Cask (Market Porter, Southwark)
6 Sweet malty aroma.
3 Rich orange, small head
7 Good full malty taste, nice UK bitter hops.
4 Nutty finish, some milkiness too. In fact it’s a very bitter nutty finish. That late finish is full of hops.
14 This is a lovely example of a gimick-free bitter. Less sweet mash in the aroma, and it would be fantastic.

imdownthepub (9991) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 26, 2008
Cask conditioned, gravity dispensed, at The George, Barford St. Michael, Oxon. Straw colour with white head. Squeezed the last one out of the firkin, so I’ll be gentle on this one. Lemony but thin beer, seemingly another lager cross over. Some apple, cidery notes with a light biscuity malt.

DonMagi (5596) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 23, 2007
Cask 3 judges, old rating. Aroma is grassy and floural with hints of biscuity malts. Taste has far more caramel notes than biscuit, bitter finish.

downender (6151) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 9, 2007
UPDATED: AUG 10, 2007 Cask-conditioned at the Bag O’Nails, Bristol 9/8/07. Chris O’s comments are spot on. A reasonable if undistinguished bitter with a decent balance of hops and malt but nothing to stand out. Ok.
