Cask-conditioned at the Portcullis, Bristol 19/09/09. Amber coloured with a decent white head. Spicy aroma, with some apricots and earthy hops. Flavours of more fruit, cereal malts and a bitter finish. Enjoyable. SaintMatty (7365) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - SEP 8, 2009

Cask conditioned at Far from the Madding Crowd, Oxford. Amber to brown with white head. Darkly roasted grainy taste, a little like burnt cocoa husk with a dry bitterness and a late flowery hop note. Reasonable and a little unusual. DonMagi (5593) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 15, 2009
Cask in the market porter. Alround rating: Honey pale malts, nuttyness coming through, grassy floral hop, fairly dry. Not bad. harrisoni (18578) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 18, 2009
Cask handpull at The Market Porter. I got the last half out of the barrel, so a bit hard to say. Hazy old gold, lasting thick cream. Quite heavy on the rye, good woody taste. No condition. OK, should be quite interesting when in good nick.

Slightly hazy golden brown with no head and slight condition. Fruity and very green. Decent malt and hop balance and a pleasant bitter finish. Straight forward but ok. Like Mark, I couldn’t detect any rye.
Cask conditioned - handpump - Malt Shovel Northampton A copper bronze coloured beer with a thin white head. Some toasty wheaty notes in the nose which follows through to the otherwise clean and drinkable mouth. No discernible rye notes if indeed there’s rye in there.
