Cask @ Bankers Draft, Bedford. Thin golden brown with white foamy head. Smells sulphurous and not particularly enticing. Slightly soapy astringent bitter taste. Reasonable bitter aftertaste. It came free with my curry, what can I say. I left most of it.

Amber with a small white head. Aroma of hops and citrus, with a bit of banana. Bready maltiness and hoppiness, followed by bitterness and banana. All round nice beer.

kerenmk (2001) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - DEC 6, 2013
Cask at the Unicorn Hotel, Ripon, September 2013. Clear dark gold with white head. A little hoppy, pine and apple aroma, bitter and a tad bit dry taste. Medium body, malty finish and dry.

DandyLion (474) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 6, 2013
Cask @ the White House Leicester. Rather average bitter. It's cheap and it's not horrible. Easy drinking with an ever so slight bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

OwainTurner (286) - Leicester, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 5, 2013
At around £2 a pint (in London) I don’t expect much. Looks the part, amber colour, thick dense head. aroma is lacking. Tastes smooth, very easy drinking. Ididn’t expect a lot, but it is target nice. better than average bitter.

DanielFullard (24) - Sunderland, Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - AUG 18, 2013
Rather bland taste, nothing nasty just a "nothingness to it". 1.90 a pint in JDW so you get what you pay for. An average beer if ever there was one.

BOSSbrewer (1314) - Arkansas, USA - AUG 1, 2013
Not much to it. No aroma. Barely any flavor. Pale yellow straw color. Had at the king of Wessex in Bath.

Draught. This is another classic that just did not live up to the hype for me.
