Cask hand-pump at the Old Manor (JDW), Bracknell. Golden colour with a cream head; aroma of hops and malt; sweet malt flavours with some fruitiness; slightly bitter and acidic finish - it felt like it was taking the enamel off my teeth.

A Mes rate:
Cask at Baker Street ’Spoons. Pretty awful. Not my thing at all. Nor are most beers from this brewery. Just doesn’t sit right for me. gnoff (10367) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - APR 25, 2007
(Cask/Real Ale at The Bishops Arms, Västra Hamngatan, Göteborg) Clear copper color, small tan head. Fruity, sweet and quite hoppy scent. Nice complex hoppiness, also fruity and sweet taste. Smooth mouthfeel, medium bitterness. DonMagi (5593) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 16, 2007
Aroma gives caramel malts with some floural hops. Taste is similar a bit toasty at times which i didnt expect, a very uninspiring basic ale. GarethYoung (1111) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - SEP 7, 2006
[cask at JDW] Slightly floral nose, background malty caramel aromas medium body, touch of bitterness.

UPDATED: MAY 1, 2008 (Cask at Rugby Tavern, Bloomsbury, london, 23 April 2008) Copper colour with brief, white head. Fruity, floral nose with orange, mandarin and grass. Fruity, fairly dry taste with orange, hints of toffee and butter. Fresh floral hops in the finish. Refreshing and nice. Mungo (2470) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - APR 11, 2006
Cask conditioned @ Humble Plum, Soton. Slightly malty with caramel and vanilla aromas, yeast and apple. I was suprised by the lack of hop presence in this - just making a slight appearance in the finish. Not interesting. harrisoni (18578) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 30, 2005
UPDATED: MAR 18, 2006 Cask at Sun Inn Faversham, Kent. One of Sheps better seasonal beers. Good lemon citrus hop nose and a refreshing citric flavour with flowery hops. Still the usual Sheps slight yeast taste, but still pretty good imdownthepub (14554) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 19, 2005
Cask Conditioned at The William Cazton, Tenterden, Kent. Brown amber beer with soft bubbly head. Light fresh spring beer in cask, a little thin and green but easily drinkable and restrained. Light hop finish and a grainy malt underbelly. MrWalker (926) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 22, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 10, 2005 Cask conditioned at Oliver Twist, Stockholm
Pleasant, slightly burtonised, aroma. Spicy, hoppy taste with a touch of freshly cut grass. Easy to down. I like. Had two pints.
