pivnizub (10085) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - OCT 18, 2008
On draught at The Hope, Wandsworth (next door to Chez Bruce): Amber, small , stable and lacy off-white head; distinctive worty-hoppy nose with a - not unpleasant - barnyardy touch, pretty light bodied, moderate to stronger bitter-sweet flavour; increasing fruitiness and maltiness in the lingering bitter-sweet finish. Good session beer and a good appetizer before You enter the the culinary heaven of Chez Bruce............

Cask, White Lion, West Kirby. Amber colour with a medium creamy white head. Thin aroma; touch of yeast & malt . Sweetish and clean flavour with a dose of more malt and some light fruit. Medium bitter finish. All pretty straightforward and unremarkable, but drinkable.

Drinkable but bland. Have never understood beers like this...why be so unmemorable?

Cask Salmon Galashiels. Certainly hoppy, but the overall experience is marred by an overwhelming harsh citrus acidity.

wheresthepath (2097) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAY 16, 2008
UPDATED: APR 21, 2009 [on draught at the Old Road Tavern, Chippenham, Wiltshire] Tastes more like a golden ale at first but with a rough-and-ready earthy follow through. Drinkable but nothing special. Re-rate 21/4/2009 at the Peaks Inn, Castleton: Amber, mineral taste with some sulphur, leads into a very bitter, earthy finish. Not to my taste. c6

Cask handpump. A golden colour with a floral, yeasty aroma. A nice floral hop taste with hints of citrus and yeast. A nice easy to drink bitter.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JAN 10, 2008
UPDATED: DEC 27, 2009 Cask conditioned - handpump - Fellows, Morton & Clayton - Nottingham. A light amber coloured beer with a whitish thick head and lacing. The aroma is lightly hoppy whereas the taste is clean and balanced and typically Yorkshire in style. I can see the appeal of this sessionable beer which I haven’t done in the past.Score 3.0
Subsequent rating scored 2.8. Average becomes 2.9

Pours amber with creamy head. Not much in the aroma. The flavor has some reasonable bitterness.
