reidyboy (11) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - NOV 18, 2009
Cask at The Buck’s Head in Church Stretton. Very nice looking russet beer with a thick white head. Hint of malt on the nose, richer mouthfeel than expected and the opposite of thin (not thick, surely?). All in all a pleasant lunch-time pint, approaching a winter warmer.

BlackHaddock (3480) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 9, 2012
Taken at a local pub on 29th Nov 2011, hand pulled into a UK pint sleeve. Amber/golden hue to the body with a cream coloured frothy head sat on top, the sparkler at the end of the swan’s neck ensuring the beer took a while to settle in the glass (and give that frothy crown). The aroma was more malt than hop, roasted/toasted malts to be precise, nuts too. Semi-sweet malty flavour, biscuity/bready feel to the taste; smooth and easy to drink. A dry bitterness arrives towards the end of each sip, just to remind you this is a UK Bitter not a creamy, sweet brew.

Cask at The Anchor, Southwark, London.
Pours a clear amber colour with nice creamy head and malty nose. The taste is mild roasted malt, coffee and milk chocolate with some hoppy notes in the finish. Very nice brew.

harrisoni (13198) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 5, 2010
Cask handpull at The Pheasant Ashford. Clear pale chestnut colour. Lasting creamy head from sparkler. Malty aroma. Lovely rich mid brown malts. I mean its a tasty malty best bitter. Ticks all the boxes with an extra one for being just damn good. The reason I like drinking bitter.

[Cask at the Hobgoblin, High Wycombe] Amber with a moderate white head. Caramel at first, with roasted hints. Odd but enjoyable savoury biscuit flavour develops before a smooth finish. Nice. c6
