chriso (7347) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 3, 2007
Cask (handpump) , GBBF Day 3, August 2006. Amber colour. Seemed rather short of condition resulting in a slightly dull mouthfeel. Otherwise a pretty standard, slightly earthy British bitter. Not much more to say really. By no means bad but by no means special either.

kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - SEP 6, 2006
Cask (GBBF 2006): Quite nice simple nutty malts with earthy hops. Balanced and Morish. I bet they brewed this specially for Trevor.

harrisoni (13280) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 11, 2006
Cask at GBBF 2006. Copper colour with bubbly beige head. Good floral hop and yeast aroma. OK bitter. Goodish hop on end. Some caramel. In fact I rather like the hop on this and a good start to the Thursday session.

maeib (8611) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - AUG 9, 2006
Cask conditioned – handpump – GBBF. A copper coloured bitter with some citric hop in the aroma, but also a sweetish undertone. The taste is crunchy and malty. Some cracker notes and a touch of late sweetness. Quite nice.

Mungo (2472) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - APR 1, 2006
Bottle (from Bitter Virtue, BBE Oct 06). Fruity hops to the fore with gentle malt sweetness in the mouth. Well balanced but just lacking a little pazaz.

Ungstrup (29168) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 28, 2005
[Cask at Volunteers Arms, GBBF 2004] An amber beer with a small white head. The aroma is sweet with notes of caramel. The flavor is fruity with notes of caramel and a bitter finish, but the body is thin.

johndoughty (3880) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 22, 2004
A robust bitter with plenty of flavour that explodes im your mouth.Very well balanced and in a field full of mundane bitters this one really stands out.

imdownthepub (10019) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 2, 2004
Cask conditioned at The Botanic Gardens, Ventnor, I.o.W. Light amber beer with bubbly head. Well balanced malty bitter with a tangy, lemony hop overlay. Plenty of condition, the beer maintains a refreshing dryness throughout.
