downender (9089) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 9, 2015
Cask-conditioned at the Line Kiln, Bristol 6/9/2015. Deep amber with a thin, off-white, head. Sweetish, biscuity, bitter with some caramel and berry fruits before a lengthy, bitter, finish. Good.

Sjohnh (1033) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUN 17, 2015
Lots of English hedgerow aromas and tastes here - mint, black currant and so on - alongside biscuity malt. Copper brown, big white head. Medium body.

jmgreenuk (10700) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - MAR 21, 2015
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Poured a clear medium amber with a round bubbly white head. The aroma is dry skunky malt. The flavour is moderate bitter with a light earthy mineral malt, light medicinal palate. Medium to light bodied with soft carbonation.

47574xeCD (1371) - Coventry, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JAN 11, 2015
Racked Cask at Rugby Tap Micropub. Poured a copper colour with minor white head. not much aroma, malty notes and a bitter finish. OK but nothing special.

Hazy deep amber beer, small cream colour head. Palate is pretty dry but has good minerally crispness. Light dry malts. Dry floralness. Trace of caramel. Good tangy dried fruit hops and a dry finish. Much too dry but otherwise okay.

wheresthepath (2456) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - OCT 12, 2014
Cask at the Old Swanne Inne (JDW), Evesham. Deep amber with a thick off-white head. Chocolate up front then biscuitty malt- more chocolate digestive than cookie, which is just fine by me. Lots of treacly toffee and just enough leafy hop to balance. As the name implies, this is dominated by crystal malt but I rather enjoyed it nevertheless- possibly it being my first autumnal-style bitter if the season helped? Nice and flavoursome and well-balanced nevertheless.

ladnewton (2115) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 30, 2013
Cask at Sacks of Potatoes, Birmingham on 28th December 2013. New Barrel - 2nd or third pint pulled. Clear copper with decaying white foam and partial lacing. Intensly malty aroma with biscuit notes. Initial maltiness in-mouth is followed by tangy citrus and discreet savoury touch. Biscuit malts dominate the finish, and the mouthfeel is engaging, indeed slightly grainy, with medium body.
