Cask; Regular. Also available bottle conditioned.
An elegant, straw coloured bitter. The hint of sweetness is complemented by subtle hop flavours, leading to a dry finish. Brewed using Maris Otter pale Ale malt, Hobson's yeast and finished with Worcestershire Goldings and Herefordshire Progress hops.

dnas2 (705) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - OCT 23, 2006
Golden, medium size foamy white head. Malty and possibly some vinegar in the scent. Thick with a slightly oily finish. Hint of fizz on the tongue but not strongly carbonated. Very bitter. Complex aroma with some hop and lime. Slightly acidic.

harrisoni (14353) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 22, 2006
Cask at GBBF 2006. The 2nd beer of Saturday (I had a pint of Cains Bitter whilst everyone else settled in and started arriving). Golden, thin off white head. Good carbonation. Nice hop aroma. Bit of sickly malt. Finish is a bit disappointing. Odd bitter. Bit earthy I guess from the Goldings hops. Some juicy fruit.

madsberg (10592) - Søborg, DENMARK - AUG 11, 2006
Bottled. Golden coloured. Dusty. Fluffy off white head. Sweetness, light caramel and light spice in the aroma. Flaovur is herbal and sweet. Some fruity notes. Medium bodied. Light smooth bittterness in the end. Quite refreshing and easy to drink beer.

Papsoe (25076) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 5, 2006
(Bottle 50 cl) Pours a slightly hazy amber, no head and basically no carbonation either. Malty, slightly sour aroma. Light body with vague notes of nuts, but otherwise just sour, vinegary and plain nasty. Yet another bottle conditioned English beer gone terribly bad. Needs a rerate. 040706

RichardGretton (4345) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 30, 2006
Cask@The Criterion, Leicester. Golden beer with a light and fruity aroma and a light, fruity and malty flavour. Overall a plain light beer.

Bottle cortesy of sk8viking
Hazy orange amber, off-white fluffy head. Fruity and flowery aroma, english hops, quite pleasant. The flavor is a bit of a letdown - Light fruity and metallic yeasty notes on top of a very light strawmalt body. The dead yeast is grating the senses - and the bottle has bbeen standing upright for several days so I dont think it would settle down more than it has.
