Iznogud (4691) - CROATIA - DEC 10, 2017
Cask at Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese, London. Pours cloudy orange with small white head. Matly, sweetish, some citrus notes, also quite bland and some unpleasant notes, some butter. Light bodied.

kapusil (1560) - Budapest, HUNGARY - NOV 9, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 9, 2017 On cask at Cittie of York London. Orange body with a thin off-white head. Aroma of grains, toast, butter and bread. The taste has some buttery character too, but not nearly as much as the aroma with notes of grains, bread and a nice floral hoppynes at the end of the sip. A good example of the style.

thepatrickman (1503) - Lewes, East Sussex, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2017
On cask at Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese, playing a tourist during my lunch break. Quite a nice, if pretty simple, example of the style. It's smooth and malty, with a bit of sweetness, some roasted / nutty flavor, and a moderately low bitterness at the end. It doesn't reinvent the style, but it's a great example of it.

Erasmus_ro (3235) - Alabama, USA - JUL 31, 2017
Cask @ Anchor Tap, London, 21/07/17. Pours orange with a good, white head. Aroma is strong with flower. Taste is caramel, strong flower, dry. Some fruit candy(?), some fruitiness. Nuts and flowers in the strong finish. Very nice.

imraky (1) - LEIGHTON BUZZARD, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 19, 2017 does not count
A beer with a beautiful colour and a smooth head. It has a full flavour with that bit of extra depth that oak casks give. Drank three pints in the Chandos in central London last night and really enjoyed it.

bartlebier (4214) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - MAY 3, 2017
Dispensed into halfpints from actual oak cask at Nellies - White Horse Inn in Beverley, East Yorkshire. A spectacle to watch this settle into something murky and sparkling, between franconian Kellerbier and Lambiek - not the only parallel: the oak cask adds a wild woody tartness to the unfiltered barley proteins, that closes the gap to Zoigl and even young, cheesy lambiek - still it does not taste "off": the orange marmelade and lemon jelly underneath is fresh and zesty on the palate, if quick in its finish. A creamy, easy UK "bitter" underneath that I could drink all night next time I make this pub my destination...

2.9
Scopey (16227) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 5, 2017
Cask hand-pull at Ye Olde Swiss Cottage. It pours clear brown with a sturdy off - white head. The aroma is quite soft, sweet, toffee, fudge, butterscotch and bread. The taste is malt - driven, brown bread, toasty grain, cereal, toffee, touch of butterscotch and wood with a faintly dry finish. Light - medium body and fine carbonation. Drinks easy for sure, but there isn’t much depth to it.

Davros IX (571) - Hertford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 22, 2017
Cask at the RIsing Sun. A standard northern English bitter with a creamy mouthfeel, plenty of malt and a litte bit of bitter hops. There was also a rather strange sharpness that meant I would not have had a second pint.
