Crosse Keys Spoons. Very hazy dark amber beer, small pale tan head. Palate is softish and smooth with super fine carbonation. Medium malt, touch of toffee. Fairly bitter hops with a touch of citrus. Long bitter finish. Not bad but it lack something to bring it all together.
Cask at the Crosse Keys, JDW - London. Pours clear amber with a fine, frothy beige head. The aroma holds some juicy pine, a bit of ripe citrus, toasty grass. Light to medium sweet with fairly assertive bitterness, some earthy pine, toasty bread, orange. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Lightly resinous to finish, toasty pine, dry caramel and bread, lingering sticky grass. Pretty nice beer overall.

Cask at the Lawrence Sheriff (Llloyds), Rugby, 03/04/13.
Dark reddish amber with a decent beige head that retains well. Good lacing ensues.
Nose carries summer fruits, hops, malt, light citrus, touch of spice.
Taste comprises hops, orange, caramel malt, biscuit, sugars.
Medium bodied, soft carbonation, dry in the finish with a touch of hop bitterness.
A decent all round effort and probably my number 2 of this festival just shaded by Good George. Scopey (15295) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 8, 2013
Cask at Willow Walk, Ldn Victoria. It pours clear deep amber with a medium beige head. The nose is earth, wood, light farmyard, leather and faint jamminess. The taste is earth, leather, dark fruit, spice, very savoury, varnish, decent bitterness and a touch of alcohol with a dry finish. Medium body and soft carbonation. Ok, but the alcohol is too prevalent.

Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Chestnut with cream head. Rich maltiness, full and fruity with a light wine type character then hints of grapefruit and strawberry from a very tasty hop. Really very pleasant and drinkable. Rune (13206) - Tromsø, NORWAY - APR 20, 2013
One-third pint cask ale at Flying Horse (JDW). Low fawn-coloured head leaving spotty lacing behind. Deep, mahogany coloured body. Subdued jam-like aroma. Taste of sweet caramel and dark berries, semi-dry, with a smooth bittersweet twist to the ending. Fine bodied. Nice and tasty (Gatwick Airport, 10.04.2013).
