Cunningham (7712) - Halden, NORWAY - DEC 6, 2016
Hazed nutty color with a thin off white layer on top. Mild intensity in the aroma. Medium light body and a quite soft carbonation level. Tad sweet and a moderate bitterness. Caramel malty, fruity and some herbal (coriander) notes in the flavor.

mabuzzer (755) - Hamilton, SCOTLAND - JAN 26, 2015
Cask at the Red Lion, Whittlesford. Copper coloured with a white head. Grassy aroma, taste is coriander with a little orange. Decent, but noticing spectacular

jjsint (2879) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - NOV 15, 2014
Cask at the Live and Let Live, Cambridge. Golden brown with a larger-than-usual white head. Honeyed grassy smell with a hint of cinnamon and orange peel. Slightly sweet at first, the taste turns more bitter toward a dry finish. The flavour of ground coriander asserts itself in the taste without dominating the profile. Body is weaker than I would have liked. Decent, well crafted and very drinkable.

The_Osprey (7811) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 30, 2014
Cask at Crosse Keys JDW, City. Clear amber orange, still, small ring of white head. Aroma is pleasant - flowery perfume, rose petal. Body is medium, smooth, low carbonation. Taste has leaves, oregano, grassy, digestive biscuit, soft bitterness. The coriander has a nice influence. Good.

Scopey (14202) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 21, 2014
Cask at the live and let live, Cambridge. It pours clear amber with a bubbly white head. The nose is earthy, light toast, fruity, herbal, floral and brown bread. The taste is bitter-sweet, earthy, brown bread, but, caramel, wood and light herbal notes with a dry finish. Medium body and soft carbonation. Thankfully the coriander is not overdone. Interesting enough.

Theydon_Bois (18915) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - DEC 19, 2013

Taste comprises lemon rind, ginger snap biscuit, corriander notes, straw. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, light bitterness in the finish. Ok spiced up bitter.

BlackHaddock (7038) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - DEC 3, 2013
Two hand-pulled pints in The Cock Hotel, wellington: one on 29th Nov 13, one on 1st Dec 13. Looked the same but the second pint wasnt as mellow as the first, had more flavour and seemed crisper. Different barrel, or just two days older: should have asked the Landlord I suppose. Pours an orange/copper colour with a tight white crown. The aroma was fairly weak on both pints: some floral and light fruit esters with hints of spices. The taste is far from weak though: full of flavour with the coriander standing out within the blend of bittering hops and mild malts. Medium bodied and a pleasant change from the light golden cask brews that are flooding the UK market currently.

a_cross (639) - Poole, Dorset, ENGLAND - AUG 8, 2013
Copper-brown, thin bright white head; malty aroma; well balanced malt and hops, dried fruity taste; a weird herbal coriander bitterness on the finish which Im not totally sold on; still, a decent enough sub 4 percenter.
