Cask, Handpumpe. Deep red/brown with a dense off-white small head. Aromas are light malts with a soft fruitiness. Earthy and dry with floral hopping. Flavours are dry biscuit malts with some fruit. Dry on the finish. A bit thin in flavour.

Cask handpull at Admiral Owen, Sandwich. Deep brown colour with thin disappearing white head. Apple, caramel and some yeast on the aroma. Bit tart in mouth with apple blossom perfumed apple fruit finish. Not how I remember it. Certainly more appley dnas2 (705) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - MAY 24, 2006
Orange amber, very little head. Scent is very malty with an alcohol overtone. In the mouth, it is malty and sweet, with fruit aromas there but not particuarly prevalent. Palate thin and unexciting. Fairly boring. anders37 (26878) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAY 16, 2006

Cask at the Plough, Wolvercote, Oxon 25-04-06. Amber coloured, very small head which quickly disappeared quite sweet, little fruity and reasonably tasty. I had a couple of these and was pleasantly suprised as it was better than I expected and than I last remebered. oh6gdx (26487) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAR 4, 2006
Casked. Copper/ruby coloured, small beige head. Aroma is sweet caramellish malts and fruits. Flavour is sugary and fruity. Very smooth palate and flavour. Some weak wooden hints also there. Fresh cask! I actually like the bottled version better than the cask. TBone (17990) - Pori, FINLAND - FEB 26, 2006

Dark amber color, small off-white head. Sweet floral hoppy aroma. Quite bitter flowery hoppy flavor. Trefoil and some sweetness in the aftertaste. Tastier than a bottled version, lucky to have fresh cask.
