edsspoon (858) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - AUG 5, 2015
Cask - had this before with some awful vegetal off flavours, but seems to be better now. Pours amber with a creamy beige head. Aroma of caramel, spinach and a little mint. Taste of malts, caramel, grass and mint with a light bitterness to finish. Medium body, soft carbonation.

chriso (7513) - 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.
