BeardedAvenger (488) - Addlestone, Surrey, ENGLAND - NOV 23, 2016
Cask at Prince of Wales, Farnborough. 12/11/16. Aroma? Glossy dark brown, with a thin off-white head. Theres some bitterness, a touch of sweetness... i.e. not much going on. Light with a very soft mouthfeel. Easy drinking in the same way that water is.

Leighton (19802) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 2, 2015
Cask at Pigs Ear 2015, day 1 - London. Pours clear brown with a frothy, white cap. The aroma holds burnt toast and light cocoa. Light sweet flavor, a little ashy, with leathery berries, dry cocoa. Light bodied with fine carbonation; good condition. Dry and lightly ashy to close, with more leather and bittersweet chocolate. Not bad.

BeerViking (4444) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 29, 2015
Cask at the Express, deep red-black with a tight tan head and a coffee and dark fruit nose. Smooth, dry-sweet and lightly roasty, a faint plummy tartness counterpointing note of milk chocolate, blackberries and a dry bitterness. Very nice.

The_Osprey (7340) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 25, 2015
UPDATED: JUN 14, 2015

Feb 2015 - Gravity cask at Bree Louise. Dark cola brown, small bubbly brown head doesnt endure. Aroma is soft coffee, some berry fruit. Body is medium to light, watery and smooth, no carbonation. Taste is watery but has some ash, toffee, a little coffee. Listed on Ratebeer as a bitter, but there is no bitterness whatsoever here. This is a mild in my book. Drinkable, but a little insipid. (2.9)

June 2015 - Cask handpull at the Wibbas Down. Thought this sounded familiar! I wont bother with all my notes, but the taste this time was toffee, molasses and twig. I got a better impression this time round - better condition I guess. (3.2)

Scopey (13554) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2015
Cask at CASK. It pours deep brown with a decent beige head. The nose is smooth roast, earthy, wood, toasty, liquorice, umami and coffee grounds. The taste is smooth, earthy, toasty, ashy, dark fruits, coffee grounds and wood with a dry finish. Light-medium body. More of mild than a bitter. Well-rounded and rather drinkable.

Cask gravity at Reading BF 2014. Cant believe I have never had this before. Clear very dark brown lasting beige head. Chocolate coffee yeast aroma. Some malt some wateryness its probably not in the best condition. Distinctly average.
