FatPhil (17334) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 3, 2015
Draught (Maypole, Camdbridge)
Sweet caramelly aroma. Some vegetal hints. Nutty taste. Grainy too, some veg, and even beaniness. Perhaps fading a little, but wasn’t flat and dead in the mouth.

Beese (3305) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 29, 2014
Cask gravity at the Watford Beer Festival 2014. Poured a clear amber, with a halo of rocky white head. Aroma of sweets, mouldy fruit and bread. Malty flavour, with some corn and caramel. Finish was toffee, toasted malt and wet grass.

mR_fr0g (14028) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 6, 2014
Cask gravity at the Watford beer fest 2014. Orange light amber coloured pour with a lasting loose greyish head. Aroma is wet grass. Silage, stale grains and bit of spicy rye. Flavour follows, wet grass, and sweet nutty malt. Palate is watery, thin and sweet. Weird beer. Not a fan.

Finn (8305) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 8, 2014
Fra gravity-cask på St Albans Beer & Cider festival 25 Sep 14. Mørk gylden. Lavt skum som blir helt borte. Svak søt fruktaroma. Smaken tynn. En kan ane litt plommer. Ellers lite. Fjøspreg lurer i bakgrunnen.

Rune (13760) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 8, 2014
Gravicask, shared with Finn at St Albans Beer Festival, Hertfordshire Bar. Clear amber coloured body. Spotty lacing down the glass. Pale malty nose, hints of vegetables. Taste of mild brown malts, lightly spiced. Dry ending with a backdrop of cardboard. Possible to drink (25.09.2014).

mabuzzer (957) - Hamilton, SCOTLAND - SEP 15, 2014
Cask at Red Lion, Whitlesford. Poured a nutty brown with very little head. Toffee aromas, taste is sweet caramel with little bitterness

sic1314 (4773) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - JUL 27, 2014
Poured medium reddish amber with an off white head. Aroma of roast caramel malt, dark fruit, biscuity. Light body, flavour as the aroma, sweet malt and bitter hops.

jjsint (3606) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 17, 2014
Cask @ Bedford Arms, Bedford. Light ruddy brown, thin with a bit of wispy beige head. Pleasant aroma of raisins, malt, toast. Taste is a crisp sweetness with a lingering bittersweet finish. Pleasant but not overly engaging, one to try and then move on methinks.

olio (10692) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 4, 2014
Cask @ O’Connel’s, Tampere.
Pours dark copper-red color with a small head. Aroma is nutty and a bit dry malty, some dry fruits also, very faint hops. Flavor is stuffy with nuts, malts and hay. Should have been a lot fruitier and hoppier.

OleR (4801) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 30, 2013
Cask. Full pint @Wetherspoon, Stansted. Clear reddish-brown. Blond yellow-shaded carpet of foam. Toffee aroma with suggestions of biscuits and earthy hops. Light body. Rounded mouthfeel. Taste is faint caramel with a sourish twist. Mild peppery bitterness. Malty, light diluted finish.
