prawlie (1082) - Berkshire, - JUL 21, 2011
Half pint at the 3 Guineas in Reading. Amber brown with short lived head. Very mild tasting, a bit light and oatey, a touch bitter. Remarkably mild but ultimately a bit boring. Fruity aroma, but also a bit acidic. Tastes alright apart from being watery.

chriso (7347) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 9, 2012
Cask (handpump) at Great British Beer Festival, day 4 on 5 August 2011. Dark gold / amber colour. Fairly traditional style session bitter with more malt than hop. Quite earthy. Nothing too much to complain about here but there were a large number of similar beers at the festival and there was nothing about this one that stood out from the crowd. Solid if unspectacular.

UPDATED: AUG 29, 2011 Cask (GBBF2011, Wednesday) (6:3:6:3:11=2.9)
Dull, but sharp bitter. I seemed to hit the motherlode of dull bitters at this point in the day, and it was starting to annoy me.
Rerate: Cask (GBBF2011, Friday) (6:6:6:3:12=3.0)
Dull, sweet malty bitter. A touch of minerals. Finish sweet barley malts. Not much of an improvement on the earlier one.
