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 at the Elephant and Castle W8. A perfectly acceptable session bitter, not too strong, average levels of bitterness, slight hint butter, slight hint chalk, tiny tiny citrus. Easily drinkable, easily forgettable.

Cask - Bready malts and light bitterness. Clear gold with a rich white head. Tastes just as it smell with some light grains. Decent, but not interesting.

Cask fresh on at Drum & Monkey, Glasgow, 23/7/14. Light malt and floral hop aroma, dense white head reflecting somewhat high carbonation of first pint served from cask; hence, good lacing. Fine balance of biscuity malt and light hoppiness, good body for its gravity, with a mouthfeel suggesting a stronger ale; reminds me of a good pint of Theakstonís Best Bitter.
