BeerViking (4207) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2016
Cask at the Michael Balcon, deep red-brown with a lasting fine beige head, nose is sweetish malt and dry wormwood, rich and lightly bready, more malt, a little toffee, a woody undertone, and a lasting bitter herbal note. Intriguing.

The_Osprey (6596) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 26, 2016
Cask HP at Hamilton Hall London as ’Woods Wonderful’. Dark amber orange, clear and still with minimal head. Aroma is toffee and honey, bready sugars. Body is smooth with lowish carbonation. Taste is bready, honey, lightest touch of resin dryness. A pretty pleasant sweet and malty ale.

minutemat (4423) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 16, 2016
Cask @ Montys, Shrewsbury. Pours clear copper, off-white head. Aroma is light caramel. Taste is very light caramel, light berries, moderate hops, fairly bland and safe.

Towey1989 (1899) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 2, 2015
Cask at The Holy Inadequate, Etruria. A clear amber colour with a medium white head. Aroma of sweaty malt, soft toffee, some yeast, slight apple and subtle diacetyl. Taste of toffee, some yeast, slight bread, a little apple, fruity malt and subtle diacetyl again. Medium bodied and soft carbonation. A soft, fruity bitterness in the finish. This beer grew on me but overall it’s a below average, malty ale with unappealing apple and diacetyl tones.

BlackHaddock (6384) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - NOV 9, 2014
Really pleased to see this, an old friend from many years ago: 6th Nov 2014, hand-pulled half-pint at the 24th Shrewsbury CAMRA Beer Festival. Copper with darker ruby hint, wispy head on this pour. Aroma is toffee apple like, as is the taste, both of which have a fruity semi-sweet feel to them. Medium bodied and very easy to drink.

UPDATED: SEP 22, 2016 Nice one. Copper colour. Caramel and toffee flavours with berries. Lightly bready. Very nice on palate. Will drink again and rate again. Yes raised several points on second pint. Really excellent. Good strength. Also apple and fruity tones in taste.

yespr (40836) - 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.

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.
