MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 20, 2008
A Mes rate: cask at the Bon Accord, Glasgow.
Red brown with a thin off white head. Roasty malt and a slight sourness. Fruity finish. Far from being in good nick unfortunately.

DonMagi (5593) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 1, 2008
Cask in the Bon Accord. Another beer in bad condition. Aroma is roasty, musty, old cellar. Taste is similar, quite yeasty, some fruit. But body is dead and its fairly usless.

DJMonarch (9179) - Northwich, Cheshire, ENGLAND - JUL 24, 2007
Cask Handpump at the New Oxford, Salford 16/03/2007
Slightly rich aroma. Dark and a little rich on the palate with some dryness in a crisp oyster roast finish.

GarethYoung (1111) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - JUN 27, 2007
[Cask from The Three Judges] Deep brown with a moderate, foamy head. Toffe and roast in the nose, touch of fruit, earthy, English hops. Some more roast and a bit of fruit, dry finish.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - MAY 24, 2007
Cask conditioned - handpump - Cambridge BF. Not what I would call a devilishly red ale. I watched this being poured and saw that it was coming from the pump with the Hell Beck pumpclip, but this to me tasted like a stout. It looked like a stout with its black colour and loose off white head. The aroma has some lactic quality amongst the roast and chocolate. The taste has berry fruits, and is on the light side. Some roast, some lactose, but also some hop. Interesting.
