Cask at The Railway Inn, Winchester. 16/12/16. Vague hay/loft aroma. Light amber. Decent, if frothy, head. A tad bitter, develops in strength but never gets going. Not quite what I expected. Light bodied, with a soft finish. Hides its strength but bland as.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask at The Water House (JDW), Durham, £2.09/pint.
Clear copper beer with a thin, off-white head. The nose is really quite muted but does hint at sweetish tropical fruit amidst sulphurous character. Indeed sweet tropical fruit flavours can be found in the taste, alongside skunky, earthy notes. The flavours are a little crude and heavy but the fruitiness is pleasant and I enjoyed it more than from a bottle.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
30th Sep 2015: hand-pulled cask pint in my local Wetherspoons. Light amber/orange body, full head that gave lacing as the beer level fell. Different beast to itís bottled brother, this has a bigger hop profile in my opinion and is less malty throughout. Having said that hop heads might find it less hoppy than they would expect for an old style IPA.

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at the Wibbas Down, Wimbledon. 5.7%. Catching up on rating some classics - even decided to have an entire pint of this one. Clear amber orange, still, foamy off-white head. Aroma is very light musty toffee malts, toast, floral background. Body is medium, oily, smooth, no carbonation. Taste is card, yeast, bread, tangy resinous hops, soil, rocket and pepper. Plenty of earthy hops. Very traditional character.
