BeerCast_Rich (1906) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 18, 2012
[cask, The Haymarket Bar, Edinburgh] Brownish amber beer, nice thick white head. Sweet orange on the nose, grass, melon and a bit of earthy spice. Plenty of hop on the flavour too – this is a beefed up bitter. More citrus, apple and melon, caramel sweet malt and bready notes. Really enjoyable [21052012]

evergreen0199 (3452) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 29, 2012
Cask at The Feathers (Nicholson’s pub), Broadway, London. An amber coloured pour with a thin white head on top. Hoppy, fruity aroma. Tastes hoppy, slightly bitter, some caramel, fruity. Quite a decent one but would have been even better if it had been served in better condition.

EdKing (2629) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 17, 2012
Cask in The Dog & Duck. Light brown bitter. Nose is lightly citrous, apple, subtly malty. Taste is very nicely balanced simple bitter with citrous, floral and caramel malt.

3.5
Svesse (8694) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAY 17, 2012
(Cask at Dog & Duck, Soho, London, 22 April 2012) Amber colour with foamy, off-white head. Fruity, malty nose with notes of orange, apricots and citrus peel. Fruity, malty taste with apricots, orange, chewy malt and a fresh citric bitterness in the finish. Medium body, with a touch of sweetness. Well balanced and tasty. Nice one.

3.3
Fin (10746) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 14, 2012
Cask, handpump The Chequers, Oxford 14.05.12 Amber with a white head, good clarity. A little thin and a touch watery at first for the strength but the hoppiness starts to assert itself and there is a little bitterness. My mouth is still a little tingly from the fallout from my Johnny Cash burger at Atomic Burger, Cowley Rd. A7 A4 T6 P3 Ov13 3.3

strawman (26) - - MAY 14, 2012
Cask conditioned at The Philharmonic, Liverpool  An abundance of grapefruit and passionfruit in the nose. A very mellow taste with a soft mouthfeel. Notes of lemon on the palate and a little fresh green apple in the aftertaste. 

3.4
AshtonMcCobb (6785) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 9, 2012
On tap @ the Haymarket Bar. Pours amber with a proportionate head. The nose is of grapefruit and there is more grapefruit on the taste. The palate is medium bodied with a medium thick texture and a clean finish. Overall, a good beer.

3.6
DanielBrown (4527) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 25, 2012
Hand pulled at the Old Comtemptibles, Birmingham. Initially dull cardboard malt, but then blooms into a fresh feeling, artificial leather tang. Some tropical notes on finish, though weighted with boot. Solid.
