Cask, The Lord Keeper of the Great Seal, Oadby. Hazy, dull gold with a small head. Aromas are malty with some citrus. Flavours are light, sweet caramel malts with autumn fruit and citrus. Some sweet wheat with dry tea. Slightly creamy but with acidity coming through. OK.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 28, 2008
<i>A Mes rate: cask at Baker Street ’Sporks.</i>
Dark gold with a thin white head. Fruity malt aroma that is bland yet inoffensive. Similar flavour but with an odd hint of strawberry and a very faint bitterness in the finish. So so until the nasty bready hit in the aftertaste.

fiulijn (21264) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 28, 2008
<i>2008-11-09, Cask Conditioned at J.D. Watherspoon - The Shakespear’s Head, London, 5-3-5-3-11</i>
Light amber color. The aroma is light, but it reminds me some white wine. Ordinary malt flavor, with a very light fruitness. Not impressive, but slightly better than my first impression.

<i>2008-11-07, Cask Conditioned at J.D. Wetherspoon - The Pommeler’s Rest, London, 5-3-5-3-9=25</i>
Light amber color. Some caramel flavor, balanced, but too simple, quite boring.

3.3
yespr (47567) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - NOV 21, 2008
From cask at Standing Order. Pours hazy orange a fully gone head. Mild fruity and bitter aroma with a light spice to off note. Apple to citric flavour with a mild caramel malty base. Smooth and malty finish with a light spice note into the finish.

3.5
hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 17, 2006
Bottle from Banks and Taylor at Bromham Mill, Bedford. Medium gold with a white head. Pleasant fruit and malt aroma. Spicy citric taste with a good bitter finish. Decent beer, brewed in October.
