SilkTork (5738) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - APR 30, 2008
Frog & Toad Gillingham. The Frog & Toad offers too many beers for a backstreet pub, and the woman serving through a swan neck kept allowing the beer to be sucked back up resulting in an agitated beer and a bit of vinegar gained no doubt from some stale beer in the pipes. The beer is very pale and lacking in substantial character. Mild citric tones and a bit of soft fruit. Dull on this evidence.

Served slightly warm in the tennents bar. Aroma was minimal but sweet pale malts and floural hop were to be found. Taste was similarly minimal but drinkable with some fruit character of th dark kind.

UPDATED: DEC 11, 2010 Cask @ The Bon Accord. Mild flowery caramel aroma. Light to medium brown colour. Not much flavour, hop, malt, grass, flowers. Beer flavoured water.

[email protected] Beer Festival. Golden beer, looks like mango juice. The aroma is dry and fruity and the flavour is plain fruity and dry. Overall a plain beer.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 1, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 14, 2009 Cask at Wellington Arma, Bedford. Golden colour. Faint hop aroma. Citric, almost lemony flavour. Loads of fruit, mid to low bitterness. 14.3.09 Same location. Colour more amber, I thought. Very faint malt aroma. Fresh, thin fruitiness. grainy background. Acceptable but ordinary bitter. 3,4,5,3,12:2.7

Holmen2 (3642) - NORWAY - MAY 6, 2015
Pint from cask at The Gray Horse,Manchester with JR and MEH. Clear golden. Dense and persistent white head. Moderate, and complex malt aroma. Complex malt in taste as well, with malt balanced with some hops in aftertaste. Extremely quaffable and served in fine condition. Perhaps a bit waterishness in mouthfeel.

niquillis (2752) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 28, 2011
On cask at The Congress, Longton. Pours amber with a white foam head. An interesting start, taste of a white paper bag that’s had a 10p mix in it. Grassy middle, flavoursome for a low ABV ale.

Mungo (2470) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - SEP 29, 2006
Cask conditioned @ Humble Plumb, Soton. Copper coloured. Crystal malts and hints of floral hops. Tastes watery and a little bland.

Ethereal (2421) - Los Angeles, California, USA - AUG 9, 2011
Cask at the Express, Kew Bridge, 8th Dec 2010. Bright clear amber with a line of white head. Soft malty nose. Uninspiring watery cold tea taste. Goes down easy but a perfect example of why some people look down on session ales.

ladnewton (1964) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 13, 2010
Cask at the Kingston Arms, Cambridge, on 26 November 2010. Copper with thin, greyish ring of head. Mainly sweet with any hops fairly subtle and a light fruity aroma. Light and rather watery mouthfeel.
