Beershine (5195) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - JUL 30, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 31, 2013 Had at the brewery tap Angel and White Horse (brewery tap in Tadcaster). From their own-made wooden barrel. The aroma and flavors are essential beer, beer in its prototype, worty and luscious, clean, woody, and sexy. Why and how its ratings so low I do not understand! Update: had it in Durham. The beer is just as fab but not as fresh as the brewery. So do yourself a favor and drink this from the font--its truly an amazing experience sitting out there with the horses and all. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

#3 - A chest-nutty, and slightly fruity bitter. It is very refreshing, but lacks any distinctions to set it apart from other bitters.

Nothing special. Dark but little bitterness and no aroma. Nice and mild at least. Went for a jog after this one ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

larsniclas (5351) - Billdal, SWEDEN - MAY 24, 2013
Draught at Princess Louise Deep golden with a creamy, white head. Very light, slightly sourish aroma from oak and toffee. A bit acidic n the flavour. Grassy hops, but overall disappointingly bland. Light bitterness.

KeefOz (763) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - MAY 3, 2013
Tasted 23/4/2013 draught "Princess Louise", High Holburn, London. Poured as a glass full of bubbles that took some time to settle to a medium gold amber colour with a thin white bubble head that didnt lace. Aroma faintly of sweet malt. Taste of sweet malt but no real bitterness. Light to medium body. Smooth and soft with not much flavour. Easy drinking.

danlo (897) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - FEB 6, 2013
Cask at the Glittering Star, Darlington. Clear golden brown amber colour, creamy white head and aroma of malt & toffee. Taste is sweetish malty caramel, with a light dry bitterness and slight fruity & toffee notes. Creamy smooth mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Overall a quite drinkable bitter.
