sm89walt (2011) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JAN 10, 2009
The Merry Monk, Kirton. Clear amber in colour with a large, creamy white head. Subdued floral and citric nose along with some general fruity malts. Quite sweet on the tongue; a fruity maltiness with butterscotch flavours and a bitter citrusy finish. Smooth and easy on the palate; refreshing and highly quaffable as a session beer.

detroitsteel (235) - Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 8, 2008
On draughed at The Harp, between The Strand and Trafalgar Sq, London. Good body, excellent mouthfeel, creamy, malt and just the right amount of bitterness. Good beer.

weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - SEP 22, 2008
Cockermouth he he he. Can’t remember much about this as I was very very drunk but remember thinking thank god I don’t have to have Carling. It was ok, could have been worse but wasn’t great. Gold with a thick white head. Drinkable enough but nothing to get jimmy out over.

wheresthepath (2229) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - AUG 31, 2008
[Cask at Burnt Oak, Milton Keynes] A pale orangey brown bitter with a slight white head. Decent enough earthy hops, some malt, a moderate bitterness. Overall enjoyable enough, easy to drink, but an average, and fairly forgettable bitter.

Cask-conditioned at the Mad Bishop and Bear, Paddington Station 20/6/08. Deep gold in colour with a fluffy white head. Aroma of caramel and grassy hops. Flavour started sweet before a touch of spice and a decent bitter finish. Good.

Red Lion Pub in Wendover -- Wonderful, a Friday night, a crowded pub, my last night in England, finally feeling good after a horrible cold, the kids are at home--nice. Oh yea, the beer was pretty good too. I didn’t take notes at the time, but the beer was yeasty with some citrus feel. Good pub brew and good times.

thewolf (12300) - Kolding, DENMARK - APR 24, 2008
Cask @ some Soho pub, London.
Pours light coppery amber with a small, white film head. Aroma is pretty hoppy, grassy, mild caramel and a lot of cookie-dough. Fine mouthfeel. Flavour is rounded, nice bitterness, subdued pine and grass with a little caramel.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - APR 11, 2008
UPDATED: JAN 6, 2010 Cask conditioned - handpump - Wig & Pen, Northampton. A light amber coloured beer with an off white head and lacing. The aroma is pretty thin, but decent enough. Light in taste but pretty nicely balanced. Some slightly sweet floral notes. Quite a safe bitter but certainly drinkable. Score 2.9
Subsequent rating scored 2.8. Score unchanged
