Cask Conditioned, at the Black Jug, Horsham. Golden amber with a rich full head. Lovely beer, full body, juicy hop bitterness, lovely length on the palate. Had several with Maca to be sure.

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!)

wheresthepath (2371) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2014
Cask at the Hope Tap (JDW), Reading at 5%. Attached to the Liberation American Brown Ale tap- it was only after intense pressure that the barman admitted they’d connected up the wrong barrel and it was actually this- damn ’Spoons. Turned out to be a lucky error though as it was a bit of a cracker. Poured deep gold with a thick white head. Lovely smooth and creamy caramel malts up front give a great mouthfeel. There’s a big spicy zing and sweet orange, passion fruit and melon after. Lovely stuff, but still annoyed at missing out a Jersey rate.

DanielBrown (4528) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 7, 2010
Hand pulled at the Billiard Hall, West Bromwich. Tried side by side with Amber Rambler, which it comfortably outflanked. Good balanced hops, with lemon and watery sweetness to equalise. Very refreshing and drinkable and compared to the Amber Rambler it seemed much fresher and more satisfying.

3.5
leaparsons (10699) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - APR 20, 2010
Cask, Last Plantagenet, Leicester. Golden with a small head. Aromas are toffee and stewed pear with some chocolate. Bready yeast with citrus, hay and hints of fudge. Flavours are sweet chocolate and toffee with dry biscuit malts. Quite fruity with raisins and sweetened grapefruit. Very peppery with a nice sparkle on the palate. Dry on the finish with grassy hops.

Huddersfield Beer Festival. Copper coloured ale. Has a high tropical fruit aroma and taste. Medium-full bodied.
