chriso (7513) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 16, 2004
Pale amber colour. Soft, aromatic, citrus nose. Surprisingly, the flavours major more on malt than on hops. Starts sweet, with rustic malt and becomes drier going into the finishing straight. The restrained hop presence is green and a little clammy. Not a bad session bitter but a bit soft and short of bite for a higher mark. Cask (handpump), Head of Steam, Euston, London.

UPDATED: JUN 9, 2004 Rating #450. Cask Conditioned, Royal Standard, Wooburn Common, Bucks (Gravity Dispense). Standard light bitter, not up to the may bee sampled in the same evening. Very drinkable all the same.

imdownthepub (13232) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2004
Cask Conditioned at The Three Tuns, Alcester, Warks. Pale amber beer with bubbly head. Light session bitter with a thin flavour although there is a little lemony hoppiness. Largely unexiting.

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - SEP 5, 2003
Cask Conditioned, the Bay View Inn, Widemouth Bay, Cornwall.
The beer tried was actually labelled Kitches Klassic but in actual fact it was Skinners Coastliner with a bit of late dry hopping (with Skinners blessing of course). The Landlord, Dave Kitchener, knows what he likes and has modified this light weight bitter to give it a heavy weight flavour without the punch. Lovely Golden colour, delivered with a large frothy head. Very clear. Immaculate condition and presentation (as I found with all the beers at this pub). Lovely big hop aroma and taste.
