mr_h (3015) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - JAN 5, 2012
Cask by handpump at Counting House, Glasgow on 4 Jan 12 - pours clear brown with a small head, moderate carbonation. Kind of dry bitter aftertaste to this beer. Not one of my favourites.

cask at The Marine, Sidmouth. Copper colour, small, creamy head. Fruity-floral aroma. Medium-bodied, good malty background with hints of roasetd malts and raisins, balanced by some very nice citrusy hops in the lingering finish. Smooth palate. A very good ale.

chriso (7416) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 14, 2011
Cask (gravity dispense) at Reading Beer Festival, day 2, on 1 May 2009. Another decent copper coloured bitter from Yeovil. Good balance of earthy malt and hoppy bitterness. Not a huge amount to be said but a pleasant drinker sure enough.
