Theydon_Bois (7941) - The íSham, Surrey, - OCT 16, 2013
Cask at the Sussex Arms, Twickenham Green, 12/10/13. Clear golden with a good sized off white head. Nose is lightly vegetal, grass, light citrus. Taste improves with hop notes, citrus zest, orange pith, lemon rind, toasted malt. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, dry grassy bitterness in the finish. Adequate GB, the nose let this one down for me.

Fin (7276) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 29, 2012
Cask, handpump at The Hope and Anchor, Bristol, 28.01.12 Clear gold in colour, though with a pub that is primarily lit by candlelight I may be a little off with this description, but it looks great. There is a buzzy spiciness in the mouth, touch of ginger, quite dry, bitter pithiness starting to show, some dustiness, likeable. A7 A5 T7 P4 Ov13 3.6

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 21, 2010
A Mes rate. Cask at the Southampton.
Mid gold colour with a short lived white head. A little basic really. Good bitterness, plenty of earth. Nicely citric giving some good lemony notes. Itís good and certainly well balanced Iím just feeling rather underwhelmed. I think Iím being too influenced by the name. I canít help but expect big hops, what I get is something much straight forward. If it was called Art Brew Bitter, Iíd have been really impressed. As it is, Iím left wanting HOPS! Name fail, Iím fickle.

ladnewton (1398) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 20, 2010
Cask at the Southampton Arms, London on 20th July 2010. Pale amber with thin diminishing whitish head. Donít be fooled by the malty aroma as a hop kick strikes like a bolt of bitter lightning across the tastebuds.. Cuttingly bitter with vegetable notes, mainly broad beans; dry mouthfeel and long lasting severe bitterness. An intense pint, packing a real punch!
