DruncanVeasey (8603) - Nr NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JUN 25, 2010
Cask handpull, The Felix Holt (JDW), Nuneaton. Bright orange amber, good lace. Plastic, wood and sherbet aroma. Fermented orange juice in a plastic water container, paper, good biscuits. A bit drab, but better than it sounds.

Cletus (6351) - Connecticut, USA - MAY 3, 2009
Cask at the Ginger Man in Norwalk. Pours gold with a creamy white head and low carbonation. Smells earthy and floral with some appley hints. Tastes tepid, low in carbonation and dry with a nice appley bite on the finish.

liinis (1791) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 23, 2009
Excellent rich pleasant fresh and nicely bitter. incredibly good! only minus is the flatness of the mouthfeel. (RA if I remember)

MiP (16083) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - SEP 10, 2008
Cask, 4.2%. OK fruity aroma. Hazy copper colour. No head. Moldy flavour, some fruit. Quite boring.

FatPhil (17510) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 14, 2008
Cask (Angleterre, Helsinki)
Deep orange, almost no head. Sweet fruity aroma, estery. Quite full body, but a bit watery and flat. Reasonable back-of-the-mouth bitterness. Hint of mushroom. OK bitterness, but a tad dull.

DonMagi (5593) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 5, 2008
Cask in the three judges. Aroma is nutty malts, pale malt and slight hibnts of sulphur. Taste is similar theres an iodinyness in here i dont like though.

berkshirejohn (6813) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - APR 30, 2008
Cask at the Bridge Inn, Burton. Amber with a creamy head; aroma of stewed vegetables and manure, but not in a bad way; fruity with some honey flavour; short but strong bitter finish.

albertane (377) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAR 23, 2008
Cask at the Devonshire Arms, Burton upon Trent. This amber-coloured bitter has a very good balance between sweet malt and bitter hops which is perfectly tasty although not really a standout in any way. It strikes me as a textbook bitter which is pretty good.

RPillsbury (115) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAR 23, 2008
Cask at the Devonshire Arms, Burton-On-Trent. A nice aroma of citrus and hops. The flavour is a good balance of zesty lemon and hops with a lovely bitter finish. I did find it too thin, though.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JAN 29, 2008
Cask conditoned - handpump - The Globe - Leicester. A copper coloured beer with a sparkled white head and lace. The aroma is citrus hoppiness. The taste is very bitter. Nice balance between the hops and the malt so that the bitterness is never harsh and overpowering. A really decent beer.
