maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - AUG 11, 2007
Cask conditioned - handpump - GBBF 2007. A golden coloured beer with a fairly decent hoppy aroma. The taste is dry and a bit farty. Very ordinary and typically English.

downender (8517) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 5, 2009
Cask-conditioned at the Portcullis, Bristol, 04/10/09. Amber coloured with an off-white head. Sweetish aroma of summer fruit and caramel, with some orange hops. Flavour of sweet malts with a dry finish. Ok.

Svesse (8454) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - AUG 23, 2008
(Cask at GBBF, London, 6 Aug 2008) Copper colour with brief, white head. Malty, fruity nose with apricots and earthy, dusty hops. Fruity taste with notes of apricots, orange and generous doses of earthy hops in a fairly bitter finish. Solid malt foundation. Fairly dry. Probably not the best beer in Britain, but still nice.

DruncanVeasey (8225) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - DEC 4, 2008
UPDATED: SEP 7, 2010 1) Faversham Spoons. Tawny amber with white halo. Lime and leafy hops on the nose. Surprisingly earthy citrus hop with a gnaw of chlorophyll. Bit soily. Clean, abrupt and bitter on the end. Good balancing vanilla, tea and honeyish malt. Lemony, earthy, solidly hopped. Touch of malt nuttiness. Tasty. 2) The Red Lion, Burbage. Caramel, choc, slight hop hum aroma. Brass with draped white lid. Lots of earth, wood sap, mouldy choc. Bittersweet creamy nut linger. Nice. 737313.

chriso (7533) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 23, 2004
Pale amber colour. Not much in the way of aroma, but a very pleasing dry, clean hop flavour with a hint of malt and some bitterness, leading into a crisp, dry finish. In other words, just as a session bitter should be. Another good beer from an impressive brewery. Cask (gravity), Catford Beer Festival.

larsga (7497) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 20, 2010
Medium coarse offwhite head. Brown body. Faint malty sugary aroma. Delicate sweet-dry malty roasty wooden taste with resiny floral notes. Mild, smooth mouthfeel. Mid-bodied. Dry roasty caramelly aftertaste with dandelion floral notes. Nice, subtle, and drinkable. (0.33l cask at Akkurat, and at some Bishop’s Arms pub.)

SaintMatty (7228) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JAN 15, 2009
Cask (Railway Arms, Alton) - Amber/gold in colour. Malty and slightly fruity aroma. The taste is grainy at first with malt dominating but then becomes more hoppy with citrus notes being evident in the finish.

On tap at Akkurat. It had a light taste of yeast and flowers. Similar taste, a bit mild but easy to drink.
