Gary (2054) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 27, 2015
Cask @ The JDW Grayhound Bridport . A good soulful red ale and chugged it fast as it was Friday ....Biscuty bready malts , notes of caramel , roast, licorice . It has a rich potent character that makes it hard to put the glass down.

DruncanVeasey (8260) - Nr NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JUN 2, 2015
Cask, probably in a Spoons. Eponymous with a well-retained vanilla foam. Nose chestnut, lactic hints, dates, a dosing of fine choc. Mellow, malt-driven, lightly nutty, creamy and roasted. Hops for bitterness only. Solid brew from solid brewery.

jjsint (3429) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 10, 2015
Cask at the Sun. Lancaster. Reddish copper/brown with a sizeable off-white head. Malt aroma with a hint if berry. Straightforward bitter taste with an assertion of sweetness from the heavy malt. Ok, but I wish it was more exciting.

hotstuff (5233) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - OCT 1, 2014
Backlog rating on 9-12-2012. This beer has a medium sized ivory smooth head with a short retention, transparent copper body, fizzy, fast rising carbonation, and no lacing. The aroma is caramel malt, hops, suggestion of fruit, and spicy. The flavor is caramel malt, semi -sweet, lightly bitter, suggestion of fruit, and spicy. This beer has a dry finish. The mouthfeel is smooth and this beer is light-medium bodied. This beer is easy to drink, but it lacks much depth and character.
