jmgreenuk (8688) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - APR 10, 2015
Gravity cask at the Walsall Camra, beer festival 2015. Poured a crystal clear medium amber with a bubbly white head. The aroma is light hop, light creamy malt. The flavour is moderate bitter with a smooth malt, woody hop bitter palate. Light bodied with soft carbonation. A decent session bitter and a real blast from the past!

weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - APR 17, 2009
Cask. Murky orange brown with frothy white head. Hints of tea and fruit, caramel, mild hop finish. Nothing spectacular but sandwiched in between some utter rubbish, I quite enjoyed it.

Fukito (1048) - Santiago, CHILE - DEC 26, 2007
Cask @ Kings Cross, november 07. Shinny golden color with a small white head. Methallic, oxidized flavor. In a real bad condition. Medium to light mouthfeel, empty, flat and bland. Lifeless, astringent, null aftertaste. Skunky aroma with cardboard notes. Dull, off, forgettable bitter.
