Cask handpull at Ye Cracke, Liverpool. Golden with thin white head. Oaky/hoppy aroma, nice warm citrus flavours in mouth before hops kick in. Some yeast, especially on aroma. Not convinced in best condition. Maybe a little tired

Nut brown, small white head. Honey sweetish flowery aroma. Sourish bitter, simple palate. I suppose sourness is intended. Basic session bitter.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask Conditioned at The Crawley Inn, Crawley, Oxon. A pale orange amber beer, as clear as a bell. A floral hoppy brew with a thin short head, plenty of heady, lemony and orange hop flavours, little malt backing. A word about the pub, this is a hippy, travellers comune within oxfordshire, very strange, not what you would expect in an English pub, but it has its place and the beer is always good.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Cask) Orange amber, reddish shine; slim white head, gone in seconds. Very flowery-bitter. Best English hops - yet unmistakably caramel malts. Nice hop flavours, just right balance, with citrussy-fruity aroma. The palate, however, is surprisingly lacking: harsh tones and quite empty. A good best bitter, shame about the palate.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I thought this was a pretty decent best bitter., but tasted very similar to the much weaker Bank Top Brydge bitter sampled at the same time. Golden colour, with a more malty character than expected and a touch of sulphur in the aroma. Fruity flavour, with citric, grassy hops putting in a late appearance. Cask (gravity dispense), Twickenham Beer Festival 2004.
