jjsint (3089) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, - SEP 20, 2013
Light translucent brown. Just enough head to be interesting. Faint woody and herby aroma. Taste however is a revelation. Exceptional bitterness with a sweet edge.

Grumbo (2941) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - JAN 28, 2017
Cask at the 10th Colchester Winter Beer Festival. Pours hazy mid-brown with a small white head. Aroma of hop, fruit and caramel. Light sweetness and medium slightly unpleasant bitterness. Light/medium body and oily texture, carbonation is soft. Finish is dry, and floral. Not sure it was at its best today.

The_Osprey (7980) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 13, 2016
Cask HP at The Williams Liverpool St as ’Brentwood Best’. Dark amber, clear, still, minimal head. Aroma is rhubarb, apple, soap, fruit biscuits. Body is oily and smooth. Taste is slightly tart raisin, apple, light resin. Pretty basic but passable.

Ungstrup (37558) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 1, 2015
Cask at The Globe in Chelmsford. An amber beer with a beige head. The aroma has notes of malt, caramel, and fruits. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, fruits, and toffee, leading to a bitter finish.

olio (10262) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 1, 2013
Cask @ O’Connel’s, Tampere.
Pours clear copper color with a small head. Aroma of caramel, mild hops and fruits. Flavour of hay, malts and faint fruits. Decent malty body. A bit boring though.

erickok (6037) - Leuven, BELGIUM - SEP 17, 2013
Misty golden brown body with grey head. Classic hop, very moderate and with biscuit malt backbone. Dull straightforward but admittedly bitter taste. Soft, not too dimmed carbonation. Drinks well. It’s okay. (Half pint at The Star Bishop’s Stortford)

Leighton (21232) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 17, 2012
Cask at Baxter’s Court, JDW, London. Pours clear yellow with a light, creamy-filmy white cap. Aroma holda light straw and lemony citrus. Light to medium sweet flavor with some faintly tangy lemon and decent grassy hay hops. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Finishes with a light, grassy hop bite and faintly toasted sugar, wet hay, and some lasting bitter grass. Not that bad, in fact.

leaparsons (10541) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 24, 2010
Cask, Criterion, Leicester. Dark amber with a firm small foam. Quite Autumnal looking. Aromas are weetabix and chocolate malts with fruit tea. Mildy spicy with earthy hops. Flavours are sweet and malty followed by dry, bitter hops. A proper traditional bitter. Good.

madmitch76 (24789) - , Essex, ENGLAND - AUG 15, 2010
15th July 2010. Chelmsford Beer Festival. Hazy gold beer. Light palate. The malt has a light smoky edge to it. Reasonable hop fruit. A little unusual when combined with the smoky malt. Finishes dry.

Rune (12738) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAY 8, 2009
Half pint, guest ale on cask at The White Star in Stoke. Nitro white head over an amber body with a slight haze. Rather anonymous in aroma and taste. Some moments of dried fruits and plain malts can be spotted. Short lived bitter finish. A comedown compared to all the Titanic brews at the pub (02.05.2009).
