dogbomb (1217) - ENGLAND - APR 2, 2017
Cask. Dark ruby ale with a decent light tan head. Nose a little vinegary with a touch of malt. Taste is malty, a bit of chocolate, and a little hop. Meh.

s_hartshorne (2784) - wakefield, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 22, 2014
Cask Salisbury ale house Manchester. Golden thin head aroma is nice sweet blueberry fruits. Taste is great blueberry really fruity sweet malts. Medium body. V tasty stuff.

BlackHaddock (7329) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 9, 2014
Cask pint in the newly refurbished Oddfellows, Wellington Shropshire. Good looking amber body with a full, lasting head. The nose and taste were of hedgerow fruits and red berries with plenty of malty sweetness to balance out semi-sourness of the fruits. Mid bodied and enjoyable, all the other beers I had on the night of 8th Aug 2014 were golden and light, this stood out as my beer of the evening because of it’s colour and flavour.

Hidden_Pooch (518) - Stratford, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - JUN 2, 2014
Cask at the Great British Beer Festival. I thought this to be pretty averages and forgettable, but not bad. She was a sweet fruity one and low on the bitterness, actually quite drinkable. Not that big of a body either. Not the best example of a bitter, but an alright beer.

mr_h (5476) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - AUG 19, 2013
Cask by handpump at State Bar, Glasgow - clear amber, thin creamy off-white head, sweet fruity aroma, no lacing, sweet berry fruit flavour, moderate carbonation, very pleasant easy to drink ale

ianwelby (1385) - SCOTLAND - SEP 4, 2012
Clear pint with a thin, creamy head. A very fruity taste that I found to be overly sweet, if I was to drink one again I’d have to be planning to nurse it a bit.

stravale (3065) - Co. Westmeath, IRELAND - AUG 5, 2012
Cask @ Abbey Inn, Kinloss 040812
Golden amber, creamy white head, good lacing
Aroma - very fruity, blackcurrant / blueberry, rather odd but likeable, some caramel malt in the background, pleasant
Taste - strong fruity berries, blackcurrants, blueberries, ok - the fruity flavour seems tacked on to a soft bitter with caramel malt and light biscuit. Its a weird beer that’s really quaffable.
Palate - soft carb, thin to medium body. Finish - bit dry, light biscuit, bitter hop, slight metallic edge though
Overall - OK other drinkers might dislike this but I actually like drinking this beer even if it’s so odd

dynamiteninja (1863) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - SEP 12, 2010
Cask at Black Bull in Paradise, Masham. Medium white head, clear dark-honeycomb body. Excellent lacing. Peach, hop, parma violets, floral. Bitter, with sweet notes. Dry finish.

madmitch76 (24791) - , Essex, ENGLAND - AUG 29, 2010
6th August 2010. GBBF.
Clear gold beer. Amazing fruit salad sweets nose! Carries over in to the flavour with sweet fruit salad sweets and a jarring note of smoke in the background. Semi dry finish. A bizarre beer - is it really meant to taste like this? Hard to dislike though!
