kaziopiwosz (356) - Warszawa / Wałbrzych, - OCT 1, 2012
Strong bitter taste, hops and yeast palate. Snow-white foam, stays very long. Golden/caramel colour. Leeds best? It’s possible.

wimpyjoe (3483) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 3, 2014
Bottle. Golden, clear and not much of a head. There’s some malt but it’s has more grain in both its aroma and taste with a medium bitterness and a small sweetness.

Floral aroma, earthy hops with a slightly watery palate. Acceptable session beer but rather boring.

jjsint (627) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 8, 2014
Cask @ Champion of the Thames, Cambridge. Dark gold/amber, tries to muster up a little bit of head. Aroma is grassy and vinous. The taste is bready and malty: sweet at first with a dry finish. Bitterness in the back of the throat jars against the otherwise lovely end to the sip. It’s ok but not all that memorable.

dogbomb (917) - ENGLAND - FEB 4, 2014
Bottle. Golden amber with a decent white head which lasts. Little bit of honey on a mostly malty nose - touch of lemon/grapefruit too. Full, malt-laden bitter mouthful. It’s a "proper" bitter, with a lot of bite. Some cereal and honey and lots of malt, but I’m mostly getting a metallic zesty bitter. Makes me pull funny faces, but a decent drop.
