chriso (7513) - London, Greater London, - OCT 5, 2012
Cask (handpump) at Sir Christopher Hatton, Holborn on 4 September 2012. More amber than pale in appearance. Loose off-white head. Slightly clammy, soft malt on the nose. Quite earthy on the palate. A touch buttery in aroma and flavour. I was expecting something a bit zesty and golden but it had as much of a traditional bitter feel. Acceptable, but both St Austell and Nicholsonís can do better than this. Maybe not in the greatest nick so flagged for re-rate.

Cask. Light body, smooth, light bitterness, grassy. A bit boring after drinking a half.

Scopey (11790) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 20, 2016
Cask at the Kingís Head in Mayfair. It pours clear deep amber with a medium white head. The aroma is earthy, brown bread, toffee and biscuit. The taste is smooth, bitter - sweet, malt-driven, brown bread, biscuit, toffee, toasted nut and some orange marmalade on the back-end. Finish is dry. Medium body and soft carbonation. Well-rounded and rather drinkable bitter. Decent.

Cask pour at St Georges Tavern, Central London. Pours medium dark amber with a beige head. Aroma is caramel, fruity esters. Flavor is caramel, grass and wildflower hop. Good balance. Bitterness persists after the sip. Not my favorite style, but this is good for what it is. No flaws.

katrinaez (1153) - norristown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 20, 2015
It matches what a pale should be. Again very creamy to match the London styles. Orange amber color. Hops are light but present and then bitters show at the end. Nice. Tap in London.

Cask in Drum and Monkey. Amber colour with a thin but creamy white head. Fruity aroma, malty taste with orangey undertones. Dry finish. Decent house beer

RickFifty (985) - Fredrikstad, NORWAY - MAR 25, 2015

ClubGonzo (5307) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAR 9, 2015
On tap @ The Clachan (Soho), London. Clear amber body, medium creamy white head. Nose is mild malty notes, caramel, bread and hints of red fruits. Taste is mild nutty tones, caramel, biscuits and hints of biscuits and straw. Light, near-watery body, soft carbonation. Goes down like water, but at the end of the day this is just another classically boring bitter.
