BlackHaddock (3635) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 12, 2014
Did not realise this had a cask and bottle listing until I came across it yesterday (11th Aug 2014) after having a bottle at my brother-in-laws house: something I have done many, many times. This is his prefered UK bottled beer and he always has a few in. Anyway let us get onto the beer: it’s OK but nowhere near as good as a well kept cask Pedigree in a cosy pub. Slightly red hue to the pale brown body, the white head, always leaving some lacing. Mildly sweet malts in the nose and taste with toffee flavours clearly coming through. The finish is a little bitter and hoppy, this helps to balance the beer nicely. I am sure this used to be creamier in the body years ago: sadly things change.

rangerred (916) - Johnson City, Tennessee, USA - AUG 1, 2014
500ml bottle into a nonic. Pours a hazy dark copperish-brown with a thick half finger white head. Very good head retention that stays in place for a long time after the pour. Aroma is loaded with toffee and caramel with a heavy dose of grassy hops. While nothing spectacular it is exactly on par with what the style should be. The flavor adheres to the style just as well as the aroma. Loads of toffee and caramel but it is not too sweet. I feel the hops stand out a bit more here lending a mild, light bitterness to balance out the maltiness. The toffee turns into a bit of dark rye bread towards the finish with a touch of roast. Slightly sticky mouthfeeel with bitterness lingering through the finish. Overall, this is a very well done English Bitter. Better than many bitters that come to the USA and I would absolutely love to have this out of a cask one day.

Niall73 (1682) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 20, 2014
Bottle. Pours amber with a white head. Aroma is light caramel and brown toast. Light to medium body, medium carbonation. Light skunkiness to it - and light caramel, lemon, hazelnut, grass... Pretty dull but OK.

Sjohnh (147) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 5, 2014
Clear dark amber with white head. Thin body, low carbonation. Malts dominate the nose - the draught version I used to drink in Manchester had a very distinctive aroma, somewhat sewer related - but none of that here. Slightly soapy, with a lasting bitter finish. Not my favourite English bitter.

330 ml can. Clear dark golden with white head. Smell is sweet malty and cookies. Taste is sweet malt with fruits and bread. Low bitterness and low carbonation.

Bottle. Pours a clear golden, filtered. Nice head but didn’t last long. Med - high carbonation. Malty sweetness, bread, herbal notes. Quite liked this

Well, it’s very hot out. I’m hot and sweaty and this beer tasted a bit like cream soda and reminded me of my trip to England.

northropfrye (2198) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JUN 21, 2014
Listed on the bottle as "Martsons Pedigree Exceptional Premium Pale Ale" by an abv of 4.5%. I hope I’ve got the right one. Anyway...Slightly reddish pale body, with whit head, some lacing. Slight sweet malts in the aroma. Taste is sweet malts with a very faint touch of bitterness. A quaffable beer. Pretty typical English ale, nothing too special, but not bad.

RichardW (1502) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - JUN 19, 2014
Bottled. My first ever ’regular’ cask beer two & a half decades ago. There’s a hint of the sulphury’ Burton snatch’ but its overwhelmed by dry, grassy malt. There’s some cherry on the tongue, sherbert in the finish and dry woody notes in between. Acceptable and middling.

Lowenbrau (1908) - Asturias, Oviedo, SPAIN - JUN 9, 2014
500ml bottle, somewhere in time.
In short: a pretty decent bitter.
Pours some hazy golden with frothy white head. Moderate head retention, some lacing. Malty, some roasty, cereal and honey aromas. Medium body, average carbonation,some crispy texture. Taste follows the nose, some hay hints, flowers, subtle roasty. Enjoyable.
