jmgreenuk (4075) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 21, 2014
Cask at the Wellington, Birmingham. Poured a clear medium amber with a frothy white head. The aroma is malt, citrus barnyard caramel. The flavour is medium bitter with a big malt, grapefruit citrus hop bitter palate and a short bitter finish. Medium to light bodied with soft carbonation. Iíve never had a bitter quite like this before I must say. Lots of flavour and really refreshing.

tombyars (1348) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - DEC 6, 2011
First tasted this bitter in the Bull Inn, Paisley, in May 1995. Cask, handpump dispense. Crystal clear amber in colour with a thin creamy white head. Slight citrus floral note in the short hoppy aroma. Thin resiny mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malt base gives a weak digestive biscuit base with hints of creamy toffee and raisin fruit. Slightly dry hop prickle in the short earthy aftertaste. Bitter sweet finish is rather weak with dusty lemony hops edging it. An ok session bitter but rather bland though.
