a_cross (525) - Poole, Dorset, ENGLAND - FEB 17, 2014
Bottle; brown, clear, no head; I bought this after some marvellous cask Milk Stout the previous weekend, but this disappointed; crisp, bitter, a bit of toffee and some earthy hops - refreshing enough, but like many standard bitters it lacked interest when in bottles; probably miles better on cask.

Good old fashioned bitter. Bags of flavour. Malty toffee and a dry bittered finish. Nice

ladnewton (1325) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 26, 2013
Cask at the Euston Tap, London on 20th November 2013. Copper with thin loose off-white film and lacing. Sweet caramel and fruity aroma. Very fruity and malty in-mouth with citrus fruit, berries and biscuits. Spectrum heads towards bittersweet citrus tang in finish. Zingy mouthfeel, medium to light body.

Theydon_Bois (7002) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - DEC 13, 2013
Cask at the Old Fountain, cheers to JD for the pour, 09/12/13. Clear copper with a good sized frothy light beige head, good lacing ensues. Nose is bready malt, toffee, light hop notes, orange peel. Taste comprises toffee, straw, biscuit, bread dough, bready malt, hoppy backnotes. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, dry grassy finale with lingering bitterness. Decent bitter.

maneliquor (2786) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - DEC 10, 2013
Cask at Old Fountain. Clear amber pour with a small, foamy beige head leaving nice lacing. Nose has loads of nuts running through it, light spice, stewed citrus, zest and moderate toffee. Taste is loaded with plenty of toffee and nuts, lemon peel, biscuit, light aniseed and citric sweetness. Decent stuff

Svesse (5875) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - DEC 3, 2013
(Cask at Euston Tap, Euston, London, 20 Nov 2013, as "Seven", or "Severn" as I think the board said) Reddish amber colour with brief, beige head. Malty nose with toast, rye bread and orange peel. Malty taste with notes of citrus, toast, dried fruit, prunes and a balanced bitterness in the finish. Medium body, with a touch of sweetness. Well balanced and tasty. Quite nice.

Juha (28) - Surrey, ENGLAND - OCT 22, 2013
Super bright ambery copper. Aroma is roasted caramel. Taste is bitter crystal malt but too dry to be called toffee-like. Very moorish and hops are a bit grassy. A very nice boring brown beer.

elbernays (312) - IRELAND - AUG 22, 2013
Pours clear amber. Foam head reddish. Sweet tangy grape and mango aroma. Plenty of malt. Sweet taste with minimal bitterness. Refreshing and enjoyable if a little uncomplicated.

Amber pour with a thin lace. Strong malt flavour with caramel notes. Slight tangy finish.
