ladnewton (2099) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 24, 2017
Perfectly-kept cask at the Lamp Tavern, Birmingham on 30th December 2016. Crystal clear amber with thick, lasting creamy-white foam. Hoppy, yeasty aroma with sweet malts. Rich and intense bitterness in-mouth. A solid, full-on bitter finish. Light mouthfeel and body. Absolutely exquisite.

RichTheVillan (8558) - Birmingham, West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 28, 2016
Cask at Lamp Tavern; clear amber pour with a creamy off white head, aroma has pale malts, taste has some tart red fruits, sweet malts, a hint of vinegar.

DruncanVeasey (8607) - Nr NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - APR 26, 2011
Cask handpull, The Lamp Tavern, Brum, 23/04/11. Deep gold with a low white lid and ruff. Caramel and stone aroma. Slight and caramel-rubbed; herbal tones, fern, biscuit. Cooked vegetables softly regurgitated. Pleasant enough. Pisswatter.

fonefan (53100) - VestJylland, DENMARK - AUG 20, 2010

Cask (handpump) @ Lamp Tavern, 157 Barford Street, Highgate, Birmingham, West Midlands England B5 6AH.

Clear medium orange color with a average, frothy, fair lacing, mostly diminishing, off-white to white head. Aroma is moderate malty, toasted, molasses, light hoppy, overripped apple, sulfur. Flavor is moderate sweet and light bitter with a average duration. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is flat. [20100116]

Fin (11189) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 9, 2010
Cask at The Bakers Arms, Broad Campden, Glos’, 06.08.10 Pours dark gold, light amber with a white head. Nice refreshing session bitter, in fact this was much more assertive in the bitterness stakes than I can ever recall and I’ve had this a few times now but never rated it. Malty and then drying in the finish, a very reasonable beer but defiantely playing to the far superior Hobsons Twisted Spire which was in very good form and in an altogether different league.

downender (9065) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 2, 2010
Cask-conditioned at the Seven Stars, Bristol 2/08/10. A rare appearance for this brewer in this city. Copper coloured with a slight, off-white head. Light, malty aroma of caramel with a hint of fruit, followed by some leafy hops. Flavour had some cereal malts, a touch of fruity sweetness and flinty edge, before a long, bitter finish. Very good.

Papsoe (25054) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 4, 2010
Cask. Pours a slightly hazy deep golden with a small off-white head. Lightly tart minerally aroma. Light body, flat, lightly fruity and spicy with a fairly hoppy finish. 160110

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - NOV 16, 2009
Cask conditioned handpump Lamp Birmingham. This was either not right or totally not to my taste; I reckon the former. It’s copper with a white head. Veggy notes and big ugly malts throughout. Didn’t get any bitterness just a bad dryness. Not cool unlike the pub.

RichardGretton (4883) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 26, 2008
[email protected] Criterion, Leicester. Flat looking amber beer with a very strong and slightly vinous aroma. The flavour is very dry and very well hopped. Overall a watery and very dry beer with not a lot about it.

leaparsons (10919) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 18, 2007
Cask, The Criterion, Leicester. Amber with a small head. Aromas are fresh and hoppy with pear and brown sugar. Some bitter marmalade. Quite sweet and flora. Flavours re pear with sweet grapefruit with caramel and biscuit. Quite flowery with a bitter finish. Toasty with kiwi and melon. Decent.
