Bullit (4703) - Buffalo, New York, USA - AUG 6, 2011
Cask @ The State. Copper colour, thin off-white head. Nose is soft malty, bit of glue. Flavour is soft malted, sour fruits, bit of wood-polish.

imdownthepub (15334) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 30, 2011
Cask conditioned at The Grapes, Oxford. Gold with white head. There was a big, initial cigarette ash flavour right at the start leading to a long dry bitterness. Some fruits, but indistinct. Not in great nick.

Leighton (22329) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 21, 2011
Cask at The Cleveland Arms, London. Pours clear, rich gold with a medium, creamy white head. (TLC’s ’No Scrubs’ sets the mood.) Aroma is crisp grains, herbal hops, some dark sugar. Flavor is very nice, sweet toast, hints of berry jam, mild earth, hints of grapes and leaves. Light to medium bodied with fine carbonation. Finish has a nice balance, with leafy bitters, subtle ripe citrus, toast, some burnt sugar. A solid beer this.

[email protected] 2011. Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is fruits, wood, vanilla and some mild earthyness. Flavour is fruits, wood, caramel, herbs and some grassyness.

Oakes (18873) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 6, 2010
@ Raven, Bath. Golden amber with slight haze. Very hoppy-spicy aroma. Extra spicy and dry beer, now showing much fruit if at all but instead an excellent spic character. Very hoppy.

Beershine (5253) - VANCOUVER, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 1, 2010
Cask @ The Raven, Bath. Bright copper. Scattered lacing. Small but lasting head. Fresh hoppy aroma. Lovely floral notes. Supremely quaffable. Excellent floral notes are coupled with delightfully fruity malts, finishing toasty, crisp, and balanced. Very long flavor journey. Am I being too generous in the rating? Perhaps, perhaps not.

downender (8891) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 21, 2010
Cask-conditioned at the Salutation, Ham Green, Gloucestershire 20/7/10. Amber coloured with a moderate white head. Aroma of soft, berry fruit, grassy hops and a touch of malt sweetness. Flavour had more fruitiness, with a hint of raspberry and citrus hop leading to a bitter finish. Good.

DJMonarch (9179) - Northwich, Cheshire, ENGLAND - NOV 6, 2009
Cask Handpump at Bar Fringe, Manchester 18/07/2009 Some hop aroma. Golden amber coloured and hoppy with a crisp and slightly dry full malt finish.

Nightfall (1307) - Hamburg, GERMANY - AUG 18, 2009
Cask (handpump) @ The Wellington, Sheffield, England. @ [ RBESG 09 ]. Amber. Malty aroma and taste. Lots of berry, some caramel, slight sourness.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 10, 2009
A Mes rate: cask at Bar Fringe.
Amber colour with a thin white head. Fruity, grainy malt, lots of tea, even more apple. Sound good? It isn’t.
