On cask in the Bree Louise. Poured a very unappealing murky brown with no head. Aroma of sweet malt. Medium body at best. Flavour of a very tired standard bitter. Dr. astringent aftertaste. Not good.

UPDATED: MAR 12, 2013 Cask conditioned handpump Southampton Arms London 12/10/12. A nut brown coloured beer with an off-white head. Fruity sweet and hoppy in the nose. Sweet and a little sour in the mouth. Mainly malty but with berry hop flavours. Flavoursome but not totally in tune. Score 3.2
Subsequent rating scored 3.7. Average becomes 3.4

imdownthepub (10141) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 6, 2012
Cask conditioned at The Southampton Arms, Kentish Town, London. Brown with no head. Tartish, almost sour beer, some earthy, maltiness but this was close to being off I think. Not good.

jackl (4567) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - FEB 19, 2012
Cask @ The Old Coffee House. Chestnut brown color with a modest white head. The nose is malty caramel, brown sugar sweetness, dark fruits, blackberry. The taste is sweet, more brown sugar and classic crystal malt flavor, long lightly-dry finish. Pretty robust body for a bitter, subtle carbonation. Overall, this was actually a very flavorful bitter served in excellent condition. Respect to the Coffee House for keeping a nice pint despite slightly dingy surroundings.
