Muggus69 (1533) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - MAR 10, 2010
Cask Amber body, white cream atop. Floral hops on the nose, with a good amount of sweet toffee malt. Smooth texture, low carbonation, medium body. Nice hop flavour; decidedly fruity, citrus mostly, bit of grass with a biscuit and toffee malt backbone, balancing a moderate bitter finish. Quite good, especially for the price!

Gary (1662) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 16, 2010
(cask @ The Town Warf, Isleworth). Severed with a sparkler , it looked half generic and half legit and not contrived. Customary butterscotch’y -carmely’ malt flavas, with a little dry citrusy hops in there . Pretty plesant offering from Smith’ys.

Draught at Robert Raike’s House, Gloucester - 25/9/10. Nicely coloured with a thick white head. Sweet taste and then some sugar in the palate. A smooth beer.

Cask @ Swan and Three Cygnets, Durham 071011
Amber, bit orangey, clear with rich creamy head, good lacing.
Aroma....light.....caramel malt, bready, light hop, some apple
Taste of caramel malt, light bitter hops, appley.
Smooth, creamy mouthfeel. Not much finish - some caramel malt.
A nice beer, smooth but a bit appley. Cost only I think £1.60/pt. Incredible value for money!

Drunk after visiting Sheff for footy, Good beer at amazingly low price. Had to ask the bat maid if she’d added up wrong as it was so cheap compared to the Manc city centre prices I’m used to

Cask at Sam Smiths The Cock Tavern, London. Pours an amber colour with a creamy white head. Aroma is subtle with a light maltiness. Light to medium body, mild carbonation. Sweet caramel ice cream, cakey. OK. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

tom10101 (3906) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 8, 2014
Handpumped @ Ye Olde Cheschire Cheese (Greater London). Slightly hazy amber with a medium mostly lasting beige head and good lacing. Aroma is of caramel, mineral presence and fruity notes, but there’s a little something off that I can’t recognize. Taste is also of caramel, fruity notes and mineral presence with a very light bitterness along with, again, something off that I can’t recognize. It’s really subtle, but it doesn’t take much to hinder low abv beer like a Bitter. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Creamy mouthfeel. Easily drinkable and tasty, but far from the best Bitter because there’s a little something off and it’s also a tad bland.

VRobertovich (37) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 3, 2014
Clear amber beer, low carbonation, with a small, foamy, off-white head. Refreshingly light-medium bodied. Simple, yet pleasant caramel malts, with a touch of apple and herbs, and a mild, citrus hop. Simple, but well balanced, and very drinkable.

AshtonMcCobb (3936) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 31, 2014
On cask at the Swan and Cygnets in Durham. Appearance - golden amber with a decent head. Nose - very elusive but some toffee in there. Taste - gentle toffee and sweet malt notes. Palate - light to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a fairly good finish. Overall - a solid and very drinkable bitter.
