wildebeest (13) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 28, 2008
Cask at The Eagle, Ravenscourt Park. A lot more golden coloured than I expected, very sweet and a reasonable amount of bittering hops, although not particularly well balanced. A strong citric aftertaste was a little off putting after a couple.

berkshirejohn (6278) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 18, 2008
UPDATED: JAN 12, 2012 Cask at the Old Manor (JDW), Bracknell. Cloudy amber with a white head; grapefruit aroma, and grapefruit flavour; slightly sweet with a sustained bitter finish. Not complex but a good pint. 18-Jan-2008 - 7/3/7/4/15=3.6

Rerate: Cask at the Gig House (JDW), Wokingham at an ABV of 4.5%. Hazy golden-brown with a thin white head; herbal aroma with a whiff of caramel; green vegetable flavour with some sweet caramel; then a short burst of grassy hops following by a lingering dry finish. Overall a very "green" beer. 12-Jan-2012 - 6/3/6/4/10=2.9

Joeh (2049) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JAN 16, 2008
Cask conditioned at Wetherspoons, High Wycombe. A sweet, malty bitter with little bitterness and a somewhat citric freshness to it. The sweetness is typical Titanic but a good beer all the same.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 13, 2008
A Mes rate: Cask at Baker Street Sporks.
Slightly hazy amber with a decent white head and lace. Hoppy aroma with wheat straw and some lemon. Odd meaty sanwich note in the flavour that Im really not sure about. Bitterish finish with some malt but no real balance. Lots of wheat and straw. A little sticky. Not my thing.

Fin (10039) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 13, 2008
Cask at the Penny Black, JDW, Bicester, Oxon 12-01-08 Mid golden, with the merest of a haze, an aromatic beer, florally hops, honey in the mouth, but there is a nice citrusy underbelly to this beer. A really very good drop indeed.
