tombyars (1410) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - OCT 3, 2011
Tasted this in The Esquire House, Glasgow (JDW) in June 2010. Cask, handpump dispense. Crystal clear pale copper in colour with a thin white head. Short aroma of thin crisp apple. Thin mouthfeel and poor lacing. Thin pale malt base gives digestive biscuit with dried raisin fruit. Thin bodied aftertaste is dry and metallic. Tang of hop resins continue into the dry bitter finish with oak wood tanins. An ok session bitter but nothing exceptional.

chriso (7428) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 27, 2011
Cask (gravity dispense) at Wandsworth Common Beer Festival @ Le Gothique on 25 March 2011. Amber colour. No head to speak of. Quite fruity and rather sweet. Hop presence in the flavour is quite modest. Soft mouthfeel. Nothing particularly wrong with it but too sweet and short of bite for my taste - could do with pepping up a bit.

TEJA (1371) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUN 3, 2010
Cask at Turf Tavern, Oxford. Lasting medium smooth foam. Red-cupper color. Dry wood/pine needle hop aroma. Nice English hop taste that lasts long time. There is also fruit esthers and a litle caramell. Alltogether an good refreshing beer with a balanced bitternes.

wheresthepath (1615) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAY 20, 2010
[Cask at the Back of Beyond] Light amber, moderate white head, slight fizz (superb condition - well done Wetherspoons!). Apple and caramel at first followed by a tasty spiciness. Straw and earth come through in a moderately bitter finish that is well balanced against the sweet start. Decent bitter - although obviously very variable in both quality and flavour based on earlier reviews!

imdownthepub (10631) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 20, 2010
Cask conditioned? at a Wetherspoons. Amber with slight head. this tasted old, tired and frankly a little off. Spoons at its worst unfortunately. Floral fruity, tart and poor.

berkshirejohn (4673) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 12, 2010
Cask at the Back of Beyond (JDW), Reading. Gold with a dense cream head; clean grainy aroma; fresh, sweet, grassy, flavour; lacking finish. A rather basic bitter.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 23, 2008
Cask at Wellington Arms, Bedford. Amber with a small white head. Sweet malt aroma with some pear fruit coming through. Fresh citric tatse with just enough bitterness in the finish. Another tasty, easy drinking session beer, which B & T do so well.
