breadish and toffee malty. Vague liqourice note. Medium dry, bitter and toasted malty finish.

Martin243 (773) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - OCT 27, 2012
Pinty at ’spoons Gateshead. Red amber with a white head. Coppery dry flavour, developing with a bit of sweet juicy caramel fruit and nut toffee, but nothing outstanding or new and challenging. Conservative robust bitter, that does what it says on the tin.

stravale (2103) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - OCT 19, 2012
Cask @ JDW Elgin 181012
Copper caramel reddish brown, dense white head, some lacing
Aroma - caramel, toffee malts, soft cereal malts
Taste - caramel malts, soft toffee, soft toasted malts, touch of butter biscuit malt, light English bitter hops, good flavour but a little bit too subtle
Palate - soft carb, thin to medium body, Finish of dark caramel malts, soft bitter hop finish
Overall - More of a premium bitter to me. Pretty OK

harrisoni (13737) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 17, 2010
Cask handpull at County Hotel, JDW, Ashford. Very dark brown, lasting beige head. It’s a sweetish biscuit strong bitter some caramel without being too diacetyl. Very good biscuit. Malty aroma. It’s quite tasty and pretty decent. Drinkable. Good biscuit. Bit of dryness on end but I do like the malt.

DruncanVeasey (7191) - NUNEATON, Top 18, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - SEP 7, 2010
Cask back at The Postal Order (JDW), Worcester, having tamely surrendered 2 points to the 10 man Dragons, and been lucky to get away with that. Copper, slim cream slick. Coins and pine cone aroma. Hints of dough and bread, ash at the back, cream, soapiness. Just another bitter.

oh6gdx (20333) - Vasa, FINLAND - SEP 5, 2010
Cask@one of the spoons between Victoria station and Pimlico. Murky reddish brown colour with a small off-white head. Aroma is dark dry fruits, some mild caramel malts as well as some fudge and wood. Flavour is quite much the same with the wooden notes being more evident.

sm89walt (1756) - Northern Beaches, Sydney, AUSTRALIA - AUG 27, 2010
UPDATED: SEP 20, 2011 Cask - The Bell Hotel (JDW), Norwich. A clear & dark chestnut brown beer with a medium size, lasting, creamy beige head. Soapy overtones with underlying notes of caramel & bready, toasty malts on the nose. Initially roasty, some soapiness and metallic tones and an almost pasteurised sweetness. Smooth, creamy palate, light to medium body with a short finish. 5/3/5/3/10 Cask (gravity) - The Fat Cat Brewery Tap/The Cider Shed, Norwich. Fine, lasting bubbly beige head; deep chestnut brown body. Toasty, tobacco and roasted profile. Some mid fruit tang, yeast & earth on the tongue particularly. Softish, light to medium body, lingering dryish malty bittersweet finish.

berkshirejohn (4534) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 26, 2010
Cask at the Back of Beyond (JDW), Reading. Hazy golden brown in colour with a loose cream head; malty aroma; sweet fruity malt flavour with a medium body; and a lightly bitter finish. OK but nothing special.
