stesso discorso che vale anche per la "palmers bitter"..in questo caso colore più scuro e sentori legnosi nell’aroma e nel gusto..piacevole senz’altro ma nulla di speciale

a_cross (525) - Poole, Dorset, ENGLAND - FEB 17, 2014
Cask at The Ropemakers, Bridport; copper coloured with a head of loose white bubbles; light fruity aroma; taste is dry citrus fruit and malt; some dusty, flowery hops lurk in the background; simple, light, unexciting but perfectly ok for what it is.

Svesse (5862) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - DEC 2, 2013
(Cask at Harp, Charring Cross, London, 20 Nov 2013) Copper colour with frothy, off-white head. Malty, nutty nose with dried fruit, apricots and earthy hops. Malty, fruity nose with notes of nuts, caramel, dried fruit and a moderate, dusty bitterness in the finish. Light body, with a touch of sweetness. Tasty but a bit thin. Quite nice.

Gary (1294) - (originally London),, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 9, 2013
UPDATED: OCT 10, 2013 (caSK IN Bridport. Dorset) Lots of malt flavour depth - a tad hoppy in this profile. but really like drinking liquid brown bread -that’s what I visualized . easy to sink and subtle relaxed flavour -what a Bitter should have going for it .

Cask conditioned handpump George Bridport 14/08/13. A mid brown coloured beer with a white bubbly head. a sweetish fruity beer with a bit of toffee and good brown fruitiness. An enjoyable tasty malt loaded beer with a good body for its strength.

Theydon_Bois (6994) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - SEP 16, 2012
Cask at the Half Moon, Windlesham - 12/09/12. Dark golden copper with a thin off-white head that soon thins to the edge. Aroma of grain, malt, a little fruit, a fairly muted nose. Tastes of caramel, malt with background fruit. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation. Standard bitter - drinkable, nothing to shout home about!

Cask at the Harp, London on 13th July 2012. Copper with thin off-white head and initial lacing. Sweetish fruity and malty aroma. Very malty in mouth with discreet grassiness and citric notes. Tangy citric finish. Light body and a smooth to light mouthfeel.

MattLevy (2) - SCOTLAND - JUN 3, 2012 does not count
@Weavers, Strathaven. beautiful looking beer, a deep dark red with a slightly off-white head. Taste, however, isn’t as impressive. Nothing wrong with it, there’s just no real impact. Suitable as a session beer, without destroying your palate if something else on tap takes your fancy.

Vladivostok (215) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUL 6, 2011
Lighter and drier than Best Bitter, this is a nice session beer in the old style. Usually seems to have good head retention for a deep-south beer and the name describes the appearance to a tee. Very pleasant.

Cask (Wellington Arms, Southampton) - Copper coloured. Fruity aroma with dried fruit and caramel. Malty, fruity and slightly hoppy taste with dried fruit and caramel.
