AleManTom (195) - Chapel en le Frith, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - AUG 5, 2011
UPDATED: SEP 4, 2011 A fairly average beer, hazy yellow colour. Medium/full bodied malty beer, sweet aftertaste and citrus on the nose. Re-tried on 3/9/2011, for 5.1% its actually quite good.

Leighton (22301) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 23, 2011
Cask at the Crosse Keys. Pours clear, rich gold with a tight, white-cream cap. Aroma holds some ripish fruits and bready malts. Alright flavor, light to medium sweet, some white sugar, citric bitters, mild dough. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Somewhat sticky finish, sweet malts, light leaves and sticks, some fruity sugars. Decent.

Clear medium yellow - orange color with a average, frothy - fizzy, good lacing, mostly lasting, white to off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, toasted, light hoppy. Flavor is moderate sweet and bitter with a average to long duration. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft to flat. [20101029]

Cask (Cambridge Winter Ale Festival 2011)
Light orange. Not getting a huge aroma, to be honest. Has some of the aromas of more amber caramelly ales, but without too much sugary sweetness. Honey I guess. Soft smooth palte, carbonation low. Mostly malty body, and with a sweet finish. Really enjoyed it, but I think I’ve had better.

olsvammel (7288) - Örebro, SWEDEN - FEB 10, 2011
On tap at Oliver Twist in Stockhom. It poured a hazy golden liquid that cleared up, minimal white head. Mild flavour of pale bread and some milk/lactos. Smooth mouthfeel and light body. To mild for my taste, could use more hops and malt.

sm89walt (2080) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JAN 29, 2011
Cask (gravity) - The Fat Cat, Norwich. Poured a clear, golden orange with a one finger, bubbly & doming white head. Caramel, yeast and some orangey mid fruits on the aroma. An orange sweetness and tang on the tongue, more yeast and a bit of earthiness. Light to medium body, soft on the palate with a short bittersweetness to the finish. A bit muddy in general but still drinkable.

Beershine (5253) - VANCOUVER, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 7, 2010
Gold with stable head. Mild, gin-like hop character in the aroma. Spicy with bright coriander and other herbs. A pleasantly hopped session beer.

Bullit (4686) - Buffalo, New York, USA - NOV 12, 2010
JDW Fest Autumn 2010
Cask @ John Wylie, JDW. Slightly hazy golden colour, off-white creamy head. Aroma is fruity and malty. Flavour is malty, fruity, bit of biscuit. Medium bodied.

Oakes (18756) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 9, 2010
Golden. Pedio nose with light toastiness. Toasty, with a fairly biscuity malt sweetness. Decent stuff.

BeerViking (5041) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 6, 2010
Cask at the Plough & Harrow (JDW) in Hammersmith. Golden-brown with a malty toffee nose and a hint of spice, then a sweetish malty, soft and peppery body, finishing with a gentle herby bitterness and a touch of honeydew melon.
