Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - NOV 15, 2003
Cask Conditioned, at the Wenlock Arms, London.
Golden brown with an ever so fine head. Surprisingly hoppy, complicated by a nutty almond twist. Easy drinking style of beer with a medium to long palate.

imdownthepub (14229) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 1, 2004
UPDATED: FEB 18, 2006 Cask Conditioned at The Turf Tavern, Oxford.
Brown to Gold colour with lasting bubbly head. The Turf Tavern is Oxford CAMRA branch Pub of the Year for 04 so the quality should be at its best and this proved to be a tasty, sl sour malt beer with rich fruity notes. There is a strong alcohol note, playing above its strength and a rounded smooth finish.

Sampled cask conditioned at Akkurat, Stockholm.
Nut brown. Sweet and very roasty with some citrus and a bold moputhfeel. Fruity and rounded with a soapy, intensely bitter finish.

bobinlondon (1295) - Harrow, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 4, 2009
Handpulled cask at JDW Harrow. Dark copper with an off white head. Fruitier than name suggests. Not much roast or nutty flavours. A little caramel and toffee with gentle hops. Overall its a very pleasent ale.

wheresthepath (2268) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JAN 26, 2012
[Cask at the Back of Beyond (JDW), Reading] Brown with a moderate cream head and a good rich mouthfeel. Treacle up front follows through into a sweet, fruit taste with lemony hints. A woodland mulch bitterness at the end tries to balance but doesnt quite achieve it, leaving a slightly sticky aftertaste. Far more interesting that most Rebellion ales - a good effort that for me didnt quite work out.
