Scopey (6833) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 18, 2013
Wooden cask at Pig’s Ear 2013. It pours clear amber with a small beige head. The nose is wood, varnish, spice, light sulphur and light berry notes. The taste is wood, earth, citrus, sherbet, more wood, burnt toffee and toast with a dry finish. Medium body, fine carbonation and oily mouth-feel. Not a whole lot going on. So-so.

Cask handull, The Prince of Wales, Hinckley, 05/11/13. Cream-capped coppery pale red. Nose reasonable orange and blackcurrant wine gum. Sourish with redcurrant and orange chocolate, good crushed malted milk biscuit linger. OK but zero US or NZ Pacific character.

Fin (7411) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 11, 2013
Cask, handpump at The James Street Tavern, Cowley Rd, Oxford, Monday 11th November 2013. Pours reddy/amber, clear with a slim white head. Quite raspy bitterness but underpinned with a robust malt base and tempered sweetness. Full bodied, fruity but with a bit of caramel, roof of mouth getting a little grapefruity coating. I like this, plenty in here to like but with a good malty base and bitterness. A7 A4 T8 P4 Ov15 3.8

imdownthepub (10235) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 7, 2013
Cask conditioned at St. Aldates Tavern, Oxford. Reddish copper with off white head. Hooray, a Brewer not just knocking out Golden Beers for the Summer. This has a fuller roasty, biscuity body with a pleasant breadcrust character then a fruity hop, I noted loganberry at the time. Good depth and very enjoyable. The beer of the night.

berkshirejohn (4528) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - APR 5, 2013
Cask at the Henly Brew House, Henley. Reddish amber with a tight cream head; tropical fruit aroma, but papaya and kiwi rather than the usual mango; rich and buttery in the mouth with more tropical fruit, grapefruit and pineapple; followed quickly by a crisply bitter finish with citrus and pine cones. Very satisfying.
