Tap at The Cock Tavern. Pours clear amber with a nice white head leaving some lacing. Aroma is malty fruity grassy hoppy and a bit sweet. Flavor is nicely malty bitter fruity with a touch of citrus and caramel. Finishes bitter malty.

sic1314 (3217) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - SEP 1, 2012
Completely traditional bitter, easily one of my favourite beers. Classic of the style, but very old fashioned and understandable why some people might not like it. Incredible value for it’s cheap price.

When cost is taken into consideration, this is my choice bitter. Clean, complex for a bitter, and yet everything a bitter should be.

TheCametron (1780) - CZECH REPUBLIC - AUG 15, 2012
Cask at The Cramond Inn. Brown Amber with a White head. Sweet malty flavour. Fruity leading to a bitter finish. Well balanced, simple and effective.

Amber. Thin white head. Light fruits, caramel, earth, wet wood. Really smooth drinking. Much better than its rating.

theatmosphere (50) - York, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 20, 2012
Good session beer. Pours a lovely amber colour with a nice, but subtle, aroma. I suspect rather too thin to be approaching a great bitter.

john1704 (26) - SCOTLAND - JUN 26, 2012
Cask Blue Bell Preston. Pours chestnut brown with thick Gillette head. Really takes me back to my first real pint in late 70s. Lovely beer and bargain at £2.20 a pint. Glasgow Real Ale pubs take note.

Cask tasted at Chandos, near Trafalgar sq, Londoon on 19 May 2012. Amber clear appearance, creamy medium head, hoppy tangy taste, slight flavor of coffee beans, low carbonation, long finish. Very nice bitter.

Eructoblaster (2994) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 26, 2012
On tap at Duke of Argyll (London, UK). Pours a nice amber body with a generous off-white creamy head. Decent malty/hoppy aroma with grainy and herbal hints. Hoppy taste carries oaky notes and ends with a good bitter/grainy finish. Enjoyable.
