Cask at The Priory Arms, Stockwell. In appearance, aroma and flavour, very much a classic bitter - simple, balanced beer. A bit of woodiness to the flavour but this didn’t taste like a beer that’s been supreme British champion four times. Looking down the comments, it seems that it can vary from average to sublime - I must have caught it at the former.

Cask at Hale’s Pub, Harrogate. Pours a great-looking clear gold with an average size mostly-lasting creamy white head. Nice lacing on the glass. Mild aroma of sweet malt, fruit and hops. Slightly mild but tasty flavour of sweet malt, fruit and hops with a decent bitter finish. Medium bodied, creamy mouthfeel. Great stuff, an excellent session Bitter!

Draught at various pubs in London. A fully golden brown beer with a whitish head. The nose is of hops and caramel. Rather earthy with some sulphur. The taste is mainly of marmite. Earthy. The mouthfeel wasn’ t impressive at all. The beer left a beautiful lacing. Decently hoppy with a bitter finish. This bitter lacks in power.

[CASK: The Metropolitan, West Didsbury, Manchester 04/08/06] A very pleasing taste, quite light and sweet. Pale and easy drinking. Citrus taste makes it undistandable why it’s Marilyn Monroe’s favorie pints.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: APR 16, 2011 Cask conditioned at the Victoria, Clifton Lido, Bristol 15/4/07. This pint was served in an excellent state of quality, hence the rating. Golden with thin, lacy head. Plenty of hops and elderflowers in the aroma. Excellent bitter flavour with a hint of biscuity malt in the finish. One of the UK’s best and far better than the bottled version [4.0]. Re-rate 2011 at the Mall, Clifton, Bristol. Far sweeter than I remembered, with some toffee notes and less crisp malts, Nothing special [3.2]
