Fairly bitter finish, well balanced but a touch watery. OK, generic bitter.

(Cask at Oxford, London) Quite an ordinary bitter. I wasnít disappointed at all to this beer but it didnít wake any really positive feelings either. Easy to drink and left hardly any memories.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask at the London Brewers Showcase. Pours clear, orange-gold with a soft, white head. Light hop and malt aroma with some honey and grass. Fairly sweet with more honey, plus mild spice, bread, corn flakes and some earthy bitterness. Light to medium in body with fine carbonation. Lightly bitter finish with some lingering bread notes. Decent.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JAN 17, 2012 Sept, 2010 Harp, Covent Garden, on the Welcome Pub Crawl. Dry, watery, fairly austere and dull session bitter. Sounds like they make an effort to get decent quality ingredients - itís a shame the end result was so uninspiring.
Iíve just looked at other comments, and it seems that when this is served in good condition, the beer is quite tasty. [2.8]
Jan, 2012Duke of Wellington, Dalston. North London Crawl. Drinkable bitter though with a stale orange tang. I understand why so many of the others went for the bottled beers. [2.7]

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A macro-light looking ale with nothing too unique about the appearance. the aroma has some minimal hops to it and not a lot going on. The taste, flavor, and palate make up for the bad start (look and smell). It was some hop flavor balanced by a traditional flavor and palate of an English cask ale. A very silky smooth beer as well.

@Harp. Light golden-bronze with some haze. The aroma is a bit appley, maybe even a bit of butter. The palate is appely, but with some nice Maris Otter nuttiness. Decent pint - if a bit thin and underdeveloped.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask @ Harp, London. Dark golden. Frothy cask head. Slight pedio in the aroma but not a huge flaw. Resinous and floral hops make up for it. Has a very earthy, rich boggy aroma. Smooth cask mouthfeel is happy for chug chug. Minerals and resin play on the tongue for lasting flavors. Nice yeast and hot characters blending together.
