kwik-lime (1926) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 16, 2016
Cask at JDWs in Tonbridge. John Smiths-like appearance with a thick creamy head. And a fairly similar texture, super smooth. Light floral hop but really not much flavour going on at all here.

3.7
JoeMcPhee (9426) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 26, 2014
Cask at the Padwell Arms. Copper coloured pour with a creamy head. The aroma is quite lovely. Softly floral and spicy with a rich malt backbone. Dry and a bit bitter on the finish. A really lovely balanced bitter.

3.2
hohops (998) - Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 16, 2014
Cask. Appearance is deep amber/brown, a small foamy head which persists. Aromas of bitter hops, malty, hint of cocoa/chocolate. Taste is smooth bitterness, chocolatey malt, raisin notes, malty. Quite light in the body. Pretty good overall.

FatPhil (16102) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 30, 2012
Cask (Bell & Crown, Canterbury)
Slightly mashy aroma. Quite fruity, almost citrussy retronasals. Rich palate, full, soft carbonation. Yup, definitely fruity in the mouth. Sweet, a bit touch caramelly. Nice roast, touch of wood. Pretty tasty rich ale.

Rune (12741) - Tromsø, NORWAY - AUG 23, 2011
Half pint, well kept cask at Sir Christopher Hatton. Copper coloured body, faint white head. Malt-fruity aroma with resinous hops coming through. Bready malts in the taste profile mixed with resin-like hops. More resinous bitterness to the finish. Well made bitter (London, 01.08.2011).
