harrisoni (19024) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 7, 2007
Cask gravity at Kingston BF 2007. Copper colour with lasting beige head. Citrusy bitter. Slightly creamy in mouth. Hop on finish is reasonably harsh. I like the York beers, but this is only slightly better than ordinary. Earthy strongish hop lifts it.

Sigmund (7764) - Tau, NORWAY - JUN 11, 2007
Cask conditioned at The Last Drop Inn, York Brewery’s first pub. Deep golden / amber colour, creamy head. Pleasant malty aroma with some fruity hops. Flavourwise this is a decent standard bitter with a smooth mouthfeel and decent hops in the finish. Okay.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 20, 2007
Cask at Wellington Arms, Bedford. Copper amber. Sweet fruity aroma, perhaps raspberry. Taste is peachy fruit with some gentle bitterness. The whole ensemble is reminiscent of one of those ’iced tea with a hint of fruit’ beverages. Not bad, but the overwhelming impression is a bit limp.

dmradus (227) - Ithaca, New York, USA - FEB 23, 2007
Cask at the Last Drop Inn, York. Copper-amber with a lasting one-inch white head that laces considerably. Quite a massive hop aroma, surprisingly. Notes of pine and grapefruit with slight grassiness, no real malt balance in the nose to speak of. Taste is upfront grapefruit and loads of pine, with a faint sourness that is not unpleasant. Starts sweet, hop citrus in the middle, finishes with a faintly bitter note and a moderate hint of chewy toffee malt. A little unbalanced on the side of the hops, but I get the impression that this pint was very fresh considering the resiny, dank hop notes I pulled from it. Really excellent especially considering the strength.

leaparsons (10657) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 5, 2006
Cask, Jersey Fest 06. Amber with a bubbly off-white foam. Aromas are light malts with custard. Fresh, zesty and fruity. Flavours are biscuit malts with zesty lemon and earthy hops. Light toffee with sweet pine hops. Very tasty for its strength.

ALLOVATE (3049) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 8, 2006
Handpump @ the Last Drop Inn, York, Nth Yorkshire.
Poured a light copper, sparkling, with a limp, short-lived, soapy white head. Sulphur and butter on the nose which dissipated quickly. In the mouth it’s buttery slick with some intense toffee flavours that were balanced by soft notes of wood, nuts and salt and a late gift of bitter, raspy hops. The flavours softened the more I drank of it. Flat and lifeless with a smooth, albeit buttery finish that was reasonably short. Not what I expected at all and I don’t think it was in it’s prime when I got to taste it. One for a re-rate if the chance arises.

Nekronos (4174) - Xalapa, MEXICO - JUL 30, 2006
Veyr bitte,r not ba din taste but too bitter for me, my taste is more for malties.

Finn (7837) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAY 30, 2006
Cask at Last Drop Inn York 3 May 06. Golden colour. Citrus dominating the aroma. A bit unbalanced. Not the best beer from an otherwise good brewery.

DJMonarch (9179) - Northwich, Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAR 5, 2006
Cask Stillage at St Phillips Social Club, Sheffield 04/10/2003 Amber golden coloured with some wheat and fruit aromas. Slightly dry malt finish.

AAO (102) - Næstved, DENMARK - JAN 5, 2005
Tastet in York Brewery. Golden redish color, little creamy white head. Weak bitter aroma. Sour taste, very bitter finish.
