Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - MAR 4, 2007
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.

detroitsteel (235) - Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 4, 2007
A fairly light bodied and easy drinking beer. Sweet malt flavours, some light hops and some citrus fruits. Strong lacing on the glass. Enjoyable.

jehoey (765) - Shippensburg, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 17, 2006
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.

leaparsons (9677) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 10, 2006
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.

Rune (10928) - TromsÝ, NORWAY - OCT 13, 2006
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)

voota (765) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - OCT 10, 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.

fonefan (43245) - VestJylland, DENMARK - SEP 15, 2006
Cask, handpumpe @ ... . Pale amber color with a very small head. Very smooth fruity aroma. Flavour of caramel, sweet maltness and with a nice hoppy and bitter finish.

A fruitinees and citrus are mostly present, a decent beer I guess, but nothing to write home about.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 21, 2006
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.
