Cask at the Robin Hood, Amblecote. Pours dark gold with a small head. Aroma is nutty straw and lemon. Taste has nutty orange and wheaty straw. Towey1989 (3531) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 30, 2015
Cask at The Green Dragon, Leek (JDW) A clear golden colour with a foamy white head. Aroma of red berries, some caramel, slight bready malts, a little grapefruit, subtle peach and spicy hops. Taste of grapefruit, some lemon, a little peach, slight caramel, bready malts and subtle spicy, herbal hops. Light bodied and an oily texture. A bittersweet, spicy, herbal hop bitterness in the finish. The taste is quite similar to Iceberg, little sweet at times but nicely hoppy and refreshing. Pretty good.

Cask @ Joshua Brooks, Manchester. Clear golden with a small head. Has a dry cherry, berry sweet nose with a more neutral, ever so slightly floral taste. OleR (4801) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 10, 2012

UPDATED: OCT 30, 2013 Cask conditioned Handpump Rowell Charter Rothwell. A golden beer with a whitish head and lacing. A bit sweet and yeasty on the nose. Some citrus notes in the mouth with biscuity malts. A little too sweet to be enjoyable. Score 2.9CamdenD (1204) - Madrid, SPAIN - NOV 14, 2011
Subsequent rating scored 3.4. Average becomes 3.1
This comes across as a decently-hopped bitter. Typed as a blond ale, the beer has a bit more yeasty palate than would a bitter, but still this is mostly a drinker. tdtm82 (1701) - Essex, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2010

Cask, Francis Newton. Brown sugar, caramel. Perfect for s cold Sheffield day. hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 11, 2008
Cask, gravity, at Bedford Beer Festival ’08. Copper gold with a small white head. Herby hop aroma with some straw. Intensely grassy, nettly, nutty taste with some soap lurking. Slight bitterness. Wouldn’t want another. But (I wrote at the time) it improved as it warmed.
