mjs (6292) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 1, 2016
(Cask, gravity, at Black Door, 20160701) The beer poured deep golden and clear. Its head was small and white. Aroma had earth, toffee and malts. Palate was medium bodied with low carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, toffee, earth, grass and bitterness. Aftertaste was hoppy and bitter. A good hoppy English ale.

Joeh (2049) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUN 5, 2006
Cask at the Market Porter. Very pale blond. Very little body and lots of hop bitterness but not much hop aroma. Rather dry and an interesting idea of a ’best bitter’.

fiulijn (18577) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 6, 2009
<i>Cask conditioned at The Castle, Furnival St., London</i>
Hazy blond color. Nice fudge/toffee aroma. Some malt flavor, with residual sweetness, low bitterness, less interesting than the aroma.

Nocturne (1731) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - DEC 4, 2015
Cask at JDW. As ’Elland White Hart’. Clear dark golden shade. Rings of white head. Notes of candied fruits and straw. Moderately bitter taste with some dryness. A bit heavy for 4% so not the most drinkable but some nice flavours within.
