Towey1989 (591) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 15, 2015
Cask at The Congress, Longton. A clear golden colour with a thin white head. Aroma of lemon, honey, some caramel and floral hops, kind of like lemon sweets. Taste is the same of sweet caramel, light lemon, some honey and slight spicy, floral hops. Light bodied and soft carbonation. A dry, lemony hop bitterness in the finish. This is quite astringent after a while, quite boring too.

johndoughty (4273) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 9, 2015
Bottle. Golden and very clear with a small head. Subtle bitterness with hops very much in the background. An excellent beer that shows that you haven’t got to have a massive amount of strength to brew a pleasant and drinkable beer like this one.

Ye Olde Bull Ring Tavern, Ludlow. Cask. Clear pale gold beer, decent pale cream colour head. Palate is smooth with fine carbonation. Nice condition. Light malts, softish and with a little creamy sweetness. Light esters are well integrated. Modest citric hops on the back end, Light finish. It’s all very smooth and civilised and pretty drinkable!

RichardW (1736) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - OCT 5, 2014
Cask at Weavers Kidderminster. Dusty gold pale ale, low aroma with light lemon notes on the tongue. Nothing of any great note taste wise, slightly grainy sherbert finish.

AshtonMcCobb (3908) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 4, 2014
On cask at the Boathouse in Shrewsbury. Appearance - golden amber with a decent head. Some haze. Nose - apples predominantly but a touch of caramel in there too. Taste - apples and caramel well merged again. Palate - close to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a long dry finish. Overall - good though I prefer my bitters to be more biscuity.

minutemat (2496) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUL 20, 2013
Pint at The Royal Hill Inn, Oswestry. A good British bitter with grass, malts, grain and a dry bitterness to see it home.

ladnewton (1614) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 22, 2013
Cask at the Bell, Leominster, Herefordshire on 6th April 2013. Slightly hazy gold with thin white head. Cheesy yeasty aroma. Sweet fruits and malts in-mouth with citric tang. Bittersweet finish with developing sharp bitter note.

niquillis (1778) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - APR 17, 2013
On cask at The Fox, Chetwynd Aston. Pours golden amber, white head. A hint of caramel, slightly astringent. An average bitter. Disappointing as other Three Tuns ales have been very good.
