Cask-conditioned at the Commercial Rooms (JDW), Bristol, October 213. Amber with a slight, off-white head. Full bodied and sweet, with plenty of caramel and a hint of grassy hop, before a gently bitter finish. Leighton (22307) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 8, 2013
Cask at a JDW establishment - in think the Metropolitan Bar in London. Pours clear amber-gold with a creamy, off-white head. The nose holds bread and light toffee. Light to medium sweet flavor with more bread and mild bitter leaves. Medium bodied with fine, creamy carbonation. Further bread and toffee to finish with slight bitterness. So so.

Fairly bright amber, settling haze and sizeable off white head. Musty sweet nose. Fairly skewed initial taste, earthy herby hop and overripened berry bitterness. Overall it’s fairly sweet, clean and citrusy threaded with a similarly sandwiched finish. Odd tang of roasted cheap leather on the finish. Bloody weird. You could probably pass this off as a bitter if the taste met in the middle more often.Sigmund (7917) - Tau, NORWAY - NOV 16, 2013

Cask half pint at JDW, Victoria Station, London. ABV was 5.0%. Brewed at Shepherd Neame. Dark amber to brown colour, moderate off-white head. Aroma and flavour of toffee and caramel, but the beer is not very sweet. Very moderate bitterness, a bit disappointing for an "American" guest brew.

Cask at the Moon Under Water (JDW), Watford on 25 October. Poured a clear dark copper colour with a dense, off white head and excellent lacing. Malty aroma with hints of raisins and floral hops.

Crosse Keys Spoons. Cask. Clear amber beer with a small pale cream coloured head. Smooth palate, a little dry. Smooth dry malt with a little unsweet toffee. Okay orangey hops. Light minerals. Minor bubblegum ester. Mild bitterness. Pretty drinkable.
Cask at the Greyhound (JDW), Maidenhead. Copper in colour with a scummy looking cream head; herbal aroma; sharp herbal bitter taste, then a soft caramel body; the finish is dry with a lingering bitterness. Very drinkable, but I wouldn’t recognise this as an Altbier.
