JefVerstraete (3752) - Oosterzele, BELGIUM - SEP 23, 2014
Cask @ pub, Wooler. Dark brown colour, creamy foam. Unbalanced beer, aroma of roasted malts with hints of caramel and coffee, also sour notes. Not very good.

allmyvinyl (11208) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 18, 2014
Cask at the Sun hotel, Warkworth. Pours clear amber, foamy white head. Aromas are toffee and raisins. Taste is sweet. Finishes with more light toffee and red fruit. Ok.

stravale (3150) - Co. Westmeath, IRELAND - OCT 13, 2013
Cask @ Diggers, Edinburgh [131013]
Caramel brown, clear, dense off white head, some lacing
Aroma of soft sweet caramel malt, bit metallic, overall little on nose
Taste of soft caramel, some toffee, bit nutty, dab of honey, touch of soft roast, bit dull overall and flavour falls flat in the middle.
Palate - Light medium body, smooth but bit watery, fairly sweet palate. FInish as main flavour, bit dry, bitterish slight metallic tail
Overall - Soft malts in here, but generally a bit underflavoured and has some rough edges. It’s not that great overall

Rune (13770) - Tromsø, NORWAY - AUG 26, 2013
Handpulled cask ale, half, at Malt Shovel Inn. Deep dark brown coloured body. Bubbly ring to the rim of the surface. Caramel malts on the nose, hints of herbal hops. Dark, fruit caramel flavours with dusty hops and a touch of basement. Nice bittersweet malty ending. Medium bodied. Pleasing (Edinburgh, pub crawl with mr_h, 09.08.2013).

mr_h (6072) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - AUG 9, 2013
Cask by handpump at The Malt Shovel, Edinburgh - clear amber brown, non-existent head, dry caramel with herbal hop aroma, malty with herbal flavour, low on carbonation, fruity finish

Rob_D_UK (1366) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAY 13, 2013
Amber coloured and slightly hazy in appearance with some alcohol present. A malty hop finish.

Martin243 (1245) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - AUG 23, 2012
Pint at Spoons Gateshead. Hazy amber, thin off white head. Aroma well hidden- couldn’t get agrip on it. Medicinal flavour- Victory V’s? Strange, and not in a nice. way.

dynamiteninja (1932) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 28, 2011

Benjii (3050) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 24, 2011
On cask at The Blue Blazer. Pours a golden colour with a thick white head. Aroma of musty caramel, honey and barley. Flavours of caramel again with puffed wheat and a sweet honey finish. Not bad.

imdownthepub (15526) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 10, 2011
Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Sludgy brown with no head. The only amazing thing about this was the price, all pints of R.A in this ’pub’ were 1:29!!. Other than that it was a sludgy mess, really not good at all.
