At the Citte of Yorke. Ambiguous, light aroma of malt and fruit? Very light. Dark amber color with a white head. Starts smooth with floral accents over malt - not a dry finish, but there is light bitter at the end. After a few ounces a woody character was noticeable. Very drinkable.

[Cask at The Cock, London] A slightly hazy orange beer served thru a sparkler to give it some off-white head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of caramel. The flavo ris sweet malty with quite a lot of fruit and toffee, leading to a lightly bitter end. The mouthfeel is very smooth. A solid bitter.

Cask, Cittie of York, Holborn, London. Took a while to settle to a chestnut, thin off-white head. Not much aroma, but that’s because it was a bit too cold. Hops and some sour bitterness as it warmed. Flavour was lacking a little too, quite bitter and hoppy, but finishes balanced. Easy to drink, tasted quite frothy!

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask, at The Station, Habrough. Amber gold, moderate lasting white head and pleasant condition. Low fruitiness and trace chalky hop in the nose, quenching malt in the mouth but quite dry and thin, gentle citrusy hop and dry bitterness lingering in the finish. Dirt cheap .

Very dull bitter. Perhaps doesn’t travel well due to traditional methods used, not sure. Has the kind of creamy head they like in the north of england but not much character. There are far better bitters out there. don’t bother.

Half on keg. Amber coloured with a small white head. Light malty aroma. Malt also dominates the taste with some sweetness of vanilla and caramel. Also some fruity notes in a rather anonymous (bitter) ale. (Served a bit too chilled at the great Princess Louise, Holborn 20.09.2006).

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Handpump at the Princess Louise, High Holborn, London. Amber in colour, bit of fruit in the aroma, little bit malty and nutty in the taste but not great, in fact I think that this beer was a bit tired, although in saying that I’ve had this beer frequently before and also in this pub and can’t say I’ve ever been particularly impressed with it.
