weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - APR 22, 2014
Cask at the British Flag, Macclesfield. I have no idea when or why I was there. If youd ask me I would have swore blind Id never been in. Must have been a good night. Dark amber with a thick off white head, didnt last long. Some dark fruit, malts, caramel. Its easy to drink just wasnt much flavour I was into.

On tap at Hare and Hounds Birmingham. Not much to say here. Malty, thin, no balls at all. But pleasant enough and it helped with catching my breath after tackling the Kernel. Im going to play with a Yeti tonight. Its going to be chewy. Yum!

Cask at the Sussex Arms, Twickenham Green - 07/09/12. Slightly clouded copper brown with a minimal white head that soon thins to nothing. A dark and sour fruit nose with figs and apples present. Dark sugar in the taste, caramel and dark fruit. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Didnt look appealling and appearances did not deceive!

worldbeertaste (1803) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - NOV 16, 2011
UPDATED: MAR 13, 2012 Medium amber colour opaque, with a light tan head. Sweet malt and light roast smell. A little wateryStarts a little thin and moves to a sweet toffee, malt, chocolate, caramel and peach taste leaving a medium bitter aftertaste. The zero to sweet to bitter is a great move and goes down easy.
