Geuzelambix (243) - København, - JUL 29, 2012
The classic Welsh Brains. Undeniable British but not as flat on bottle as often seen on cask. Very mild. Doesn’t insult anyone. Pleasent and a little dull.

Danev76 (508) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 11, 2014
Stale aroma. Cloudy amber colour with ok head. Big malt flavour up front with smooth finish. Medium to heavy body with medium to high carbonation.

damemphis (6) - FINLAND - MAY 31, 2014 does not count
Bad, way too plain, no foam to mention and with Finnish prices (7,90 eur) really not worth the money.

Very bland. Didn’t look good either. No taste to speak of and will definitely not drink again

Passable ale, though slightly fizzy. Cask, from memory, superior to the bottled version.

vipinvelp (2193) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - JAN 8, 2014
Clear copper with small white foam ring. Aroma and taste are of decent English bitter. Short lasting aftertaste. (Velp 201401)

DruncanVeasey (7191) - NUNEATON, Top 18, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - DEC 10, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 16, 2013 Drab brown bitter with Weetabix, toffee and spruce notes... but a good one. Pours brilliant russet topped with a shrinking atoll of frith. Wasn’t he in The Hobbit? Aroma of vegetable stock, watery gravy, cheap tinned bitter, Crunchy bar warmed in an aluminium saucepan. For a mass produced pasteurised brown bitter from Bulko Spar this is sneakingly complex. Pine cone, butter and hedgerow. Sometimes drab brown bitter just hits the spot.
