madmitch76 (25537) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JUN 26, 2010
14th April 2010. Clear amber beer, tiny head. Softish sry palate. Nicely balanced. Fruity start with sweetish pineapple and orange and even a little melon Dry even malt underpins and then some hop bitterness kicks in fairly strong in the finish and lingers in the aftertaste.

harrisoni (19318) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 12, 2007
Cask gravity at Reading BF 2007. Deep chestnut with lasting off white head. Very malty, maybe not fully brewed out. Some malty fruit in mouth. Some sultana/raisin, bit juicy, bit dry. Fine.

Cask (Black Door, Helsinki, Helsinki)
Lovely rich sweet fruity aroma for a bitter - swear there are almost cherries in it, thw fruitiness is to tangible. Looks great for a simple ruddy bitter - lovely persistent spongy head. First sip gave me a wow, not sure why, but it was just an outburst of joy from my psyche to have the drink in my mouth, this is vastly better than my prior mikkeller mess in every way. Such a soft palate, beautiful gentle carbonatio. A lovely rich malty body, some clear caramelly barley sweetness, and a really full earthy twiggy bitterness - lovely! Slight mushroominess accompanies the dry resiny finish. I did feel the effects of the alcohol in the mikkeller k:rap, but this is exuding a wonderful drinkability - every sip makes me want to take another, and the mellowness that the "yum" provides makes me feel soberer, just with a sense of well-being that bitter is still being brewed like this. (And of course that it’s available to me too!)

imdownthepub (15326) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 10, 2010
Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Gold with white head. One of the better festival beers, some hop notes, deeper malty body with a freshness belying its age. Moderate fruity notes. A decent drinker.

Stuu666 (14806) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 17, 2016
Cask at the Guildford arms. Pours clear amber, nose is burnt toffee, biscuit, pine, taste is dry, toffee, light fruit, quite bitter.
