Cask-conditioned at the Staffordshire Beer festival, Seven Stars, Bristol 6/10/10. Reddish amber in colour with no head. Sweet, toffee and red fruit aroma, with some alcohol evident. Flavour was very sweet, with red currant jelly, crystallised oranges and jam, before a burning alcohol finish. Good. madmitch76 (25568) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JUL 26, 2010
13th July 2010. Chelmsford Beer Festival. Clear amber beer. No real head - a few lonsome bubbles! Dry palate. Brandyish toffee with some orange marmalade. Some alcohol heat in the finish. A full flavoured beer but nontheless lacks something. Just needs another dimension to it. JaBier (8253) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - APR 11, 2010
Cask at the 2nd Annual Winking Lizard Real Ale Fest on 3/27/10. Clear orange pour with a thin off-white head. Very English malt and hop aroma with some caramel and a bit of candy-like character. English malt with candy sweetness and a bready finish. Not my favorite style. Travlr (26091) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - APR 9, 2010
Cask at Pizzeria Paradiso in Washington, DC. Golden color, 3-bubble head, great lacing. Aroma of caramel and pears. Taste is very smooth, sort of like a mild, with a subtle bitter edge. Brings back memories of the pubs of Norwich. Very nice indeed. harrisoni (19336) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 14, 2010
Cask gravity at White Cliffs BF 2010. Orange colour. Some decent citrus, crystallised fruit which is quite nice. That is really drinkable. Bit of heat on end. Bit hot. Good crystallised fruits though.

Cask - White Cliffs Festival 2010, Dover. Clear, coppery brown with a fine, bubbly off-white head. Strong and the alcohol’s there on the nose coming through with peach and pear drops. Brown sugar, pear drops and dried fruits comprise the flavour profile. Heat on the palate with a slight sting. Thick and lingering on the tongue with a dry, fruity bitterness.

Cask at Wandsworth Common Halloween Beer Festival, 30th Oct 09. Heavy, cloying amber brew. Strongly alcoholic - it numbs your lips! Honey and a hint of whisky on the nose. Flavour-wise it’s not as intense as you’d expect at this strength. Svesse (8803) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - DEC 7, 2009
(Cask at White Horse, Parson’s Green, London, 27 Nov 2009) Amber colour with brief, off-white head. Malty, fruity nose with dried fruit, apricots, molasses and treacle. Malty, fruity taste with notes of dried fruit, apricots, orange marmalade and a slightly bittersweet finish. Full body, fairly sweet and rather vinous with warming alcohol towards the end. Very nice winter warmer. malrubius (3020) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - JUL 31, 2009
Time to catch up before BCTC. On tap at Spuyten Duyvil big beer fest. Orange with ring head. Caramel cinnamon bready aroma. Caramle spice cinnamon spice english hop. Cloying. Bitter finish. Ok. Beershine (5253) - VANCOUVER, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 21, 2009
Cask at Delaney’s. Clear amber. Thick off-white head. Buttery aroma of simple sugar and cookies. A tad stale smelling. Nice mouthfeel, cask pull. Quaffable low carbonation. Interesting flavor profile is herbal, spicy, some alcohol, sweet in places and dry in others. Smooth. An intriguing drink.
