BlackHaddock (6974) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - NOV 22, 2016
Cask pint in The Paxton, West Norwood, London on 19th Nov 2016. Amber in colour with a decent sized off-white head that hung around. Malt led brew with an earthy, nutty and woody feel to both the nose and semi-bitter, semi-sweet taste. Old School beer and I liked it, good hop balance too.

McTapps (6785) - Reutlingen, GERMANY - APR 25, 2014
Pours out of the bottle in a deep golden / light amber colour with low head and flat body. Aroma of dark hops and malt. Taste of hops, barley, malt, leaves, caramel and nuts. Bitter-medium dry finish. Nice and smooth to drink, not a bad one.

HogTownHarry (6563) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - AUG 27, 2012
Handpull at The Harp (Chandos). Clear copper-amber decent frothy off-white frothy head. Herbal and slightly sour fruit aroma, a bit of alcohol. Taste follows, more intense bitterness. Slick, decent body, weak carbonation, dry oddly acidic tart finish. Not bad.

MichaelAwesome (6503) - Wanne-Eickel, GERMANY - APR 25, 2014
Nice one. Hops with some malt, barley and even some fruity moments. Drinkable, bit thin and watery end. Nothing special, but an ok one.

On tap @ the Haymarket. Pours a light toffee colour with a nicely proportioned head. The nose has apples, toffee and ginger. The taste is of creamy toffee and butterscotch. The palate is medium bodied and rich textured with a decent finish.

berkshirejohn (6370) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 13, 2010
UPDATED: JUN 23, 2012 Cask at the Bree Louise, Euston. Copper with a thin cream coloured head that laced the glass well; rich malty aroma with some red fruits and butterscotch; full bodied with a fruity and spicy taste - reminds me of spiced plums; lightly hopped finish. Very drinkable. (January 2010 - 6/3/6/3/13=3.1)

50cl bottle from the brewery. Copper with no head; red fruit aroma; solid malty taste with light dry finish. Still very drinkable. (June 2012 - 6/3/6/3/13=3.2)

500 ml bottle. Dark golden body with a fast disappearing, dense white head. Aroma is mild malty. Flavor is sweet malt, some caramel and slightly bitter. Medium body and moderate in aftertaste. Rather straight forward ordinary bitter.
