I liked the fact that it is really bitter, as it says in the label of the Cask. It is a little cloudy the head, and like foam.

Cask at Akkurat, Stockholm. Clear dark golden, topped with a white sheet. Vague sourish aroma of apple-skins and sulphur. Mineraly watery flavour of orange-peels and grains. Almost no body. Quite bitter aftertaste of apple-skins and oranges. Gloomy bitter.

Dark amber color. Some malt aroma and taste, but not very strong. The bitterness is more respectable.

Had at down under pub with Micheal. Surprisingly smooth. Didn’t think I’d like it but I did. Very nice finish.

I had this on tap and it was okay. The malt tone and bitterness is here but nothing stands out. It definately has a dry character but doesn’t seem as creamy as other bitters.

Refreshing, but without too much character. A nice hoppy finish, the trade mark of a proper English bitter. Cask at Ye Old Mitre, London.

Cask at the George Inn, London: Pours a clear deep copper bronze with a nicely-lacing white head. Subtle toffee and hop nose. Body starts with some maltiness, thinning toward the semi-bitter, lightly metallic, watery finish. An ok bitter, that has drinkability as its best attribute.
