Rune (13383) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAR 10, 2016
Gravity at The National Winter Ales Festival. Shared with Finn. Clear golden body. Naked at the top. Oily hops and grainy malts on the nose. Mild brown malty flavours alongside moments of fruity hops. Fair bitter ending. On par with the style (Derby 18.02.2016).

Finn (7916) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAR 3, 2016
Fra cask/gravity på NWAF i Derby 18 Feb 16. Delt med Rune. Varm gyldenbrun. Syltynt filmskum. Saftaktig. Tydelig aroma av lær & plommer. Smaken ganske lik. Blir lett syrlig etter hvert.

jjsint (3437) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 29, 2015
Cask at the Bankers Draft (JDW), Bedford. Mid to dark gold with a cloud of white head on top. Slight lemony hoppy scent, a bit of rosehip and grapefruit. Malt-led taste: sweet and grainy. Finish is more bittersweet with the return of the hop. Luscious mouthfeel. A fine beer.

DruncanVeasey (8260) - Nr NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - OCT 2, 2013
Cask handpull, The Baron of Hinckley (JDW), the week that was week 39. Think they’d just hosted a meet the brewer night which probably means this was fresh on. Nose of tea, honey, strawberries and vanilla, hop pollen, tangerine. Soft balanced bitter oozing condition, corn-like malt softness, marshmallow, dried grass and tea leaf. Custard cream biscuit, Newstead Eater and Wotsit hints. Brilliant bronze gold speckling with lace. A top bitter in perfect condition.

DandyLion (518) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 24, 2013
Cask @ Babelas Leicester. Golden amber colour. Malty but floral aroma. Taste is light malt, with medium bitterness at first but lingers a nice length of time. A light, oily mouthfeel. Nice enjoyable beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

FatPhil (16960) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 16, 2012
Cask (Drapers Arms, Peterborough)
Simple malty bitter aroma. Some grains. Malty body, hops low. A little dull, but very well crafted "boring english bitter". A touch watery. But it looked great in the glass with is tight persistent head.
