Theydon_Bois (16903) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - SEP 22, 2012
Cask at the Raglan Arms, Rugby - 19/09/12. Badged as Belvoir Best. Clear golden with a decent white head - really looks the part for a cask bitter! Very muted nose, really little to say other than a little malt. Taste is a big improvement on the nose with toasted malts, caramel, hops amd a little smokiness. Medium bodied, smooth and creamy, nice feel to this bitter.

DruncanVeasey (8012) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - DEC 14, 2010
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2010 Cask handpull, The Slug and Lettuce, Leicester. Honey amber, slim lacing slick. Very discreet, resiny aroma of pine needles, evergreen, orange. Full honeyed mouthfeel, cashew malt, spicy and delicately resinous hop like licking aniseed-infused pine sap off a piece of flatpack furniture. Probably. Hugely drinkable and subtly flavour-packed. Everything a BB should be.

Cask conditioned - handpump Salutation Inn Nottingham A copper coloured beer with an off white head and lacing. A grassy aroma and a full bitter taste. No real fruit or citrus notes at all but a very fine bitter.

Ethereal (2421) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAR 2, 2008
Gravity cask at the Battersea Beer Festival, 8th Feb 2008. Very clear amber appearance. Great aroma of flowers and apples which leads into a taste of honey and herbs. Very smooth on the tongue too. This is a fantastic light beer.

JorisPPattyn (9475) - Ursel, BELGIUM - SEP 10, 2007
Cask Transparant, but decent fluffy head, over foxy-amber beer. Bit of caramel, UK hops, dry hop sacks, old hessian. Nutty & caramel flavour, but light & relieved by some good aroma hops added. A bit light for a Best Bitter. Quite some slickness, even sticky, caramel ending. Light bodied, but nice, invitingly tasting bitter.
