Ungstrup (28448) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 11, 2011
Cask as Boatland Bitter. A dark golden beer with a dense orangey head. The aroma has notes of malt as well as lighter notes of sulphur. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt as well as lighter notes of caramel and straw, leading to a lightly bitter finish. The mouthfeel is smooth.

dnas2 (705) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - OCT 3, 2010
Cask handpump at The Wellington, Birmingham. Golden orange with hardly any head. Not much scent, just a slight hint of flowers. More sweet than I would expect from a bitter, with a dry end. Quite malty, biscuits and cream in there with some straw and pears, I think. Quite a thick mouthfeel. Nice.

Papsoe (25094) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 29, 2010
Cask. I took this down as "Boatland Bitter" but guess its this one. Slightly hazy pale amber with a creamy off-white head. A little fruit and butter in the nose. Thin and watery with lots of caramel and fruit with a subdued bitterness. 190110

chriso (7344) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 20, 2005
Attractive orange/amber colour. Modest aroma with some subtle hop presence coming through. Some lemony citric notes in the flavour. Soft and clean, with a dryish finish. Not the most exciting beer, but a solid pint. Cask (handpump), Riverhead Brewery Tap, Marsden.
