Tastes of caramel and old manís pubs. But when fresh has some classic dried hops to it. Decent bitter but nothing special.

Travlr (20881) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 21, 2015
Cask at the George and Dragon in Chichester, at the recommendation of locals who praised the condition of Landlord on these premises. Clear golden amber color, white head. Aroma of caramel and light fruit. Taste is lightly bitter caramel, light body. Easy drinking but uninspiring.

@ The Rising Sun Berko. Pours a lightish amber with hints of haze and a small light tan head. The smell is toasted malt, biscuit, a bit earthy. The taste is toasted malt, biscuit ending with grassy dry hops. The body is light+ withmild/fine carbonation.

Pretty decent bitter. Light to moderate malt, a touch of sweet caramel, biscuit, slightly fruity mild bitter finish. Good session ale.

Clear amber beer with a thin head. Light, bready smell. Taste is tangy fruit and hops. I think itíd be sickly over a session but itís nice.

Cask. At Walton hotel - so overpriced. Resinous hoppy nose. Copper with thin top. The awards come from its balance and it remains a beer that others should study precisely because they go overboard on hops. Or arcane flavours.If this was the only beer available I would be happy if bored.

Cask at Bennets. Peppery spice and biscuit maltiness. Very smooth and drinkable. For me this pretty much sets the benchmark for traditional bitters.

Hippoman (646) - Durham, ENGLAND - JUN 16, 2015
Cask at The Garden House, Durham, £3.75/pint. Pours mid-amber with thin white head. Aroma is lightly biscuity, woody and nutty. Opens with slight fruity sweetness before a long, bitter finish on a very smooth palate. Good. Justifiably has a great reputation and a great all-rounder, but there are definitely more exciting beers out there.

On Cask with a sea view at the Old Chain Pier, Trinity, Edinburgh. Looks good in the foreground of a stunning scene. Creamy head. Golden amber. Biscuity aroma. It is indeed a nice Bitter with good old fashioned bitter to malt sweetness ratio. Quaffable, smooth, nutty caramel. Not my favourite style but appreciated. Aye...
