Cask Pint at Wibbas Down (JDW), Wimbledon, London in Apr 2010 - Golden in colour. Malty; sweet malts, caramel, slight honey aroma. Fruity; apple. Hoppy; floral hops. Sweet malty throughout with slight bitterness in the finish. Disappointing. (2010-04)

ManVsBeer (9993) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 3, 2015
Cask @ Manchester & County, Manchester. One of a few never sampled in the 2010 Wetherspoon Beer Festival, and never found during the official dates of the Autumn 2015 one, so very happy to find in still on 2 days after the official end of the latter. Golden with a small head. Has a lovely crisp, light, and easy-drinking texture thatís very clean tasting. Has a malty character.

Hippoman (646) - Durham, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2015
Cask at The Water House (JDW), Durham, £1.89/pint. Surprisingly dark (mid-amber) beer with a small but smooth, white head that laces well. The nose is slightly earthy, with light, skunky, rotting fruit notes. The taste opens a little sweet with vegetable flavours clear, with cereal grains also pleasant in a balanced bittersweet mouthful that is refreshing if not at first tasty. The vegetable flavours at first feel too much but soon gave way into more, crip, grainy bitterness. Drinkable but dogged by imperfections.

Holmen1 (5699) - Stavanger, NORWAY - OCT 31, 2015
HŚndpumpet half pint pŚ The Flying Chariot (Heathrow): klar kobbergylden med kort skum. Lett honningaroma i en slank maltkropp. Behagelig, lett bitter avslutning. Men ikke spesielt minneverdig.

jjsint (2909) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - OCT 31, 2015
Handpull cask at the Bankers Draft (JDW), Bedford. Very clear gold with a uniform white head. Smells if sulphur, sulphur and sulphur. Welcome to Burton but come on, there is a limit! Seriously, nothing gets past the sulphur for me. Maybe a bit of cinnamon if you look hard enough. Tastes sweet and eggy. There isnít any room for anything else. Nice body and carbonation for what itís worth. One of the worst beers Iíve had in a while and possibly the worst Spoonsfest beer Iíve ever had.

[email protected] hotel, Shrewsbury. Golden amber beer with small head. Aroma of malts and sulphur. Taste is yeasty, malts and dry grain. Not great.

allmyvinyl (10386) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 26, 2015
Cask up the white lady. Pours clear golden with a thin, tight white head. Aromas of faint malt, caramel, sulphur. Taste is mineral, light sweet finish. Boring.

teorn88 (7647) - Rimini, ITALY - OCT 26, 2015
Cask at JDW WIQ, London. It pours a clean golden color with minimal white head. Aroma is grainy and lightly sweet and skunky with straw and starch. Taste is skunky sweet and salty, with sea water and bloody Maryís. Light gooseberries and stone fruit. Extremely weird. Light bodied with soft carbonation. Overall, not sure about this one

niquillis (2601) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 25, 2015
Cask at Wheatsheaf (JDW), Stoke. Pours golden. Slight honey, hop mix very harsh. Like a bad lager.
