12th November 2009
Spoons Fest. Slightly hazy amber beer. Light crispy palate. Even malt base with lively citrus fruits on top. Lime, orange, tangerine and mandarin. Not really hop bitter. Clean, refreshing and a bit different.

imdownthepub (14547) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2009
Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Darkish amber with slight head. Sour fruits dominated this, tartish cherry, acidic and a little unpleasant. Probably not at its best in this Spoons. Not particularly good.

3.2
leaparsons (10546) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 4, 2009
Cask, William Wygston, Wigston. Amber brown with a cream head. Aromas are cookie dough with berries and citrus. Some weetabix with yeast and earthy hops. Flavours are toffee and chocolate with peppery light pine and grapefruit hops. Green apple with a fair degree of acidity. Earthy with some tea, A decent traditional bitter.

DJMonarch (9179) - Northwich, Cheshire, ENGLAND - NOV 26, 2009
Cask Handpump at the Swim Inn JDW, Sheffield 14/11/2009 Lots of fruit aroma. Copper coloured and fruity with some alcohol present. A little sourness in a hoppy bitter and slightly peppery lasting malt finish.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - NOV 13, 2009
Cask conditioned handpump Saracens Head Daventry. A copper coloured beer with a red hue and a thick whitish head and lacing. The aroma is flowery fruity whilst the taste is fizzy fruity. Berry notes throughout from the Bramling Cross. A hint of acidity maybe. It’s ok but nowt special.

2.9
downender (8658) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 9, 2009
Cask-conditioned at the Commercial Rooms, Bristol 3/11/09. Deep amber in colour with a moderate white head. Malty aroma of red currants and caramel, with some earthiness and bitter finish. Ok.

3.3
DruncanVeasey (8226) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - DEC 8, 2009
The Baron. Foggy copper draped with lace. Hazelnut and damp leaves aroma dusted with choc. Another one of those reddish, slightly dank Crystal malt-infused (probably) efforts hinting at sesame, chocolate, vinous fruit... unexciting but pretty good.

3.3
MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 19, 2010
A Mes rate. Cask at Baker St ’Sporks.
Copper coloured with a good off white head. Good balance of sweet yet slightly earthy malt and a pleasant citric bitterness leading to a long grassy finish. Straight forward but drinkable and reasonably enjoyable.

3.4

Cask at the Old Manor (JDW), Bracknell. Bright amber gold in colour with a dense cream head; aroma of fruti and ginger; peppery taste a tfirst with a sweet, fruity, malt body; warming peppery ginger finish. Very pleasant.
