fonefan (49999) - VestJylland, DENMARK - OCT 28, 2012

Cask (handpump) @ Ye Cracke, 13 Rice Street, Liverpool, Merseyside, England L1 9BB.

ABV: 3.6%. Clear medium yellow orange colour with a average, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, off-white to white head. Aroma is moderate malty, toasted, light hoppy. Flavor is moderate sweet and light to moderate bitter with a average to long duration. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft to flat. [20120116]

BlackHaddock (7515) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 10, 2012
Pint, hand pulled during a ’Meet the brewer’ evening in my new Wetherspoons (Oct 2011). Golden copper coloured body, clear and fairly bright, thin white head on top. The challenger and goldings gave off a nice hoppy aroma, not too strong but they were there for sure. The taste was a mix of the said hops and some mild toffee flavours, not unpleasant but fairly weak. The beer is only 3.6% ABV but it lacked umph and the body wasn’t heavy enough for me. I’d imagine it to be fine on a warm, sunny afternoon watching cricket, but I didn’t really take to it I’m afraid.

anders37 (26824) - Malmö, SWEDEN - NOV 24, 2011
Cask @ Charles Dickens, Southwark SE1. Pours a clear golden color with a small white head. Has a fruity malty caramel aroma. Fruity malty caramel flavor. Has a fruity malty caramel finish.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - MAR 21, 2011
Cask conditioned handpump Samuel Pepys Slipton. A typical Slaters beer with sweet toffee notes. A bit of diacetyl and some phenolic notes. Too sweet although it doesn’t drink too bad.

2.5
hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 2, 2010
Cask at The Green Man, Stamford, Lincolnshire. Copper with a small white head. Malt aroma with sweet fruit gum. Taste is an odd comination of malt with sour fruit, perhaps unripe grape. Mid bitter finish. Should be good, but it doesn’t work for me. To be honest, I thought I read the name on the pumpclip as’Why Knot’, presumably a punning reference to the Slaters logo.

3.6
Leighton (21839) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 30, 2010
Cask at the Wenlock Arms, London. Pours a semi-clear hue with light film. Fruity aroma with yeast and dough. Sweet flavor with Belgian candi-like notes, caamel malts, and earthy bitterness. Medium in body with fine carbonation. Finishes bitter with some grassy hops and faint caramel malts. Good.

3.2
DJMonarch (9179) - Northwich, Cheshire, ENGLAND - JUL 17, 2010
Cask Handpump at the Penny Black JDW, Northwich 18/06/2010 Some hop aroma. White head. Golden coloured hoppy and fruity with a grapefruit flavour. A hint of dryness in a bitter lasting finish.

2.4
MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 17, 2009
A Mes rate. Cask at the Wenlock Arms.
Clean gold with a decent white head. Decent hoppy aroma but very basic. It does even less in the mouth and what it does do is not good. It’s not like a can pick out anything that it particularly wrong, it’s just the flavours are not pleasant. Meat, oily fat and pondwater. Yup, I’m done.

2.7
harrisoni (19003) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 13, 2009
Cask at Swan with Two Nicks, Worcester. It’s a slightly buttery toffee bitter, some attractive softness in mouth, not much hop. Not much bitterness either but it was a damn sight better than the Bodddingtons.

2.5
imdownthepub (14974) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 15, 2009
Cask conditioned at The Old Fox (Theatre Bar), Birmingham. Gold with white head. Well, I hardly got anything from this, a largely tasteless thin, watery beer, maybe a yeasty malty body, but little else, nothing off either, just nothing.
