Only casked ale they do, and it ainít great, but it ainít as bad as some say here. Good drinkable bitter with a nice bitter-tasting profile. This is easily drank, but did have me looking towards the bottled offerings at Ye Old Cheshire Cheese.

This was one of the better bitters that I had on my trip to london. A little bit more depth.

Amber with a beige nitro head. Nothing in aroma. Sweet old woody hops. Slightly metallic bitterness. Shit.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask at Ye Olde Chesire Cheese in London. Clouded brown body with a small cream colored head. Nose is some fruit, wood and hops. Taste is light wood, spiced hops, cocoa, and muddied malt. Mouthfeel is moderate with mild bitterness. Finish is a fruit flavor (for some reason I picked up banana) with a hoppy note or two.

Draught in Cittie Of Yorke, London. March 2004. After long trip to London this pub really was my Holy Grail and this bitter - first beer on the table. It wasnít quite complex, but I liked it for its refreshing sourness and creaminess.

cask conditioned at tadcaster pub next to the brewery: pulled this rate out of my journal of my travels to england. im definately going to have to try this again because i wasnt as down on the stuff as all the other rates. however, i am a yank and dont taste cask beers that often so , maybe a little more interesting and exciting to me then to someone in their home town. golden brown poor with a white thick head. slight hop fruit aroma. easy easy drinking. good session...

Very flat and uninspiring, BLAH! I was suprised the head lasted 5 minutes. Had a very strange color to it also

Yep, I've done this in a couple of pubs. But it aint much. A bit flabby, though there's a wood smack that bodes well. Just doesn't quite do the job.
