foxo82 (899) - Bromsgrove (via Leicester), Worcestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 31, 2013
Hand pulled at The Wellington, Birmingham. Can’t believe I’ve not rated this before. Dry, woody and hoppy amber ale. Good duration and bitterness. Heavy and not easy drinking but a good beer nonetheless.

DandyLion (518) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 2, 2013
Cask @ The Clarendon, Leicester. Golden colour with nice white head. Aroma is nice citrus, slightly grassy and spicy. Taste is the same with a nice level of bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cask at The Fountain Inn, Gloucester. Cool refreshing pale with a mild hint of lemon. Foamy head that persists through the pint.

The_Osprey (7886) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 28, 2013
Cask at the Rutland Arms Hammersmith. Slightly cloudy pale orange, small white head. Smell - slight tangerine, watered down ’Sunny Delight’. Body is pretty standard for the style, quite smooth. Taste - more tangerine, soft bitterness, a bit watery. A sessionable, balanced beer. Very drinkable but not memorable.

pivnizub (10575) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - SEP 20, 2013
Cask(@Queen’s Arms, Kensington): Deep golden, hazy, stable small White head, moderate spicy, almost a bit piney, hoppy nose with the usual fruity-malty Background; moderate bitter-sweet flavour, rather light bodied; lingering, lingering dry hoppy finish with a solid fruitiness. A bit thin, but still a nice one...

Brigadier (3665) - Chagrin Falls, Ohio, USA - AUG 10, 2013
On cask at the Wellington (Birmingham)
With the brewers sitting a few feet away I decided to give this a shot. A solid golden ale is good on cask and was just as nice bottled. I wish I would have been able to try a few more before time ran out on the trip to the UK.

Aroma / Appearance - A coppery transparent base retains a little fringe of whiteness. Caramel, cheap waxy chocolate, and cold chestnuts balance well.

Flavor / Palate - Chestnuts, coffee creamer, and a soft maltiness emerge almost immediately after taking a slow sip. The next few are much quicker as this beer blossoms on the palate. The nutty finish adds some character and means that unlike some pub clips I actually can remember the name a few weeks later.

Cask at the one crown . Hazy Orange. Persistent white creamy head. Think I got the dregs of the cask. Meaty mouth feel. Vague citrus and caramel bready
