Cask Pint – JDW Fest Autumn 2011 in Oct 2011 - Mahogany/Dark Brown in colour; Red against light. Malty; roasty malts, chocolate, toffee. Fruity; dark fruits; slightly vinous. Hoppy; earthy and spicy hops. Sweet chocolate malty with slightly sour hop/fruit edge. Liked this a lot. Very drinkable. (2011-10-20)

imdownthepub (22698) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 15, 2012
Cask conditioned at The White Horse at Banbury Cross, Banbury. Chestnut with slight head. Malty, grainy bitter, some sweetness, some fruitiness but a bit underpowered for the ABV. Average.

Spoons festival ale which is strong and full-bodied, but is lacking in flavour.

Hamilton Hall Spoons. Hazy brown beer, small pale tan head. Smooth palate, mild fine carbonation. Nice! Malty - a little dark in character. Trace of coffee. Mild red fruits underneath. Trace of orange hop with a little bitterness as well. Finishes semi dry with mild bitter linger. Good stuff!

berkshirejohn (8930) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 3, 2011
Cask at the Old Manor (JDW), Bracknell. Chestnut with a tight, dense, beige head; aroma of chocoalte malt; an intersting blend of flavours, chocolate malts, autumn hedgerow fruits and sour dough; then a dry finish, with well hidden alcohol. An excellent strong ale.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - OCT 28, 2011
Cask conditioned Handpump Last Plantaganet Leicester. A chestnut coloured beer with a thick white head. A weird beer with sweet alcohol flavours but a short finish. Candied peel. Possibly shallowing but quite plain. Maybe a touch of vinegar in nose.

cgarvieuk (34488) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 26, 2011
cask at standing order ... copper brown ... thin tan head .... soft toffee light tracle nose ... sweet toffee fruits ... light sour hint almost showing through ... sweet malts .... not up to much

BeerViking (8162) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 26, 2011
Cask at the Webb Ellis (JDW, Twickenham). Pours dark brown with reddish hints and a small fine lasting head, old wine aromas, rich body with toffee, fruitcake, some tart fruit, and roast nuts, and bitter mocha in the finish. A good strong ale.

bobinlondon (1298) - Harrow, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 23, 2011
Gravity cask cellar run at the Moon & Sixpence (JDW) Hatch End. Chestnut with a loose bubbled off white head. Poor carbonation. Caramel, dried fruit and dusty hops. This was my last required beer of the 2011 Autumn festival and a bit of a disappointment frankly.

Leighton (31111) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 19, 2011
Cask at The Crosse Keys, JDW, London. Pours a dark, amber-ruby with a foamy, off-white head. Bit of toast, caramel and ripe fruits in the aroma. Medium sweet flavor, tangy fruits, sugar. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Sticky sweet finish, tangy fruits and malts, toast and faint roast. Not bad.
