Cask at the Argyll Arms. Clear amber-honey pour with basically no head. Bready malt aroma with some caramel and toffee. Lightly sweet, malty and bready with dry, grassy bitterness. Light bodied with light carbonatio. Bitter, dry finish with plenty of bread. So so.

BreWedge (258) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 21, 2014
On tap @ Beer Bistro Toronto. Pours a clear light brown with a small off-white head and little to no carbonation. Aromas are black licorice and a little plastic funk. Tastes are toffee/caramel, roastiness, mild hops and somewhat metallic on the Black end. Very light bodied, light carbonation, and a short finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Osprey87 (1180) - London via, WALES - MAR 4, 2014
Cask at Artillery Arms Moorgate. Post-exam commiseration/celebration with classmates, so short review. Amber gold, still, clear. Aroma - toned down malts. Body is medium, smooth, carbonation low. Taste is almost entirely orange squash and apple. If I were blindfolded Iíd say that it is some sort of fruit cordial. Bitterness is mild. Thereís something a bit sickly about it but itís OK.

AdiBeer (614) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 22, 2014
Aroma: light malts. Appearance: light dark brown, no head. Taste: light bitter. Palate: mild, flat carbonation, light bitterness continues. Overall: nothing special, slightly above average bitter. Pint at Cat and Canary, Canary Wharf.

Vladivostok (215) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - NOV 24, 2013
Pale amber with a slight malty aroma. Thin mouth feel and very gently hopped, so little in the way of lingering flavours. As ordinary bitters go, not a patch on Fullerís own Chiswick Bitter.

Theydon_Bois (7004) - The íSham, Surrey, ENGLAND - NOV 8, 2013

Taste comprises toasted malts, hint of tropical fructis, orange, grass. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, light hoppy tingle in a subtle bitter blow out. Iíd call this lady a golden blondem !
