Just what a great beer should be. Delightful. I don’t see not marking high when something deserves it. They’ve done a fine job.

harrisoni (17351) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 16, 2007
Cask gravity at Bowl Inn, Charing. Copper with thin beige head. Delicate roasted caramel and earthy hop aroma. Very tasty session bitter. Good earthy bitterness on finish, quite citrusy, but good malt balance. Terrific session bitter from one of the better English breweries.

Cask at Akkurat, Stockholm. Amber colour. Medium bodied with rounded mouthfeel. Citric and juicy notes of grass and toffee as well as red currant. Dry, with somewhat resiny finish holding medium bitterness. Well balanced.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 28, 2011
On cask at Cloisters. An amber ale with a lacy beige head. Aroma is a little smoky with caramel, chocolate and Arnott’s milk arrowroot biscuits. Similar flavours with mild carbonation and a fairly dry finish. Long caramel and hay like linger. I quite enjoyed this, especially the milk arrowroot biscuit nose which was a first for me.

Bottle from Aldi. I rather enjoyed this. It is an unashamed traditional Bitter. Nice bright ginger colouring, with brusque salty arome. Taste of bitter, British hops. Some small pith, but mainly crusty seashell sour malt quench. Spot. Hit. Yep.

SilkTork (5567) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - JUN 26, 2003
UPDATED: SEP 19, 2004 June, 2003: Cask, Dog & Bone, Gillingham. Not in best condition - a bit stale and slightly sour. Beyond that this is a sweetish malt based bitter with a small hop finish. Not great. [2.3]
Sept, 2004:The Market Porter Gathering. Oaky and slightly sweet. Good character. Sulphur aroma. The oaky, sweaty quality of this beer means it needs to be served in good condition to be fully appreciated. Had this a few times during the Gathering. Best beer of the night. [3.4]

UPDATED: JUN 4, 2012 Cask conditioned - handpump - Malt Shovel, Northampton. A dark copper coloured beer with an off-white head. The aroma is malty with notes of crackers. A crunchy crackeer like maltiness to the taste. Really easy to drink and very sessionable. Tasty stuff. Score 3.5
Subsequent rating scored 3.3. Average becomes 3.4
