harrisoni (12674) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 27, 2006
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

TBone (11926) - Pori, FINLAND - OCT 13, 2005

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

imdownthepub (9636) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 19, 2003
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.

maeib (8391) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2007
Cask conditioned - handpump - Criterion Leicester. A gold coloured beer with a whitish thin head. The aroma is thin, but thereís a touch of citrus. The taste is fruity with hints of pineapple and lemon. A bit prickly in the mouth. Average.

JorisPPattyn (7717) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - AUG 10, 2003
(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.

chriso (7344) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 7, 2004
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.
