cask@theAlfred(Burton Bridge), Burton-on-Trent. Dark amber beer with small head and good lacing. Aroma of malts. Taste is very malty, some sweetness and a bigger alcohol kick than the ABV warrants, giving some warmth. Medium bodied. Decent.

snzcujo (282) - RUSSIA - NOV 7, 2012
Tasted from the cask @Burton Bridge Brewery, on 07/11/2012. Pours of lovely super clear copper color with a small creamy head. Mouthfeel is smooth and light carbonated. The taste is quite caramely and flowery, definitely a bit boozy in the end. Neutral. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Beersiveknown (2473) - NORTHERN IRELAND - MAR 2, 2012
Cask at burton bridge inn fruity, sweet, lots of malt, not much hop character, more like a strong mild than an esb but very quaffable.

JoeMcPhee (8188) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 8, 2011
Cask at Get Real NY 2011. Amber pour - kind of watery aroma. Not a whole lot of malt character. A bit of light oxidation as well. Thin-bodied and lacking in hoppiness as well. I was hoping for so much more from this but it’s pretty bland.

Lubiere (9428) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 26, 2011
A dark amber ale with a thin off white head. In aroma, chalky and grassy, lager like. In mouth, a nutty malt with with very European hopping, saaz hops, Golding, no citrus or floral qualities, dryer than expected. Cask at Get Real NY, March 19th 2011.

Sigmund (4812) - Tau, NORWAY - MAR 24, 2011
UPDATED: APR 1, 2011 Cask at the Number Twenty-2, Darlington, as Burton Bridge Burton Ale, but I assume this is the same beer. Copper colour, creamy off-white head. Malty aroma and flavour, nutty and biscuity notes. The aroma also has some fruity notes. Tolerably well hopped finish.
