Beautiful, creamy head that lasts the full of the length of the pint. Nice malty aroma but nothing special taste-wise, a standard and well-balanced session ale that goes down easily but is somewhat boring.

This is a mid brown, malty ale with very little hop aroma but a pleasant flavour and full body which is usually very consistent. Add to the fact that it sells for £1.40 a pint in every Sam’s house around York (Jul 09) and it tastes even better. Good beer, exceptional value. However, it is an acquired taste for some. Beware next morning if you overdo it!!

Cask at the princess louise. Alround rating:
Possibly my first ever bitter direct from a wooden cask. Earthy english malts and fleafy bitter hop, a bit unexciting and just like a sessionable chap that i may have had a few thousand of by now.

UPDATED: MAR 22, 2009 Handpulled cask at THe Princess Louise, London. Orange with creamy white head. Good balance of malt and fruit with a very slightly lactic yeastiness. Dry bitter finish. Not a great beer but an excellent session drink which still tastes much as it did 30 years ago, Brilliant value at £1.88 a pint in central London!
