Wezzielad (44) - Ilkley, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 22, 2017
On draught at Head of Steam, Leeds. A deep copper colour, not too different to landlord. The smell is like an organic beer, as in it has a bit of the au naturale ingredients used in it. Also a bit of straw on the smell. Again on the taste, a bit organic, quite creamy. The taste is generally a bit sweet tasting/caramel with a strong (nice ) after taste, a slight whisky taste in there. Not sure Id rush back to it but it's a solid beer nonetheless.

Desverger (12941) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 28, 2017
[email protected] Bar, Copenhagen - Amber pour with nice big white head. Toasted malty aroma and taste, some cereal, toasted sweet malty, some caramel, great condition, twiggy hoppy bitter finish.

Ungstrup (38414) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 24, 2017
Cask. An amber beer with a beige head. The aroma has notes of hops, straw, malt, and caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of toffee, malt, flowers, and hops, leading to a bitter finish.

Mr_Pink_152 (5548) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - APR 23, 2017
Tried at the Three Horseshoes, Waddington. Amber colour with a thick white head. Aroma biscuit and malt with a light fruitiness. Taste is caramel light sweet. Light body.

tfredvik (2040) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 16, 2017
Clear copper body with a small, short-lived, off-white head that disappears completely. Moderate aroma of caramel, toasted malt and generic fruity notes. Moderate flavour of caramel, toasted malt, fruitiness and red berries, and burnt sugar in the back. Light to mid-bodied, flat carbonation (with just hints of a bubble or two). I fully understand that hand pulled cask ales tend to be very softly carbonated, but this one is simply too flat for my liking.
[half pint from cask @ The Crown, Little Missenden, Buckinghamshire]

BlackHaddock (7690) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 12, 2017
Two cask pints in The Masons Arms, Gargrave Yorkshire on 7th Apr 2017. Copper hue to the amber body, looked good with a full blanket of off-white foam on each pour. Malty based Bitter with some fruity hop action throughout. Very drinkable.

FatPhil (17080) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 23, 2017
Draught (Old Bookbinders, Oxford)
Sweet malty bitter. Nice fruity esters. Soft palate, carbonation low. Finish has gentle bitter hops, a touch of butteriness. Pretty simple quaff, but actually a pretty decent bitter.

ladnewton (2039) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 31, 2017
Cask at the Red Lion & Sun, London on 31st January 2017. Copper with thin, off-white foam decaying to nothing. Sweet malt aroma with some leafy herbiness. Fruitiness and biscuit malt in-mouth. A sweet finish of berry fruits and biscuit malt. Light body and mouthfeel.
