Ethereal (2421) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 30, 2009
Cask at The Rake 3rd Anniversary Stone Tasting, 6th August 09. Light golden colour. Very strong grassy hop aroma and flavour. A little funky but certainly quaffable. Packs a lot of flavour for a session strength beer.

Cask @ Bow Bar. Very flavorful for 3.6%. Light golden pour. Mild floral aroma. Floral fruitiness. Tasty

scotty (1186) - SCOTLAND - AUG 23, 2009
Pale straw, good head lasts well, hazy tho! Nose is poor, and palate is lacking, if anything theres just a hint of fruity hops. On handpump at a JDW in Motherwell, I think it was called Brandon Works.

harrisoni (18028) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 14, 2009
Cask handpull at Three Mariners, Hythe. Gold, slight haze, hoppy aroma, bit soapy on the hops, but the hop bite on the finish was good and it was a very refreshing pint as well. Just above average blond ale.

berkshirejohn (6373) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 6, 2009
Cask at the County Hotel (JDW), Ashford. Straw with a thin white head; grainy aroma; sweet grainy flavour with some sour fruit; gently bitter finish. Not very exciting.

Christian (13341) - Odense, DENMARK - JUL 27, 2009
Yellow with a small white head. Weak citrus aroma with grainy malt. Dry, fruity and malty flavour

BeerViking (4567) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 3, 2009
Cask/handpump at the Lord Moon of the Mall, London. Pale gold and slightly cloudy, with a fine clingy white head and a spicey-hop aroma. Flavour is initially sweet malt, but then quickly turns dry and gingery, with a dry-bitter finish. Quite light bodied, and yes, reasonably guzzlable...

downender (8481) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 23, 2009
Cask-conditioned at Mr Foleys Cask Ale House, Leeds 23/06/09. Gold in colour with a moderate, off-white head. Aroma of floral and grassy hops. Flavour started with a touch of sweet malts before some citrus hops and a dry finish. Enjoyable for the ABV.

wyzzywyz22 (2108) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - APR 4, 2009
Cask, Newcastle Arms. Pale gold colour with a medium white head and decent amount of lacing. Muted citrus hop aroma. Flavour was sweetish malt and quite light citrus. Brightish and lively mouthfeel with some fragrant hop in the finish. Unspectacular but glaggable.

weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAR 19, 2009
Cask at The Oxfford, Macclesfield. Nobody knows why there are two ffs. In fact, Ive never asked. Golden, little darker than a lager but pretty golden with a nice lasting white head. Very refeshing and tasty, a real pleasant surprise. Light citrus and light hops with nice mellow caramel notes. Good work.
