hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 19, 2011
Cask at Bedford Athletic Rugby Club. Amber with a white head. Grainy malt aroma and taste with some straw and sourness. Sharp bitter finish. Makes a welcome change to GK IPA as the guest ale at this Midlands 1 East Rugby Club. But got beat by Leighton Buzzard today.

floral aromas with cut grass and fresh hay, a touch of smokiness leeds to the pear of the fruity hops. nice dry finish

Cask, Birmingham, UK. Copper, slightly doubly aroma. Sweet, bit of a metalllic taste.

Vladivostok (491) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - SEP 27, 2010
I have drunk this in many places - usually Hobson’s choice - and it never strikes me as being a great or even a good beer. Little aroma and very, very bland. One can give Marston’s the credit for maintaining production at Cockermouth but they really should be putting out something with a bit more oomph than this.

pivnizub (10769) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - AUG 11, 2010
Cask (Saddle Inn, Keswick, York): A bit unclear, deep golden, "woody" hoppy nose with a subtle fruitiness; very light bodied, moderate bitter-sweet flavour; a certain fruitiness plus herbal hops in the dry finish. O.K......

yespr (47115) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - AUG 5, 2010
From cask. Pours hazy orange with a small white head. Aroma is mild fruity and slight peachy. Citrusy and mild orange fruity. Bitter and bone dry. Bitter finish with a persisting fruity note. Ends dry.

DougShoemaker (3146) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 1, 2010
Cask. Malty nose with some wheat, copper, small off-white head, some pretty lace. Flavour is a softer malt, some hops are present as well. Light bodied, balanced, creamy smooth. Good

Nickls (2589) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - APR 30, 2010
(Old BA rate - cask) Completely see-through light brownish color with a bit of gold in the color. Nearly pure white head. Good, but not excellent lacing. Fairly bland aromas, with some fruit (apples?) with not a whole lot going on. Really no hop aromas. Taste is pretty basic. Malt and fruitiness are pretty well balanced, but I was expecting a bit more hop given the style. Fairly thin, of course no carbonation given cask serving, and a bit more watery than I would like for the style. Pretty decent drinking as it wasn’t too hard to take down the sample. But it left me wanting for taste.

3.4
dynamiteninja (1875) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - APR 19, 2010
Cask, Duke of Wellington, Twyford. Caramel malt, spucey hops. Caramel-gold colour, medium head. Clear. Medium bitterness. Light bodied, average carbonation. Bitter finish.
