Erzengel (2531) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - AUG 13, 2014
Cask @ GBBF14. Smooth nice bitter-ale start. Fresh, nice ale aroma with a smooth maltiness, that is not extremely dry, but still nice and easy to drink. Fresh and smooth. The aftertaste is even floral, nice smooth bitter malts, fresh, deep, easy to drink. Great Bitter!

Cask @ The Plough, Doncaster. Light copper brown, hazy (from the cold) with a small white head. Massive lacing. Very faint fruity aroma. Taste is a fairly straightforward bitter, getting more bitter through the taste profile. Not all that exciting. Looking at the high rates, I wonder what I’m missing...

wimpyjoe (3694) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 30, 2013
Found as Reliance Best Bitter at the said premises in Leeds. This is a mid-brown ale although only with a medium bitterness. Next to no head and a good session brew.

JorgeLee (1169) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 23, 2013
Cask in the Marquis of Granby W1. It’s just like watching Brazil (or the weather is, at least)! Dark brown colour, white foam. Very malty bitter, notes of toffee and nuts, quite bitter, fairly full taste given abv. Sweetish finish, which made it less moreish, I’d have preferred it a bit drier. A good Yorkshire bitter, if not entirely to my taste.

Cask, William Wygston, Wigston. Golden brown with a thin head. Aromas are toasted and biscuit malts with earthy, leafy spicy hops. Some marmalade with woody notes. Flavours are jammy fruit with spritzy yeast and bitter lemon. Peppery and leafy with some green notes. Fruity bitterness and dry to finish. Nice. .
