imdownthepub (13234) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 26, 2008
Cask conditioned, gravity dispense at The George, Barford St. Michael, Oxon. Yellow gold with very slight head. Light, thin, lagery type beer, quite dry and unfortunately flat. A touch of caramel in the body and just a hint of lemony hop. Drinkable but just a little boring.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - MAY 24, 2007
Cask conditioned - gravity dispense - Cambridge BF. A golden coloured bitter. The aroma is light with a flowery saaz feel to it, and a hint of fart. The taste is light, but reasonably well balanced. Quaffable, but ultimately quite dull.

ManVsBeer (8697) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 2, 2016
Bottle from Sidmouth Wines, Sidmouth. Golden-amber with an extremely thin head. Quite fizzy and active in the palate, it’s a fruity ale in the main, with some toffee also available in its nose. It’s perhaps a little thin in its taste, but crisp, with a light easy-supping nature.v

DruncanVeasey (8012) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JAN 11, 2009
Bottle from Arden Wines. Tight lasting white head on hazy gold. Slick, lacy and full at 3.8. Beautiful fibrous pineapple jelly spinkled with pineneedle US hop aroma. Soapy and slightly astringent with less of the citrus brilliance and pine in the mouth. Hint of ash, almost chocolate despite the paleness. Galena? Bit murky but a lacy, flavoursome GA.

chriso (7513) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 4, 2007
Cask (gravity dispense) at St Albans Beer Festival, September 2006. Not really too much to say about this beer, but, in many ways, it’s a quintessential English ordinary bitter. Amber colour. Touches of dry malt and tangy hop, underpinned by a light, thirst-quenching bitterness. Restrained but well balanced. As one might expect, its quite light bodied. Better suited to a long session in a pub than detailed analysis, and none the worse for that.
