From cask. Pours clear and golden orange with a bubbly white head. Mild spiced and hoppy aroma. Smooth bitter and fruity hops base flavour. Mild fruity and hoppy finish. Nice one.

Charters, Peterborough. fairly flavoursome, malty bitter that is smooth, well-balanced and very drinkable without being anything special. better memories of having in from cask than previous bottled experience though.

albertane (377) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUL 29, 2008
Cask at the Trumpet, Evesham. Like the bottled version, this is a deep amber, almost copper coloured beer with a sweet fruit aroma. Fruity malt dominates the flavour although the finish is more hoppy.

Cask at Eagel and Child, Oxford. Poured a lovely amber colour with small, off-white head. The beer has a sweet taste with some citric notes and a hint of apples or pears. Plenty of fruit in the finish. A very clean beer and well made.

bobinlondon (1295) - Harrow, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 1, 2008
Handpulled cask at JDW Watford. Dark amber with a weak off-white head. Quite full flavoured with caramel malt and hops. Not bad at ali!

doubelknv3 (1093) - Illinois, USA - JUN 22, 2008
Tasting notes from Hook Norton brewery and Banbury beer festival. Amber with an off-white head. Caramel, fruit, and nut aroma notes. Caramel, dark fruit, and mild hop notes to finish. Mild bitter finish.

DownsouthGav (601) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 5, 2008
cask at the mansion, gipsy hill, london. Malt, hops and cream aroma. Pours a dark amber beer. Tastes is malty, cream and hoppy. Some treacle. Very nice.

JoeMcPhee (9426) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - APR 13, 2008
Cask, d.b.a. Hazy golden amber beer with a creamy white head. Aroma is lightly earthy and a little bit crackery. A kiss of orange peel and toast along with some light minerally bitterness. Lightly fruity, but not overly so. There is quite a distracting metallic not on the back that doesn’t seem to fade at all. Meh... I get the sense that this cask just isn’t in good condition... which is the second in a row at d.b.a. that has been poor.

HogcliffeLenny (162) - Christchurch, Dorset, ENGLAND - FEB 14, 2008
Cask, The Wellington Arms, Southampton. Okay for a free pint, but not much aroma to it - slightly bready, perhaps. Pours a deep amber colour with small off white head. A certain fruitiness in flavour, with a slight sweetness. All in all, a fairly average pint that I would not say no to if offered another free one!
