Cask Handpump at the Penny Black JDW, Northwich 27/04/2011
Some fruit aroma. Creamy head. Bronze coloured and fruity with a blackcurrant flavour. A hint of bitterness in a slightly grainy malt finish. DruncanVeasey (8226) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - APR 27, 2011
Cask handpull, The Briar Rose, Brum, 23/04/11. Deep copper with a level nitro-tight lid. Aroma of stones in an old babbling Yorkshire brook swished with fern and caramel. Same taste, yielding gently buttered stones, shrubs and cooked sugar. Sprinkles of ash and redcurrant. Good. madmitch76 (24807) - , Essex, ENGLAND - APR 26, 2011

Clear dark brown beer. Small off white head. Light dry palate. Dark toffee malt, whisper of smoke. Well balanced with some orangey hop.
Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Chestnut with slight head. Sweet chocolate notes but mingled with a shedfull of caramel, sweet caramel, toffee, really fairly dull.

Cask conditioned handpump Cordwainer Northampton. A dark brown to chestnut coloured beer with a tight whitish head and lacing. A malty beer with fruity hops also late on. A bit of a creamy texture in its full body. Perfectly quaffable but unexciting. cgarvieuk (24465) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 15, 2011
cask at agbell ... copper brown... creeamy tan head ... juicy woody malts ... soft toffee fruits ... quite nice DanielBrown (4502) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 13, 2011
Hand pulled at Wetherspoons (under the Central Library). Difficult to focus fully on this pint, as respected work colleague proceeded to chew my [left] ear right off during it’s consumption. I liked this one, this amber brown, frothy topped fellow. Flavour of sweet bourbon biscuit choc, with some demerera sugar and mineral water freshness. I’m struggling a bit because I know that I have described beers similarly which I have disliked. But I did enjoy this: I liked the balanced, sweet, rye, biscuit malt flavours. Very drinkable. Not world bleeding, but very drinkable. Bullit (4637) - Burgos, SPAIN - APR 9, 2011
Cask @ Counting House, JDW. Amber colour, off-white head. Aroma is light malted, a bit indistinguishable.Flavour is malty, chocolate and caramel indeed, some fruits. Slight sweet and dry finish. Meh.
