Cask Conditioned, at the White Horse, Old Street, London.
Thin amber body to look at. Doesnít hold itís head very well. Fails to do anything at all. This is the sort of bitter that would turn people off English beers.

A fairly light bodied and easy drinking beer. Sweet malt flavours, some light hops and some citrus fruits. Strong lacing on the glass. Enjoyable.

0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
A disgusting sulfury tasting bitter. the sulphur isnít really evident in the first sip, with is fruity and malty, but the flavor soon digenerates into sulphar that somehow mixes in with the flavor profile and doesnít seem out of place. pretty nasty stuff though. stuggled to finish it.

Cask, The Highcross, Leicester. I must have rated this before. Still, this is an amber beer with a small, dense, white head. Aromas are sulphur, light malts and some nuttiness. Flavours are sweet malts, soon replaced by sulphur, citrus and light spices. Quite light in flavour but well balance. This really is a beer that is neglected in some pubs, thankfully this was in great condition. A good bitter. Properly Burtonesque.

Full pint on cask. Unclear, dark golden. Low level of white foam. Spicy aroma. Malty foundation in a rather poor taste. Some fruity notes. Lightly crisply bitter ending. Watery (The Golden Lion Wetherspoons, Ipswich 21.09.2006)

Cask at the Porter & Sorter, Croyden. Served too cold, pours copper with a creamy white cap. Weak aroma of leather, grain and citrus hops. Flavour is thin, a little oaky, sweet old malt, and some earthy hops. The finish is a little astringent.

Cask at the Hopwood House Inn, Hopwood, Worcestershire. Good amber colour with a white head. Pleasant malty aroma and sweet malty flavour. But thatís your lot. The finish is watery and lacks the expected bitterness.
