Theydon_Bois (7935) - The íSham, Surrey, ENGLAND - OCT 5, 2012
Cask at the Prince Of Wales, Twickenham - 30/09/12. Clear copper with a thin white head which soon clears. A nose with little promise comprising some caramel malt tones and muted hops. Taste follows, bland, a little toffee and fruit. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation - dull !

kwik-lime (1241) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 12, 2012
Boring watery bitter with a weak palate. Some hop in the finish and a hint of earthiness and wood but this is really devoid of character.

Leighton (10483) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 16, 2012
Cask at The Cleveland Arms, London. Pours clear, rich gold with a fine, frothy head. A bit of lightly tangy citrus fruit on the nose with hints of straw. Light to medium sweet flavor with some tangerine, lemon, pale malts, mild white sugar, hay. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Fairly sweet to finish with faintly toasted hay and pale malts, some tangy citrus, subtle doughy bread, faint spicy grass impressions. Basic but enjoyable stuff.

tombyars (1332) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - FEB 17, 2012
First tasted this at the Three Judges, Glasgow in April 2004. Cask, handpump dispense. Opaque red amber in colour with a thin white head. Sweet citrusy aroma of tangerines, short in intensity. Thin resiny mouthfeel and poor lacing. Pale malt gives a digestive biscuit base laden with juicy orange peel flavours. Dusty bitter hop resins present in the not too dry aftertaste. Finish is slightly malty with tangy marmalade notes. A decent session bitter.

Cask at double lock exeter. Mellow malt aromas slightly leathery and woody. Bitterness in taste tempered by a slight sweetness.

BeerCast_Rich (1847) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 14, 2011
[cask at Princess of Shoreditch, London] Brown pour with a thin white head. Malty toffee aromas come from the glass; flavours are more malt with a touch of biscuit. Quite a dry finish with some bitterness. Decent stuff [10042011]

On tap somewhere - maybe Market Porter. Pretty standard bitter that is notable only for being not that bitter! Bland.
