Clear amber beer, creamy white head. Light sour fruit aroma. Fruity taste and a touch sour again. Malt and some light bitter hop. A very traditional bitter but perfectly serviceable.

On cask @Thomas Rigby’s Liverpool Hazy irange amber pour. almost no head. nose of bred and citrus. full bodied with a lot of malt and a nice hope bite in the finish. At under 4% alcohol this is a great session ale

Travlr (21634) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - OCT 4, 2015
Cask at The Bridge. Clear deep golden color, thick cream colored head with good retention. Aroma of light black pepper, but the young lady sitting next to me was wearing a lot of perfume, so who knows? Taste is light straw and white pepper. Watery body.

gunnar (7966) - Sandnes, NORWAY - AUG 25, 2015
Cask at The Albert, Douglas. Pours clear dark golden with a small white head. Aroma of weak grassy hops and caramel. Taste is moderate sweet caramel, weak bitter finish, short lived as well.

ManVsBeer (8765) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 18, 2015
Cask @ Thomas Rigby’s, Liverpool. Golden-orange with a small head. Has a malty nose with light malts in its taste and a medium bitterness. Gentle enough in its texture.

BlackHaddock (6375) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 13, 2015
8th April 2015: my first beer on the Isle of Man. Hand-pulled pint through a huge swan neck in the excellent Trafalgar in Ramsey. Amber and clear with a good, lasting white crown: it looked good on this and subsequent occasions I drank it around the island. The nose is a pleasant blend of hops and light caramel notes, as is the taste. This is a true session ale and flavoursome for such a brew, coming in at only 3.7% ABV: very drinkable and one of the best in it’s class/style.

Brązowe piwo o puszystej pianie. W smaku typowy, klasyczny, dobry bitter o fajnej goryczce.

Erzengel (7889) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - AUG 4, 2014
Cask. Smooth beginning, fresh, hints of roasted nuts, roasted malt, hazelnuts. Easy to drink, fresh, smooth. Slightly dryer and more bitter till the end. Nice and smooth, dry-malty with a nice bitterness remains on the tongue!

stravale (2834) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - MAR 24, 2014
Cask @ Bear and Billet, Chester [220314] [From memory as notes lost]
Amber colour, clear, white head. Remember this as a fairly standard session bitter but better than usual. Light caramel malt, soft bitter hops. Finish did have some more hop in it....recall this as a 3.1
