Drank while on a recent business trip to England -- on cask, decent English ale. Earthy simple good, but not great.

Pours a finger of head on a dark straw body.
The aroma is mild toffee, caramel and lemon.
The taste is sweet with lemon bitterness.
The texture is soft and smooth.

Dark amber hue. Light malty smell (honey, biscuit). More honey on the tongue with modest hop bitterness. Could do with a little more strength in my opinion but a good session bitter.

UPDATED: JUL 11, 2014 Drinkable. Decent. Dull. There’s my 3D for you - oh sorry it should be 3B. Looks OK; brown, good head and lacing. Smells like - nothing. Watery. Uninspiring taste. Nothing wrong with it, not much right either.

Royal Inn, Wootton Bassett. Spring, 2012. A pleasant dry bitter with a nutty quality and a lingering dusty finish. A satisfying and rewarding ale of quality and character.

Okay, it actually looks okay, but one bad view of the light reminded me of a stool sample, which was a touch off putting. Fairly nutty, mild malts, easy finish. Disappointingly thin, but also an easy drinker. Not a bad pint really, but certainly a disappointing example of the style really.

Tasted 20/4/2013 draught "Ye Old Red Lion", Chieveley, Berkshire. Poured a clear dark amber with a mahogany tint. The thin white bubbly head diminished quickly. Aroma-less. Tasted a mid-sweet throughout, no real bitterness. Light body bordering on watery. A smooth, soft, light ale with a bland finish.

Glowing copper coloured ale with a diminishing head. It’s a smooth dry bitter with a medium bitterness. Some malts in its aroma.

The landlord told me this was a man’s beer!! Haha! Apparently originates from a recipe first brewed in 1910. The flavours are well balanced, good hop and malt, but a bit unexpectedly sweet ... sort of hazelnut caramel sweet .... not quite the combination for me.
