Cask in the Shepherd’s Rest, Sowerby Bridge. Pours amber with a cream head. A pretty standard bitter with biscuity malt and some marmalade notes. Nice enough.

allmyvinyl (2795) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 8, 2013
Cask at The New Bridge, Newcastle. Hadn’t realised this was a pseudonym for the Best. Clear amber pour decent white head and lacing. Malty aromas, toffee malty taste. Sweet finish, thin. Not very interesting bitter.

jamesie1857 (1330) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 28, 2013
On cask at Stalybridge Buffet Bar October 20, 2013 - Not the most inspiring pint, looked good with its perfectly clear amber body, and pillowy white top, but underneath it was just bland. The nose had a soft malty character to it, a bit of sweet caramel, but the taste was watery with not much interest in it.

Theydon_Bois (7904) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - OCT 9, 2013
Cask at the Golden Lion, Osmotherley, 04/10/13. Clear copper golden with a good sized off white head. Nose is light caramel, bready malt, light fruit, a little thin in aroma but what there is carries pleasant notes. Taste carries a touch more depth, caramel, fruit notes, bread dough. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, smooth on the palate, light bitter notes in the finale. Ok bitter.

wimpyjoe (3483) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 6, 2013
Copper amber in colour with a small head. It has a light bitterness as its character and is an easy to drink session ale with some light malts.

maeib (8574) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - FEB 12, 2013
Cask conditioned handpump Veritas Leeds 06/02/13. A copper coloured beer with a white head and lace. Very plain clean and harmless but therefore a little dull. Some biscuity notes. Citrus if you search for it. certainly drinkable but for some reason I expected more.
