Cask; Regular.
Our best bitter made with a good dose of Challenger and EKG hops giving a well rounded flavour and aroma. Light copper in colour this beer is a firm favourite with our regulars.

jjsint (927) - Ely, Cambridgeshire, - SEP 20, 2013
Light translucent brown. Just enough head to be interesting. Faint woody and herby aroma. Taste however is a revelation. Exceptional bitterness with a sweet edge.

olio (6530) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 1, 2013
Cask @ OíConnelís, Tampere.
Pours clear copper color with a small head. Aroma of caramel, mild hops and fruits. Flavour of hay, malts and faint fruits. Decent malty body. A bit boring though.

erickok (3798) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - SEP 17, 2013
Misty golden brown body with grey head. Classic hop, very moderate and with biscuit malt backbone. Dull straightforward but admittedly bitter taste. Soft, not too dimmed carbonation. Drinks well. Itís okay. (Half pint at The Star Bishopís Stortford)

Leighton (11900) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 17, 2012
Cask at Baxterís Court, JDW, London. Pours clear yellow with a light, creamy-filmy white cap. Aroma holda light straw and lemony citrus. Light to medium sweet flavor with some faintly tangy lemon and decent grassy hay hops. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Finishes with a light, grassy hop bite and faintly toasted sugar, wet hay, and some lasting bitter grass. Not that bad, in fact.

leaparsons (8323) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 24, 2010
Cask, Criterion, Leicester. Dark amber with a firm small foam. Quite Autumnal looking. Aromas are weetabix and chocolate malts with fruit tea. Mildy spicy with earthy hops. Flavours are sweet and malty followed by dry, bitter hops. A proper traditional bitter. Good.

madmitch76 (16117) - , Essex, ENGLAND - AUG 15, 2010
15th July 2010. Chelmsford Beer Festival. Hazy gold beer. Light palate. The malt has a light smoky edge to it. Reasonable hop fruit. A little unusual when combined with the smoky malt. Finishes dry.

Rune (8500) - TromsÝ, NORWAY - MAY 8, 2009
Half pint, guest ale on cask at The White Star in Stoke. Nitro white head over an amber body with a slight haze. Rather anonymous in aroma and taste. Some moments of dried fruits and plain malts can be spotted. Short lived bitter finish. A comedown compared to all the Titanic brews at the pub (02.05.2009).

imdownthepub (10661) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 29, 2009
Cask conditioned at The Bartons Arms, Aston, Birmingham. Copper with white head. A standard session type bitter that is just simple, malty, a tad sweetish, but really quite plain.

DruncanVeasey (7316) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAR 23, 2009
Cask, The Crown, Nuneaton. Brilliant copper with a stable white collar. Slightly jammy dried fruit, coniferous dusty Everardís aroma. Very Everardís-like chew of sultana, Weetabix crumbs, faint rhubarb fruit. Some beeswax seeping into the aroma. Simple, clean and tasty BB.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 1, 2008
Cask at Wellington Arms, Bedford. Amber with a small white head. Dominant note in aroma and taste is a rather grim, dull cardboard. Quite sharp bitterness. Doesnít do its job, Iím afraid.
