Cask at The Bell Inn. Pours clear amber with a medium, creamy off-white head, medium retention with excellent lacing. Aroma is toast and cookie malt with dates and figs, light apple esters and earthy hops. Flavor is malt forward with moderate hops and bitterness and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

Average bitter. Flavors are all there. However, there’s a bit of distracting sourness too.

tombyars (1354) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - MAR 8, 2012
Tasted this at the Paisley Beer Festival in April 2007. Cask, gravity dispense. Clear dark amber in colour with a thin white head. Very slight hint of butterscotch in the short nose. Thin mouthfeel and poor lacing. Pale malts give a digestive biscuit base with gaia melon, juicy in the mouth. Dry hoppy resins give a dusty note to the quick aftertaste. Finish is edged malty with tart citrus peel notes evident. An ok session bitter.

DruncanVeasey (7160) - NUNEATON, Top 18, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JUN 30, 2011
The Baron. Dusty bronze with a creamy white top. Fairly nondescript aroma with hints of grassiness and plastic. Sharp mineral front overpowering a decent, lingering digestive aftertaste. Hints of aniseed. Just another substandard dull English bitter with zero hop character.

Leighton (10847) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 24, 2011
Cask at the Crosse Keys, JDW. Pours a cloudy amber with a fine, whitish head. Bready malt nose. Lightly sweet flavor, bit of yeast, slight wood, dough. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Kind of bland finish, light sugars, dough and yeast, faint herbal and earthy bitterness. Condition is lacking but it might not matter much here. Average at best.

flying_pig (936) - SCOTLAND - JUN 16, 2011
A nice, summery and drinkable despite not being my usual style preference. The bitter was a little to strong although this didn’t take too much away from the overall experience. Average al round and probably not one I would seek out again. * * * 1001 Beers to try before you die: * * *

Cask - The Bell Hotel (JDW), Norwich. Firm & creamy lacing off-white head, clear copper body. Tangy-sweet mid fruits on the nose. More tang on the palate with a fruit skin bitterness, some yeast & earth. Soft mouthfeel, a bit average on the palate with a short, dryish finish. Undefined & indistinct but drinkable.
