3.1
Muggus69 (2438) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - MAY 6, 2010
Cask at Garrick Pub, London - dug up some old notes circa Dec 2007. Served at room temperature. Pours beautifully clean deep amber body with dense white head and lace. Moderate carbonation, decent body of malt, creamy texture. Fruity nose; dark berries, malty toffee, which follows through to the body. Quite a different British ale.

Clear amber colour with okay head. Sour lambic-like beer - but in a nice way... Backlog.

Plovmand (8266) - Helsinge, DENMARK - MAR 22, 2010
Cask at Wetherspoon, London. Yellow body with a medium creamy longlasting white head. Mainly fruity and caramel aroma notes with some hops. The flavour is caramel, fruit and light hops. Ok.

2.7
deyholla (11496) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 25, 2009
Cask. Poured amber with a bit of an orange hue and a ivory head. Aroma had grain from the malts and floral notes from the hops. Flavor was a bit more malt based with both caramel and sweet grains coming through with an undertone of the floral hops.

3.2
Finwe (436) - Grankulla, FINLAND - NOV 12, 2009
Cask at Bag o’ Nails, Westminster. Copper red colour with a foamy, white head. Fruity hops and sweet malt in the aroma. Some caramel notes in the otherwise malty aroma that also includes hints of fruitiness. Hoppy aftertaste with some citric fruits. Nice bitter.

2.6

Cask Conditioned Handpump Cordwainer Northampton. A copper coloured beer with a big whitish head. Not much going on in the aroma just a bit of yeasty dishwater. Banana yeasty notes in the mouth with some fruit and sulphur. Ordinary.
