Peterborough cask ale festival. Traditional Pale Ale 4.8% - Clean tasting pale ale. Smooth and sweet with a good fresh hoppy balance. Amounts to a good ale.
Cask handpull The Castle, London. Advertised on a type written unbranded pump clip as a traditional IPA. Copper, thin white head. Oh dear, this isn’t good either. Some butter toffee, some vague spritzey hop on finish. Aroma is terrible, a chemical edge to it. Thinnish in mouth. Finish has a bit of a buttery tingle to it. Poor. weaselkenievil (1609) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - SEP 24, 2008
Wincle Beer festival. Orangey amber served flat as an ironing board. Little hops and citrus notes, bitter finish is quite mild and hoppy. Not bad, pleasant surprise seeing as the first four I asked for weren’t on. Mungo (2470) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - MAY 25, 2007
Cask conditioned @ South Western Arms, Soton. Pleasant fruity hops and citric tang spoiled slightly by a greasy feel. Otherwise fairly good. DonMagi (5593) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 16, 2007
Aroma is pale malts with grassy/peachy hops. Taste is similar well balanced and remarkably drinkable for the %. GarethYoung (1111) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - JAN 14, 2007
[Cask from The Three Judges] Graint malt character, some citric notes. fresh baked bread on the palate and a dry finish.

2. Cask Handpump at the Brunswick, Derby 27/07/2007
Fruit aroma. Golden coloured strong in alcohol hoppy and fruity with some sourness. Bitter lasting malt finish. JonMoore (2067) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 27, 2004
Cask, Swan in the Rushes, Loughborough. Golden brown coloured with a great creamy head, immaculate lacing. Malty upfront, but ultimately well balanced. Good beer from a good brewery. DanielBrown (4563) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 24, 2004
Gravity at the Rail Ale Beer Festival, Barrow Roundhouse, Chesterfield. Light brown bitter, no head and a honey aroma. Silky sweet malt and honey, with some brown sugar. Thick, treacly texture, no real finish or aftertaste. Some feta and breadsticks too. Average but palatable beer. SilkTork (5925) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - APR 3, 2004
Crown & Thistle, Gravesend. Orange amber. Slightly sweet palate. Juicy orange hinted fruit up front, hops come in for a beautiful balance leading into a gently tangy and satisfying finish which sadly doesn't linger quite long enough. Mmmm. Freshness bursts out. Beers truly shine in this excellent pub.
