inn, Lichfield. Amber beer with small head. Aroma of malts. Taste is malts, fruity, some sweetness and woody. Decent.
Cask at the Bishop Vesey; this beer manages to achieve a zero smell and an insipid taste, flavour does consist of boiled vegetables, on the plus size it does have an appearance of light amber with a thin white head. minutemat (5566) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 16, 2013
500ml bottle from Heart of England Fine Foods, Shrewsbury. Quite a distinctive taste despite being a month out of date with some chewy bits (not due the shop, mind.. rather my unorganised beer shelf!) Some liquorice residue with a slight caramel character. Possibly more so in bottle form, judging by the comments below. dogbomb (1218) - ENGLAND - OCT 14, 2012
Bottle. Light bronze with quickly fading offwhite head. Nose is sickly caramel with a little nuttiness. In the mouth, there is a surprising slickness, then some light sweet maltiness and not much else. It’s quite "lagerish" to that end. Thirst quencher of decent quality. But no taste-bud exciter. mike_77 (6673) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - SEP 22, 2012
Light brown. Quite high carbonation kills the head. Aroma has malts and wood and is also a bit perfumed. Flavour has a dry, woody feel but also some red fruit sweetness. Overall a bit too sweet.

Bottle. Bronze with a small head. Some fruitiness and a trace of hops. Pleasant and easy to drink. DruncanVeasey (8226) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAY 26, 2011
UPDATED: JUL 29, 2012 1) Bottle from Dobbies....you couldn’t say conditioned. Slops headless copper with a brief fizz of foam. Buttered dandelion aroma. Alarming, slightly brackish taste at first; some half-decent liquorice and digestive notes amongst the varnished wood, fatty walnut, raw mushroom and chlorine weirdness. Barely drinkable. 524210.
2) Cask handpull as ’Dadlington Hamlet’, The Dog and Hog, Dadlington. Copper-gold with a tight white drum of foam. Mellow apple peel English orchard fruit and biscuit character, sprinkle of demerara. Yeast and bread. Weak pear nose, boiled sweets. Decent. 636313. downender (8660) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 8, 2010
Cask-conditioned at the Staffordshire Beer festival, Seven Stars, Bristol 6/10/10. Sweet, syrupy aroma with a hint of grassy hop. Flavour had some summer fruits, cereal malts and short, bitter finish. Lacked impact. maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - OCT 2, 2010
Cask Conditioned Handpump Market Porter Borough Market. An amber coloured beer with an off-white wisp of head. Served too warm and hence struggling a little. A fairly sweet fruity beer with leafy hops. A reasonable body and not that bad; just needs more chilling. sm89walt (2065) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - AUG 27, 2010
Cask - The Duke of Wellington, Norwich. A golden amber beer with a pencil fine white head. Nutty, toasty, earthy aromas. Caramel & biscuity malt flavours, an oddly cloying sweet fruit character and a delicate, dry toasty bitterness. A bit muddled all-round really. Soft palate, light to medium body with a short finish.
