The_Osprey (7812) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 6, 2017
Cask handpull at The Crosse Keys London as Dorking DB Number One. Dark golden, translucent and still with a foamy off white head. Aroma is light and musty, biscuity, sugary. Body is smooth and rounded with light carbonation. Taste is a meld of carpet, elderflower and biscuit, maybe burnt bread and butter pudding, soft lingering bitterness. Fine - pretty middle of the road. Not as bad as I suspected it could be given previous ratings.

Scopey (14215) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 13, 2016
Cask at the Claret. It pours clear amber with a small off-white head. The aroma is brown bread, cereal, rivita, earth and toasted nut. The taste is bitter, grainy, toasted nut, earth, caramel, spicy, hay and wood with a dry finish. Medium body and soft carbonation. Tastes a bit astringent after a while. A fairly basic bitter by any measure.

MissPxx (959) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 23, 2014
Mildly hoppy aroma with caramel undertones. Golden amber colour. Hardly any head. Caramel tasting leaves a hoppy taste in the mouth. Quite drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Theydon_Bois (18919) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - SEP 13, 2012
Gravity dispense at the 1st Runnymede Beer Festival - 08/09/12. Clear golden with no head. Sweet caramel, orange rind and a little faint whiff of grapefruit. Grapefruit also in the flavour, orange, citrus, light malt. Medium bodied with low carbonation leading to a dry finish. This beer grew on me, would like to try it on cask as opposed to the end of the day at a BF!

Cask at Ealing beer festival 2011. An amber/copper coloured pour with a medium white head on top. Hoppy, fruity aroma. Tastes hoppy, fruity, malty and quite delicious. An excellent session ale which I will look out for again.
