Theydon_Bois (12590) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 4, 2013
Cask at the Windsor Castle, Wesminster, 31/10/13. Clear copper golden with a moderate light beige covering, good lacing ensues. Nose is thin - light fruit notes, hint of toffee, grain. Taste comprises toffee, light malt bill, touch of darker fruit, bread dough. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, light bitter notes in the finish. So so bitter, not unpleasant, just lacks any depth - done on the cheap which is probably why it is relatively speaking!

Mid to dark brown. A bit cloudy. Taste is malty and astringent. Slightly musty. An old-fashioned English bitter. Good, not great.

Beershine (5218) - 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--itís truly an amazing experience sitting out there with the horses and all. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: DEC 29, 2014 #3 - A chest-nutty, and slightly fruity bitter. It is very refreshing, perfect bitter.

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 (6004) - 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 (1114) - 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 didnít 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.

Kavu (2819) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 22, 2013
1/2 pint from cask @ The Falcon. Pours clear amber with a low creamy head. Aroma is malts with some fruits. Flavor is malts and fruits with a hoppy finish. Decent bitter.
