on tap oured a slightly cloudy rich amber with a nice off-white head that would leave a fair amount of lacing. The aroma was a nicely balanced malt and hops sensation, if a bit underpowered. A good easy flavor just barely sweet upfront with a light bitter finish that lingers gently. It is smooth with a barely perceptible tingle in the mouth.

Pint at the Tilley Stone Gateshead. Ripe red fruit aroma, bags of fruit and nut toffee flavour balanced by a bitter finish. Dry , biscuity palate. One of the better bitters.

AshtonMcCobb (2779) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 2, 2013
On tap @ the Haymarket Bar. Pours amber with a decent head. The nose has a nice combination of dark malts and fresh hoppiness. The taste confirms this to be raisins with just a hint of chocolate then a nice floral finish. The palate is well balanced - medium bodied and textured with a nice clean finish. Overall, a good example of an English Best Bitter.

Pours a murky amber with a lacy dense white head, not much on aroma small amounts of dark malt, Taste is light roasted malt, with a bitter coffee edge (been pushed out to soon) it's young. Growing on me

tombyars (1396) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - FEB 24, 2013
Tasted this in the Salt Cot, Saltcoats (JDW) in February 2013. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear pale copper in colour with a thin pale buff head. The aroma has a sulphurous earthy pungency about it which reminds me of Belhaven 80/ a bit! Excellent lacing throughout. Thin but creamy mouthfeel. Pale malt base gives a roasted rye bread base with a distinctive Rivetta crispbread note. Slight hint of burnt toffee in there but fleeting. Short note of earthy hop resins detected in the brief aftertaste. Finish is malty and slightly dry with a wood smoke flavour coming through. An ok session bitter.

fairwater (135) - Reading, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 24, 2013
Cask @ Monks Retreat. A good, solid, traditional, bitter. Crystal malts, lightly hopped with very English tasting hops. Reminded me how good "boring brown bitter" can be when it’s done well, and this one definitely is.
