SarkyNorthener (5069) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 11, 2018
[email protected] Arms, cannock. Mahogany beer with small head and decent lacing. Aroma of malts and red fruit. Taste is red leaf, peat smoke and malts. Decent.

berkshirejohn (6812) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 6, 2018
Cask at the Old Manor (JDW), Bracknell. A dark amber pour with a tight cream head; caramel aroma; caramel taste with a malty body and a touch of spice; but lacking finish. An old-fashioned Heavy.

Scopey (16524) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 25, 2018
Cask at The Standing Order Edinburger. It pours clear brown with a decent beige head. The aroma is sweet, oily, resin, varnish, biscuit, cinder toffee, touch of bubblegum even and some toasted nut. The taste is dry, earthy, woody, bitter - sweet, biscuit malt, grassy, slightly soapy, spice and some toasted nut. Finish is dry and woody. Medium body and soft, massaging carbonation. Fair enough, but perhaps a bit sweet if anything.

jmgreenuk (10514) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - DEC 28, 2017
Cask at the Pump House, Solihull. Poured a clear dark amber with a long-lasting frothy white head. The aroma is dough biscuit malt. The flavour is moderate bitter with a dry malt, medicinal yeast, woody, hop bitter palate. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Rather drinkable but I suspect that the cask was on the way out.
