"As a result of brewing this beer in Yorkshire Squares, it has a full-bodied roasted malt flavour with just a hint of caramel. Tetley’s Cask also has a smooth hop character and bitterness derived from English hops."

Cask at the Gilmore Arms, Llandridod Wells. Pours dark gold with a small head. Aroma is light vinegar and dark fruits. Taste has a little bread and lightly sour dark fruits. Not in the best condition.

niquillis (1910) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 27, 2015
Cask at New Inn, Great Preston. Pours caramel brown with an off white head. Watery, so so watery, biscuit finish. This is truly shocking, even worse than mass produced keg bitter.

prawlie (1303) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 17, 2015
Third of a pint on draft at the Tennants Arms in the Yorkshire Dales. Earthy, dry. A pleasant bitter, and a lot better than I was expecting (or remembered).

Holmen2 (1999) - NORWAY - MAY 17, 2015
From cask at Circus tavern with KL, LH and KS 10.05.15. Golden. Dense and persistent off-white head and lacing. Caramel and malt in aroma and taste, balanced with English hops in aroma. Slightly crude bitterness in aftertaste. A bit waterish and metallic.

TedE (592) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - APR 2, 2015
Pint on tap at The Castle View, Deganwy. Creamy fruity nose, still golden/bronze beer with solid creamy head. Medium body, bitter at first but finishes with a little toffee. There’s a touch of sour fruitiness in there somewhere. Nothing special but good session ale.

Iznogud (1549) - CROATIA - NOV 5, 2014
Cask at The Isles Inn, Portree. Sold as Isles Inn Cask Ale by Tetleys, abv matches so I guess this is the one. Pours amber orange with beige head. Bittersweet, caramel, slightly fruity and grassy.

A well kept Tetley’s is a great session bitter. Smooth, fairly malty. Not overly bitter or powerful.

jjsint (1552) - Ely, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - AUG 20, 2014
Cask at the Roscoe Head, Liverpool. Golden with a thin white head. Just kind of sits there like a dead goldfish. A bit of caramel-toast-malt in the aroma but not much else. Bittersweet taste with the bitter asserting itself in the finish. Thin and lifeless palette. Short finish. Not actively bad but almost completely devoid of personality, like a zombie beer.
