jmgreenuk (5613) - Kuala Lumpur, - APR 27, 2012
Cask at the Tontine Hotel, Ironbridge. This reminds me of the beer my Dad used to drink, but better. A classic English bitter that begs to be served on the warm side. It hardly touches the back of my throat! The slightly fruity aftertaste is its signature. Pour me another Landlord! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

minutemat (2252) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - JAN 15, 2014
Cask @ Coach & Horses, Shrewsbury. Has a light sweetness with a faint fruity bitterness. A pleasant, if rather unremarkable, bitter. Will attempt to re-rate from a bottle.

Unpretty golden brown. Aroma is flowery yet sturdy. Heavenly taste which plays with you, using light hoppy caramel notes. Mouthfeel full as ya like.

AshtonMcCobb (3674) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 6, 2013
50cl bottle from the Spar in Rhos on Sea. This was definitely the best of the 4 beers from this brewery that I found there - there’s plenty of toffee, biscuits, even hints of ginger and dark chocolate. These come through on both taste and aroma. The palate is close to medium in body and it achieves that crunchy texture and clean finish I want in a Bitter. Well brewed, sir!

I loved this. A great medium body, well balanced and fully rounded traditional bitter. Ends with fruity bitter hop flavours which linger in the mouth.
