Cask handpump at The Maypole, Cambridge. Dark gold in colour with a short head. Nosy of honey and sugar with some citrus in there. Very well balanced with a dry end but consequently not hugely bitter. Honey and citrus in the mouth. Nice but not what I was expecting from a bitter.

Cask at Wellington Arms, Bedford. Mid to dark gold with a small head. Sweet, floral hoppy aroma and a sweet caramel malt taste. A good bitter finish.

ESBman (53) - Andover, Hampshire, ENGLAND - AUG 31, 2006
Tasted at the Black Bull, a freehouse nr. Whitechapel, East London, dedicated to Nethergate’s beers. Presentation: pale amber hue, great clarity; a thin white head settles to a rimmed foam and low in carbonation. Smell: faintly sour-sweet peary fruits, a focused yet understated flowery scent of hops, accompanied by a very softly sweet nougat and caramel note of malts. Simple. Taste: very light grapefruity and slightly peary hops on top of floral flavour and mildly savoury maltiness; a more subtle nutty malt flavour at the back gradually turns dryish, tea-leafy, leaving a bitter-sweet and soothing finish. Palate: great carbonation, soft and light-bodied Best Bitter. Worth a try when one sees it, otherwise not so special to seek out.
