On cask at the Guildford Arms. Appearance - deep amber to red with a nice fluffy head. Nose - light strawberry and biscuit. Taste - a bit more of the Jammy Dodger thing. Palate - close to medium bodied with a creamy yet crunchy texture and a long dry crunchy finish. Overall - solid.

GBBF Day 2. Cask. Clear amber beer, a few pale tan bubbles. Palate is light and dry, modest fine carbonation. Modestly sweet malts, a little caramel. Mild orange, some peel. Ripe dried fruits. Light floral finish. Not bad.

ndburns (190) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 4, 2016
Pint at Charlton Kings Club. Pours Red-Amber with a thick beige head. Malty, hoppy aroma, a little pine. Similar flavor, a little sweet up front, quite bitter, some fruity notes.

2.6
jjsint (2998) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2016
Handpull cask at the Salutation, Doncaster. Dark brownish red, very clear with a white head. Lots of lacing. Not much scent. Some malt, berry, forest floor... noticeably metallic. Taste is an acrid bitter which later softens to a pleasant fruity sweetness. But its too late. A lingering acrid note at the end. A real let down.

3.4
Mr_Pink_152 (4878) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JAN 16, 2016
Tried at the cardinals hat, Lincoln. Reddish Amber colour with an off white head. Aroma fruity malts, taste has more citrus sweet. Nice enough.

2.8
ManVsBeer (10253) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 24, 2015
Cask @ Flowerpot, Mirfield. Golden-blonde with a creamy-smooth head. Lightly malty in both aroma and taste with a few darker tasting malts involved.

3.7
theprof (931) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUL 23, 2015
Cask. Pleasant fruity scent. Red chestnut body. White top thins to lace. Good malty flavours in the foreground but with citrus hops stretching the taste on the palate. I could get used to this.
