Cask; Regular. Aka Jeffrey Hudson Bitter. Also available bottled @ 4.2% abv.
A golden beer whose aroma is dominated by hops that give characteristic citrus notes. Hops and fruit on the palate are balanced by malt and a bitter base. Dry hoppy finish with soft fruit flavors. A nationally respected ale, winner of numerous awards, JHB is a blond baby packed with flavour & perfect for those long sessions as well as a quick pint at lunchtime. This popular beer was crowned Champion beer of britain in the bitter category in 2001 and 1999.
Challenger and American Mount Hood hops.

UPDATED: JAN 29, 2004 Cask Conditioned, at the Wenlock Arms, London.
Blonde, slightly hazy, this particular ale had been on the stillage for 9 days and still hadn’t cleared? Wonderful fruity flavour, pineapples and peaches. Tastes far larger and fuller than 3.8% ABV.

bierkoning (10401) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - AUG 11, 2003
UPDATED: NOV 17, 2006 Cask, GBBF. Very light color, like a pilsener. Big head. Aroma has hops and grapefruit. Hoppy citric flavor with vanilla. Medium bodied. Fairly long hopbitter finish. Fine and well balanced ale. Bottle. Sweet apples and a hint of toffee in the aroma. Cidery yeat hopbitter, somewhat dusty and earthy flavor. Earthy bitter aftertaste with some apple. (6 3 6 3 13) From cask this beer is much better as bottle-conditioned.

JorisPPattyn (7983) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - AUG 11, 2003
(Cask) Pale gold beer, slight white head. Nose with remarkably flowery bitterness. Taste is like some lemon-scented tea, enriched by hops. Light bodied. Long hops aftertaste. Very nice light bitter.

Ungstrup (29528) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 8, 2003
[Cask at GBBF 2003] A light yellow beer with a creamy but disappearing head. The aroma is sweet and simple. The flavor is sweet and simple too but it ends on a fine bitterness, that turns dry and lingers. A simple but good bitter.

Nuffield (3701) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JUL 11, 2003
I was told this cask was dry hopped by the pub, but if so the biggest contribution is the aroma, which was lovely--so floral, so vibrant. Light yellow color, clinging head around the rim of the glass. The flavor, however, has an address of 1 Dull Court, Sodding Boring, Blandshire, UK. A bitter note or two, and a wee bit of tang, but not especially engaging. (on tap, White Horse on Parsons Green, London)

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 10, 2003
Fresh floral aroma. Light bodied, fruity (tropical, pinapple), with a nice solid citrussy hops character, light to medium bitterness, refreshing.

RichardWilding (201) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 19, 2003
UPDATED: JUL 31, 2004 A huge head when being pumped, quickly subsided, minor lacing. This was a nice beer with hints of fruit (grapefruit, lemon). Very smooth, and drinkable.
