3.1
nate2g (1548) - Boomtown!, AUSTRALIA - MAR 12, 2010
Cask @ Princess Louise, London. Golden with creamy white head. Aroma and flavour of fruity hops and an OK malt backbone for support. Easy enough drinking.

3.2
Muggus69 (2807) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - MAR 10, 2010
Cask Amber body, white cream atop. Floral hops on the nose, with a good amount of sweet toffee malt. Smooth texture, low carbonation, medium body. Nice hop flavour; decidedly fruity, citrus mostly, bit of grass with a biscuit and toffee malt backbone, balancing a moderate bitter finish. Quite good, especially for the price!

In the Kings Arms, York, dark amber and a good head, fruity aroma, very nice bitter taste, good beer.

downender (9003) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 14, 2009
Cask-conditioned at the Cittie of York, London 13/10/09. Amber in colour with a decent, off-white ehad. Fruity, caramel aroma and flavour, with a touch of earthiness in the finish. Ok.

2.9
kwik-lime (2116) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 7, 2009
Beautiful, creamy head that lasts the full of the length of the pint. Nice malty aroma but nothing special taste-wise, a standard and well-balanced session ale that goes down easily but is somewhat boring.

2.6
Christian (13921) - Odense, DENMARK - SEP 26, 2009
Golden with a lasting creamy, almost nitro-looking head. Fruity and malty aroma with an apple peel note. Sweet and malty flavour with a hint of grasy

3.4
swoopjones (7020) - Buffalo, New York, USA - SEP 21, 2009
Cask at Angel & White Horse in Tadcaster, England. Orange amberish pour. Rich malt aroma with oaky presence. Beautiful white head. Fuller bodied. Mildly bitter with nice subtle oakiness

3.1
Herkybird (21) - YORK, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 31, 2009
This is a mid brown, malty ale with very little hop aroma but a pleasant flavour and full body which is usually very consistent. Add to the fact that it sells for £1.40 a pint in every Sam’s house around York (Jul 09) and it tastes even better. Good beer, exceptional value. However, it is an acquired taste for some. Beware next morning if you overdo it!!

3.1
Bullit (4790) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JUL 27, 2009
Cask @ The Crown, London. Amber colour, beige dense head. Aroma is malty, bit of caramel. Flavour: toasted malts, vegetable hops. Sweet and bitter finish.

3.1
DonMagi (5593) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2009
Cask at the princess louise. Alround rating: Possibly my first ever bitter direct from a wooden cask. Earthy english malts and fleafy bitter hop, a bit unexciting and just like a sessionable chap that i may have had a few thousand of by now.
