minutemat (5938) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 22, 2017
Cask @ The Three Fishes, Shrewsbury. Pours clear amber, small off-white head. Aroma bears an alluring sweetness, continuing to taste with caramel providing the bulk of its character. Smooth on the palate, with a soft fruitiness. Decent.

Towey1989 (3154) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 28, 2016
Cask at The Green Dragon, Leek (JDW) A clear deep amber colour with a frothy off white head. Aroma of caramel, some bready malts, slight orange, a little pear, a hint of fruit and subtle earthy hops. Taste of caramel, grain, some bready malts, slight orange, lemon, a little fruit, a hint of pear, I get soap and subtle earthy, floral hops. Light bodied and soft carbonation. A dryish, earthy hop bitterness in the finish. Bit grainy for a premium, malty bitter but a decent amount of bitterness from the hops used. Below average overall and not a good as the bottle, tastes different somehow.

wheresthepath (2371) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - AUG 23, 2016
Cask at the Cunning Man, Burghfield, Berks. Murky orange-brown, small white head. Toffee and caramel are the main flavours here, with fruit in the background (apple and pear?) and a mild earthy bitterness in the finish. On the sweet side. Certainly better than the pasteurised-to-death bottled version; unremarkable but actually pretty drinkable.
