chriso (7347) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 18, 2010
Cask (handpump) at the Great British Beer Festival Day 2, August 2009. Copper colour. Some dry, slightly smoky malt. Contrary to the commercial description, I found more malt than hop. A fairly down-to-earth and not particularly attention-grabbing Best Bitter.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 11, 2009
Cask handpump at GBBF ’09. Amber. Grainy aroma and strawy taste. Mid bitter finish. Simple, agricultural, basic and very lovely.

Cask@GBBF 2009 as "Best Ale". Deep amber color, not much head. Dusty-ashy hop aroma. Vegetables, some malts, ashy hops in the flavor. Weird. Too many off-flavors. ..
