[Cask at Seaview Hotel, Seaview, Isle of Wight] Amber, slight white head. Citrus at first, with wheat chaff hints. Quite sweet. Minerals come through in a lasting finish. Maybe a little watery, but generally OK.

johndoughty (4996) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUN 19, 2009
Bottle.claiming to be their flagship beer this was very disappointing. Muddy appearance and a lifeless body.Some bitterness but generally very bland. One to avoid.

DruncanVeasey (8012) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAR 18, 2009
Cask, Charters, Peterborough. Headless dead Ribena half wafting faintly with nuts, choc and cask hints. Sesame-led bitter with woody tones, hazelnut, chocolate and caramel. Distant smoke leaning into watery mild territory. OK.

KnutAlbert (6713) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 3, 2008
Cask at the Market Porter. Full malty body, cereals. Could have done with more hoppy bitterness to balance it. Drier finish, but not very impressive.

omhper (23711) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 27, 2007
Bottled. Clear amber, airy head. Resiny nose. Sweet spritzy and fizzy with some rounde malt underneath. Notes of sulphur, lemon and yeast. Harsh resiny finish. Disappointing.

Mungo (2470) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - NOV 15, 2006
Cask conditioned @ South Western Arms, Soton. Mid brown. Rounded malts and caramel with a few initial hints of peardrops on the nose. Some mild sweetness balanced with nuttiness and light hops. Not bad but quite unoticeable.
