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 (15263) - 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. OwainTurner (425) - Leicester, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 22, 2014
Nothing special. Clean and crisp. Move along. Nothing to see here..,....................... GuideDogSaint (1690) - Xiamen, CHINA - AUG 2, 2014
Cask at the Assembly Rooms, Epsom. Pours mid brown with a thin white head. Aroma malt and sugar. Bitter sweet finish. MissPxx (991) - 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.

Cask (The George (JDW), Staines)Theydon_Bois (20143) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - SEP 13, 2012
Bland aroma, rather dull bitter. Snorefest, there’s just nothing here.
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! kwik-lime (1998) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 26, 2011
Very malty, quite sweet, with a hint of biscuit. Keeps its head well. Really enjoyable bitter. evergreen0199 (3441) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2011
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.
