Christian (13670) - 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

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

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!!

Bullit (4637) - Burgos, SPAIN - 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.

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.

kempicus (343) - Bakewell, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - MAR 18, 2009
Tried on cask at the cittie of yorke. Dispensed via sparkler of course! One of the cheapest pints in london i reckon at 1.88 a pint! bloody good drinking for the price, Light fruity aroma on the nose, nice mouth feel with a dry bitter finish, great lunchtime pint!

fiulijn (20492) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 10, 2009
<i>Cask Conditioned at Duke of Argyll, London</i>
Amber color, persistent creamy head. Light toffee aroma and toffee flavor. Balanced Bitter, refreshing but unassertive.

bobinlondon (1295) - Harrow, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 29, 2008
UPDATED: MAR 22, 2009 Handpulled cask at THe Princess Louise, London. Orange with creamy white head. Good balance of malt and fruit with a very slightly lactic yeastiness. Dry bitter finish. Not a great beer but an excellent session drink which still tastes much as it did 30 years ago, Brilliant value at £1.88 a pint in central London!

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - SEP 25, 2008
Cask conditioned - handpump - Tiger Inn, Haxby North Yorkshire. A copper coloured beer with a Yorkshire white head. A dry aroma with a hint of sulphur. The taste is similar with some fruity notes. An old fashioned beer but perfectly drinkable and always dirt cheap.

2.9
EFC1878 (315) - Manchester, Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - AUG 27, 2008
Cask at various locations and times - certainly not the beer it was 10 years ago. Seems these days to have a permanent haze to it. Usual bitter colour with decent white head. Nothing special in the aroma; mainly malt with slight fruit. Decent body but lacks anything noteworthy with regard to hop or malt. Undistinguished finish and at its worst can leave an unpleasant tang. Higher rating as it’s cheap as chips.
