2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pint, Duke of Cambridge. A firly standard bitter - a decent balance between hops and malt, delicate flavours and a slightly creamy finish. Nothing remarkable, but a good session beer.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Cask at the Duke of Cambridge with Marc and the French. Fairly bland middle of range copper/amber bitter, more malty than hoppy, short finish. Three average beers in a row...

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Medium offwhite coarse head. Hazy amber body. Light, delicate aroma of peas, tea, and wood. Dry soft taste of peas and wood with earthy caramel notes. Faint residual sweetness with some resin. Aftertaste is the same. Soft and mild mouthfeel, if a bit watery. Not bad, but overall too watery for my tastes. (0.5pt cask at the Duke of Cambridge, Islington, London, badged as Pitfield SB.)

On cask at The Duke of Cambridge, Islington. Hazy, dirty amber with a frothy head. Good fruit and toffee nose. Toffee flavours balanced by grassy hop bitterness, with woody and earthy notes. Medium to light body. Quite enjoyable.

Pint pulled at the Duke of Cambridge in Islington (London), a cloudy copper with a filmy white head. A fruit hop aroma - melon and peach. Subtle citrus flavours in the mouth, smooth with a good bitterness to follow. Solid.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Cask Conditioned at The Shakespeare, Harbury, Warks. Amber coloured with white head. Sharp tinny bitter, the pumpclip has dropped the Singhboulton tag but it is the same. Short muddy finish, not too impressive.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask Conditioned, at The Duke of Cambridge, Islington, London.
Amber with a fluffy white head dissipating quickly. Exceptional clarity and conditioning. Smooth malt flavour, lightly hopped, developing a bitter finish. Flavour overall is fairly represented by the ABV. However I’m not sure you be happy with calling this beer a ‘Best Bitter’ as its barely bitter and only at the finish. Otherwise a well crafter beer. Spicy aromatic notes towards the bottom.
