Mr_Pink_152 (711) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - MAY 17, 2014
Pint at The wicked witch Ryhall. The aroma is very weak with hints of malt. The colour is amber with a small dense head. The flavour is sweet malty and nothing special.

Cask at the Land Oak, Kidderminster. Pours dark orange with a small head. Aroma is light orange and lemon hop. A touch of bread. Taste has a little soapy lemon to start. Watery bread and lemon on the finish.

maeib (8726) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JAN 17, 2010
Cask conditioned handpump Navigation Stoke Bruerne (The GBG Survey night). A mid brown/amber coloured beer with a whitish head. An undistinguished bitter with tea and earthy notes throughout. There amy be a touch of flowery hop in the aroma but it’s faint. It’s the sort of beer which gets tiresome even half way through a half pint and it gets dishwatery.

DruncanVeasey (7191) - NUNEATON, Top 18, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - AUG 24, 2007
Can’t believe this one’s slipped through the net. Clear bronze pint sniffing faintly of egg. Doughy malt, gentle hops and delicate fruit, hinting at apple. Better-than-acceptable sessions.

Mungo (2472) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - JUL 31, 2007
Cask conditioned @ Humble Plumb, Soton. Boring traditional bitter. Crystal malt and earthy floral hops. Drinkable.

Gethinbeer (2158) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - MAY 9, 2006
Pint on tap. The pub had looked after the beer well here. Deep amber colour and a great looking head. The beer is slightly boring, no suprises but is a good standard pub bitter. I could happily sit here drinking this.
