Cask (handpump) at the Tram Depot, Cambridge on 27 July 2011. Copper/chestnut colour. Thin but lasting off-white head. Light fruity malt aroma. Reasonably dry on the palate with a big berry fruit element. Not really my thing but pleasant enough.

ManVsBeer (9421) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 15, 2014
Cask @ The Baum, Rochdale. Dark amber with a small creamy head. Theres a sweetened grain in the nose with a hint of chocolate but veering towards a generally malty taste.

On cask at Mr Grundys Derby - A ruby coloured beer with a decent white head that laces throughout. The aroma has good fruits with blackcurrants, cranberries and raspberries (not sure really, there is something else there) seeming to stand out. The taste is fruits and malts with more berries. Good body and very tasty. Hero beer of the day.

Off tap at the Brunswick. Pours dark amber with a thin white head. Very malty with a soft toffee after taste. Very bitter. Gets nicer with every try.

[cask at the Brunswick Inn, Derby] Another drinkable copper-coloured bitter, with a generous white head. Rich, malty, banana notes on the aroma. Flavours are sweet caramel malt, leading into a fruity, slightly hoppy finish. Very nice [18042009]

Cask, Star & Garter, Wigston. Amber with a dense cream foam. Aromas are light apple with earthy notes and weetabix malts. Mellow lemon with light spices. Flavours are sweet stewed apple with lightly bitter lemon and toffee malts. Earthy, dry and fruity to finish. Not bad but in good nick.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 24, 2008
Cask, gravity, at Cambridge Beer Festival 08. Copper amber with a small white head. I thought it was particularly nice looking. Old fashioned rounded malt aroma. Theres a little malty sweetness in the taste, but a sharp bitter finish is the dominant impression. I dont think that its particularly well-balanced.

Cask, Brunswick. Chestnut colour, small white head. Malt and hops, slightly floral, some yeastiness. Little bit of sulphur. Sweet carries through from taste to finish, little bitterness. Not too heavy, dry aftertaste. Normal bitter.
