Towey1989 (2462) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 29, 2015
UPDATED: JAN 9, 2017 Cask at The Fountain, Leek. A clear amber colour with a thin white head. Aroma of sweet bready malt, slight caramel, subtle yeast and a little biscuit. Taste of caramel, some biscuit, slight yeast, a little apple, a hint of mineral and subtle spicy hops. Light bodied and soft carbonation. A sweetish, slightly yeasty, soft malty bitterness in the finish. Quite sweet and thinner than I remember. Typical bitter but when on form in certain pubs its slightly better.

fullers (269) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 16, 2014
Cask at The Angel, Beverley, N. Humberside. Made a point of seeking out this old friend after the beer was denigrated by a publican at a CAMRA House, during my 2008 visit. Pours amber, clear with full white head. Slight malt aroma. Natural carbonation, nice mouthfeel. Notes of caramel and biscuit. A Burton -on-Trent beer.

mariuszek (1305) - Gdynia, POLAND - NOV 21, 2014
Nice white head. Appearance is the best with this ale. Well balanced in taste and aroma but nothing is going on. Juat some malt and hops. However drinkable.

jjsint (2834) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - OCT 17, 2014
Cask at Wellington Arms, Bedford. Amber, clear, with a lovely white head from the natural carbonation. Light cereal and egg aroma. The taste is caramel bittersweet with eggy sour and slight spice notes. Medium long bitter-sour finish. Mouthfeel too weak for my liking. Enjoyable but nothing special really.

The_Osprey (7731) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 2, 2014
Cask at the Falcon, Clapham. Golden orange, totally clear and still, small foamy white head. Aroma doesnt have a lot to it - malty, soft citrus. Body is light, smooth, low carbonation. Taste is biscuity, smooth malt character, touch of tangy fruit suggeting passionfruit, soft musty bitterness. Slightly watery but this is a very well balanced ale.
