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

Cask at Prince of Wales, Farnborough. 25/08/16. Torn over this beer. Pretty much zero aroma. In terms of taste/palate it’s extremely soft and sweet, but picking up very little. It is copper and has a healthy off-white head. I suppose it’s harmless - could knock back a few but not really notice.

The Royal Standard, Lyme Regis. Cask. Clear dark amber beer, small bubbly pale cream colour head. Palate is light and semi dry and has mild fine carbonation. Taste is most reminiscent of their best bitter but somewhat watered down. Tangy caramel malts. Tangy dried fruits. Trace of ripe orange. Quaffable. Fine!

The_Osprey (6600) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 3, 2015
Cask at the Harp, Covent Garden. Pale orange, small foamy white head. Aroma is caramelly but there’s also plenty of sulphur unfortunately. Body is light, smooth, low carbonation. Taste is citrussy, soft bready malt, light bitterness. Flavour is nice enough, shame about eggy smell.

Scopey (12711) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 12, 2014
Cask at random pub in Dorset. It pours deep copper with a small white head. The nose is earthy, nutty, light caramel and wood. The taste is bitter, earthy, wood, tame bitterness, chewy malt and astringent bite with a dry finish. Light-medium body, soft carbonation and chewy mouth-feel. A bit chewy, but not too bad.

a_cross (639) - 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 (7932) - 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.

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.
