Theydon_Bois (12869) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 5, 2012
Cask at Craft Brixton - 28/09/12. Clear golden with a thin white head that soon clears. Nose of toffee, orchard fruits, caramel malt. Taste largely follows nose, couldn’t elaborate any further! Medium bodied with low carbonation. The ubiquitous 3 out of 5. Drinkable but Whelming!

kaziopiwosz (362) - Warszawa / Wałbrzych, POLAND - OCT 1, 2012
Strong bitter taste, hops and yeast palate. Snow-white foam, stays very long. Golden/caramel colour. Leeds best? It’s possible.

Cask by handpump at State Bar, Glasgow - golden amber, thin bubbly off-white head, no identifiable aroma, vegetable, hint of resin, fruity, sweetish, easy to drink

dynamiteninja (1680) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - SEP 7, 2012
UPDATED: SEP 18, 2013 Bottle. (September 2012). Amber body. Thin white head. Fruity, biscuity, hoppy. Marris Otter? Bitter. Dry finish. Standard bitter. If someone said, "give me a standard, quality Yorkshire session bitter", I’d probably suggest this 636312 ##### Bottle. (September 2013). Thin white head, with excellent retention. Gold to amber body. Nose is hops and malt, grass, spice, fruit. Boiled sweets (seems a bit overly pasteurised). Reminds me of a Badger ale. Tiny whiff of sulphur in the background. Bitter. Dry finish. Watery palate. 636212

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 8, 2012
On cask at Cloisters. Pours a dark golden colour with a thick white head. Aroma of toffee and caramel with similar flavours. Moderate carbonation and a foamy mouth-feel.

blankboy (6633) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 13, 2011
Cask at The Old Bell, Harrogate. Pours a clear deep orange with a small lasting creamy off-white head. Aroma’s quite buttery (diacetyl) along with light hops. Flavour’s malty along with a decent amount of hops, only slightly buttery, and with a mild, short bitter finish. Medium bodied. It’s alright, an O.K. Bitter.

chriso (7513) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 14, 2011
Cask (gravity dispense) at Battersea Beer Festival on 10 February 2011. Amber colour. Soft and rather sweet. Distinctly mellow and easy-drinking. Some late bitterness but I still found it a low on bite for my taste - I’d have preferred a more assertive hop presence. Perfectly competent though, just not really my favoured style of bitter.
