Cask handpull at The Monk’s Retreat, JDW, Reading. Copper, slight haze, lasting beige head. Cascades really show through on aroma and then the fruity Willametter enhance and develop the malt, the finish is pure stinging blackcurrant Willamette. One ofthe better ones of the 50 festival beers. DJMonarch (9179) - Northwich, Cheshire, ENGLAND - JUL 25, 2007
Cask Handpump from the Outside Bar at the Star Inn, Huddersfield 31/03/2007
Floral and hoppy aromas. Thick white head. Golden amber coloured hoppy and citrus with some dryness and bitterness in a crisp and creamy finish. downender (8774) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - APR 21, 2009
Cask-conditioned at the Commercial Rooms (JDW), Bristol 21/04/09. Copper coloured with a decent, off-white head. Hoppy aroma and flavour, with some balancing fruity malts. A lingering dry finish added to the pleasure. This Wetherspoons festival has, to date, been a big improvement on the last one. DruncanVeasey (8260) - Nr NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - APR 26, 2009
The Briar Rose (JDW), Brum. Tawny amber with dense fine suds and dainty lace. Slight floral hop, malt and yeast aroma suggesting Turkish Delight; unexpected mellow lemon and rose notes beyond, softening into faint chocolate and digestives. Robust husky malts and a dab of quinine in a dry bitter linger. A bit useful.

Cask at the Old Manor (JDW), Bracknell. Hazy reddish amber with a thick cream head that heavily laces the glass; citrus aroma; zingy in the mouth with orange fruit flavours and chewy roasted malts; fruity gently bitter finish. Very pleasant. One of the best of the JDW festival ales. mr_h (5840) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - MAY 19, 2012

Cask in Blackfriars. Aroma is nutty, peppery, fruity, floural hop. Taste is similar, brown ale malts an small citrus lemon note. First time iv had this beer in Blackfriars and im fairly happy with it. JohnRMurdoch (4999) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - MAY 21, 2012
Cask @ The State Bar. Rich dark brown colour with a good head. Fruity malt aroma. Dry blackcurrant malt flavour. Bitter aftertaste. A good bitter. hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 29, 2009
Cask at ’Spoons, Milton Keynes, in ’Spoons Real Ale Festival. Dark copper with a small white head. Sweet spicy hair oil hop aroma, but with something else. Mandarin perhaps? Ginger? An interesting aroma. Orange marmalade malt in the taste and a corky, grainy background. Mid bitter finish. I like this.
